A man has been charged with stalking Rihanna after allegedly breaking into the superstar’s Hollywood Hills mansion because he ‘just wanted to have sex with her’.
Eduardo Leon, 27, has been charged with one felony count each of stalking, first-degree residential burglary and vandalism, and one misdemeanour count of resisting arrest.
Leon, from Fullerton, California, is accused of jumping a fence and entering a house owned by Rihanna, who was not home at the time of the alleged incident on May 9.
TMZ previously reported that he’d told cops he was in the house to have sex with Rihanna – and added that he planned not to use force on her.
They claimed he had unpacked his bag and even charged his mobile.
The website also said Leon had previously broken into another home the week before after mistakenly thinking it was one of Rihanna’s properties.
If convicted, Leon faces a possible maximum sentence of six years in state prison.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said: “On May 9, Leon is accused of hopping a fence and entering a house owned by Rihanna, who was not home at the time.
“The defendant spent about 12 hours inside the home and was arrested the next day after being discovered by the singer’s assistant.
“If convicted as charged, Leon faces a possible maximum sentence of six years in state prison.
“The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.”
