NEWARK, Calif. (KGO) -- A Bay Area woman is under arrest, accused of cyberstalking reality TV star Kris Jenner.

The feds say "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star Kris Jenner and her family were stalked and harassed by Bankston for six-months.

A relative shared this clip of Bankston riding a roller coaster, professing her love for Kris Jenner.

According to the 15 count indictment, Bankston used these alias' to contact the Jenner-Kardashian family. First, to allegedly harrass Kris Jenner about a sex tape which she threatened to go public.

She texted Jenner: "Let's talk. My bad, Let's stalk."

Bankston is accused of hacking into Jenner's iCloud account and accessing her email and phone numbers and impersonating the star through calls and texts, telling some she was sick with cancer. Even calling police to say a family member committed suicide.

Ex-spouse, Caitlyn Jenner was also the target of the cyberstaking. Celebrity blogger, Jacky Jasper says Bankston impersonated him to contact Jenner.

"Everyone thought I was stalking Kris and had issues with the family, so far from true," Jasper said.

"I know people get fixated, very strange," said neighbor Jan Mackenzie.

Bankston will appear in federal court on Friday. If convicted, she could serve five years in prison.
