Travis Reinking, Waffle House Shooting Suspect, Once Believed Taylor Swift Was Stalking Him

Travis Reinking is a wanted man.

And, by many recent accounts, Travis Reinking is also a mentally troubled man.

The 29-year old is the main suspect in a horrific shooting that took place late last week, one in which Reinking allegedly opened fire with an AR-15 and killed four people at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee.

Many others at the scene were wounded in the attack and transported to a local hospital.

In a Tweet Monday, the Metro Nashville Police Department said the following about this incident and this search:

“MNPD officers, to include SWAT, have continued the search for Travis Reinking in the Antioch area overnight. There have been no credible sightings. The search will continue.

“All schools in the area have been cleared by officers. He was last seen Sun morn behind his apt complex.”

While all able bodies in the area are looking for Travis Reinking, a disturbing profile of the man has emerged online.

It has quite the unusual and spotted history.

In July of 2017, he breached a White House security barrier and said he wanted to meet President Donald Trump.

Reinking told a Secret Service officer at the time that he was “sovereign citizen” who had a “right to inspect the grounds,” according to a Metropolitan Police Department incident report dated July 7.

Prior to this bizarre trespassing incident, documents obtained by CNN from the sheriff’s office in Tazewell County, Illinois indicate that Reinking was once described by police as exhibiting “delusional” behavior.

“Travis is hostile toward police and does not recognize police authority. Travis also possesses several firearms,” an officer wrote in a May 2016 incident report.

This report was penned because Reinking’s parents had called emergency services to say their son though Taylor Swift was stalking him, and he had made comments about killing himself.

Wait…what was that about Taylor Swift?!?

On May 27, 2016, a Tazewell County Sheriff’s deputy met Reinking and his parents in a drug store parking lot after the latter pair had phoned for assistance, according to authorities.

A paramedic told the responding officer that Reinking believed that Swift was harassing him by stalking and hacking his phone.

This is what an office at the time wrote:

“Travis believed everyone including his own family and the police are involved. Travis stated he did not want to hurt Taylor Swift or anyone else, he only wanted the harassment to stop.”

Reinking was candid about what he believed to be taking place.

He told the cop that the harassment started a few weeks earlier when Swift hacked his Netflix account and told him to meet her at a Dairy Queen.

He then told the officer that when he showed up… she ran off and vanished.

It would be very easy to laugh or scoff at this claim.

But it’s far harder to do so when you consider that Reinking just reportedly killed four people with a machine gun he likely purchased legally.

About a year after this incident, police were called to deal with Reinking again after someone said he came out of his apartment wearing a dress and holding a rifle.

Shortly after Reinking spoke to police about Swift, a group of policemen convinced him to check into a hospital for a mental evaluation.

But it’s unclear what came of this.

“At this point, the young man could be anywhere and whether he might try to return home is a distinct possibility, so our officers are definitely on alert,” Tazewell County Sheriff Robert Huston said Sunday in a news conference.

We’ll keep readers updated on this situation as more news breaks.

Kris Jenner: I’m Stalking Blac Chyna!

Kris Jenner started raising children long before “helicopter parenting” was a common expression, so in a sense, she’s a real trailblazer.

Kris was controlling every aspect of her kids’ lives before it was popular, and she’s showing no signs of letting up now that they’re adults.

Obviously, Kris still micro-manages every aspect of her kids’ careers, but her influence doesn’t stop at sex tapes and Fit Tea endorsement deals.

No, Kris is very much involved in her kids’ personal lives, too, and these days that means attending to main responsibilities:

Seeing that Kylie’s pregnancy goes smoothly, and keeping up her lifelong efforts to ensure Rob doesn’t completely go off the rails.

As you’ve probably heard, Rob’s breakup with Blac Chyna wasn’t exactly an amicable affair.

And by that, we mean Rob posted nude photos of Chyna without her consent and stalked and harassed her to the point that she was forced to file for a restraining order.

You’d think the fact that Chyna has taken legal action to distance herself from the Kards would send a message that the whole family should just back off.

Unfortunately, Kris and company are too pissed off to take the hint, likely as a result of the fact that Blac is suing the entire Kardashian family, while simultaneously fighting for sole custody of daughter Dream.

So the fact that Kris has allegedly hired a private investigator to tail Chyna and offer reports on her behavior really doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

“They want vengeance not because Chyna hurt Rob but because she insulted the family and dragged their name through the mud,” a source close to the situation tells Star magazine.

“They’ve got the inside track of what Chyna’s doing 24/7 and won’t rest until they see Chyna go down in flames,” the insider adds.

It may seem excessive, but the thing is, it’s not enough for the Kards to beat Chyna in court.

As it is, their victory is pretty much guaranteed.

(Let’s not forget that this is the family that first rose to prominence for its role in getting freakin’ OJ acquitted. They know good lawyers.)

No, Kris’ goal at this point is to keep this thing from ever going to trial.

She’s got Blac in the position where if she does anything remotely embarrassing in the next few months, she’ll leave herself vulnerable to being blackmailed.

And this, folks, is one of the many reasons you don’t mess with Mama Kris.
