Rihanna's Stalker Threatened Her With a Gun on Social Media

Rihanna's alleged stalker is a wanted man. New reports state that the online troll is being tracked by police after threatening the Bajan pop star with a gun on social media.

According to TMZ, law enforcement sources report that the LAPD is monitoring the records of an individual who goes by the names Alex Mercer and Ralph Alexander on Twitter and Yahoo. His odd obsession with the "What Now" singer apparently doesn't stop on the Internet. He allegedly posted a selfie outside of RiRi's former home on April 30.


The day following the creepy post, he tweeted, "Should of killed @rihanna a minute back I would be good right now. Sorcery is a weapon I use guns, bout to get a gun license, can't use my hands."

After the officials were notified of his tweet, they visited the residence, but by the time they arrived, he was already gone. They haven't given up, though. They're now tracking him down through technology and are closely monitoring all of his social media accounts.

This isn't the first time that the 27-year-old has been harassed by a stalker. Back in 2013 she was being bothered by Kevin McGlynn, who was arrested after hand-delivering letters to Rihanna's New York City apartment. In them, he brutally threatened her, calling her a "b***h" and threatening to gang rape her. McGlynn also claimed that he and RiRi were in a relationship and that she stole his music. He was found unfit to stand trial in 2014 and was committed to a psychiatric hospital.
