Celebrities are frequently targeted by intruders, thieves, and stalkers. Kim Kardashian, one of America’s wealthiest reality TV stars, has been the target of many robberies and incursions. And, on Saturday, the business magnate averted another potentially disastrous incident.
According to accounts, a would-be intruder nearly broke into her Hidden Hills home this weekend. Thanks to the quick-thinking security officers who apprehended him near the main community gate and summoned the cops.
The trespasser, who was taken into custody and charged with trespassing and battery charges, is named Deandre Williams, reports TMZ. Security intercepted him only a few feet away from the house’s entrance. However, TMZ reported that there was a scuffle between the guards and the trespasser before he was ultimately pinned and taken to the cops.
Reports suggest that Williams could penetrate the initial barrier and slip through community security at first, but didn’t get far due to an early detection intruder system managed by guards and motion detectors.
Sources say it was clear that he was there for Kim as he is obsessed with her.
In 2017, Kim and her then-husband Kanye West’s home was broken into by burglars who targeted their Bel Air mansion. The robbers ransacked three of the pair’s luxury cars, almost a year after Kim was robbed in Paris.
Kim’s sister, Kylie Jenner, also had to deal with an intrusion by an obsessed fan last year. The intruder was arrested at her home after he showed up unannounced and demanded to see the makeup mogul face-to-face. Since he refused to leave, security called the police and held him until they arrived to arrest him.
