*The man accused of sending X-rated tweets to Ashanti went HAM in a Manhattan courtroom Tuesday while grilling her mother on the witness stand — basically blaming her for failing to protecting her daughters from him.
“How ya doing, Tina, everything OK? I’m not gonna sit here and pretend like I’m not upset with your little acting charade,” suspected stalker Devar Hurd, who is acting as his own lawyer, said to Ashanti’s mom, Tina Douglas.
Prosecutors objected, but according to the New York Post’s Page Six, Hurd’s courtroom antics continued with a barrage of questions about whether Douglas had met him before.
“Is this your first time meeting me?” he asked.
When Douglas replied yes, he told her, “You know you’re under oath.”
“You didn’t meet me in 2003? In Chicago, at the United Center, at a charity event?” he continued, to which Douglas responded, “No.”
Hurd’s ramblings prompted Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Daniel Conviser to tell him to knock it off — or he would order advising lawyer Michael Fineman to take over.
“It makes you look terrible in front of the jury when you’re arguing,” Conviser said, referring to Hurd’s tendency to make statements instead of pose questions to Douglas.
“I don’t want to admonish you in front of them. As emotional as you got with this witness, I can only imagine how emotional you’ll get with the next witnesses.”
Ashanti and her sister Kenashia — who unwittingly snapped a photo with Hurd in 2013, even though the family had orders of protection against him — are expected to testify.
“Please understand, I’m not trying to be disruptive, this is my first time doing this,” Hurd told the judge. “I have to get better at putting it together in a question form.”
Earlier, Hurd slammed Douglas after she testified that Kenashia had no clue who Hurd was when the photo was taken.
“This is your daughter, you love her, you want to protect her. Why didn’t you make her more strongly aware of who I was?” he asked.
The former sound technician, 36, was convicted in 2010 of sending X-rated crotch pics to Ashanti through Douglas.
Douglas said she was fearful of Hurd after he allegedly started stalking the Douglases again and sending lewd tweets to Ashanti in 2013.
“I wanted to vomit,” Douglas said of the graphic Twitter messages. “It was sickening. I felt he was stalking, that he was dangerous. He had already been convicted and taken to jail. He did not learn.”
