The model claimed Velazquez threatened her over Instagram multiple times and even showed up in person outside of her home.

Velazquez reportedly sent Maxwell messages saying, “I’m thinking of burning your house” and “We are going to f**k Stella.” Maxwell claimed the messages continued saying, “I will find you” and “I [will] leave you in a wheelchair.”

One message she reportedly received from him said, “I’m going to be a serial killer.”

The man also allegedly sent Maxwell photos of her own house. The photos seemed to have been taken by Velazquez himself. (RELATED: Check Out The Best Photos Of Stella Maxwell)
