Natalia Bryant Files Temporary Restraining Order Against Man Who's Stalked Her Since Childhood

The 19-year-old expressed that she is "terrified" of his efforts to make physical contact with her.

The late Kobe Bryant’s daughter, Natalia, has taken protective measures against an adult man who has been stalking her since she was a child.

The 19-year-old filed a temporary restraining order at the Los Angeles County Superior Court against 32-year-old Dwayne Kemp, according to FOX News.

The news outlet also reported that Kemp had an extensive rap sheet. Natalia claimed that her alleged stalker had sent her inappropriate messages in December 2020 "as if we had a romantic relationship, or as if he wanted to initiate such a relationship."

Natalia insisted that she didn’t know Kemp, and he attempted to find her on USC’s campus. Court records said Kemp was a "gun enthusiast" and "has been arrested for misdemeanors involving a firearm."

The 19-year-old expressed that she is "terrified" of his efforts to make physical contact with her.

"I do not feel safe," Natalia said in the documents.

The teen also said that the man stalked her on social media, lurking and commenting on her IG stories.

"Thankful For Him Birthing You. Hopefully, We Can Birth Him… ‘Kobe.’" he reportedly wrote.

Natalia petitioned the court to keep the disturbed man at least 200 yards away from everywhere she goes.

No ruling has been issued yet.
