Kendall Jenner Says She Suffers from ‘Full Panic Attacks’ After Confronting Her Stalker

To say that Kendall Jenner and her family have weathered a series of traumatic experiences over the past year would be a sore understatement.

They’ve overcome obstacles together, including Kim Kardashian’s armed robbery during Paris Fashion Week and Kanye West’s subsequent mental breakdown, but Kendall was faced with an ordeal all her own before these events took place. In late August, Kendall found an intruder sitting on the end of her driveway. The young man approached her car and started banging on her window, so she drove away and called authorities to get help. Kendall later testified against him and was granted a five-year restraining order.

“I don’t feel normal,” she says in an interview for the May 2017 issue of Harper’s BAZAAR, “and I like to feel as normal as I possibly can.”

“I wake up in the middle of the night freaking out,” she continues. “Full panic attacks. They wake me up from my sleep, and I need to stand up and I pace and I’m freaking out and crying.”

Kendall also discusses her childhood as a “huge tomboy” in the magazine’s May issue.

“I had a phase where I wore boys’ clothes. I was always hanging out with guys. I’ve always connected with guys more,” she says. “I’ve always been the different one. I mean, I’m a girl and I like being a girl, but I’ve just never been into it like they have. I think I get that from my dad. I’d say I’m more of a Jenner than a Kardashian.”

The young supermodel shares insight on her relationship with her father, Caitlyn Jenner, and how she picked up clues that foreshadowed his transition that would occur later in life.

“It was like an investigation for a really long time,” says Kendall. “We would find little things [like wigs and nail polish] and think, ‘This isn’t normal.’ For a minute, we were like, ‘Okay, is he cheating?’ And then we’d say, ‘I don’t think so.'”
