Kendall Jenner lashes out at TMZ following multiple stalker intrusions

Kendall Jenner’s alleged stalker was arrested for a second time this week for trespassing and violating a restraining order, ABC reports.

37-year old John Ford had first been arrested on Tuesday, after he was caught relaxing near the model’s swimming pool. After being hit with a warning and a restraining order, Ford came back to Jenner’s residence once more. He was rearrested by the LAPD and charged with criminal trespassing.

This isn’t first-time occurrence for Jenner. In 2016 and 2017, she filed restraining orders against two other stalks, both of whom had sent her “creepy love letters.”

Jenner is fed up with the constant stalker threats, and places the blame on celebrity news outlet TMZ. She retweeted TMZ’s story about Ford, adding “and how do you guys think these terrifying people know where my house is? cuz you release not only photos but my location. It is so beyond unsafe. Is this not our one ounce of privacy we can get???…”

The model continued her rant at TMZ in a second tweet:

“I understand what I’ve signed up for but when you release the exact location to where I live THAT is when you’re putting my life in danger. Your home is your save haven, but for me, cuz of outlets like you, my home is anything BUT. you should be ashamed of yourself.”

It seems like Kendall is not the only Jenner who has had enough of the ‘spotlight’. Kylie Jenner shared her sister’s tweets on her Instagram story, stressing that “it is so beyond unsafe”.

It’s unclear how Kendall and Kylie’s mother, Kris Jenner, will handle the situation. The Kardashian superstar has close ties with the head of TMZ, Harvey Levin. The Jenners have had a close professional relationship with the news outlet, often providing TMZ with exclusives in exchange for a platform.

TMZ has denied official responsibility for the intrusion, claiming their reporting was not the stalker’s main source of information. Tuesday’s TMZ report does not appear to fully identify Kendall Jenner’s location, yet reveals that she lives in a gated community that the stalker gained access to. They show two photos, which allegedly are ‘near’ Jenner’s location but don’t show her exact address.

TMZ said in a statement:

“We reported on a public criminal case that has been filed against this individual, we never reported on her location.”
