No one likes the feeling of rejection, but an Arizona woman’s reaction took things to the extreme – so much so that she ended up behind bars. Jacqueline Ades, 33 and from Phoenix, became so crazed after she was rejected by a wealthy businessman following their first date that she bombarded him with 159,000 texts over a period of 10 months and even broke into his house to take a naked bath, the Arizona Republic reports.
- The pair met on a millionaire’s dating app called Luxy. They shared one date, but the victim, said to be the CEO of a Scottsdale-based company that sells skincare products, let Ades know that he wasn’t feeling it pretty much right away. However, despite the fact that he made it clear he wasn’t interested, Ades is said to have started blowing up his phone with calls and texts pretty much immediately.
- It wasn’t long before the police got involved. When the man found Ades parked outside his house in July 2017, he called police, who came to escort her off his property. However, that’s when things went from bad to worse, because soon after, Ades began regularly threatening the man. She even came back to his house in December of that year, but police were unable to locate her when they arrived.
- She even broke into his house when he wasn’t there. The man called police again in April 2018 to report that surveillance footage of his house showed that Ades was inside while he was out of town. While there, she stripped down and took a bath, according to court documents. Paradise Valley soon responded to the property where they found her in the bath and helped her locate her clothes before arresting her. When an officer asked Ades why she was there, she responded, “I guess that I made up a whole scenario in my head where I live here, so I came here and pretended that’s what was happening.” They noted that her other responses didn’t make sense and that they found a large butcher’s knife on the front seat of her car when they went into vehicle to retrieve her purse.
- Ades constantly texted the man, with many of the messages being extremely threatening. In one message, she texted the man: “I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones.” Another text added: “I’d wear ur fascia n the top of ur skull n ur hands n feet.” She seemed to think the whole thing was hilarious.
- After being released on bail, she repeatedly failed to turn up to court. After missing several hearings, police arrested Ades again, holding her in Maricopa County jail without bail until she faces trial for charges of criminal trespassing and stalking. Bodycam footage of the officers transporting her to the jail show Ades talking nonsense about Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity and its relation to a “story of love.” She also repeated several random conspiracy theories, none of which made sense. Asked where she learned the things she was saying, Ades only replied, “He said to me, ‘Go away,’ for the last 16 months. And I couldn’t, because the more I loved him, the more I learned (about) the secrets of the universe.”
