Nothing says true love like a psychotic stalker texting your mom. A Manhattan Judge sentenced Devar Hurd to jail for relentlessly stalking and harassing washed up R&B singer Ashanti and her mom/manager Tina Douglas. The crazy guy claimed that he locked eyes with Ashanti at a concert in Chicago and ever since then was under the impression that they were in love. He began texting Tina raunchy images of himself masturbating and calling her, as well as Irv Gotti, in hopes to reach the singer. The judge says that Hurd has a very serious mental illness, saying “Mr. Hurd, I realize that you don’t want to hear this, but it’s obvious to me that you need help.”

Irv Gotti of Murder Inc. has said that he is splitting ways with has-been singer Ashanti because “the relationship has run its course” and that the “chemistry” just isn’t there. In other words, the singer’s last album did not perform as well s her previous ones. June 2008’s ‘The Declaration’ was the only one of her studio albums to not go platinum. Sorry Ashanti but there are much hotter and original artists out there now than when you initially came into the scene. Her music just wasn’t that interesting anymore when singers like Rihanna and Lady Gaga were making waves last year.
R&B singer Ashanti is featured in the June 2008 issue of Maxim. The singer is sexily promoting her new album ‘The Declaration’ which will drop in stores on June 3. Ashanti talks about the album in her interview saying “I’m declaring that I’m here. The album is a new sound for me. I found out so much about myself working with new people. Everything had kind of been in-house for me, so I was used to having a security blanket—like Linus from Peanuts with his blue blanket. I’m declaring that it’s been four years and a lot of people had questions, but I’m here, baby.”
Ashanti took the most beautiful mugs shot I’ve ever seen when the R&B songstress, aka Inmate #03529480 struck it nasty. But if you think that she was arrested for DUI or drug possession then you’re wrong. Unlike most celebrities today, Ashanti is only faking it. The picture is actually from the new version of her ‘The Way that I Love You’ music video which is expected to drop on Wednesday. She goes to prove us wrong and that there are still some relatively good girls in the industry. You are not going to pop this girl for anything anytime soon.
