A woman who stalked Rio Ferdinand has been jailed and ordered to stay away from the Manchester United footballer for the next ten years. Susanne Ibru, who was branded a predatory and manipulative fantasist, remained defiant to the last as she was given a ten-week prison sentence. The 38-year-old, who had jumped bail then spat at a woman police officer when she was arrested, made a V-sign at the judge as she was led from the dock, telling him: I put two fingers up at you. Former England captain Ferdinand had earlier told how she left him fearing for his familys safety by repeatedly making a 400-mile round trip from London to Cheshire just to call at his £5million luxury home. Yesterday Crewe Magistrates' Court was told a pre-sentence report had described Ibru as living in a fantasy world, unable to interpret social situations and boundaries. It added: She has a predatory and manipulative lifestyle. During the trial for harassment last month, Ibru represented herself and cross-examined her victim but fled the court during the lunch break. The defendant was living in Peckham, south London, when she made three 400-mile round trips to Ferdinand's home in Alderley Edge on February 21 last year, then again on June 16 and 18, her trial heard.
