R&B singer Usher Raymond is seeking another restraining order against his longtime stalker for harassing him and attempting to extort money from him, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
It's the 2nd time Usher has asked the court to prevent Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, 30, from harassing him at home and on tour.
In 2012, Jones-Rakestraw was arrested for trespassing at Usher's home in a guard-gated subdivision in Alpharetta, GA.
The trespassing incident forced Usher to put his Alpharetta mansion on the market and move with his 2 sons to a rented $2.5 million home in northwest Atlanta, where his oldest son, Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned in a swimming pool accident in 2013.
According to court documents obtained by the AJC, Jones-Rakestraw left phone messages for the singer's attorney John Mayoue, threatening to follow Usher on tour if he didn't send her money.
"I drove to Chicago and I want him to Western Union me some money or either give me something to get to work and I’m not playing with him,” Jones-Rakestraw said in a message. “I’m tired of the games. If I can’t eat, he can’t eat.”
According to the AJC, Jones-Rakestraw was arrested on a contempt of court charge on Dec. 6, and is being held in the Fulton County jail. She was taken into custody 3 days before Usher's Atlanta concert at Phipps Arena.
In June 2012, Jones-Rakestraw showed up twice at Usher’s Johns Creek home, where she was arrested for criminal trespassing and ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, the latest petition states. She was ordered to spend 20 days in the Fulton County jail.
Jones-Rakestraw also allegedly told a member of Usher’s security team that she planned to follow him on tour and “get him” unless he gave her money, the court filing states. Usher recently finished a national tour, but will begin a European tour in February, according to his website.
