A self-dubbed record label CEO who was on a mission to impress Ashanti was convicted Tuesday of harassing the singer's mother with bizarre text messages and filthy photos of himself.

Devar Hurd appeared stunned as a Manhattan jury delivered its verdict after two days of deliberations, finding him guilty of stalking and aggravated harassment for three years with messages the singer's mother and manager, Tina Douglas, called scary and disgusting. Hurd insisted the photos of his genitals were welcome and strictly "for the ladies."
