Man charged with stalking and burglarising Rihanna


Los Angeles — Authorities say a man who broke into Rihanna's Hollywood Hills home and spent 12 hours there has been charged with stalking the singer, who was not at home at the time.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say 26-year-old Eduardo Leon of Fullerton was charged on Monday with felony counts of stalking, burglary and vandalism, and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.

He appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

Leon is accused of climbing over a fence and breaking into the house on 9 May. Authorities say Rihanna's assistant found him and called police.
