Rihanna and Jhené Aiko have both been targeted by car thieves in Los Angeles just days apart.
According to TMZ, RiRi’s L.A.-area home was the scene of a car theft last week when her driver’s vehicle ended up getting stolen.
Law enforcement said the culprit took off with the driver’s 2012 Audi sedan after he pulled up to Rihanna’s California abode and went inside to grab something.
The driver left his keys in the vehicle with the engine running, but when he came back outside, it was nowhere to be seen. The LAPD is currently investigating the incident, but it appears the suspect made a clean escape.
Fellow R&B star Jhené Aiko, meanwhile, had her 2020 Range Rover pinched while she was out for dinner at Tasty Noodle House in L.A. on March 18.
TMZ reports the Souled Out singer left her car at around 8:30 p.m. after giving the keys to a valet.
Around 30 minutes later, Aiko saw someone driving away in her luxury SUV. She assumed the valet staff were just moving the vehicle, but it was never returned.
For Rihanna, the car theft comes shortly after another hairy scene at her home when a random man showed up at her doorstep to propose to her earlier this month.
Sources said the intruder traveled from South Carolina and walked up to her home, but was greeted by security. The cops were then called and he was put in handcuffs before being questioned about his intentions. He was later let go after officers determined he technically had not broken any laws.
That hasn’t stopped Rihanna from embracing her adoring fans while out in public, though. Earlier this month, the Bajan billionaire took time out to speak to fans and pose for photos while grocery shopping in L.A.
“My God I don’t even know where to start… I met RIHANNA today,” one fan wrote in an Instagram post documenting the once-in-a-lifetime encounter. “I had such a genuine long conversation with her; I almost forgot to take a photo.”
She added: “I can’t wait to interview you @badgalriri one of these days. Our convo & your kindness lives rent free in my mind FOREVER EVER , thank you for being so down to earth ily!”
