Los Angeles, CA – Police have reportedly gained access to the social media accounts of Rihanna’s alleged stalker, Eduardo Leon. According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, police were granted a warrant to look for evidence to use in Leon’s felony stalking case.
Leon allegedly broke into Rihanna’s Los Angeles-area home last month and told officers he was there to “have sex” with the Barbadian pop star, although he reportedly assured police he didn’t plan on using “force.” Leon was tased and arrested, and has remained in jail since May 10.
By looking into his social media accounts, cops are hoping to prove Leon was obsessed with RiRi.
Leon’s court hearing is reportedly on hold until a judge decides if he’s mentally fit to stand trial.
He’s facing three felony charges for stalking, burglary and vandalism.

A man who broke into Rihanna’s Los Angeles home on Wednesday (May 9) was reportedly tased and arrested on Thursday (May 10).
According to TMZ, 26-year-old Eduardo Leon told police he was there to have sex with the Barbadian superstar but didn’t plan to use force to get his way.
