Wow, if you thought that the guy who is accused of stalking Big & Rich's John Rich was creepy before, this definitely isn't going to change your opinion of him.

Mark "Chris" Sevier, a 36-year-old former Nashville attorney who was arrested back in June for allegedly stalking John Rich, was arrested this morning in Nashville for allegedly stalking a 17-year-old girl.

Eesh willakers. 

According to The Tennessean, Sevier spotted the girl at a local coffee shop and ended up following her to where she worked.

As if that wasn't creepy enough, after following her to her to her place of employment, Sevier allegedly spooked the girl by telling her about a private conversation she had had at the coffee shop with a friend months earlier, the arrest warrant stated.

John Rich gets a new T.V. show, slams Rolling Stone magazine over Boston Bomber cover

Time boston bomber
Rolling Stone magazine has ruffled quite a few feathers with the cover of their latest issue which features Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

John Rich tweeted his disgust with the magazine this morning, saying: "You always think as an artist "If I ever get on the Rolling Stone I'll know I've made it!" That was until they started promoting terrorists." 

Just so you know, I'm now going to have Dr. Hook's Cover of The Rolling Stone stuck in my head all day now. Also, do you think Rolling Stone would have put the bomber on their cover if he looked like a troll rather than a little Jihadist heartthrob? Just sayin'.

In other John Rich news, T.V. Guide is reporting that he's set to take part in another reality show on TVGN

The Untitled John Rich Project will film at Rich's Nashville home and feature live performances, celebrity interviews, surprise guests and lots of audience interaction in a loose party atmosphere. The series is produced by 25/7 Productions with David Broome (The Biggest Loser), Yong Yamand Marc Oswald as executive producers.

This definitely isn't John's first foray into reality T.V. He's also taken part in "Celebrity Apprentice," "Nashville Star," "Gone Country," and "The Star Next Door" in the past.
