Bajan police play down intrusion on Rihanna’s property

(Barbados Nation) Did a German gatecrasher cause Barbadian superstar Rihanna to leave Barbados on Christmas Eve?
According to the British tabloid The Daily Mail, Rihanna beat a hasty retreat from the island following a “confrontation” with a German man  who wandered onto the  St James property  where she was staying.

“Rihanna’s idyllic paradise getaway with family and friends was ruined when a man identified as a German national gatecrashed her relaxing party. The male fan allegedly attempted to make his way inside the star’s house as she spent her day with friends,”  the paper said.

It quoted website TMZ as reporting that the man, who was wearing nothing but a pair of swimming trunks, was quickly ushered away by Rihanna’s security team after making his way  into the property.
However, the Royal Barbados Police Force said last night there was no actual confrontation and the matter was not a cause for any alarm.

“We responded to a report made by her security team where it was reported a man had wandered onto the property where we were told Rihanna was staying and had left.

“From our investigations, no one  was harmed or in direct danger,” Inspector David Welch, police public relations officer, told the DAILY NATION.
