Kendall Jenner was granted a temporary restraining order on Thursday after a 25-year-old man was arrested for trespassing onto her property in the Hollywood Hills.
“As a result of Mr. McKenzie’s repeated harassment and stalking of me, I fear for my life and have suffered, and continue to suffer, emotional distress,” the 20-year-old model stated in documents obtained by ET.
On Sunday night, after getting dinner with Tyler, The Creator, Jenner told police that she came home to find Shavaughn McKenzie seated on the curb in front of her house and claimed she recognized him from previous alleged incidents of harassment at her former residence. According to the arrest report, Jenner opened the gate to drive onto her property but kept a close eye out, making sure he didn’t follow her. When she saw that McKenzie had, Jenner got back into her car, locked the doors and contacted her friend and legendary music executive Irving Azoff. That’s when McKenzie allegedly started banging his fists on Jenner’s car windows. Azoff then called the police and Jenner drove off and met two of her friends outside the property. Jenner claims she told her friends where McKenzie was, and upon finding him, they told him to sit on the curb until law enforcement arrived.
“I just wanted to have a conversation with her, but everything just went wrong,” McKenzie told police. “If she could just see what a chill guy I am, I know she’d want to be with me.”
McKenzie, who has an arrest record, also admitted to other instances where he attempted to make contact with Jenner. “Yeah, I would wait outside of her apartment sometimes,” he said. “I tried to talk to her once, and got scared when she threatened to call the police. Every time, I just want to talk to her. Something always goes wrong. That’s all.”
McKenzie has been charged with two misdemeanors – one count of stalking and one count of trespassing. On Wednesday, a judge imposed a $120,000 bail, and the next hearing is set for Aug. 30 at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Court.
The next hearing regarding Jenner’s temporary restraining order against McKenzie will be on Sept. 9 at the Santa Monica Courthouse.
