Ashanti comes face-to-face with 'delusional' stalker who thought he was in a relationship with the star during his re-trial for sending sexually explicit messages

A man who had been making Ashanti and her family's life a living hell for almost a decade was convicted of stalking her in a New York City courtroom on Friday, March 18.

37-year old Devar Hurd believes that he and the singer are in a relationship.

"She thinks I'm two-timing her and not being faithful," he told the court on Tuesday, according to the New York Daily News.

Hurd, who defended himself, was convicted in 2009 of stalking and harassing the former Murder Inc recording artist. Ashanti was given an order of protection, which Hurd violated by showing up at events attended by her younger sister and tweeting the singer hundreds of lewd messages.

He was sent back to jail in 2013, where he has remained.

Hurd grilled Ashanti during cross-examination when she took the stand this week. He read back some of the tweets he had sent to her, including one that read "eating pu$$y from the back tastes better from a flight to Russia," according to TMZ.


He then asked if she had seen the message. "I saw the disgusting tweet and was insulted," she responded.


"Why didn't you tell me to stop or block me?" he asked. "I know how you are when it comes to our sex life ... us f*cking is very emotional on both ends."

Ashanti then crossed her arms, closed her eyes and sat silently.

During closing arguments Hurd told the jury that Ashanti should have blocked him. He added that he didn't consider sexually explicit texts and tweets a crime or sexual harassment.

The jury wasn't buying it. They convicted him of felony 2nd degree stalking. He could get anywhere from 1 1/2 to 4 years in prison when he is sentenced later this month.

Hurd refused to plead guilty even though he had been offered time served in exchange.

Ashanti was understandably happy to see Hurd convicted. She thanked God and her supporters via social media.

Ashanti comes face-to-face with 'delusional' stalker who thought he was in a relationship

  • Devar Hurd believed he was in a relationship the singer when he was accused of breaching his restraining order
  • He was banned from contacting her or her family in 2009 when he was jailed for stalking and harassment
  • But on his release he sent hundreds of lewd messages to Ashanti, according to court prosecutors
  • Also alleged to have attended an event where he knew her sister would be and posed for a picture with her
  • But in a bizarre set of claims Hurd said he believed he was in a relationship with the star who was angry because she thought he was cheating 

Ashanti has been forced to come face-to-face with her stalker at his retrial for 'sending graphic sexual messages to the star and following her younger sister.'

'Delusional' Devar Hurd told the court he believed he was in a relationship with the Foolish singer when he contacted her - breaching his restraining order. 

The 37-year-old had been banned from getting in touch with the hip hop star or her family in 2009, when he was jailed for two years for stalking and aggravated harassment.

But after his release, the fan began sending Ashanti hundreds of lewd tweets from fake Twitter accounts, according to prosecutors who said he also turned up at events organized by her younger sister, Kenashia Douglas.

Yesterday, Manhattan Supreme Court heard Hurd that he thought he was in a relationship with Ashanti - who thought he was 'going behind her back'.

The defendant, who was diagnosed as having a delusional disorder, said: 'She thought I was two-timing her, that I wasn't being loyal and trustworthy as I claimed to be to her,' Hurd said in his rambling opening statement, reported New 

He also addressed the jury, telling them they were being 'manipulated' by prosecutors.

This is the second time in less than a year that Ashanti has had to face the man who has left her living in fear.

Hurd had originally faced trial for the current charges last December where the John Tucker Must Die actress told him she had repulsed and frightened to learn he'd been tweeting her X-rated messages.

But a juror's illness during deliberations prompted a mistrial meaning the case had to be rescheduled for later in the year.

The Grammy winning R&B singer said at the time she had been appalled by the prospect of facing her stalker again but was determined to see the case through after a mistrial.

'I'm shocked and horrified at the thought of going through this ordeal again, but I will do whatever it takes to make sure my family is safe and that justice is served,' she said at the time. 

Now both Ashanti and Hurd are back in the courtroom where the fan will face charges of breaking his restraining orders.

Assistant District Attorney Kathryn Werner said yesterday that Hurd had deliberately ignored the restraining order not to contact Ashanti, her sister or parents until 2020, by messaging the star.

He had also attended an event where hew knew her younger sister would be as he knew she would not recognize him. The convicted stalker even took a picture with Kenashia.

His relentless campaign had left the family terrified, Werner said. 

