NEW YORK (PIX11) – Retired New York City firefighter Robert Linhart managed to avoid jail time after authorities say he stalked Madonna near her Manhattan home.

According to police, Linhart was busted twice for stalking the Material Girl outside her Central Park West home.

Linhart was sentenced to probation Wednesday. The 61-year-old told reporters outside of court, he was over the pop star, saying he was no longer infatuated with her.

“I don’t feel the same about her,” he said.
