Media powerhouse Megyn Kelly secretly lives in fear, RadarOnline.com has learned, after years of being terrorized by a demented ex-convict with weapons training!
Kelly describes her personal nightmare in chilling detail in her explosive new book, Settle For More, out today.
The Fox News superstar writes that the sicko began to bombard her in 2006 with letters and emails. Though they were "gibberish," she says that only made them more terrifying because experts said they showed he was a dangerous fantasist.
"The police said he was an 'erotomaniac,' meaning he believed he had a love relationship with me, even though we'd never met," says Kelly.
They also warned her that he had "been violent with another female stalking victim."
Then one day he showed up right in front of her.
"For the first time since I could remember, I was genuinely scared," says Kelly, who was living alone after breaking up with her first husband, Daniel Kendall.
Her Fox News bosses hired her two round the clock guards packing loaded revolvers to watch her home at night. And Kelly armed herself, too.
Her book reproduces her journal entry for Aug 11, 2006, and it reads: "Went to the shooting range last weekend. It was kind of stressful. The adrenaline was flowing and when it was all over I felt quite anxious. At one point I became slightly overwhelmed – seeing myself there, goggles on, headphones on, firing a loaded. 357 Magnum, a 9 mm semi-automatic, even an enormous shotgun."
The stalker eventually went to prison — but is now back on the street.
"I remain under threat," Kelly insists, fuming at what she perceives as the court's lenient attitude towards his crime.
"Nine times out of ten stalking is treated as a misdemeanor," she writes. "It's not until a stalker does something worse than stalking that the courts finally get interested."
