“I just want this woman to leave me and my family alone,” she alleges . “We have never met, e-mailed or had any correspondence, yet she has been targeting me constantly since she split with John. I have received calls threatening bodily harm against me, she has contacted my business contacts, spread false rumors about me and has even posted nasty messages on my website.”

Frederick is currently working with Ratzenberger’s lawyer to attempt to stop the alleged constant harassment.

“The police have told me to keep a record of everything and although I have not hired bodyguards both myself and my husband are very wary right now. I have a 12-year-old son and I just want this woman to stop and leave me alone.”

Multi-millionaire Ratzenberger filed a temporary restraining order against his former girlfriend McGrail. McGrail sent him several heated e-mails which obtained on Wednesday.

McGrail alleges that he watched pornography beside a minor and rebuffed her help in a business project in favor of Fredrick whom she believed he was dating.

“Allowing this tramp to take credit for my work is the end of the line for me!” she writes in one e-mail.

But three days later she adds: “I want you to love me, I’m scared of feeling this way.”

Catarina Frederick alleges that Ratzenberger paid for McGrail to get psychiatric treatment and believes that she is mentally unstable.

“This woman is unstable and John paid for her treatments. The truth is that he is a good man with a big heart but she has been diagnosed with psychosis,” she claims. “John and I remain friends and we stay in regular contact he very much regrets that I have been dragged into this sad situation.”

“Our relationship is purely platonic and we still work together on projects but this woman is behaving like a stalker and she is unstable.”
