Paris Hilton has become the victim of a stalker who turned up at her home in the same gated community as Kendall Jenner, who was also targeted this week.
A man who ‘looked insane and unstable’ managed to get past security to reach Hilton’s house in Los Angeles twice this week, according to aTooFab source.
According to the website Hilton, 37, wasn’t home at the time and her fiance Chris Zylka reportedly confronted the man and told him to leave.

When he refused Zylka then called security to escort him out. The man had apparently posed as a delivery man to get past the front security gate.
After his first attempt he apparently returned on Thursday night and tried to get into Hilton’s home, which is when cops were called.
Hilton is currently in Italy promoting her ProD.N.A line of Paris Hilton Skincare products.
TooFab reports the DJ has now increased security at her home, adding 24-hour armed guards.

It comes the same week a stalker was arrested at Jenner’s home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The accused stalker, a native of Canada named John Ford, was arrested after he was found on the supermodel’s porch.
To access the exclusive property Ford had to scale the side of a mountain adjacent to the home.

Worrying: It comes the same week a stalker was arrested at Kendall Jenner’s home in the same gated community
Authorities put him on a 5150 psychiatric hold, at which point – due to his lack of insurance – he was transported to Los Angeles County Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, the outlet reported.
Ford was determined to be stable mentally by a psychiatrist, and released from the hold well short of the 72-hour maximum.
TMZ reports he was re-arrested Thursday in connection with criminal trespassing and violation of a restraining order, with officials setting bail at $30,000, the outlet reported.
Ford was not on or near the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s property during his apprehension Thursday.

Due to overcrowding in LA County Jail, it is likely he was released within the day, the outlet reported.
He had been arrested in September after a break-in, pleaded guilty to a trespassing charge, and was issued a restraining order to remain at least 1,000 feet in distance from the property.
He did not obey, as he was spotted on the property twice since, with authorities placing him into custody the second time he was spotted on Tuesday.

Ford is slated for an arraignment, insiders told the outlet, and could be released on his own recognizance ahead of a potential trial.
Kendall’s legal team, headed by Shawn Holley, is seeking to obtain a civil restraining order against Ford, which would implement additional restrictions on the proximity he could be to the gated community where Kendall lives.
The gated community where the oldest daughter of Caitlyn and Kris Jenner lives is taking additional security measures in both manpower and fencing, TMZ previously reported. The area is a hotbed for celebs, with stars such as Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears also residing there.
