  • TMZ recently reported that a “stalker” was apprehended on the front porch of Kendall Jenner’s home in Beverly Hills, California.
  • The site also published photos of Jenner’s house and the “mountainside in the back of the complex,” which the man reportedly scaled in order to get into her backyard.
  • Jenner slammed TMZ on Twitter for releasing “the exact location to where I live.”
  • “You’re putting my life in danger,” she wrote. “Your home is your safe haven, but for me, cuz [sic] of outlets like you, my home is anything BUT. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Kendall Jenner reportedly has another stalker on her hands – and, according to the top model, it’s thanks to websites like TMZ.

The infamous gossip site reported on Thursday that a “scary stalker” was apprehended on the front porch of Jenner’s home in Beverly Hills. The man was arrested in September for breaking into Jenner’s gated community – and pleaded guilty – but managed last week to scale “the mountainside in the back of the complex, where there is apparently no security.”

TMZ founder Harvey Levin broke down the incident in a video for “TMZ Newsroom Today,” which showed photos of Jenner’s home as well as the aforementioned mountainside.

“and how do you guys think these terrifying people know where my house is?” Jenner wrote on Twitter in response to the video. “cuz [sic] you release not only photos but my location. it is so beyond unsafe. is this not our one ounce of privacy we can get???”

“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,” she continued in an additional tweet.

“your home is your safe haven, but for me, cuz [sic] of outlets like you, my home is anything BUT. you should be ashamed of yourself.”

In a statement provided to INSIDER, a representative for TMZ denied that the website compromised Jenner’s security: “We reported on a public criminal case that has been filed against this individual, we never reported on her location.”

TMZ previously published images of Jenner’s home when she purchased the property in 2017. The website also made a point to note its apparently poor security; the house formerly belonged to Charlie Sheen, whose car was stolen out of the driveway.

Jenner moved into the Beverly Hills gated community after her pad in West Hollywood was the site of multiple incidents, including a burglary and a “crazed fan” who followed her up the driveway, according to TMZ.
