Model Kendall Jenner has been granted a five-year restraining order against a stalker.

Jenner testified in court on Thursday against Shavaughn McKenzie, who was charged with stalking her and trespassing outside her Hollywood Hills home in August.

“I’ve never been so scared in my life,” Jenner told a judge about the ordeal.

According to the 20-year-old, McKenzie’s head was tucked between his knees when she first spotted him. The man banged on all the windows of her car when she screamed at him to leave, but she was able to drive down the street to get away from him.

Jenner told the jury that she was too scared to be home alone following the incident. She said she felt traumatised by the incident. Jenner had to stay at entertainment executive Irving Azoff’s house up the street for fear of being home alone.

“This is not how I want to be living. I really don’t feel safe in my own house. I’m already the kind of person who’s on edge,” said Jenner, who apparently now has 24-hour camera security around her property.

As per the court order, McKenzie was ordered to always stay 100 yards away from Jenner for the next half-decade.
