Usher Has a Stalker Who Thinks They Are Married, Arrested for Trespassing
Usher has a scary stalker. According to TMZ, the singer recently obtained a restraining order against 26-year-old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, a woman that believes she’s married to the “Climax” creator.
Court documents reveal that Darshelle showed up to Usher’s Georgia home uninvited on June 23 and proceeded to bang on his front door, demanding to be let inside.
Police were called to the scene and issued the overzealous fan to leave the property. However, Darshelle returned the next day and authorities were called once again to remove her from the area. When questioned by local cops, Darshelle claimed she was Usher’s wife and simply forgot her keys inside.
She was then placed under arrest. Usher was granted a temporary restraining order soon after which he hopes to make permanent in an upcoming court hearing.
In a bizarre twist, Darshelle has since taken to YouTube to tell the world about her affiliation with Usher. “I’m not a stalker … [Usher] has officially slandered me and defamed my character,” she says in the video below. The super fan also claims Usher has been sending her cash for months, promising to help her with her living situation and her music career.
According to the video, she plans to file defamation charges against Usher.
