Grammy-winning singer Rihanna narrowly avoided a man trying to get an up-close look at the Barbados beauty after trespassing onto her property and climbing on her roof this week.
According to reports, a 26-year-old man had his week cut short after getting busted at RiRi’s crib.
A man was charged on Tuesday with trespassing at the home of Grammy-winning singer Rihanna. Robert Melanson, 26, was taken into custody Monday night after private security guards spotted him on the roof of Rihanna’s Pacific Palisades home, according to arresting officers. The guards held Melanson until officers arrived. Rihanna was not at home at the time of the incident, police said. (KTLA News)
RiRi has experienced numerous similar incidents throughout this year.
Monday was just the most recent in a series of incidents that have drawn the LAPD to the singer’s home. In April, a caller reported gunshots inside the house. In February, a man pleaded guilty to breaking into Rihanna’s home and sleeping in a bed he thought was hers. (Los Angeles Times)
The singer is reportedly sleeping alone these days as ex-boyfriend Chris Brown announced their quiet break-up a few weeks ago.
Those who wondered if something was up with Chris Brown and Rihanna after she was unable to join him on his May 5 birthday might have been right! In a new interview with the Australian radio station 2DayFM, Chris admitted that he was split from RiRi and flying solo. “I’mma do it solo,” Chris told the Aussie DJ. The R&B singer seems to intimate that his and Rihanna’s schedules unfortunately got in the way of their relationship, and that her inability to make it to his birthday celebrations may have been a factor too: “I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her own thing, she on the road. It’s always gonna be love. I’m a grown man, just gotta move forward.” Though Chris said he is “always gonna love” Rihanna, he talked about how he’s more focused on himself right now. “People have differences and people have different wants and needs,” he says. “At the end of the day she’s a young girl. I can’t be focused on wife-ing somebody that young… and I’m young too.” (Hollywood Life)
In early spring, the singer found herself attached to various pregnancy gossip.
Rihanna came out of a medical building in Bev Hills Tuesday … and said she’s doing a lot better, but it’s done nothing to stop the pregnancy talk. Rihanna has cancelled 4 concert dates on her Diamonds World Tour … which kicked off on March 8. Sources connected to the singer told TMZ in early March she was suffering from a throat infection. Thing is … it’s been more than a month now and there are clearly still issues. Because the info coming from Rihanna’s camp has been sketchy … there have been a slew of tabloid stories speculating that she’s pregnant. (TMZ)
