Accused David Letterman extortionist Robert Halderman watched idly by as his girlfriend, Stephanie Birkitt, passionately kissed the late night talk show host in a parked car in the driveway of Halderman's Norwalk, Connecticut home two months ago, the New York Post reported.

Halderman, a CBS 48 Hours producer, and Birkitt broke up a short time later; Birkitt, 34, moved into a Manhattan apartment shortly thereafter, leading many to believe the infidelity was a motivating factor as to why Halderman would allegedly attempt to blackmail the married Letterman for $2 million.
