Kristin Cavallari recalls when a ‘psycho’ stalker slashed her tires, forcing her to get restraining order

Kristin Cavallari once had a stalker who went so far as to slash her tires to get her attention.

The reality star shared on her “Let’s Be Honest” podcast Tuesday that the man — who has been identified as David Berkowitz — learned where she worked out because she accidentally revealed it in an interview.

Cavallari claimed that Berkowitz signed up for classes with her same instructor — even though it turned out he lived 45 minutes away from that particular gym.

The “Laguna Beach” alum’s trainer told her at the time, “This guys is asking a lot of questions about you. He wanted to know if he could pay you to go to a party.”

Cavallari recalled that one day she saw him at the fitness studio “wandering around” in a suit, so she tried to avoid him by going to the bathroom to kill time and leaving via another exit.

“He’s standing at the entrance on his phone and I’m like, ‘Goddamnit,’” the “Very Cavallari” star told her co-host Justin Anderson on the podcast.

Cavallari shared that once she got into her car, she noticed Berkowitz got into the one right next to her.

He then allegedly followed her to a stoplight, and asked her to “roll [her] window down.”

“He goes, ‘You have a flat tire,’ and I go, ‘What?’” Cavallari recounted. “Then my flat tire thing went on, so he knew I had a flat tire before my car knew I had a flat tire.”

She pulled around to a bank parking lot and the stalker was allegedly still circling around the area.

Cavallari said she was around 26 and living in Chicago with her then-husband Jay Cutler at the time.

“I called my ex-husband, who called a private investigator who worked for the Bears. It was like a whole thing,” she explained.

According to Cavallari, Berkowitz ultimately “admitted” to giving her a flat tire.

“He was married with kids, begged not to file a restraining order,” she added. “I was, like, ‘No, f–k you. You were stalking me at my gym and you gave me a flat tire to what? Save the day?’”

Cavallari concluded that the obsessed fan was a “psycho f–k,” adding, “So, people are crazy, man. You have to be careful.”

Per NBC in Chicago, Cavallari was granted an extended order of protection against Berkowitz in 2015.

The “Hills” alum said in a courtroom following the ruling, “I want him to stay away from me and my family.”

Cavallari is one of many celebs to have been a victim of stalking. Nickelodeon alum Miranda Cosgrove recently revealed a man who had been following her once lit himself on fire and shot himself in her yard.

“That’s another reason why I go back and forth to my parents’ house so much,” the former “iCarly” star told Bustle last week. “I just don’t feel super safe in that house.”
