Leanne Zaloumis, 30, returned to Isleworth Crown Court, west London, yesterday (02.08.12) to be sentenced for smashing a window at the property with a broken brick.

Judge Robert Winstanley banned Zaloumis from contacting the music mogul indefinitely and he also gave her a 12-month community order with a mental health requirement and a 12-month supervision order.

Zaloumis, of Catford, south east London, had admitted being in possession of a brick with the intent to damage or destroy property, and breaking a window at the house, at a hearing last month.

At that hearing, she was told she must stay at her home address, remain inside between 7pm and 7am and wear an electronic monitoring tag.

Judge John Dennis said at the earlier hearing that the 102 days she spent in custody following the incident was “sufficient punishment”.

Simon was in his bedroom when he heard a “loud bang” coming from his bathroom on 24 March so called his staff, who found Zaloumis.
