A WEALTHY property developer terrorised his influencer ex with texts and posed as a dog walker to steal her cockapoo.
Bashar Ayoub, 45, bombarded Hannah Rasekh with hundreds of messages after their relationship ended.
The couple met in Dubai in 2017 but Ms Rasekh claims Ayoub was “emotionally and psychologically abusive towards her” and they split at the start of the year.
On two days in January alone, he sent 35 emails calling her a “bitch” and warned: “Your brother’s next.
Ayoub also turned up at her home in South Kensington, West London, in July while Ms Rasekh — who describes herself on social media as a “stylist and digital influencer” — was away.
He told her parents, who were housesitting, that he was a friend and was there to walk her dog, Ted.
However, he never brought the pup back.
A few weeks later, he returned to the property and sent Ms Rasekh a photo of her car, accusing her of lying about being on holiday.
Her dad called the police who warned him to stay away.
But within hours Ayoub threatened his victim by phoning her 64 times and sending abusive messages.
In one text, he told Ms Rasekh: “Die you thief you thieving whe I pray you die I pray every day you die you whe.”
In another he wrote: “I’ll rip you apart, all of you, your whole family you c***s.”
Ayoub, who lives in a £2million apartment in Belgravia, admitted one count of stalking with fear of harm and violence at Westminster magistrates’ court.
He was granted bail on the condition he does not contact Ms Rasekh.
He must wear a GPS tag to ensure he does not go near her home or the surrounding area.
Ayoub will be sentenced at the same court on December 8.
