Usher’s Scary Stalker Brought To Mental Hospital Instead Of Jail
A few days ago, we brought you the story of Usher’s alleged stalker, who we opined might be the scariest celebrity stalker this year. Now, the woman who showed up to Usher’s house claiming that she is his wife has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital for mental evaluation.
Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw was arrested in front of Usher’s Georgia home last weekend after insisting that she was the singer’s wife. The 26-year-old disobeyed a criminal trespass warning, pounding on Usher’s door and demanding that he let her in Sunday. When the authorities arrived, she told them that she was his wife and had simply misplaced her keys. Usher secured a temporary restraining order against her, and she then posted a video to YouTube defending her actions, making several pointed accusations against him.
New details have emerged, as TMZ has secured the incident report from Johns Creek PD, explaining ti original incident in more depth. Cops responded to a suspicious person call Sunday from Usher himself, who had spotted Rakestraw on one of his security cameras. When police arrived, she was sitting on the front porch playing with her iPad. Cops identified her, having issued her a warning the previous day, and placed her under arrest for violating a criminal trespass warning.
Once in police custody, she continued insisting that she was Usher’s wife, and that he makes all of her decisions for her. Mentally unfit for jail, the police took her to Emory Johns Creek Hospital instead, where she was later admitted for a mental evaluation, according to TaleTela.
She was released and given a copy of the charges against her. Usher’s stalker is set to appear in court next month.
