Letters to Houston Considered Threat

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A judge has issued another restraining order against a New York City woman who believes Whitney Houston is her mother.

Superior Court Judge Kenneth MacKenzie issued the order Tuesday against Desiree Weeks, whose most recent letters to Houston included a threat against the singer's 7-year-old daughter.

The judge also reinstated a lawsuit Houston had filed against Weeks last year. Houston, who lives in Mendham Township, had dropped the suit and another temporary restraining order after Weeks was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital in New York.

But Houston returned to court earlier this month after Weeks briefly escaped from a Bronx psychiatric hospital on Jan. 26.

Weeks began sending rambling letters to Houston's management company, Nippy Inc. of Fort Lee, in August 1999, calling Houston ``Mommy'' and the ``supernatural reincarnation'' of her mother, sending her gifts including underwear, a makeup kit, candy and cake, Houston has said.

MacKenzie also scheduled a March 27 hearing to consider appointing a lawyer to represent Weeks and determine who would pay her legal bill.
