Ivanka Trump (Splash News)
A man accused of harassing the 31-year-old daughter of Donald Trump was arrested in a Florida hotel room on Monday. He had followed Ivanka to the Sunshine State, where she representing her famous family at the Cadillac Championship golf tournament at Trump Doral Resort & Spa over the weekend, thus violating a restraining order she had against him from a New York court.
John Eugene Enabnit, 32, tried to gain entry to the media area of the golf tournament Saturday using someone else's press pass, Newsday reports. After being escorted from the premises, it was determined that he was in violation of the order. Police tracked him to his hotel on Monday and arrested him.
"He said he had been trying to get in touch with Ivanka and see her and court her," Doral Police Chief Richard Blom told the paper. "He admits he was on the grounds and he admits he was looking for her."
Enabnit, who is reportedly homeless and has no attorney, was arrested in February for harassment during the launching of Ivanka’s perfume line at Macy's in New York. As he was led away by store security, he screamed, “You're going to need an order of protection against me," the New York Post noted at the time.
And she did. In the “Celebrity Apprentice: All Stars” judge’s legal request for a restraining order, it was also noted that Enabnit showed up at her place of business, Trump Tower in Manhattan, seven times within a four-day span in February. Each time he demanded to speak with her and he was removed from the property.
A rep for Ivanka has not yet responded to omg!’s request for a comment.
This isn't Ivanka's first time dealing with unwanted attention from a so-called fan. In 2012, Justin Massler, a mentally ill man from Nevada, admitted to harassing her by sending her -- and her husband Jared Kushner -- bizarre tweets, emails, and videos.
Despite her drama-filled weekend, Ivanka was all smiles when she posed for a photo with the tournament champion Tiger Woods on Sunday. She also posted several adorable shots of her 1-year-old daughter, Arabella, including one also featuring Kushner, which she captioned "Daddy's girl."
