Judge Bars Fan From Contacting Singer - Associated Press Article

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A New York City woman who believes Whitney Houston is her "supernatural reincarnated mother" and has sent her gifts including underwear, a makeup kit and a four-tiered cake has been barred by a judge from contacting the singer.

Superior Court Judge Kenneth C. MacKenzie issued a temporary restraining order Thursday against Desiree D. Weeks, 36, in response to a lawsuit filed by Houston, who lives in Mendham Township.

Weeks began sending rambling letters to Houston's management company, Nippy Inc. of Fort Lee, in August, calling Houston "Mommy" and her "supernatural reincarnated mother."

"Every chance I get I make it known I belong to Queen Whitney Houston ," Weeks wrote in one letter.

Weeks called Houston's 7-year-old daughter, Bobbi Brown, her "little sister" and Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, "Nana," Houston attorney Thomas Weisenbeck said.

Weeks sent Houston a bra and underwear, a makeup kit, Valentine's Day candy and the cake, with plates and utensils, Weisenbeck said.

The letters were postmarked with various return addresses in the Bronx. A letter dated Aug. 6 came from the Bronx Psychiatric Center.

MacKenzie's order, which will be reviewed again on March 22, bans Weeks from contacting Houston, her husband, singer Bobby Brown; their daughter, Houston's mother or employees at Nippy. Weeks was not present at the hearing.

MacKenzie has issued two restraining orders in the past at Houston's request, one involving a Jersey City man who believed he had two children with Houston and another against a New York man who believed he was Houston's brother.

Houston has sold millions of records and is one of the world's most successful recording artists. She has also starred in such films as "The Bodyguard" and "Waiting to Exhale".
