KENDALL JENNER’S STALKER LOUNGING BY HER POOL? Security can only do so much when you have a mountain in your backyard. Kendall Jenner has another stalker, TMZ reports, and despite seriously upping her security, 37-year-old John Ford scaled the mountain in the back of her ritzy complex and ended up in her backyard, by the pool. By the time her security crew called police, he’d escaped. This was last week, but then he returned again on Tuesday and police caught him. He is being detained on a 5150 psychiatric hold. This isn’t his first time stalking Jenner: Ford was arrested last month for breaking into her community as well.
