Rihanna was forced to call the cops at her home in Barbados on Sunday (December 23, 2012) after a man trespassed onto the property. Barbados Police confirm that they received a call after a man believed to be a German national wandered onto the private beachfront estate.

Though it is assumed the man intended no harm to the superstar singer, the incident clearly unnerved Rihanna and she waited anxiously while police arrived. By the time authorities conducted a sweep of the property, the man had made a hasty retreat though was later snapped on the beach by TMZ.com. Police say they do not believe the man is a stalker, though they want to have a chat with him to determine his reasoning for trespassing on the lavish estate. 

The Sun newspaper presented a very different version of events, claiming the man got within 10ft of Rihanna before she spotted him. A witness said, "The guy got to within about 10 to 12ft of where Rihanna was sitting before he was apprehended by security.He looked fairly harmless but it was a little too close for comfort." 

2012 has been the year of the trespasser, with Miley Cyrus, Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian and Usher all having been victims to unwanted strangers wandering onto their estates.
