According to TMZ, a Rihanna fan recently tried to get close to her in several very illegal ways. Police sources says cops were called to her home in Los Angeles yesterday morning after being alerted by her assistant to a potential intruder that may have tampered with her security system. Once there, they found 26-year-old Eduardo Leon, who had apparently stayed the whole night. Eduardo was asked to leave the house, and he was tased by police while being detained (TMZ isn’t sure why there were tasers involved). It’s not known how he got in to Rihanna’s house, or if he tried to take anything while he was inside.
Rihanna wasn’t home at the time of the break in, as she was in Brooklyn for the launch of her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty.
So what was Eduardo doing in Rihanna’s house to begin with? Was he going grey waiting online for hours to buy some Savage x Fenty undies and figured it would just be faster if he picked them up from her house? That would be the less-upsetting version of this story. According to TMZ, Eduardo told police he was there to have sex with Rihanna. Although he stresses his plan wasn’t to use force, as if that makes this any better. Police say he disabled the alarm system, and made himself comfortable inside by unpacking his bag and charging his phone. They believe he was there for an entire day.
After being arrested, Rihanna’s uninvited houseguest was booked for residential burglary, trespassing, and felony stalking. Stalking, because apparently this isn’t the first time he’s tried to break into Rihanna’s home. Police sources tell TMZ that on May 4th, Eduardo broke into another home, thinking it was Rihanna’s. He’s currently being held on $150,000 bail.
Normally I don’t need to know the name of a creep who broke into Rihanna’s house in an attempt to force some kind of twisted love fantasy, but it’s good we know this time. If they hadn’t released the name, I’m sure we all would have immediately glanced in the direction of Rihanna’s former clinger Drake and thought, “Um, she made it pretty clear she didn’t want to be your friend anymore, buddy.” And he would have tearfully responded, “I know that! And I really wish I knew that before I knew how easy it was to disable the alarm system.”
