LOS ANGELES – The NBA star Kobe Bryant’s daughter filed a restraining order Wednesday against a stalker who was caught on video allegedly harassing her, according to the St. Petersburg Times.

Natalia’s ex-husband Jordan Pundik, whose lawyer declined to comment on the report, told the Tampa Bay Times that the unidentified man had sent Natalia threatening emails and texts over the past few weeks.

The latest incident sparked an all-out war with Natalia and her family, Pundik told the Tampa Bay Times.

“From the moment she was born, this person has made it clear that she would be his princess,” his lawyer, Alan Goldfarb, said in a statement to the St. Petersburg Times. “I have worked with Jordan for the past five years to prepare him for the worst. Now he can finally be his own man.”

St. Petersburg police are currently investigating the incident.

The former basketball star, 39, is one of the most well-known faces in American sports with the Los Angeles Lakers. The former WNBA player, who had a career-high 41 points in a win over Connecticut in a Game 6 playoff loss to Charlotte in February, has a net worth estimated at $100 million.

Bryant’s Lakers played their first game this season, a 99-90 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls in Los Angeles before a sellout crowd at Staples Center on March 25.

If that wasn’t enough, he now has two more children to raise with his ex-wife Afton after a five-year separation in June 2013. He has three girls and two boys from the relationship with Kiki, and there are now plans to move to Los Angeles for a family life.
