Natalia Bryant, Vanessa and Kobe Bryant's eldest daughter, reportedly filed for a restraining order on Monday against "a stalker with a criminal history involving guns," according to TMZ.
According to the source, Natalia Bryant has told authorities about a guy called Dwayne Kemp, 32, who attempted to contact her two years ago while she was young. According to TMZ, which obtained court documents, "she claims he believes they have a romantic relationship." "Natalia claims she has never met him or had any other contact with him."
Kemp is said to have recently visited Natalia's USC sorority house and a class she is enrolled in. According to the court documents, Kemp messaged Bryant about having "a Kobe-like child together," sharing an image of her late father and a heart with the lines, "Thankful For Him Birthing You, Hopefully We Can Birth Him... ‘Kobe.’”
According to the filing, Kemp has been arrested and/or convicted of "at least four crimes, including one involving firearms," is on the verge of legally obtaining a new gun, and has also "threatened to buy both an AK-47 and a fully automatic Glock."
While Natalia Bryant is waiting on the judge’s approval, the LAPD is “involved in the case and clearly wants a restraining order in place.”
In August, a judge decided in favor of Vanessa Bryant in a lawsuit against the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the Los Angeles County Fire Department over a gruesome photo released from the site of Kobe and Gianna's deadly helicopter accident, in which six other people died in January 2020.
Bryant said shortly after her triumph on the court that she will contribute the $16 million she was granted to the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.
