Uma Thurman’s convicted stalker can exit jail only if he coughs up big bail bucks in his latest brush with the object of his obsession.

Jack Jordan, 39, will have to come up with $250,000 in cash or a $500,000 bond, a Manhattan judge ruled today.

Jordan was arraigned last week on charges of stalking and violating a restraining order after he allegedly tried to call Thurman in October, reports said.

He was convicted in 2008 of stalking and harassing the Oscar-nominated star and sentenced to three years probation. Jordan was ordered not to contact the actress for five years.

Prosecutors said Jordan phoned Thurman on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30 before he was arrested at his parents’ home in Maryland last month. Prosecutors said he told police he was drunk when he called Thurman.

Jordan had previously sent Thurman disturbing pictures, such as one of a bride with her head ripped off, and showed up at her movie set and Manhattan home.

Jordan’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
