Natalia Bryant, the oldest daughter of late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, has been granted a restraining order she sought out against an alleged stalker, who court documents cite is a "gun enthusiast."

According to TMZ, Natalia testified at a court hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday (December 14), saying she's terrified of what 32-year-old alleged stalker Dwayne Kemp might do next based on his "unsettling" actions over the past couple of months.

The 19-year-old's lawyer, Nick Sanchez, told TMZ the presiding judge was convinced that Kemp posed an imminent threat to Natalia and granted her a three-year restraining order.

Natalia initially sought a temporary restraining order last month, claiming Kemp had been messaging her on social media “as if we had a romantic relationship, or as if he wanted to initiate such a relationship" since December 2020, per court documents.

Kemp has also attempted to make in-person contact with Bryant at her University of Southern California sorority house, according to the docs. Natalia said her alleged stalker had even contacted her eyebrow beautician and offered to pay for the services she had done.

Court documents also allege that Kemp is a "gun enthusiast," citing a number of social media pictures of him with guns. The 32-year-old was previously arrested and/or convicted of at least four crimes, including one involving firearms, according to the docs.

Under the new three-year order, Kemp must stay at least 200 yards away from Natalia, her home, her job, her car, school, and sorority house at USC. He is also barred from possessing firearms and must surrender any weapons he currently owns.
