    Katherine Thurston is going to get evaluated.

    The 47-year-old homeless woman—who was arrested and charged for stalking and burglary last month after she allegedly ran past the staff at New York City's Gotham gym and threw a razor filled with her own pubic hair at Hugh Jackman as he was working out—was ordered to take a psychological exam in court yesterday, E! News confirms.

    NEWS: Hugh Jackman thanks fans for support after alleged stalker's arrest

    Courtroom sources tell us that during her arraignment on a felony indictment in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday, Katherine Thurston's defense attorney, Liz Beal, requested the exam to determine the defendant's psychological fitness. Beal was not immediately available for comment.

    Results should be delivered before her next court hearing on June 19.

    Thurston was charged with stalking in the 4th degree and then subsequently slapped with a burglary charge in addition to misdemeanor stalking and harassment, E! News learned. Sources close to the Manhattan District Attorney's Office confirmed that the burglary count handed down in a grand jury indictment is a felony, which carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.

    After the events first took place, the Australian actor tweeted, "Thank you all for your support over the past days….really appreciate all your kind words."
