It's just that he gets so angry and jealous. I don't know what to do.
— Shirley

Shirley Harlingford is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto IV.



Shirley has been married to Jeff for an undetermined amount of time. He mentions that they have a son together.

She seems to be unhappy at home, due to her husband's increasing paranoia about her personal life. She reveals that the extent of his mania has reached the point that he has had her underwear stolen for DNA analysis, and that he is willing to have a tracking chip put in the base of her spine.

Events of GTA IV

Jeff tasks Niko Bellic with following his wife, under suspicion that she may be cheating on him. They arrive at the Superstar Café, where Niko takes pictures of the two, before vacating the scene.

Several days later, Niko receives a call from Jeff, who tells him that he stabbed his wife to death after confronting her. Niko then takes her body, stuffed in Jeff's Blista Compact and dumps it in the Humboldt River.
