In absolutely horrifying things about being a celebrity: Rihanna's Los Angeles home was reportedly broken into Wednesday and the guy spent the night and then had to be tased in order to leave.

According to TMZ, the man in question is 26-year-old Eduardo Leon of Orange County, who was arrested for felony stalking and is currently being held on $150,000 bail.

Per TMZ:

                "Law enforcement sources tell us authorities were dispatched to RiRi's L.A.-area
                home Thursday morning after they were notified of a potential intruder on
                suspicion that her alarm had been tampered with. Once officers arrived, they
                came upon a man who appeared to have stayed the night."

It's unclear why officers had to tase the suspect, who reportedly came out of the house willingly when asked. It's also unclear how he got into the house and if he intended to take anything from the premises before being caught.

Thankfully, Rihanna was not home during the break-in. She was in New York City earlier this week for the Met Gala, which she co-hosted, and today her Savage x Fenty lingerie line launched. The singer joins a growing list of celebrities who have been victims of particularly invasive break-ins of late. In April, a 22-year-old man named Roger Alvarado broke into Taylor Swift's New York City townhouse and reportedly took a shower before sleeping in the singer's bed.

Alvarado, originally from Homestead, Fla., was arrested after the incident and reportedly charged with felony stalking, burglary, criminal mischief, and criminal trespass. It was the second time Alvarado has been caught breaking into the property, which Swift was (thankfully) not living in at the time of either incident.
