Rihanna Alleged Stalker Sent Masturbation Video
Rihanna’s latest alleged stalker, who Gossip Cop reported took a selfie of himself outside her home in April, apparently posted a video of himself masturbating to the singer. The individual, alternately identified as Alex Mercer and Ralph Alexander, was later placed under a psychiatric hold.
As Gossip Cop noted last year, Mercer/Alexander sent a number of menacing tweets to Rihanna in the spring. In one message on Twitter, he wrote, “Should of killed @rihanna a minute back I would be good right now… bout to get a gun license.” Among his many tweets, he also stated, “Imma marry @rihanna Lord willing s#omebody might die or something.” Mercer/Alexander, who referred to Rihanna as his “baby momma” in other tweets, also mentioned other celebrities in his postings, including Chris Brown, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, and Neil Patrick Harris.
In addition to the threatening messages, the 15-second masturbation video was among the most disturbing things discovered at Mercer/Alexander’s home. The police used his posts on social media to track him down, and he was ultimately put into a psychiatric facility, where he still is now.
Prior to Rihanna’s lastest alleged stalker, Gossip Cop reported in 2014 that a homeless man named Kevin McGlynn was picked up by the police after leaving threatening handwritten messages for the singer outside her New York apartment, and mailing other scary notes to her California home. McGlynn was later charged with stalking and harassment.
