Eduardo Leon Arrested in Rihanna’s Hollywood Home Robbery Case

Rihanna’s lavish Hollywood Hills mansion was allegedly turned into a nightlong lodge by perpetrator Eduardo Leon on Thursday (May 10). Officials were alerted about a possible break-in when the nine-time Grammy winner was not at home.

While Rihanna was busy with the MET Gala and the launch of her Savage x Fenty Lingerie collection, her home was reportedly broken into. Eduardo Leon, who is from Orange County, was booked for staying the night at the pop star’s home. Police claim he wanted to have consensual sex with the singer.

Who Broke into Rihanna’s Mansion?

Officials who responded to a call about a possible break-in said that they later discovered Leon had meddled with the alarm system. Once inside, he reportedly unpacked a bag and charged his cellphone. According to reports, it was Rihanna’s assistant who found him inside, calmly unpacking his bag and charging his cell phone.

The 7,130 sq.ft. mansion was purchased by the songstress for $6.8 million in 2017. The state of the art home has a guest house, infinity pool, sunset views, ample driveway space, and is completely gated for security.

For 26-year-old Eduardo Leon, breaking into the home was not difficult. When police arrived on the premises, they found the suspect inside. He reportedly looked as though he stayed the night.

Police called him outside the property where he reportedly told police he wanted to have sex with Rihanna, adding that he did not plan to use force on her. Though he complied with officers, Leon was tasered while being arrested. Details of why are unknown.

At this time, all that is known about Leon is that he is an alleged avid stalker, as he allegedly broke into another home on May 4, believing it belonged to Rihanna. He was booked to Hollywood Division Jail for trespassing and residential burglary, though officials have yet to reveal what, if anything, was stolen from the property.

Leon is being held on a $150,000 bond. Rihanna, whose estimated net worth is $245.0 million, has yet to comment on the incident.
