The man charged with stalking Ivanka Trump still plans to “win her over” but will let the real estate scion “come to me” after being ordered to stay away from the socialite in criminal court last week, the Daily News reported.
Massler, 27, was released on $10,000 bail last Thursday and sent back to his hometown of Reno pending a May 10 court appearance on stalking and harassment charges for sending threatening messages.
But he is still plotting to win Trump’s affections despite a court decision barring him from reaching out to her and her family.
"I've got a stalking charge, so that means I can't contact her. I won't, like, try to ever visit her directly," Massler told the News when the paper reached him at his mother's home in Reno Sunday.
"Instead, I'll become like a big-time millionaire, real estate mogul so that she's the one who contacts me," Massler added to the paper. "It will be more indirect, like, let the girls come to me."
Massler, who runs the "Ivanka Trump Fan Blog" and told Reno, Nev., police his real name was Cloud Starchaser when he was arrested on March 16, stalked Trump and her husband Jared Kushner through tweets and e-mails, prosecutors said last week.
Massler had previously threatened to commit suicide inside Trump’s jewelry store if he didn’t have an autographed photo sent to him, prosecutors said last week.
"My other option is to stalk in maniacal manner for this picture by becoming nothing other than a deranged celebrity stalker," he said, according to court documents.
On Sunday, Massler also contacted blogger/author Tucker Max, inexplicably asking him to play middleman between the alleged stalker and socialite.
"Obviously, right now she is probably not that into me since she filed these stalking charges and I'm in the doghouse with her, but later on I'm going to try to recover and then actually win her over," he wrote to Max, who the News reported has received other unsolicited e-mails from the accused stalker.
On Sunday, Massler’s mother apologized for her son’s actions to the New York Post.
"He wrote nasty things and crossed the line," Randee Massler told the paper. "I can feel for Ivanka Trump and her family. If he caused her to be afraid, I'm very sorry for that."
