Tyra Banks

Takes a Stand Against Alleged Stalker

4/29/2009 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyra Banks just took the stand in the trial of a man accused of stalking her -- a man who allegedly threatened to kill one of her employees for refusing to give him tickets to her show.

Tyra Banks: Click to watch
39-year-old Brady Green -- who has pled not guilty to misdemeanor stalking and harassment -- also sent love letters and flowers to Tyra and was arrested in March of 2008 for sneaking into her studio.

Tyra -- the first witness to take the stand -- told the court she's been forced to hire security because she's too scared to be alone.

Banks said Green is "more aggressive" than a regular fan -- but said "I don't fear for my life, I fear for my safety. I fear for my staff and people in my vicinity."

He faces a max of 90 days in jail if convicted.

UPDATE: Cross-examination is over, during which Green's lawyers tried to make the case that he never called, emailed or personally threatened Tyra.

Tyra's off the stand.

Just send him to jail for 90....and he'll be right back out and doing it again, somehow, some way. 90 days is nothing for pete's sake!

What's up with all these hard-core stalkers? There's enough of 'em for their own reality show.

Questions:

Why is Tyra never shown with a male date?
Is this guy too dark for Tyra's taste?
Could Tyra's nose get any smaller?
Why is Tyra letting herself get so fat?

Hey Tyra...he is black...and so are you! How can you possibly go against your own race? I thought the election of Obama was pretty clear that blacks don't go against their own, regardless of how different their views, opinions, murderous tendencies, etc.

What's wrong with you Tyra? Do you have a mind of your own or something?

What the hell are you talking about? What does color have to do with it! Are you black and playing race card because you are an ugly reject?
