A man has reportedly threatened to gun down Kendall Jenner before taking his own life. The man has been identified as Malik Bowker against whom the 25-year-old model has got a temporary restraining order from a judge on Monday, March 29, to save her from him. Jenner has claimed that the 24-year-old man traveled across the country to murder her.

As per new legal documents which have been obtained by TMZ, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer informed Jenner about the man’s alleged killing plan on Thursday, March 25.

In the papers, the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star claimed that the detective told her that Bowker had plans to purchase an illegal firearm to claim her life and then himself. However, currently, he has been held on a temporary psychiatric hold at a local hospital's psychiatric ward. But he can be released anytime.

Jenner said that though she has zero interaction with Bowker, his alleged killing plan has caused her grave emotional distress and anxiety. She also added that due to the man’s alleged threats, she is frightened that after getting discharged from the psychiatric ward, he would find her and attempt to harm or murder her. According to the restraining order by the judge, Bowker has to maintain at least 100 yards distance from her.

It's not the first time Jenner has been threatened like this. In 2016, she informed police about 25-year-old Shavaughn McKenzie, who was standing in the driveway of her West Hollywood home. The reality star alerted cops about him when he followed her car and attempted to get near her. Two years after the incident, in 2018, a stalker attacked the ‘Ocean's Eight’ star after reportedly breaking into her house three times. The then 37-year-old John Ford suspect was arrested. 

At the time, Jenner also accused TMZ of revealing the location of her £6.5 million mansion that let the man know where she lived. “And how do you guys think these terrifying people know where my house is? cuz you release not only photos but my location. it is so beyond unsafe. is this not our one ounce of privacy we can get??? [sic],” she tweeted then. Jenner added, “I understand what i’ve signed up for but when you release the exact location to where i live THAT is when you’re putting my life in danger. your home is your safe haven, but for me, cuz of outlets like you, my home is anything BUT. you should be ashamed of yourself. [sic]"

In an episode of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, she also claimed that "I literally once a week have a stalker, maybe more, twice a week."

'Have some respect'

Several people reacted to her tweets at the time as one commented, “Everyone forgets that celebrities are actually human beings too. Being on a reality show and allowing people into your daily life via that outlet does not give ANYONE the right to infringe on your basic privacy rights. Fans, stalkers, paparazzi, media. Etc. Have some respect.” Another one wrote, “OMG. I’m so sorry sweetheart. They should be ashamed. Stay safeFolded hands. Keep close to your family. They have your back kiddo. There are way too many creepy people out there. Please stay safe!!”
