The eldest daughter of late NBA legend Kobe Bryant, Natalia, has a stalker. The 20-year-old is seeking a restraining order against a man that Natalia claims have been stalking her for several months.
Natalia Bryant, the eldest daughter of the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant, has filed a request for a restraining order in Los Angeles, according to an NBC News report.
The University of Southern California student and model filed a civil harassment lawsuit against 32-year-old Dwayne Cortez Tolliver on Monday.
According to the filing, Kemp started to harass Bryant in 2020 when she was 17 and he was 30. Since 2020, Kemp has attempted to message Bryant romantically, where she became more fearful after he began talking about meeting in person unwarranted.
In July 2021, Kemp sent Bryant a picture of her father and hoped they could have a “Kobe-like” child together. Kemp has attempted to find her multiple times on USC’s campus, most recently on November 2, and Bryant said she feared for her safety.
Kemp has been described as a “gun enthusiast” and posted pictures of guns on his social media accounts. Shortly after being on USC’s campus, Kemp was arrested or convicted several times for firearm-related incidents.
The USC Police and LAPD have supported Bryant’s request for a restraining order, even though the Bryant family has had issues with the LAPD after Kobe’s death. A new court hearing for Kemp is set for December 14.
