It’s non-stop stalker drama for the KUWTK family these days!
On Thursday, a 36-year-old woman named Christina Elizabeth Bankston was arrested by the FBI in her home in Newark, CA on the suspicion that she was the one who hacked the Kardashian/Jenner matriarch and threatened the 60-year-old’s family. The nurse’s assistant is accused of sending countless texts and emails to Kris, as well as harassing the reality TV maven’s family members and assistant via the phone for about six months in 2014.
Allegedly, Bankston told Jenner she had a sex tape of the mother-of-six and threatened to release it. According to the prosecutors, Christina also made several claims that she wanted to see Kris naked and engaged in a sex act. After hacking into Kris’ iCloud and changing the password, Bankston used the obtained information to impersonate Jenner. Not only did Christina (pretending to be Kris) send explicit messages to the San Diego native’s ex Caitlyn Jenner, but she also told one pal that she had cancer.
Additionally, the suspect flooded the E! celeb’s Instagram account with extremely negative content about African Americans, her family, and much more. Reportedly, each of the various hacking and stalking charges carry a maximum penalty of five years in a federal prison — oh, and the identity theft charge has a mandatory two year sentence on it.
Christina is slated to appear in court today, August 19. Ch-ch-check back for more details as this story is developing!
