Ivanka Trump’s schizophrenic stalker, who sent her creepy emails and bizarre videos, is arrested in a hotel room one block from Trump TowerA mentally ill man who used to terrorize Ivanka Trump with a barrage of creepy emails, tweets and online videos, and threatened to commit suicide in her Manhattan jewelry store, has been arrested in a hotel room one block from Trump Tower.In 2012, Justin Massler pleaded guilty to aggravated harassment and criminal contempt charges.After serving six months in prison he was given five years of probation, during which time he was supposed to continue receiving psychiatric treatment and medication.
But Massler, now 34, is in Bellevue Hospital after the Secret Service nabbed him after he booked a hotel room just one block from Trump Tower.Massler, from Reno, Nevada, has long been fixated with Ms Trump, the daughter of tycoon and President-elect Donald Trump and his ex-wife Ivana, saying in his dream life he wanted to marry her.He had been receiving treatment in a Nevada mental health facility but fled in November. He was found in late November in Midtown Manhattan. In 2012, he was jailed after his remarks became ominous after he threatened to commit suicide in the model and businesswoman’s store.Massler sent Ivanka distressing emails and messages on Twitter and even posted a picture of himself covered in blood.
During his two-year obsession, Massler also said he wanted to ‘talk some sense into’ her husband, Jared Kushner and ‘commandeer’ the New York Observer which Mr Kushner publishes.Even after his arrest and a court order to stay away from Ivanka Trump, star of Celebrity Apprentice, and her family, Massler continued to try to contact them.Massler, who had his name legally changed to Cloud Starchaser and told authorities his address was ‘a volcano in Hawaii’, is schizophrenic and has a history of psychiatric hospitalizations, said his lawyer George Vomvolakis. Massler also had to sign an order of protection barring him from any contact Ivanka Trump and her husband, along with father Donald and her siblings.He last got in trouble with the law in November 2014, when he emailed Trump’s husband Jared Kushner in violation of a restraining order.
