Jilted girlfriend, 25, who ordered a fake pregnancy bump and claimed her ex had raped her

A jilted woman who falsely claimed her raped her and wore a baby bump to dupe him into thinking she was pregnant is facing years behind bars.

Jessica Nordquist, 25, subjected her ex-boyfriend Mark Weeks to a chilling campaign or harassment during which she faked her own kidnapping and emailed his clients and colleagues claiming he had raped her.

The pair began a relationship while working for video advertising company Unruly after Nordquist, a solutions engineer, moved from New York to the London office in June last year.

But their romance soured and the pair separated in November.

Mr Weeks said he soon received emails from fake email accounts - including one in the name of a friend - saying Nordquist had been kidnapped and raped.

He received photos of Nordquist tied up in her underwear attached to an email that read: 'Jessica Nordquist is the one who has been protecting your children from us. We raped and stole her tonight.'


The pair began a relationship while working for video advertising company Unruly based in Whitechapel, east London.

Nordquist, who is originally from Eagle River in Alaska and went to Northern State University in South Dakota, said she ordered a fake baby bump for a pregnancy party, adding: 'I wanted the guys to wear it.'

Giving evidence, Mr Weeks said he feared his career was over after Nordquist sent his colleagues emails claiming he had raped her.

One message said: 'You should know Mark and Unruly have covered up the most atrocious crime ever.'

Mr Weeks added: 'These allegations were damaging to my personal welfare I am highly anxious, feeling depressed.

I didn't really know what was coming next. It felt my whole life was going on hold.'

Mr Weeks said he also received messages about a burglary at his home but he never replied and while he was working from home a reindeer, bought for him by workmates as a Christmas gift, went missing from his desk.

He said Nordquist alluded to chess in her emails and in one said: 'If you can, protect the queen, she is the most valuable piece on the board she protects your king.'

Another read: 'The queen will have some words tomorrow. Did you not know she is worth 26 million dollars.'

Mr Weeks' brother was also sent a message which read: 'Your brother is in trouble. You should be more careful.'

His boss urged him to take two weeks off work on compassionate leave during the stalking campaign.

He decided to remove himself from social media and deleted his Instagram account after forwarding the messages to the police.

Nordquist began sending threatening messages to herself and Mr Weeks made to look as though they were from a third party

Prosecutor Claire Robinson said Nordquist was desperate to get Mr Weeks' attention after they broke up, and left handwritten notes on his bike and desk.

Nordquist asked to meet for coffee but when Mr Weeks said no he was 'met with some angry text messages.'

She then claimed she was eight weeks pregnant with his baby and went to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel on 13 December so she could have an abortion.

The court heard she lied to Mr Weeks about having a termination and claimed she then miscarried.

When they returned to Unruly after the Christmas break, Nordquist asked if they could rekindle their romance, the court heard.

But when he rejected Nordquist she sent him a message on Instagram saying: 'I'm telling people at work I had an abortion and if they ask with who, I'll say you.'

Nordquist posted a message, purporting to be from her friend, claiming she had taken an overdose on 5 January, the court heard. Mr Weeks became 'upset and concerned' and rang the police.


Six says later Nordquist began sending messages to herself and Mr Weekes made to look as though they were from a third party.

Nordquist repeatedly told Mr Weeks they were 'being watched,' the court heard.

One email on 13 January read: 'You are going to meet at 3pm at Shoreditch Grind (cafe). If neither of you show, we're going to release your past secrets around the office. We will come for you.'

When Mr Weeks didn't show he recieved a message saying: 'I gave you both a chance to show up. Tick tock, the rabbit's got f***ed.'

Most messages were signed off with 'tick-tock Mark Weeks,' jurors were told.

Nordquist also sent tagged posts to Mr Weeks' Unruly clients accusing him of rape.

One read: ' raped her.Unruler raped and assaulted an employee. Still went to work with him and trying to cover it up.'

Ms Robinson told jurors Nordquist harassed 'not only Mark Weeks but employees of Unruly too.'

When Nordquist attended Bethnal Green police station on 26 January her phone and iPad were seized and officers found searches about sending fake emails and stalking on her devices.

Ms Robinson said: 'She told police she and Mark Weekes were being stalked. She claimed her searches were all related to trying to find out about stalking.'

When she was arrested again four days later, police found searches for 'fake babies' and a silicon baby bump had been ordered on Amazon.

She had also researched whether police can track where emails are sent from.

Nordquist ran a bizarre defence case in which she said she was kidnapped by a real-life 'James Bond' who she met at a Soho bar.

She claimed the MI5 agent, Max Brown, later handed her a manila envelope containing photos of her having sex with Mr Weeks.

She told the court that the photos were taken via a secret camera installed in her lightbulb.

She said she was raped on April 19 after three men, including Brown came to her apartment. Nordquist claimed she was then kidnapped and taken to Scotland on a train.

She was caught on CCTV alone at Euston Station that same night wearing a wig.

She said: 'They told me to put this really long wig on.'

Scottish police located her at the hostel in Aviemore on April 20 and she was taken into police custody, the court heard.

Nordquist, who lives in Tower Hamlets, east London, denied two counts stalking, two counts of sending malicious communications and one count of perverting course of justice. She was found guilty on all counts by the jury.

Judge Paul Southern adjourned sentencing to a date to be fixed and remanded Nordquist in custody.

He said: 'I can not see how an immediate custodial sentence can be avoided. The question is the length of it. I am concerned about having the information I need about Jessica Nordquist.

'During the period these offences were committed Ms Nordquist was admitted to a psychiatric facility. We know that the police were concerned enough when they found her at Aviemore to take her to have a mental heath assessment.'
