Cops say the man never entered Rihanna's home ... but, in fact, entered the home next door believing it was Rihanna's home.

He was arrested outside of that property ... not Rihanna's home.

A man was arrested outside of Rihanna's Southern California home in the Pacific Palisades ... after neighbors saw the guy snooping around and apprehended him Thursday night ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the suspect has told police someone emailed him instructions on how to get into the home ... so he rolled over to the property and followed the directions.

We're told the instructions worked ... because the man was able to get inside the home ... where he allegedly snooped around for a while before neighbors noticed something was up.

Our sources tell us ... neighbors went over to the home and confronted the man -- and eventually detained him when they realized he didn't belong there. Police were called to the scene and took the man into custody.

The man is currently being investigated for burglary.

So her house wasn't broken into...maybe TMZ should wait to get all the facts before posting a fake story. Oh I forgot...real journalism is dead...smh!

WOW! Talk about GREAT neighbours! That is pretty creepy. I'm curious to know if Rihanna was home and what his motive was?

Just saw the update. Way to go, TMZ! Other sites have already reported your 'version' of the story. It's still disturbing that he was trying to enter Rihanna's home (if that part is true). I hope they find out what his intentions were.


p.s. TMZ, why not give Rihanna's new video "Stay" featuring Mikky Ekko Video, a plug?

Not a very flattering picture of "R", she needs a chemical peel for the acne scars on her cheek and neck.

Considering TMZ is quick to tell the world when celebrities are out of the country, they can take some of the responsibility for celebs having their homes burglarized. Want to see who's out of town? Just log on and TMZ will tell you where they are.

Probably a TMZ reporter; this is what the paparazzi and media folks do to get 'dirt', i.e. pictures, etc., on celebrities and increase ratings/distribution. This is how the mysterious pics surface on the net that nobody knows where it came from.
