The lovelorn Pakistani loon accused of stalking Caroline Kennedy's daughter has been trying to contact the family for up to eight years

In court papers, prosecutors say Naeem Ahmed, 41, has been bombarding Tatiana Schlossberg, 20, with mushy notes and gifts since 2008. But Ahmed's lawyer said the apparent obsession started well before then. "It goes as far back as five to eight years," lawyer Gerald Hertz said, adding that his client wouldn't explain his interest in the Kennedy family. It's unclear why Manhattan prosecutors didn't include the earlier contacts in their criminal complaint, but it seems Kennedy's family may have contacted authorities after Ahmed tried twice to see Tatiana in person. The wannabe taxi driver, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, sent more than 40 e-card greetings and gifts like roses and balloons to the Yale student. In some of the notes, Ahmed addressed Schlossberg as "Hunny Bunny" and signed off as "Your Hubby." One card had a montage of bare-skin photos, piano keys, champagne flutes and a bed strewn with rose petals - and was accompanied by piano music. "I know you, I know the feeling of you, I know your shape, your sound, your warmth, and your taste. I know you, and I know that I want you, and I need you. . . . Always," it read. Ahmed was arrested Dec. 8, 2010 and is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail and a psychiatric evaluation.
