MANHATTAN CRIMINAL COURT — A man charged with stalking Ivanka Trump — calling her "a diseased elitist" and her husband Jared Kushner an "ignorant Jew" — was ordered to stay away from her family and released on $10,000 bail Thursday.
Justin Massler, 27, who runs the "Ivanka Trump Fan Blog" and told Reno, Nev., police his real name was Cloud Starchaser when he was arrested on March 16, stalked Trump and Kushner through tweets and e-mails, prosecutors said.
Massler, who recently spent time in an inpatient psychiatric facility, sent e-mails to the New York Observer calling himself "the king of the Jews" and demanding Kushner's personal information, according to court documents.
He said Kushner was "trying to avoid me even though I'm his king," according to the criminal complaint.
"Is it true that he lives at Astor Place above the Starbucks?" Massler wrote, according to court documents. "If so I can just find him at his house and talk some sense into him."
Massler said he'd commit suicide if he did not hear from Kushner and have an autographed photo of Trump sent to him, according to prosecutors.
"I will specifically kill myself at Ivanka Trump Jewelry which is right by where I live, ruining her whole luxury jewelry line with the presence of a dead guy," he said, according to court documents.
"My other option is to stalk in maniacal manner for this picture by becoming nothing other than a deranged celebrity stalker," he said in the documents.
"That's what happens when you ignore this and then ridicule mentally ill people."
Prosecutors said Massler tried to buy the heiress $800 earrings from her own jewelry store as a gift then sent angry e-mails to store employees when the they were not given to her.
"How f**king hard is it to simply go, hey Ivanka some guy ordered you these as a present and give them to her?" Massler apparently wrote in an e-mail.
He told employees "pay attention you dips**ts" and ordered them to give the package to Trump, according to documents.
"Say 'here you go it's from some guy named Justin Massler who wrote you a kind of crazy seeming creepy stalker letter along with it," he said, according to the documents.
Massler was allowed to go home to Reno but must return to New York for court appearances and undergo weekly psychiatric treatment.
His lawyer said Massler had a perfect SAT score and was accepted to Harvard before his life spiraled.
Attorney George Vomvolakis said Massler did not pose a psychical threat to the Trump family and said the "all Internet contact" was harmless.
"They're looking for contact from fans," Vomvolakis said of celebrity figures. "He had no contact with any of them."
He was arrested on March 16 in Nevada, where he allegedly told police, "I stopped stalking her when police came to my house and told my mom last week."
He is scheduled to reappear in court on May 18 but is headed home to Reno in the meantime.
