Usher

I'm Being Stalked --

She Thinks We're Married

EXCLUSIVE

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.

In the video on her fb, she sounds like a moose in heat, or the same as Bobbi Kristina. Look at her jobs- worked at Chuckee Cheese but says she is a nurse and will be a clinical psychhologist! NUTJOB

Well... Her ex-husbands twitter account is @KanyeTheOG. He only tweeted for a short while... lucky for us they were ALL tweets to his ex-wife and her crazy ways.

PS Her twitter name is now @UsherJRaymondIV, profile pic of a baby crib and all. I'm guessing the "J" stands for Jones... He must have wanted her maiden name?!?!

PPS This chick is crazy!

PPPS You can find anything using Google.

She has a video featuring her daughter titled 'sexually assualted'. In another she states that she is inside of a homeless shelter and in this one she says she was applying to work at "the Kroger". In the youtube comments of this one she says "him being alive and well is a bigger asset". I think she may actually be filming from inside a mental ward. She needs help and he needs to be protected from her.

Judging from the garbage he's putting out as a "product" these days, I am not at all surprised he has nut cases chasing him around. Interesting new fan base but entirely appropriate.

She's lying! Sorry, she is hidious! Doesn't even look clean. I don't believe Usher would touch her if he borrowed someone else hand let it own his "Peter!" Wishful thinking "Physcho!"

Whoever this James Hall character is, he did a bang up job at conning this poor girl. She seems to be a little 'off' and may be homeless/a mental patient (not judging - this is based on her other youtube posts). She was clearly targeted because of these factors, and James Hall was able to receive money who knows what else as a result. I feel for her, because as right as Usher may be about the stalking factor, I honestly feel they have both been dupped by a third party. This girl does need some type of mental help, and maybe this will secure that for her. She doesn't, however, deserve to be ridiculed.
