Paris Jackson can now breathe a sigh of relief as an alleged stalker who had been causing her distress has been arrested

The 25-year-old model is the sole daughter of the late Michael Jackson and his former spouse, Debbie Rowe, 64.

In early September, law enforcement was summoned to Paris' residence in the Los Angeles area when the suspect made an unwelcome appearance, as reported by TMZ. At the time, security personnel on duty kept a close watch on the intruder until the police arrived.

The individual in question, identified as 37-year-old Ruben Palenco, was apprehended and transported to the county jail, where he has been in custody ever since. His bail has been set at $20,000.

Palenco currently faces four misdemeanor charges, including stalking and prowling. The LAPD Threat Management Team is actively investigating his actions.

According to investigators, Palenco was found on Paris' property on New Year's Day. He had reportedly been spotted there twice in August prior to his arrest on September 4.

In the interim, Paris has been in her eponymous city for Fashion Week.
