Rihanna Gets 3 Year Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

Published

on

Rihanna just got a new reason to make a stalker “Stay”….away that is.

Yesterday, the Barbadian pop star was granted a 3 year restraining order from Steveland Barrow, a crazy stalker who was arrested for breaking into her home last month.  Upon arrest, Barrow claimed he’d been “invited” by Rihanna, and was simply delivering some poetry….as he slept in one of her beds. (Riiight.)

The restraining order maintains that Barrow must stay at least 100 yards away from the “Only Girl in [his] World,” until the year 2016.

Rihanna requested the restraining order after suffering “substantial emotional distress and concern for her personal safety” due to the break in.  Thankfully, the pop star can now rest easy as she completes the rest of her international Diamonds tour, without worrying about a stalker shacking up in her guest rooms.

As a sidenote, this isn’t Rihanna’s first experience with a restraining order.  She obtained her first restraining order back in 2009 against, her then-ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown.  The judge lifted the restraining order in 2011, and less then 2 years later, the couple publicly reconciled.

So take heart, crazy-stalker-fan Steveland Barrow – there may be hope for you still.

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
