I'm Being Stalked --

She Thinks We're Married

6/28/2012 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usher believes his life is in jeopardy ... claiming he's being stalked by a dangerous delusional woman who is convinced she's MARRIED to the pop star. 

TMZ has learned ... 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.

Cops didn't buy the story ... because USHER'S NOT MARRIED ... and placed Darshelle under arrest.

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."

Usher is hoping to make that order more permanent during a hearing next month.

For Darshelle's part -- she posted a YouTube video Wednesday, claiming Usher has been secretly funneling her cash since last year, promising to make living arrangements for her. She also says he promised to help with her music career.

In the video, Darshelle insists, "I'm not a stalker ... [Usher] has officially slandered me and defamed my character." She says she plans to file defamation charges against Usher soon.

Calls to Usher's camp about the YouTube clip have not been returned.

According to his ex-wife, U. is a bona fide philanderer so she could be telling the truth.

Welp, there's the magic sentence, "He promised to help with my music career". Why do these morons go this route, it doesn't get them 15 minutes and then through the door of a career. If anything now, no one in the business will want to touch her because she's clearly nuts.

She presents herself as calm, and cognizant.
But...she allegedly told police she was his wife, and lost her keys.
And Usher is calling police and filing restraining orders, no reason to if they knew each other as she stated.
Think she's lonely and has let it turn into an unhealthy issue in her head, kinda feel bad for her but that doesn't change the fact that it can become dangerous for Usher and his family if she's showing up after being escorted out.
Guy has to protect himself and family.

Poor boo boo sounds like she was scammed. Her contacts happened through phone and email. Why would he need her to send him money? Predators love naive victims.
His ex wife was the other woman when he was with Chilli from TLC, she can't complain karma is a bitch. Usher should have listened to his mother, when your mother want come to your wedding there has to be a reason.

No way would Usher have any type of a relationship with someone that homely. He was going to "exchange finances" with her? What the heck does that mean? Idiot.

Probably some fan he boned and promised if she got 'nekkid' he''d marry her and bring her on tour and she took him literally like so many dumb ho's out there do when it comes to "Trayvon" , like all these chicks that got burned by this fake rapper Named "Tim Dogg" go look that guy up, that's what all these 'rappers' are. They're the luckiest blacks on planet earth frankly and should get on their knees and kiss the ground every time they walk outside their ancestors were brought here so they could get filthy rich... yea, they have no opportunities do they? MY azzz, the freaking president is black so quit whining, get jobs and stfu, everyone can't be a rapper or Kobe Bryant.
