Ladies, as we know, there’s only ONE Brantley Gilbert, but on the show this morning I told you about  an Indiana man from tried posing as the singer. After sending emails and text messages acting as if he were Brantley, 25-year-old Thomas Michael Barth has been charged with two counts of felony theft, according to a statement made by the Warsaw Police Department.

He posed, first, as Brantley’s manager and photographer — and later Brantley himself. Barth received more than $8,000 worth of personalized products and clothing from Robert’s Signs during a three-month period. He also obtained more than $4,000 in musical and electronic equipment, as well as a computer. 

Brantley and his managers had recieved a number of complaints about Barth using the country star’s name and they ordered him to stop, but the man didn’t stop.

For now, it seems that Brantley’s identity is safe. Whew!!!!!!
