The eldest daughter of the late Kobe Bryant, Natalia Bryant, has filed for a temporary restraining order against a guy she claims has followed her in person and sent her frequent messages on social media.
She told the court, “I do not feel secure,” before adding that she has never met Kemp, who believes they are dating.
According to court documents acquired by Fox, Bryant has accused Kemp of texting her on social media since December 2020 “as if we had a romantic connection, or as if he wished to establish such a relationship.”
According to court documents, Kemp allegedly sent Bryant a series of unwanted communications, including a photo of her deceased father with the rest of the family.
Natalia Bryant stated that she did not feel protected before stating that she had never met Kemp.
