Oh, it's tough being a celebrity, is what Kim Kardashian probably thinks before closing her eyes and drifting off to sleep. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has reportedly been granted a restraining order against a stalker of hers, according to the New York Daily News.
The obsessed fan, named Dennis Shaun Bowman, supposedly believes that he is dating the 29-year-old reality star, in addition to constantly professing his love for her. It all began when he started sending messages to Kim over Twitter, later moving from Georgia to Calabasas, California to be nearer to her.
That isn't the worst bit, apparently. Bowman also kept showing up wherever Kim Kardashian was in Los Angeles, even wearing face paint to look like the Joker. He also managed to send a Twitter message to Reggie Bush, the star's boyfriend, in the hopes of fighting him for her hand.
Bowman even set up an imaginary date for himself and Kim Kardashian in Atlanta, but wasn't able to make it. Still, he apologized to the star over Twitter about standing her up on that dinner engagement, when she wasn't even going.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians
celebrity obviously saw the guy as a threat. This led LAPD's Threat Management unit to suggest filing a restraining order against him. Kim Kardashian agreed, the document was granted, and Bowman is ordered by law to stay 500 yards away from the star and cease contacting her.TMZ
also reports that this isn't the only thing protecting Kim Kardashian from Bowman. A very worried Reggie Bush hired an army of bodyguards to accompany the Keeping Up with the Kardahsians
star during her public appearances. Imagine that, six men following the reality celebrity around.
It's only right for the New Orleans Saints athlete to worry, but isn't six bodyguards a little too much? Nevertheless, we wouldn't really know unless we were living the lifestyles of the rich and reality TV-famous.
