Authorities receive a burglary related call at Rihanna's Hollywood Hills mansion for the second time in this month
Singer Rihanna's Hollywood Hills mansion was swarmed by police for the second time this month as they responded to her burglary alarm going off on Tuesday night. It is unclear whether the 'diamonds' singer was at the mansion at the time of the incident.
As reported by ABC7, the authorities got a burglary call about a house located in Hollywood Hills at around 9.30 pm. No other details have been released as of now. "It appeared an alarm was sounding and lights were flashing as officers checked the home," ABC reported. Earlier in August, the authorities responded to the same Hollywood Hills home after the alarm system went off.
The police shared with TMZ that they dispatched units to the LA home once the alarm was activated by accident. According to insiders, Rihanna was not present at the time though the police responded to the call with a lot of muscle and presence given RiRi's problems with break-ins. Last May, the police arrested a man called Eduardo Leon who was charged with many felonies which include stalking, vandalism, and burglary when he trespassed into the home and also spent a day staying there.
Leon reportedly told the authorities that he intended to sleep with Rihanna but not without her consent. In the year 2015, authorities nabbed a man who had sent the 'Umbrella' singer death threats and also took a bunch of selfies at her home. In the year 2014, the police arrested a New York man who was reportedly linked with allegations claiming that he showed up at her SoHo home and delivered notes calling her a "B****". He also sent multiple letters to her LA home.
In the year 2013, Rihanna's Pacific Palisades home was targetted as part of a swatting prank which led to officers going to her home. As reported by the Los Angeles Times, the prankster had reported saying that a shooting had occurred on the property. Many other celebrities including the likes of Miley Cyrus, Simon Cowell, and Justin Bieber were also targetted with the prank.
Recently, Rihanna was named as the ambassador of Barbados after she was given the task of promoting investment and tourism. The Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said that Rihanna was given the title of ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary. Rihanna released a statement which read, "I couldn´t be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I´m ready and excited to take on the responsibility".
Thirty-year-old Riri did not have an easy childhood growing up and had a troubled home in Barbados. She and her career were launched to fame once US producer Evan Rogers saw her talents. The singer has mostly been based out of Los Angeles and New York and landed 14 number-one singles on the US Billboard charts which is more than any artist except The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Mariah Carey.
