Emanuelito Torres-Delgado, 53, stands accused of sending Martinez inappropriate messages on social media and then turning up at her office building in Manhattan, where the 44 year old works for hip-hop station Power 105.1, on 5 September (15), two days after sharing a screenshot of his online purchase for a plane ticket from his home in Sacramento, California to the Big Apple.

A police complaint was filed and he was taken into custody on Friday (11Sep15).

He is being held at Manhattan Detention Complex on $5,000 (£3,125) bail, according to the New York Daily News.

Martinez, who has previously featured on songs with Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott and Lil' Kim, and Wyclef Jean, has yet to comment on the news.
