On April 10 he found his way into The Weinstein Company building in Tribeca where she is currently interning and begged her to marry him. 30-year-old Jair Nilton Cardoso is said to be "emotionally disturbed" and has previously tried to gain access to the White House.

On April 13, he followed Malia out of her office. The next day he was questioned by the Secret Service in his apartment, who believe he has psychiatric problems and took him to a Brooklyn hospital for evaluation.

Agents have now reported him to New York police, although it's unclear whether he will be charged.

Malia, 18, is currently on a gap year and is believed to be enrolling at Harvard this autumn. She previously interned on the HBO series Girls, and the CBS series Extant.
