Usher - Usher Wins Restraining Order Against Bogus Wife

R&B star Usher has obtained a temporary restraining order against a fan who insists she is his wife.
According to court documents, Usher claims Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, 26, showed up uninvited at his Georgia home on Saturday (23Jun12), pounded on his front door and demanded to be let in.
The singer called the police, who told Jones-Rakestraw to move on and she left. But the fan returned the next day, according to Tmz.com.
When the cops came back, the trespasser tried to convince the officers she was Usher's wife, and had simply misplaced her keys.
She was arrested and Usher filed for the restraining order. He is hoping to make it more permanent at a hearing next month (Jul12), claiming Darshelle "placed (him) in reasonable fear for his own safety and/or the safety of his immediate family."
Meanwhile, Jones-Rakestraw posted a video on YouTube.com on Wednesday (27Jun12), claiming Usher has been sending her cash since last year (11), promising to make living arrangements for her. She also alleges he promised to help with her music career.
In the video, she states, "I'm not a stalker... (Usher) has officially slandered me and defamed my character."
