A woman ordered a false pregnancy tummy on Amazon during a "sinister" stalking campaign against her ex-boyfriend, according to a court.
Jessica Nordquist, 25, broke up with former lover Mark Weekes, whom he met when they both worked at the London advertising company Unruly.
But after the split last November, Nordquist conducted an increasingly threatening harassment campaign against her ex, she learned Snaresbook Crown Court.
She posted messages online saying that she had raped her and asked Amazon's fake silicone pregnancy belly, according to the jurors.
Jessica Nordquist ordered a fake pregnancy belly on Amazon and claimed she was pregnant during a harassment campaign against her ex, a court heard
Nordquist, who is originally from Eagle River in Alaska and went to Northern State University in South Dakota, moved to Unruly's office in London from New York.
Now she is being judged for harassment, sending malicious communications and perverting the course of justice at Old Bailey in London. She denies the charges.
Prosecutor Claire Robinson said the couple started dating in August of last year, but "I wanted different things" and separated three months later.
Nordquist alleged that it published a series of messages online, one of which accused his ex of rape, prosecutors said
Ms. Robinson told the jury that, after separating, Nordquist seemed to want to get his attention.
& # 39; She left handwritten notes on her bicycle and desk. He thought that she was following him rather by the office and also that she was still sending him text messages.
Then she said she was eight weeks pregnant with her baby, according to the jurors.
They went to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel and on December 13th Nordquist had an abortion.
Mr. Weekes described that his ex-girlfriend was upset and "made a scene" at the hospital.
When they returned to Unruly after the Christmas holidays, Nordquist asked them if they could rekindle their romance, the court heard.
But he rejected Nordquist and she sent him a message on Instagram that said: "I tell people that at work I had an abortion and if they ask who I will tell you about".
Nordquist then posted an Instagram message saying she aborted after she "struck up a relationship," said Ms. Robinson.
Apparently, Nordquist posted a message, purportedly from her friend, in which she claimed that she had taken an overdose on January 5.
After Mr. Weekes called the police, Nordquist tried to make it look like they were both being targeted by the same harasser, the court heard.
The couple met at the London advertising agency Unruly, which is now located in the Whitechapel building.
An email, which seemed to come from someone else, said: "You will meet at 3 p.m. in Shoreditch Grind (cafeteria).
& # 39; If neither of you shows, we will reveal your past secrets in the office. We will go for you & # 39;
When Mr. Weekes did not show up, he received a message saying: "I gave them both the opportunity to appear, Tic tac, the rabbit has shit.
Nordquist told the police that she and Mr. Weekes were victims of another stalker
Mrs. Robinson said: "The Crown suggests that all this came from Jessica Nordquist."
She said the stalking campaign became "more and more sinister."
Nordquist also sent messages tagged to rebellious clients of Mr. Weekes accusing him of rape, referring to his page @weekmar.
One, sent from an account called Karen Schuler, said: & # 39; @weekmar raped her. Unruler raped and assaulted an employee. I still went to work with him and tried to hide it.
Nordquist attended the Bethnal Green police station on January 26 and his phone and his iPad were seized.
The police found searches about sending fake emails and stalking on their devices.
Ms. Robinson said: "She told the police that she and Mark Weekes were being harassed, and she said all of her searches were related to trying to find out about the stalking.
When she was arrested again four days later, the police found searches for "fake babies" and ordered a silicone baby hit on Amazon.
She also investigated whether the police can track where emails are sent from, the court heard.
Nordquist, of Tower Hamlets, east of London, denies two stalking charges, two counts of sending malicious communications and one charge of perverting the course of justice. The trial continues.
