Despite the delicate condition of his step-son who was declared brain-dead after a jet ski accident Friday, Usher and Jones-Rakestraw were in attendance in an Atlanta courtroom this morning. During the hearing, the judge issued the restraining order which bands the star's stalker from going anywhere close to Usher and his kids for a year.
According to the singer, she pounded on his front door and demanded to be let in. Even after calling the police, and being warned to stay away from the property, Jones-Rakestraw showed up the next day doing the same thing. Sources told TMZ that she tried to convince the officers she was Usher's wife, and had misplaced her keys. The police knew that the singer wasn't married, and promptly placed her under arrest.
Several days following her arrest Darshelle posted a video on YouTube claiming Usher has been secretly giving her money since last year, and was promising to make living arrangements for her. She also claimed that the star was promising to help her with her music career. In the video entitled "Addresses Accusations In Regards to Mr. Usher Raymon," Jones-Rakestraw defends herself insisting that she is not a stalker. "I'm not a stalker ... [Usher] has officially slandered me and defamed my character."
According to the video, she is planning on filing defamation of character charges soon against Usher.
Usher's 11 year old son Kyle Grover has been declared brain dead by doctors after a tragic accident Friday which saw him hit in the head by a jet ski. The ski's driver was reportedly a family friend.
