and stalking have officially met, and it isn't pretty. An Indiana man was thrown behind bars by New York authorities after allegedly harassing singer Ashanti and her family. The NY Post reports that 31-year-old Devar Hurd has sent over 30 sexts to her, her mother and other family members (including her dad!).

The singer's mom Tina Douglas, who lives on Long Island, was the most contacted amongst the family — receiving texts like, "Hey Tina baby, how u doing sexy," and, "Tell Shani I’m coming straight home from work to put in sum overtime. U know how I do, LOL." He also sent photos, including one of Ashanti's car in a parking lot, and one of his exposed genitals — which came along with details about him masturbating to Ashanti videos.

Even the G-rated texts were creepy — the NY Times reports that one stated: “I had a nice dream about us shani we was at your place and had a event and u was singing. I was feeling so good because we was finally past this and living together.” Shivers.

Hurd will be headed to trial next week on misdemeanor charges of stalking and aggravated harassment, and until then he remains at Rikers. If he pleads guilty he'll likely be behind bars for one year.
