Usher Alleged Stalker Arrested
A woman has been arrested for allegedly stalking Usher in Atlanta.
Darshelle Jones is accused of violating a restraining order earlier this month when she came too close to Usher at a recording studio. Jones was allegedly filming Usher from across the street with an iPad. But according to the arrest report, she was just 100 feet away from him, way closer than the 200 yards mandated by the court-ordered stay-away order.
Jones was subsequently taken into custody and booked for aggravated stalking. She is still behind bars, though it’s unclear for how long she’s been in jail. Usher has been battling to keep Jones away from him since at least 2012, when, as Gossip Cop reported, he first sought a temporary restraining order against her after she showed up at this home and claimed to be his “wife.”
The singer has not publicly commented on this latest development. He was in New York this past weekend as a surprise guest at the Puff Daddy and the Family “Bad Boy Reunion Tour” concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. And days before that, Usher was in France for the Cannes Film Festival, where his new movie Hands of Stone premiered.
Primarily, though, Usher is based in Atlanta, where he lives with his two sons and wife Grace Miguel, whom he married last fall. Gossip Cop will have updates.
