Sadly, it seems that these days, frighteningly overzealous fans have become an accepted consequence of A-list stardom.
The only sliver lining to the dark cloud of obsessive weirdos is the fact that stars have watched one another deal with unwanted attention from creepy admirers for so long that they know it's something to be taken seriously, and they're quick to act in their own defense.
The latest celeb to find herself at the fearing for her safety in the wake of a terrifying run-in is Kylie Jenner.
According to TMZ, an unidentified man drove up to Kylie's house several weeks ago and began ramming the gate with his car in an effort to get inside.
Despite the presence of guards on the scene, the man was able to make a clean getaway.
However, Kylie's nightmare was far from over.
The man recently returned and tried to crash through the gates again.
Fortunately, this time the guards were able to get his plate number and police arrested the man at his home shortly after the incident.
Unfortunately, he was only charged with two counts of misdemeanor vandalism, which means there's a good possibility he'll be back on the streets in no time.
Coming from one of the country's most recognizable families, of course, Kylie is no stranger to the pitfalls of fame.
As such, she knew that it was time to act quickly.
Kylie sold her mansion and immediately put a down payment on a new home.
The place is still in Calabasas, but it's said to be more heavily-protected than her starter mansion.
Tabloids were confused as to why she was house hunting less than a year after settling into her first place, and it was initially rumored that Kylie was buying a place for Tyga.
It's nice when a member of the Kardahian-Jenner clan surprises us with how smart and prudent their actions are.
Doesn't happen every day, ya know?
