Natalia Bryant, the eldest daughter of the late Kobe Bryant, has filed for a temporary restraining order against a man she says personally stalked her and repeatedly messaged her on social media.
In court documents filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the 19-year-old said a 32-year-old man named Dwayne Kemp left her, fearing for her life, TMZ reports.
“I don’t feel safe,” she told the court, before adding that she has never met Kemp, who believes the pair are dating.
Bryant accused Kemp of messaging her on social media since December 2020 “as if we were in a romantic relationship, or as if he wanted to get into such a relationship,” court documents obtained by Fox show.
The court documents allege that Kemp sent Bryant a series of unsolicited messages, including a photo of her late father with the rest of the family.
“Grateful he gave birth to you, hopefully we can give birth to him… ‘Kobe’,” Kemp wrote in the purported post.
Bryant also said she received another message from him in October 2022 that read, “I love you and I’m sorry.” Can we talk and make up so we can be friends again…?”
According to court documents, Kemp tried to find Bryant in her dorm at the University of Southern California.
Kemp is described as a “gun enthusiast” and “has been arrested for offenses involving a firearm.” He has been arrested at least four times.
If the restraining order is granted, Kemp would be ordered to stay at least 200 yards away from her, as well as from her residence, her workplace, her dorm and her vehicle.
Natalia is the eldest daughter of Vanessa and Kobe Bryant, who got married in 2001. The pair also shared Bianka, Capri, and Gianna.
The Lakers legend, 41, and 13-year-old Gianna were among the nine dead in a helicopter crash in California in January 2020.
