Usher’s got it rough these days. On top of fighting for custody of his children in court and being exposed as a shameless cheat (if Tameka was telling the truth), now some woman is stalking him, so he says. I was going to say this isn’t just a regular fan but anyone who stalks someone else clearly is missing a few marbles, and according to Usher this woman might be missing a whole lot more because he says she thinks their married.
According to TMZ:
Usher has obtained a temporary restraining order against 26-year-old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw — who’s listed at 5’2″ … and weighs between 140 and 180 lbs.
According to court docs, Usher claims Darshelle showed up uninvited to his Georgia home on June 23 with the intention of harassing him and his family. Sources close to Usher say she pounded on his front door and demanded to be let in.
Cops were called to the scene … where they warned Darshelle to stay away from the property … and told her not to come back. We’re told Darshelle left the home … but not for long.
Usher says she returned the very next day. Cops were once again called to the scene … and sources tell us Darshelle tried to convince the officers she was Usher’s wife and had simply misplaced her keys.
Darshelle was placed under arrest and Usher immediately obtained a temporary restraining order, claiming Darshelle “placed [him] in reasonable fear for his own safety and/or the safety of his immediate family.” Ursh wants to make the restraining order permanent during a hearing next month and if he takes in this YouTube video that Darshelle posted online I’d say he has a good chance of making that happen.
In an attempt to clear her name, which she says Usher has slandered, Darshelle posted a video claiming that she and Usher have been exchanging money for over a year and that Usher was supposed to have been making living arrangements for her and helping her with her music career. That actually wouldn’t seem that off but it’s the way she’s telling the story and is trying to convince Usher that he really doesn’t realize what he did by placing a restraining order against her that makes her seem a little delusional. She says she has been an advocate for him and comforted him throughout his custody battle and now she won’t be able to do any of those supportive hings, including download his music through iTunes. She also says she’s in love with him. See what I mean?
On the other hand, Usher does have a bit of a bad rep with the ladies, so if he comes in front of the wrong judge looking at his pattern of misleading women, he might have a tougher time making this restraining order stick than he thinks. Check out the video here. Who do you think is telling the truth, Usher or Darshelle?
