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.

Its funny how crazy people don't know that they're crazy, but they think everyone else is crazy. I think she was just stupid and fell for a scam. She really thought she was the IT girl.

Like usher doesn't have enough on his plate as it is..he now has one more "silly" issue to deal with. The things people do for "fame" and "money", when going through hard times....sad...

Certified Psycho.
Please be careful.
She should have no problem proving bank transaction, emails, and voice mails if they do indeed exist.
I doubt they do.
I do not judge by looks but she truly does NOT appear to be someone Usher would deal with!
Usher, you should keep this video where she confesses she IS in love with you!
You will need it in court.

Regardless of whether or not there was an affair of some sort, she banging on the door, uninvited. She claiming to be his wife! She was told to leave by Usher and the police and came back. That is stalking!!! It doesn't matter if there was a prior relationship or not. You can't do that!! Broad is crazy!!!

All males are in danger of various forms of female attack.

Even seemingly sane rational females have been shown by so many news reports of acting in an emotion-laden, illogical, irrational and perverted manner.

Google MGTOW and/or Men Going There Own Way for advice on how to protect yourself from predatory, materialist and self-centered females.
