Natalia Bryant has reportedly filed a restraining order request against a man she says has been stalking her since she was a minor.
The model and daughter of the late Kobe Bryant filed the documents in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday.
Bryant, 19, claimed 32-year-old Dwayne Kemp has been messaging her since December 2020 ‘as if we had a romantic relationship, or as if he wanted to initiate such a relationship’ in the court documents, obtained by TMZ and Fox News.
The documents claim that Kemp has tried to find her on the University of Southern California campus, and turned up at her sorority.
They also say that Kemp, who has been convicted of four misdemeanors, one involving a firearm, is also reportedly in the process of buying at least one gun, with the sale about to go through.
Bryant reportedly said: ‘I do not feel safe’, in the request.
The documents allege that Kemp sent Bryant messages including a response to a family photo that read: ‘Thankful For Him Birthing You, Hopefully We Can Birth Him… ‘Kobe.’’
Another reportedly read: ‘I Love You And I’m Sorry. Can We Talk And Makeup So We Can Be Friends Again..?.’
Bryant is asking that the court order Kemp to stay at least at least 200 yards away from her home, job, school, her sorority and her car.
She lost her father and younger sister Gianna in January 2020 in a helicopter crash.
Bryant told Teen Vogue last year: ‘I love talking about my dad. It’s bittersweet, but I enjoy talking about him more than it’s sad for me.’
She added: ‘You do the best that you can. [For] my little sisters [we’re] trying to keep that memory for them. And also just trying to remember to live out every day the way they would.’