'They still live in fear of the defendant,' he told New York Daily News. 'Ashanti still hires extra security for her protection when she is in New York to ensure the defendant is kept away from her.' 

'I didn't know what he was capable of,' she added at the trial last year. 'I know sometimes when a person gets rejected, that emotion turns into, you know, dangerous feelings and dangerous actions, and I didn't want it to go to a new level, so I was really, really scared.'

The original case last December had heard that Hurd messaged Ashanti more than 100 times within one year before from different Twitter handles until a fan alerted the star to his real identity.  

She recounted being at her mother's July 2013 birthday dinner as she read raunchy, personal tweets from an account she had recently realized was Hurd's.

'To be at a family event with my mom and to have a person coming at you so derogatory, it was disgusting,' a tearful Ashanti had said in December.

While Hurd argued his tweets did no harm and she could have blocked him if she found them upsetting, claiming they were about 'consensual sex, lovemaking and emotional heartbreak.'

The concerned singer said she had not done so on advice from law enforcement.

Hurd, who represented himself at the current trial, could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

Ashanti, 34, got her first record deal at age 14 and went on to release hits including 'Foolish' and 'Only U.' 

She also has acted in such films as 'Coach Carter' and 'John Tucker Must Die,' as well as in a 2009 off-Broadway revival of 'The Wiz.'

Ashanti Talks Her Love For Reggae “I Was Suppose To Be Born Jamaican” {VIDEO}

Foxy Brown is dissing Ashanti on Instagram saying that the R&B singer is dating her ex-boyfriend Spragga Benz.

The New York rapper and the dancehall deejay dated in the early 2000s but have since split. The question now is why is Foxy Brown bashing Ashanti.

The “Foolish” singer was in Jamaica last week hosting a party at Fiction nightclub and also ringing the new year at a party at Shaggy’s house. She was also spotted hanging with Spragga Benz and other artists like Agent Sasco and Ding Dong.

Ashanti post a photo of herself on Spragga on her Instagram page last week.

“So….. Yall already know…. #IloveMeSomeSpragga?????????????????? Jamaica bout to be lit????????????????” she captioned the photo.

Foxy Brown commented on the photo bashing the R&B singer saying she slept with all of her exes.

“Thirsty azz Ashanti still d***ridin!” Foxy Brown commented on the photo. “I Just gave it to god.”

Ashanti has not responded to her comments.

Ashanti Flaunts Sexy Bikini Body In Malibu [PICS]

Ashanti was in Jamaica last weekend hosting a party at Fiction nightclub and ringing in the new year with Shaggy at his house in Kingston.

The R&B diva seems like she had a great time on the island so we might see some more of her in Jamaica soon.

Speaking with OnStage, Ashanti says she absolutely love reggae music and Jamaican culture.

“I absolutely love Jamaica, I love Jamaican culture I love reggae music, I always say I don’t know what happened to me I was suppose to be born Jamaican and it got messed up, my situation didn’t planned out that way,” she said.

“It’s funny because when people ask me what type of music do you listen to to put you in a good mood when things aren’t going your way, reggae music, so it feels really awesome being hear and celebrating the new year,” Ashanti says.

Ashanti also opened up about her career and learning from some very mistakes that she made during her career.

“I am finding out so much about myself because so many things have happened in my career where I was able to kind of able to take control and learn from a lot of mistakes that were made, I made some very expensive mistakes. So I think the most important thing is learning and for me to put out my first album on a major record label and then from there owning my own record label 12 years later is an amazing accomplishment.”

The R&B singer says now she is more focused on longevity rather than being hot for the moment.

“I think for now when I look at things its more about staying power and longevity. It’s really hard to walk away from something that maybe hot for the minute and you may have a number one record and then no one will hear from you again,” she said.

Ashanti also opened up about collaborating with Beenie Man on her recent album Brave Heart.

Following the release of her fifth solo album entitled Braveheart earlier this month,Ashanti took a much needed break and hit the beach in Malibu, California to enjoy some fun in the sun.

The sexy 33-year old singer shared several photos on her Instagram account. She definitely looked great while wearing a 2-piece bikini.

Foxy Brown need to grow up! Black women are so damn catty towards one another. Why can't black women uplift one another? Why does it always have to be hate and animosity? Foxy didn't even have to comment on the photo at all. Guess she doesn't know what being "the bigger person" is. SMDH....
