Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving Harassed by Woman on Twitter

Irving filed complaint with West Orange police

West Orange native and the NBA's No. 1 draft pick, Kyrie Irving, told police a woman he met on Twitter is once again harassing him, officials with the police department said.

Irving, 19, filed a harassment complaint against Jessica Jackson, a 24-year-old Bronx resident who he met on Twitter under the username @MissHawaii, police said. 

The basketball star told police that Jackson, a model, contacted him via Twitter earlier today, violating the no contact order issued by West Orange Municipal Judge Margaret Padovano on Tuesday.  

According to the police report, Irving said he received "terroristic threats" from Jackson between March 22 and May 17. He filed a harassment complaint May 17. 

Jackson also filed a harassment complaint against Irving on June 28, according to the county clerk's office. 

It is not known what relationship the two had. 

The pair contacted each other via Twitter, and allegedly met briefly at the Ritz Carlton in Charlotte, N.C., before parting ways, Irving told police officials. 

Since then, police said that Jackson posted multiple YouTube videos where she threatened to stab Irving.

Police said a similar report was filed by Irving in Coral Gables, Fla.  

Iriving was drafted by the Cleveland Caveliers this month. He played ball at Duke University for a year after attending Montclair Kimberley Academy and St. Patrick's of Elizabeth. Irving grew up in West Orange where his father still resides. 

Jackson was not available for comment. Police continue to investigate this incident.
