Kendall Jenner has been awarded a temporary restraining order against her alleged stalker, a man who is accused of having trespassed onto her property multiple times in recent months.
Jenner requested and was awarded the order on Friday, with a judge ordering John Ford, 37, to keep a distance of 100 yards between himself and Jenner and her home, TMZ reports. Ford was arrested and placed on psychiatric hold on Tuesday after Jenner’s security team caught him loitering on Jenner’s front porch, having snuck into her gated community for at least the second time by making his way through the mountainous terrain that makes up the rear of the community, according to TMZ. Ford remains in custody on $56,000 bail, the outlet reports.
Jenner wrote that Ford’s “repeated stalking” — which allegedly includes showing up at her house four times within the last three months — has caused her emotional distress, according to a court declaration obtained by TMZ. Jenner told a judge that she was present in her home when Ford rang her doorbell at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, prior to his arrest, TMZ reports.
“The fact that he has continued to come to my home — despite all of my efforts to get him to stop — scares me,” Jenner wrote, according to the outlet.
The 22-year-old model and reality TV star slammed TMZ in a series of tweets last week, accusing the entertainment news site of endangering her by publishing photos of her house and sharing its location.
“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???” she wrote in one 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,” she said in a second tweet. “Your home is your safe haven, but for me, cuz of outlets like you, my home is anything BUT. you should be ashamed of yourself.”
