Yikes. Is badgalriri in danger?
54-year-old Kevin McGlynn was caught “lurking” around Rihanna’s Manhattan apartment and sent her threatening letters; on Friday, NYC Judge Orlando Marrazzo ordered McGlynn to stay away from her home, or else he’d be arrested immediately.
In Judge Mazzarro’s decision, he said McGlynn is a “ticking time bomb who is wholly fixated on [Rihanna] and poses a direct threat of serious physical harm or death to her and anyone around her.”
McGlynn’s letters to the 26-year-old singer made references to murder and sexual assault, and Judge Mazzarro compared McGlynn to the man who shot and killed John Lennon. McGlynn is ordered to stay away from Rihanna’s apartment, and is barred from contacting her at all, for fear that he might do something more dangerous.
McGlynn was found unfit to stand trial back in September, and was committed to a psychiatric hospital in Staten Island (he’s since filed for release).
Be safe, Riri.
