Man arrested for stalking Rihanna

2014-07-27 16:13

Los Angeles - A homeless man has been arrested for stalking Rihanna.

Kevin McGlynn, 53, was taken into custody on Thursday after leaving threatening notes at the star's rented New York home.

The New York Post's Page Six reports he was charged with stalking, menacing and harassment and held without bail after writing a string of insulting notes and delivering them twice on 8 July and once on 1 July.

Rihanna was forced to put her own sprawling estate in Pacific Palisades, California, on the market in May after owning it for just over a year.

The Stay hitmaker was put off living at the house, as stalkers kept showing up unannounced.

The singer secured a three-year restraining order against Steveland Barrow in March 2013, after he broke into the property next door, which he wrongly believed to be her home.

A judge also ordered Robert Melanson to stay at least 100 yards away from the Umbrella singer's house and, or, place of business, after the 26-year-old male trespasser was caught creeping around on her roof last June.

In court documents, Rihanna, who was not at home at the time of either incident, wrote she feared for her safety because Robert was unstable and had a criminal history.
