Natalia Bryant is taking action after a 32-year-old man named Dwayne Kemp continues to stalk her. The daughter of Vanessa Bryant and the late Kobe Bryant recently filed a police report with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
According to documents obtained by TMZ,
“Natalia says Kemp attempted to contact her 2 years ago — when he was 30 and she was 17. She says he’s under a delusion they have a romantic relationship. Natalia says she has never met or otherwise had contact with him.”
The authorities are especially concerned about Kemp’s activities, which have included firearms in the past. The alleged stalker has also reportedly visited her school and sent direct messages that presented a world in which he knew her mom, personally.
In one message, Dwayne wrote to Natalia, “I love you and I’m sorry. Can we talk and make up so we can be friends?”
Reports allege Kemp started stalking Natalia online in 2020. She was 17 years old at the time. Authorities described Kemp’s attempts to speak with Bryant as “[an] escalating course of harassing conduct, including delusions that he and Ms. Bryant have an amorous relationship as a couple.”
The document added, “Ms. Bryant, her family, and law enforcement are afraid and concerned for her safety.”
Natalia Bryant has moved further into the spotlight these past few months. The young adult signed with IMG models last year.
“I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” Natalia shared with WWD. “I have a love for the industry, and ever since I can remember, I wanted to model,” she added. “There is a lot to learn, but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”
Natalia is the oldest of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s four kids. She celebrates her twentieth birthday in January.
