Sometimes glitz and glamour is not all a celebrity receives with their fame! R&B singer Usher has found that his fame has come with an extra little something: a stalker!
The heartthrob is currently in fear for his safety due to a dangerous stalker. According to TMZ.com, the delusional woman, 26-year-old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, claims that she is married to Usher!
Usher has received a temporary restraining order on Ms. Jones-Rakestraw, after she showed up uninvited to the singer's Georgia home last Saturday. Court documents and sources close to the Raymond family claim that Darshelle banged on the door and demanded to be let in.
Police arrived at the Georgia home and merely told Darshelle to leave, which she did.
But the following day, Darshelle returned to the house. The police we called to the home again, and sources say that Ms. Jones-Rakestraw said she was Usher's wife and she merely misplaced her keys to the house. Cops obviously didn't believe Darshelle's made up story and she was arrested.
Usher instantly requested a temporary restraining order against the deranged woman, and stated that Darshelle:
"Placed [him] in reasonable fear for his own safety and/or the safety of his immediate family."
The R&B singer plans to make the restraining order a permanent thing, just to be on the safe side!
But, Darshelle is not quite cool with the whole situation! On Wednesday, Usher's fake wife posted a video on YouTube claiming that she is not a stalker! She says that she has a close relationship with singer. So close in fact, that she claims Usher has been giving her money to better her living conditions, and even assists her in starting a music career.
Darshelle states in the video:
I am in love with Mr. Raymond, but I do not appreciate the fact that he has tried to trash me with stalking. If he does charge me with that, that does mean that he has considerably defamed my character and slandered me.
Hopefully Usher has realized that sometimes, fame comes with a very scary price!
