Sports Mogul Stan Kroenke

I Need Protection

from Gun-Toting Employee

Stan Kroenke
-- the billionaire behind the St. Louis Rams, the Denver Nuggets and Arsenal football (the English kind) -- says one of his employees stole a gun from him, tried to kill himself, and now he needs protection from the guy.

Kroenke obtained a temporary restraining order against Mark Waldo, his former property manager.  According to the docs, Waldo took the weapon from Kroenke's mansion in the hills above Malibu last weekend ... and when police responded he made a failed attempt to shoot himself in the head.

Kroenke says police immediately placed Waldo -- a 6'2" 300 lb. man -- on a 5150 psychiatric hold.

The TRO requires Waldo to move out of the Kroenke home -- and to stay 100 yards away from Kroenke and his wife, Anne. By the way, she happens to be a Walmart heir.

A hearing on whether to extend the protection order is scheduled for December 14.

Most terribly groomed billionaire ever. Looks like he sat on his sunglasses and trimmed his moustache in the dark.

Anyone who lives in the St. Louis, or Columbia Mo area can tell you what an a-hole this guy is. He makes enemies everywhere he goes when he doesn't get his way. He thinks that his money, he should be able to do anything he wants. In or out of the law.

you don't need     

Well I'll put this simple hire some honest people to take photo's and to run a video camera.
I have found out that your camera people are taking money to delete thing's from the cameras so that certain people don't lose the girlfriend they have. Not naming names here but last month a very good source told me that there was this guy who is dating a very famous woman and his riding on her fame.
He was seen leaving a place where he made a appearance at and TMZ followed him and was video recording him stopping and then he got out and let a young girl a younger girl then what he should be with. But he proceed to go back to the TMZ team and gave them money and the TMZ team gave him the tapes and film of what they just took pictures and video of.
The girl from what I know was around 15 years old and he is older then that and his girlfriend is older then him.
Even though this would destroy the girl he is dating she will get over it and move on but if this keeps up and he keeps doing what his doing which is un protected he could pass some disease on to her which could cost her her life.
I think some body on the TMZ team still has this evidence that could help the woman who is dating him so that she can see the real boy and move on in her life before this new gift is brought into this world that her family is expecting.
