Talk about taking stalking to new levels. Usher recently had to file a restraining order against a woman who claims the Grammy winner was her husband.
According to TMZ, 26-year-old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw showed up at the “Climax” singer’s home and pounded on the door to gain entry. The authorities were called and the woman was given her walking papers and told not to return to the premises. Whoever, she returned the following day and after police came back to the scene, she claimed Usher was her husband and she misplaced her keys. She was arrested for trespassing.
Following the incident, Usher obtained a restraining order, claiming she ‘placed him in reasonable fear for his own safety and/or the safety of his immediate family.’
In a ridiculous attempt to clear her name, Ms. Jones-Rakestraw released a Youtube video, insisting she’s not a stalker and that Usher was confiding his personal problems to her and also paying for her living arrangements.
“He has officially slandered me and defamed by character,” she says. “Me and Mr. Raymond had binding agreements to where he was supposed to pay for living arrangements for me…and also he would help me with my music career.”
She continues: “I have no other reason to contact Mr. Raymond and he knows that. I am in love with Mr. Raymond, but I do not appreciate the fact that he has tried to trash me with stalking.”
This is so bizarre…talk about crazy!
