NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Actor Alec Baldwin's latest blow up with the media is over a Tweet a British reporter says Baldwin's pregnant wife, Hilaria, sent during James Gandolfini's funeral on Thursday.

Baldwin fired back with a  Tweet that read: "I'm gonna find you . . . you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna f--k . . . you . . . up." The Tweet was later deleted. He reportedly deactivated his account, too.

The reporter is George Stark of the Daily Mail.

But Hilaria Baldwin says the Tweets were not sent while she was inside the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in Morningside Heights.

"I don't bring my phone into church.There is something with the timeline. I don't understand Twitter. I don't believe in bringing my phone to church. That is my time with God… the fact that people have made it into other things is really shameful. I'd really like for all of this to go away and we can deal with having a baby soon," Baldwin told reporters camped outside her home on Friday.

In February, the NY Post reported that Baldwin told a female reporter he wanted to choke her to death. He's also reported to have used a racial slur against a photographer. The Post said Baldwin also called the cameraman a "crack head" and a "drug dealer."  Baldwin denied he said anything racist.  Both he and the photographer  filed complaints with the police.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
