EXCLUSIVE: Texan Kenyon Glover is under fire for accusations of sexual misconduct in Louisiana.
In court documents obtained by The Texas Mail, we can report that Kenyon Glover is the subject of a court-certified protective order prohibiting him from having any contact with a woman who has levied sexual violence claims against him.
The sexual assault protection order out of Shreveport, Louisiana, was mandated by 1st Judicial District Judge Michael Pitman, a former district attorney in the Caddo Parish jurisdiction. The intention of the judge’s order is to prevent abuse and to enhance safety for the person under court-ordered protection.
While many Americans may have recognized Glover on their television screens years ago, Glover has in recent time been traveling to varied places as a motivational speaker, according to his social channels. Per IMDb, the authoritative entertainment website, Glover’s past TV experiences include appearances on The Young and The Restless and Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
Glover played professional basketball with the Milwaukee Bucks franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA). During his short stint with the Bucks, the athlete suffered an injury that ended his NBA career.
Glover is facing yet another career setback, this time off the court, with disturbing claims of sexual abuse, while having to be restrained by a judge in an order to protect his accuser.
Glover’s high profile image was no match for judge Michael “Mike” Pitman, who built his reputation in Southeastern Louisiana prosecuting high profile felonies while working for Caddo and Bossier Parish District Attorney offices.
As an official legal intervention, Pitman, a former Louisiana State University (LSU) law professor, has ordered Glover to refrain from abusing, harassing, assaulting, stalking, following, tracking, monitoring or interfering with the person or going near her residence or place of employment.
The prohibition includes the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force that would reasonably be expected to cause bodily injury. Glover is also ordered not to contact family members or acquaintances of the protected person.
Glover, as the alleged abuser, is barred from going within 100 yards of the protected party. The court document states that the order shall be enforced, even without registration, and presumed valid and enforceable in all 50 states, The District of Columbia, Tribal Lands, U.S. Territories, and Commonwealths.
The judge granted the order as an immediate need for protection for the threatened person. The court order has put in place strict rules that must be followed by Glover.
The court record states that the order of protection was issued under The Louisiana Uniform Abuse Prevention Order pursuant to L.R.S. 46:2181 et seq., non-intimate sexual assault, stating that the protected person is related to the defendant as an acquaintance. The Texas Mail does not identify the victims of sexual crimes.
Public accounts that appear to be owned and operated by Glover suggest the filmmaker is located in Los Angeles, California or Hollywood. The court records establish Glover’s residence as living in Dallas, Texas.
The court records we obtained bear witness that Glover was served by the Caddo Parish Clerk of Court at his place of employment listed as PickUp USA Fitness in Coppell.
A snippet of the allegations were posted on Shreveport Patch, and it’s since become widespread news surrounding the entertainer. Users on various sites have re-posted, shared, and made comments regarding the claims against the filmmaker.
Glover has yet to publicly comment on the viral nature of the accusations, but the public figure has defended himself against critics for years. Throughout the years, on his social pages, the Louisiana native has routinely posted content about his “haters” meanwhile adamantly pressing forward in the limelight professing that he is “God’s Soldier.”
Glover’s controversial online posts have also been the subject of criticism. He has come under fire previously for posting what some have deemed was “inappropriate” content. The 45-year-old minister has defended sexuality in online photos of himself by claiming he is a model – Glover has appeared in Essence as a model of the week – and attributing “sexiness” to fitness, as a brand ambassador to Fitness Beats Depression.
According to his social media, Glover founded a Christian focused company several years ago entitled Faithful & Focused Ministries, whereby he uses his ministry to “inspire” people around the world.
In a December 2022 interview with Voyage Dallas, Glover states that “after an unsuccessful suicide attempt” he “landed in the world of entertainment.” Glover goes on to say “I started doing modeling and eventually transitioned to acting which later led to producing and directing film and television.” Glover states that I have been very successful since that transition happened in 2006 which has afforded close to 80 film and television acting credits and over 10 projects that I have produced or directed.”
Glover has also claimed authority over multiple companies throughout his expansive social media reach. The companies referenced online include, but not limited to, Kenyon Glover Enterprises, KG Enterprises, KG Entertainment Group, KG Films Production and Kenyon Glover Films.
The Texas Mail discovered Tuesday through Texas Comptroller Glenn Hagar’s office and Texas Secretary of State Jane Nelson’s office that no Texas records or taxable entities exist for Kenyon Glover; Kenyon Glover Enterprises, KG Enterprises, KG Entertainment Group, Fitness Beats Depression, Faithful & Focused Ministries, KG Films Production or Kenyon Glover Films.
The latter company is listed on Glover’s IMDbPro, an Amazon-owned, subscription based network with exclusive insights into the entertainment world of agents, managers, filmmakers and powerbrokers. All referenced Glover companies are reportedly associated with his online persona, however, we could find no record of his businesses in Texas, where local law enforcement agencies say he resides.
Glover was put on notice with respect to any violation of the court order. Per the court ruling, and pursuant to LA. R.S. 14:79, the judge warned Glover if he violates the court order he may be arrested, jailed, prosecuted, fined, or all, and may be further punished under criminal laws of the state of Louisiana. The judge ordered law enforcement, Pursuant to La. R.S. 14:79, to use every reasonable means, including but not limited to immediate arrest of the violator, to enforce the order.
The Texas Mail attempted to reach Glover’s representatives for a comment about the accusations and legal case, but was unable to reach them.
