Had her marriage to Andre Agassi annulled so she can remarry in the Catholic Church.
She was stalked by 41-year-old Mark Ronald Bailey (a New Jersey accountant from Los Angeles), while he was armed with a handgun, over a period of three months (October 1999 to January 2000). He was arrested on 1/10/2000 but pleaded not guilty. The criminal complaint alleged Bailey "did maliciously and repeatedly follow and harass Brooke Shields, and made a credible threat...with the intent that she be placed in reasonable fear for her safety, and for the safety of her immediate family." On 9/5/2000, Bailey pleaded no contest to stalking and terrorizing her; he was ordered to undergo counseling and psychological evaluations, after prosecutors claimed he sent more than 100 cards and letters to her over the past 15 years...causing her "extreme fear and shock." The terms of his probation include staying away from her for 10+ years and keeping his distance from "her family, her household members, her employees, her employers or any of her agents." Ironically, seven years prior to this entire ordeal, Shields had won critical acclaim for her portrayal of another real-life stalking-victim (whose case inspired America's first anti-stalking law): California computer-engineer Laura Black, whose story was told in and by the TV docudrama I Can Make You Love Me (1993) (TV).

Nude photos of Brooke, taken by photographer Garry Gross, when Shields was 10, were displayed in Manhattan's American Fine Arts Gallery, September 10th, 1998. The actress had sued Gross in 1981, tearfully testifying that the pictures embarrassed her, but a court decision in 1983 gave Gross the okay to display the photos.
