Rihanna can’t shake the nutjobs. After a homeless man stalked and threatened her last year, she has now picked up another hanger-on who is making threats against the singer.
A man who goes by the names Alex Mercer on Twitter and Ralph Alexander on Yahoo is being raked over by the LAPD. Cops are checking his phone, his computer and social media accounts after he posted a pic outside of Rihanna’s former home and threatened her life.
The suspect posted to Twitter:
“Should of killed @rihanna a minute back I would be good right now. Sorcery is a weapon I use guns, bout to get a gun license, can’t use my hands”
This guy may not be the brightest bulb in the box, considering he posted his intent to Twitter. But he is not alone in his dimness.
Last year, Rihanna dealt with homeless man Kevin McGlynn. That guy stalked her and threatened to force his way into her home. Police caught him after he accidentally dropped his food stamp card with his name on it in her building.
McGlynn sent at least four letters to Rihanna at her former California address.
“The nature of these letters (is) confusing,” the Assistant District Attorney told a judge. “They all do indicate a personal relationship, as I indicated before, that simply does not exist.”
When he was arraigned, McGlynn claimed that Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Kanye West has ripped off “my material.” According to court documents McGlynn “repeatedly called her a bitch,” and threatened to “bum (rush) in her apartment.”
Rihanna joins Gigi Hadid in having trouble with threatening stalkers this month. Hadid is selling her SoHo apartment to get away from the trouble.
