A tormented fancier who ordered a fake pregnancy on Amazon after telling her ex she expected, is today kept for four and a half years for stalking.
Jessica Nordquist, 26, claimed she had been raped by Mark Weeks and had falsified her own abduction during an extreme hate campaign that she had after they had split up.
The couple started a relationship after Nordquist moved out of New York and worked with Mr Weeks at a video advertising company called Unruly in Whitechapel, East London.
But their romance soured and the couple divorced in November last year – which led to an increasingly bizarre answer from Nordquist.
