There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Good news for Ashanti!!
As we told you yesterday, the singer faced her stalker of over a decade in court this week — and now, the verdict is in!
Devar Hurd — who represented himself in court — was found guilty by an NYC jury and will face more time in jail. Whew!
In case you didn't know, Hurd has been stalking the singer's family for years and confessed to sending her hundreds of lewd tweets and text messages. He defended himself by saying Ashanti simply could've "blocked" him on social media.
Hurd was ultimately found guilty of felony second degree stalking and will face anywhere between one and a half to four years behind bars.
The Foolish singer took to Twitter to announce her relief of the sentencing:
Good for her!

Ashanti's stalker nightmare continues.
To catch you up, Devar Hurd has been stalking the singer and her family since 2003, went to prison for a couple years in 2009 for sending Ashanti's mom pictures of himself masturbating, and has since continued the gross behavior.
This week, nearly 13 years since this all began, Hurd began his third trial for a felony stalking case on Tuesday for sending the R&B singer hundreds of sexually explicit tweets and violating a restraining order.
As he has in the past, Hurd is once again representing himself in court — which means he will be cross-examining Ashanti himself.
This doesn't sound right!!
During his opening statement, Hurd said:
"You're not going to see a lick of evidence where she said stop communicating with me, I don't want to hear from you, you're scaring me."
To which prosecutor Carolina Holderness argued:
Such a diplomatic answer from the songstress!
They did date for quite a while — on and off for over 10 years!
The What's Luv singer opened up to Meredith Vieira about her failed relationship and revealed how insecurities drove them apart! She even felt betrayed!
But that wasn't the only juicy thing Ashanti talked about.
This is a perfect example of why wearing the same color as someone else isn't a big deal at all!
We wanted Ciara to slay after last night's white hot look, but unfortunately it just looked like she was wrapped up in all of the tulle in the world. Her legs looks HAWT in Alexandre Vauthier though!
Anna struck a more professional look in her all-black Band of Outsiders suit ensem, but she spiced things up by not wearing a shirt. Good call!
And Ashanti went for a super sexy look in her Michael Costello gown, allowing her cleavage to take center stage thanks to her sleek up ‘do!
All of these ladies' looks were striking in one way or another. Who did you like best, Perezcious readers?

Srsly, her girls are just chillin' alongside the singer on the red carpet! LOLz!
The weather is a little hot in El Lay, but the Rock Wit U songstress walked the red carpet in a floor length, long-sleeve, cream-colored Michael Costello gown with a TON of cut outs.
Okay, three in the front doesn't necessarily count as a ton, but it's still a good amount for cut outs for one dress!
Girlie paired her dress with black peep-toed heels and left her hair down for the occasion.
We're not really sure how we feel about the dress. On one hand, it definitely shows off all her assets and curves, but there's just something about it!

Phew! That was close!
Ashanti was tanning her toned bod by the pool over the weekend, and luckily for us she made it a public affair!
The 33-year-old posted several selfies, including one of legs propped up, with her hand in the air! We’re not sure if she’s posing or
And she’s baaaaack!!
And does she ever?? We were so not prepared for the fierceness she unleashed on stage!
Werk it, werk it!
Ch-ch-check out Ashanti breaking it down for ya in the clip (above)!!
