Celebrity fans can sometimes be passionate and bordering on crazy, and now there’s a worry that infatuation could get more obsessive and even sinister.
Experts are now warning against ‘genetic paparazzi’ and the potential rise of ‘celebrity DNA theft’. Yes that’s right, actual stealing of DNA.
Law professors from Georgia State University and the University of Maryland are now arguing that ‘genetic paparazzi’ could soon be coming after the DNA of public figures, including celebrities and politicians.
According to legal documents obtained by Us Weekly, the trial will begin on Monday, June 13. This comes five years after Chyna, 34, originally sued Kardashian, 35, after he leaked explicit images of her on social media.
The former couple first sparked romance rumors in January 2016. Chyna and Kardashian got engaged after three months of dating and announced that they were expecting their first child together. Viewers got to see their romance documented in E!’s reality series Rob & Chyna, which aired from September to December 2016.
