Woman convicted of harassing Cohen

Leonard Cohen's former business manager has been found guilty of harassing the singer-songwriter.

Prosecutor Sandra Jo Streeter says the jury also determined Kelley Lynch repeatedly violated a restraining order by repeatedly calling and emailing the star.

Cohen testified against Lynch during her trial in LA, telling jurors he felt threatened by the volume and tone of her calls and emails, which contained numerous expletives and described the singer as her enemy.

He acknowledged that he had "an intimate relationship" with Lynch, but broke ties with her.

Lynch's attorneys claimed she was angry that Cohen had fired her and felt he ruined her reputation and that she never tried to personally confront him.
