Not even a court order could stop an Ashanti stalker from keeping his distance from the R&B singer recently, now set to face her in court after violating said order by sending a series of X-rated messages to her.
Details on Douglas’ legal drama below…
In 2009, Devar Hurd was sentenced to jail for sending sexuality explicit messages to the ‘Happy’ singer’s mother, marking just one of many moves made by the model/personal trainer/ car salesman to stalk and harass the star and her family.
Today, five years after he was sentenced to jail, Hurd faced her mother in court, on trial again for sending more explicit messages and posing with her unsuspecting sister at a charity, even though a court order forbids him for going anywhere near the ladies.
Representing himself, Hurd came face to face with Douglas’ mother and posed the following question to her when he spotted her in court:
You’re here why exactly?
Because you’re stalking my daughter. You had an order of protection, and you violated that order of protection. And I’m frightened for my family, especially Ashanti.
Ashanti is expected to testify at the trial and confront Hurd, who continued to harass her after spending two years in jail. In the space of a year, he sent her over 100 lewd messages, claiming that he felt the messages were harmless and merely “sex texting.”
Unfortunately, the nature of his messages were so explicit Ashanti was forced to boost security around her family home and pull out a rehearsal for an off-Broadway remake of ‘The Wiz,’ later going on to learn that his trial judge believed the stalker had a “delusional disorder.”
