A man charged with stalking Caroline Kennedy's daughter by showering her with flowers and messages referring to him as her "hubby" is set to undergo a psychiatric exam.

A judge ordered the exam Friday to determine whether Naeem Ahmed is mentally fit for court. The 41-year-old is being held at least until the exam is completed.

His lawyer says Ahmed feels he did nothing wrong and tried only to offer the family his love.

"He only sent love, he doesn't understand why he's here - that is why they ordered [a second] exam," lawyer Gerald Hertz said after a brief court appearance, the Daily News reported.

Hertz added that an initial psychiatric exam concluded that Ahmed is not dangerous but could benefit from medication and therapy.

Prosecutors say in court documents that Ahmed sent more than 40 messages to college-age Tatiana Schlossberg and her parents over two years. The documents say the missives continued even after a warning from the Kennedy family's security firm.

Ahmed faces misdemeanor harassment and stalking charges.
