Kobe Bryant’s daughter has been granted court-ordered protection against an alleged stalker she said has been harassing her for two years, according to Bleacher Report.

Natalia Bryant, 19, said Dwayne Kemp, 32, has been under the impression that they have been in a relationship since she was 17, according to TMZ.

According to NBC News, Kemp’s stalking escalated over the years and witnesses include University of Southern California’s department of public safety, and Bryant’s fellow sorority members. The school’s public safety department recommended a restraining order be put in place.

In the report, Bryant said Kemp sent her a message on social media, which included an image of her late father, with a note that read, ““Thankful for him birthing you, hopefully we can birth him…’Kobe.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, as recently as Nov. 2, Kemp went to USC’s campus, where Bryant is a student, attempting to find her and give her a bouquet of flowers. He said he wanted to give them to her because it was an important day in her family, Día de Muertos.

“It appears that the subject was possibly referring to Natalia's deceased father, Kobe Bryant, and referring to Natalia’s Mother, Vanessa Bryant’s partial Hispanic heritage,” according to a campus police report obtained by the LA Times. Kemp eventually left the flowers at Bryant’s sorority house after he was unable to find her.

Kemp is reportedly a “gun enthusiast,” according to The Cut. He has been arrested at least four times for misdemeanors, including one incident that involved a gun, according to the LA Times. Court documents said he is in the process of buying a gun and his social media reveals he is interested in the AK-47 or a fully automatic weapon.

Bryant’s restraining order calls for Kemp to stay at least 200 yards away from her, her college, sorority house, car, home, and job.
