Kendall Jenner Lashes Out at ‘TMZ’ for Invasive Stalker Reports
Tabloid darling Kendall Jenner is officially done giving gossip outlets free reign, and has lashed out at TMZ for publishing intimate details about her Los Angeles home as part of its latest story series.
On Thursday (October 18), TMZ reported that Jenner's home had been the target of a 37-year-old stalker named John Ford, who tried on more than one occasion to get inside Jenner's home (he'd gone as far as to climb a mountainside to try to sneak in, and successfully got as far as a chair on Jenner's porch). And while the outlet may have thought it was doing Jenner a service by reporting the news, she...didn't quite see it that way, and said such stories, contrarily, feed the danger she faces, and even encourage more obsessed fans to seek her out.
“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," Jenner wrote as part of a string of heated tweets. "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.”
Further, Jenner said the reason certain people may know the details of her location at all is because of tabloid reports.
"and how do you guys think these terrifying people know where my house is?" she noted. "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???"
Jenner instantly found support from her fans, who tweeted that they had her back.
"this so disrespectful baby! i'm beyond worried about you. stay safe please, we need you and your kind heart here to always spread love," one follower wrote, while another noted "Everybody deserves privacy! This is truly disgusting and I hope you are okay Kenny."
