Earlier this week, TMZ reported on the strange case of a 17-year-old girl who claimed that the youngest and most popular Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, had been stalking and harassing her, and even staged a car accident in an attempt to kill her. The teen went as far as filing a temporary restraining order against Kylie and signing to affirm her allegations are true.
The alleged stalking victim, Chelsea Clark, says in her application for a restraining order that Kylie became irate after mystical celeb-spawn (and Kylie’s rumored ex) Jaden Smith said he wanted to date Chelsea. She claims Kylie retaliated with a sophisticated, three-year stalking campaign:
“Kylie Kristen Jenner has been stalking me and trying to ruin my life for three years because Jaden Smith wanted to date me and I guess she found out and was upset and called me and said ‘leave my boyfriend alone cause you will never be like me.’ From then on she had people follow me, send me threatening messages saying she’s going to ruin me.”
“About the past 2-3 months she’s threatened and tried to kill me by orkastrating [sic] a car accident that I was in and having people contact me through social media saying ‘I am coming for you and it’s war.’ She’s hired or paid people to be apart of my life and ruin my job, my name, and my family. She has stolen my house keys and made copies of them, and sent the keys...”
“She has had people stalk me for 3 years and hacked into my emails and had her crew steal my mom’s electronics worth $2,000 plus.”
Sources close to Kylie and Jaden both deny they’ve ever heard of Chelsea Clark, and you probably haven’t, either. So, who is Chelsea? Where did this stalking case come from, and how did she end up in the orbit of two international celebrities in the first place?
Chelsea and her mom, Camille Nix, run a company called Virtuoso Entertainment, which was established in May 2014 according to California business records. On social media, Chelsea lists herself as CEO, and Camille is president.
That July, Virtuoso put on its biggest (and possibly only?) event ever: VirtuosoFest. It was held at a Hollywood concert space called Avalon, and featured a lineup of up-and-coming teen musicians you’ve never heard of. It also somehow landed huge Vine stars including Kian Lawley, Hayes Grier (currently on Dancing With the Stars), and Carter Reynolds (remember him?).
This group of Vine-famous teens had split off from a huge event called MagCon back in April, just a month before Virtuoso was officially incorporated, and it seems like Virtuoso was trying to capitalize on the rift.
Apparently, VirtuosoFest was a disaster. There was no VirtuosoFest this summer, and a manager for the cluster of Vine personalities who appeared at the event told Gawker that “VirtuosoFest defaulted on their contract with our clients. We were very disappointed to say the least.”
Which brings us to the present day, when Virtuoso Entertainment appears to be nothing more than a half-finished website with an empty client list and broken links to an optimistic list of tour cities with no dates.
Oh, and a highly publicized request for a restraining order against the hottest social media personality of the moment, Kylie Jenner.
Gawker reached out to Chelsea and her mom to ask about that restraining order, which was provisionally denied after Chelsea missed a court date last Monday where she was supposed to provide evidence against Jenner.
Camille Nix told us she couldn’t comment on the pending case—the next court date is October 8, according to the legal paperwork—but that we could take a look at her daughter’s IMDB page if we wanted to know more about her.
On that page, we learned a lot about Chelsea. She’s homeschooled. Her talents include “Dancing, Pilot, Teleprompter, Singing, Host, Voiceover, Improvisation,” and the ability to do a Texan accent. She was the director/producer of VirtuosoFest 2014. She also claims to have worked with Patrice Wilson, the mastermind behind teen vanity music videos like Rebecca Black’s “Friday.”
We didn’t learn how Chelsea might know Kylie Jenner or Jaden Smith.
Gawker also asked Nix about the allegations that Kylie Jenner’s “crew” had robbed her of thousands of dollars in electronics, and whether she intended to pursue separate legal action. She didn’t provide any answers about that, either, but did respond with a piece of the alleged evidence that Kylie Jenner is a jealous and dangerous stalker.
Nix said this was a message sent to her daughter by Jenner’s “close friend,”Alexa Dellanos:
A couple of things about Alexa Dellanos: First, she’s the daughter of TV reporter Myrka Dellanos. She’s also a minor Instagram personality whose claim to fame is allegedly being kicked out of a hotel room by Vine performer Cameron Dallas (who didn’t appear at VirtuosoFest, but is part of the clique of Vine stars described above) after she allegedly lied about having sex with him and spread a rumor he was bad in bed.
