The Keeping up with the Kardashian star has been targeted by a stalker at her home.

Jenner has been left terrified after the stalker broke into her home for the second time in a matter of days. In 2016, Shavaughn McKenzie, 25, was found in the driveway of her west Hollywood home. Scared, she called 911 and waited in her car until police officers arrived. She later found out that there was a warrant out for his arrest. The reality star has had a history of being targeted by stalkers, she opened up on an episode of KUWTK saying that: “I literally once a week have a stalker, maybe more, twice a week.”
The model has taken to social media to express her anger, saying that TMZ has given out the exact location of her home. Making it all too easy for stalkers to find out where she lives.
With roughly 150 million users on social networking sites, the door for social media abuse is left open.
England soccer star, Karen Carney, has received rape and death threats through Instagram messages this past week. The messages started to flood in after her team Chelsea’s win against Fiorentina in the Champions League.
