A woman accused of breaking into music mogul Simon Cowell's London home has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Leanne Zaloumis was arrested on 24 March (12) after allegedly using a brick to smash a downstairs window and sneak into Cowell's $14.4 million house, coming face-to-face with the horrified Britain's Got Talent judge.
She appeared at Isleworth Crown Court on Friday (06Jul12) and pleaded not guilty to two counts of affray and burglary, although she did confess to cracking the glass.
Judge John Denniss then banned the 30 year old from making future contact with Cowell, ordered her to wear an electronic tag, refrain from going within 300 yards (274 metres) of his property, abide by a strict 7pm to 7am curfew, and remain at her home address at all times.
According to the Press Association, Zaloumis was granted conditional bail after spending three months in custody as sentencing has been delayed due to administrative complications.