Cameron's deleted tweets for anyone wondering lmao, sassy Cameron is great pic.twitter.com/xU4oQxFkzM— Zoe. Xo (@zoelouisesmithx) April 14, 2014
Second, “alexxdellanos” is not Dellanos’ real Instagram handle. It’s actually an account with zero followers (except for me, briefly) that only follows one other account: @VirtuosoFest.
Very interesting, because Clark’s restraining order paperwork references this message specifically:
“As soon as she [Kylie Jenner] had her friend Alexa Dellanos send it to me I sent it to my mom via text,” Clark writes, dating the incident Sept. 9.
Gawker inquired about the suspicious, fake-seeming message, and Nix replied that Dellanos must have changed the account herself:
We have copies of the account BEFORE Alexa changed it. I personally viewed her followers and the DM myself. Now it appears that it has all of a sudden changed? Hmmmm... Nice try!!!...but we have more pics and copies....Chelsea won’t be releasing anything else until the time is right.
Alexa Dellanos didn’t respond to a request to comment (through her real Instagram account) on Chelsea’s accusations.
And the incidents referenced in the alleged threatening message only complicate the situation even further.
PingTank is a social media messaging startup that threw an elaborate mansion party in June featuring Kylie Jenner, a surprise performance by Kylie’s boyfriend Tyga, and at least some members of the Vine gang that dumped Virtuoso last year.
It’s not clear what, if anything, Virtuoso had to do with PingTank or that publicity stunt. PingTank founder Jeremy Greene, who reportedly hosted the party at his own Hollywood Hills home, didn’t respond to a request for comment from Gawker.
“Reyna” is Reyna Roberts, a teenage singer who tweeted in July that she had become “part of Virtuoso.” She was excited to move into the Virtuoso House—which the company bills as a three-story Hollywood Hills mansion and a “dream situation” for young entertainers—and celebrate her 18th birthday there.
But Reyna’s enthusiasm quickly turned sour, according to her Twitter timeline. By August, she was tweeting that Chelsea Clark and Virtuoso had made lavish promises about a mansion birthday party, then failed to deliver at the last minute.
Reyna and her mom, Dr. Kenitha Roberts, didn’t respond to a request to comment for this story, but Reyna’s tweets lay out her case fairly clearly. She called Virtuoso a “fake-ass, fraudulent company” and posted alleged messages from Virtuoso promising valet service, a red carpet, cake, a DJ, a stage, and a film crew.
But Reyna says she didn’t get what she was expecting.
“I literally found out yesterday that Virtuoso didn’t plan anything for my party even though they were pretending to. They are scam artists. Now there are 800 people expecting a party ... thanks for ruining my birthday, Virtuoso,” she wrote on August 14, alongside a photo suggesting she was filing a police report for theft by trickery.
Meanwhile, the VirtuosoFest Twitter account disavowed all association with the party, claiming “our accounts were hacked and our servers were compromised!” and that “anyone who shows up will be greeted by 20+ police officers.”
Camille Nix released a video strenuously denying that her company had anything to do with the event, and alleging that Reyna and her mother had been “operating and, actually, associating themselves with Virtuoso.”
“I will say there were some links within the company that initially caused this breach,” she said, “Those have been resolved. When I found out about those, I ended the relationship. And because of that, unfortunately, we are putting the VirtuosoFest tour on hold, and we are also putting the move-in for the Virtuoso House on hold.”
“They’re making me look like I’ve hacked them,” Reyna wrote, “They’re even sending out emails to the people who RSVP’d, saying I’m a fraud and that they have nothing to do with this party.”
Virtuoso never made clear who allegedly hacked the company’s servers, but Reyna came back a month later with some more accusations of her own: that Chelsea Clark had created fake celebrity Twitter accounts and used them to “stalk, harass, and cyber bully my family.”
She added that she was working with “law enforcement officials and other victims of fraud” to “expose” Virtuoso.
Whichever side of this beef between fame-chasing L.A. teens and their families is telling the truth, it’s clear that the fallout has put Virtuoso’s operations on hold. And, remember, the alleged threatening message from Kylie Jenner’s “close friend” claimed that “Kylie warned you” about Reyna.
Do Chelsea Clark and her mom believe that Kylie Jenner masterminded the Reyna feud to destroy them and their business, all because Kylie was jealous over Jaden Smith?
“No comment,” Camille Nix responded, via email.
