Jenner Frightened by Repeated Break-Ins
Kendall Jenner, the 22-year-old model and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, reportedly feels upset, betrayed and angry. A known stalker with a restraining order was still able to breach security at her exclusive gated community and invade her property again and yet again.
“Kendall is absolutely terrified right now, this guy is clearly unhinged and he’s managed to get very close to her twice,” a Kardashian insider told HollywoodLife.
Jenner claims the stalker, now under arrest, trespassed on her property several times during the past three months. His previous arrest before the recent two incidents was in September and Jenner fears what will happen when he gets released again.
Alleged Stalker Lounged Poolside at Jenner’s Home
The alleged stalker, identified as 37-year-old Canadian John Ford, was arrested after breaking into Jenner’s gated Beverly Hills community in September. Ford ended up pleading guilty to trespassing and was ordered to stay 1,000 feet away from Kenner’s posh Beverly Hills mansion. But he remained undeterred as he apparently invaded the property twice again in recent weeks. He accomplished this by skirting the front gated entrance and scaling the unguarded mountainside the community backs onto. He then proceeded to Jenner’s home. He was found lounging by her pool by her personal security staff. Jenner’s security promptly called the police, but Ford escaped before the LAPD arrived.
Ford then tried again. Once more he scaled the same mountainside which still had no security. This time he ended up on Jenner’s front porch. This time her security caught him. According to TMZ, he is currently being held on a 5150 psychiatric hold. Jenner’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, told Page Six that she is seeking a protective order for her client against Ford. He's also been charged with criminal trespass and violating a protective order.
Jenner Blames TMZ For Revealing Her Home Location
Upset and frightened by this latest incident, Jenner posted on Twitter and Instagram to vent frustration with TMZ. She blames the celebrity media site for outing her home’s location making her vulnerable to stalkers and burglars.
Posting a photo of TMZ’s tweet of the story, she wrote, reports the Observer, “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 relocated to her current mansion after a separate alarming experience at her former home in West Hollywood. Jenner was allegedly the victim of both a stalker and a break-in at that house. Kris Jenner reportedly advised her daughter to move to a gated community. Jenner took her mom’s advice. In 2017, she bought an $8.5 million-dollar mansion that once belonged to Charlie Sheen in a luxury gated community also once home to Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Christina Aguilera and Slash.
TMZ reports that fences are now being installed and security beefed up on the mountainside of the community.
Jenner reportedly feels extra anxiety since her sister Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room in 2016 and had $11 million in jewelry taken.
Smarter Home Security Needed
“…him being able to repeatedly make it onto her property has brought up a lot of fear over her security in general, like who else might be able to get that close?” said a source close to Jenner.
