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 July 8 and once on July 1.
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.
Charlie Sheen has blasted Rihanna for declining to meet his fiancee.
The Anger Management star took his ex-porn star partner Brett Rossi - who now goes by her birth name, Scottine - out to dinner at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica last night to celebrate her 26th birthday. However, he was not amused when Rihanna - who was also dining at the same eatery - refused to come over and meet them.
January Jones wants to sleep with Rihanna.
The Mad Men actress - who has never revealed the identity of the father of her two-year-old son Xander - has a crush on the "Diamonds" singer, and also legendary late actor Paul Newman, who died in 2008 aged 82.
When asked by online magazine Violet Grey whom she would "most want to go to bed with, dead or alive," she replied, "Paul Newman or Rihanna."
January - who posed nude for a series of raunchy photographs for the publication - admitted she likes to be "mysterious" but also wants to "shock" people and allow them to form opinions of her based on her actions: "I prefer to remain mysterious and have people make their own judgment calls about me than to always have to explain who I am and what I'm about. I try to take risks and shock people a little bit, it's important to provoke some sort of emotion, negative or positive."
Drake has banned Rihanna from speaking to her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
The "Hold On, We're Going Home" rapper has reportedly told his beau he'll only make their relationship official if she agrees to cut all ties with the 24-year-old singer. "Rihanna and Drake are just having fun at the moment. Neither of them are relationship people really. But Drake has made it clear that if things are going to get serious with them, he doesn't want her speaking with Chris. They are never going to get along properly," a source said.
Despite their turbulent past, Rihanna, 26, has never been able to stop complete contact with Chris, who left her bloodied and bruised when he physically assaulted her during an altercation in 2009.
Rihanna and Chris Brown "haven't stopped" texting since her birthday.
The "Diamonds" singer - who was recently seen partying with another former boyfriend, Drake, in Paris - has reportedly caused friends to "freak out" as they are concerned she is planning to renew her romance with the "Yeah 3x" hitmaker, even though she initially snubbed his messages.
"Chris started texting Rihanna on her birthday, February 20, and the two have been sending each other a flurry of texts ever since. Rihanna didn't write back right away but later that night she started getting sentimental and texted back, 'thank you,' and asked how he was. Since then, the two haven't stopped texting each other and friends are freaked out that she's going to start dating him again," a source said.
Rihanna has been partying in Paris with Drake.
The "Pour It Up" singer fueled rumors she was back with her ex by joining him at Soixante Dix Neuf nightclub in the French capital, where Drake was making a personal appearance for the venue's first anniversary on Monday night. The Bajan beauty - who had a brief fling with the rapper in 2009 in the wake of her split from on/off beau Chris Brown - sipped on cocktails made with Belvedere Vodka and watched as Drake took to the DJ booth.
"She didn't want to be seen at all. She kept her head down and charged through to the back of the club with her friends. They had a private space and stayed there most of the time. Drake looked very tired, but was smiling around Rihanna. They chatted, danced a little, and seemed close," a source said.
Rihanna and Drake left a nightclub together on Friday night.
The former couple fueled speculation they have rekindled their relationship after they were spotted getting into the same taxi outside Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood. The duo, who collaborated on the track "What's My Name" in 2010, tried to keep the fact they were together under-wraps as they left the club separately.
The 25-year-old beauty left first before the 27-year-old rapper followed her out and got into her waiting taxi seconds later, according to the MailOnline website.
An insider recently told HollywoodLife.com that the "Stay" hitmaker began seeing Drake again late last year but they aren't ready to have a "committed" relationship. "They're doing what they do on the low, and they like to keep it that way. They fill each other's needs when they can, and that's how they're choosing to roll," a source said.
Rihanna and Drake reportedly spent the night together after an intimate dinner.
The pair were spotted cuddling up together during a late-evening meal before heading back to the Bajan beauty's hotel after the rapper watched the "Pour It Up" singer perform in Dallas,Texas on Monday night.
Rihanna, 25, previously dated the "Hold On, We're Going Home" hitmaker during her on-off relationship with Chris Brown - which famously resulted in a club brawl between the rapper and the "Fine China" singer - and sources believe the rendezvous could reignite their romance. "Let's just say it's easier for a [girl] to go to familiar territory than it is for her to get out there and [be with someone] new," an insider said.
While the duo reportedly enjoyed one night of passion together, neither Drake, 26, or Rihanna are ready to jump into a relationship just yet. "You've got to remember, Rihanna has done a lot of growing and Drake's a real [guy] so there's not really any expectations that come with what they did. They're both adults and can compartmentalize things," the source revealed.
Rihanna is furious that Chris Brown is putting a duet with her on his upcoming album.
The "Fine China" hitmaker was originally planning to axe the track, "Put It Up," from his new album, X after he and the "Stay" singer ended their on/off relationship for good earlier this year, but announced on Twitter this week that his ex-girlfriend, 25, will definitely be making an appearance on the record.
The 24-year-old star, who is still on probation for beating Rihanna in 2009, wrote on Thursday, "New album features @NICKIMINAJ, Kendrick, @rihanna, @KELLYROWLAND, @wizkhalifa, @bobatl and more surprises to come. 'X'"
Rihanna appeared to be less than impressed by his decision to release their track, recorded when they were still together, tweeting shortly after his announcement, "Phuck O.utta H.ere B.***h." She also posted a photo on Instagram featuring the words, "B***h you will die, be born again, die and be born again before I ever do a song with you b***h."
Drake wants nothing to do with Chris Brown ever again. The rapper is still fuming over his New York City club bust-up with the R&B singer last June, during which several people were injured after note passing about mutual flame Rihanna turned into a bottle-throwing brawl between the two love rivals and their respective entourages.
One year on, Drake has spoken openly about the W.i.P nightclub incident for the first time, insisting he will never patch things up with the "Don't Wake Me Up" hitmaker. Referring to Chris' on/off relationships with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, Drake told America's GQ magazine, "I hear he has everything he could want now. I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name. I really don't. I wish we could sit down ... and talk it out man-to-man. But that's not going to happen."
