The American woman accused of stalking Catherine Zeta-Jones has written a letter of apology to the star.

DAWNETTE KNIGHT - who is being held on $1 million (GBP555,000) bail - has penned a note to the OSCAR-winning actress, and her father-in-law Kirk Douglas, apologising for any "distress" she may have caused.

Knight, was arrested at her Beverly Hills home on 3 June (04) and charged with one count of stalking and 24 counts of criminal threats. She admits she is obsessed with Zeta-Jones' husband, Michael Douglas.

Zeta-Jones' lawyer RICHARD HERMAN released the letter which reads: "I was a confused young woman infatuated with Michael Douglas and have not rational explanations for my actions."

Her letter continues to explain she would "have never done anyone any harm and would never harm anyone".

She finishes: "It would be a wonderful good deed if you would all forgive me so that I can go back to college to finish my studies in child psychology."

Knight, 32, is being held in custody and could receive a prison sentence of up to 19 years if convicted.
