Rihanna
just scored three years of peace of mind ... because a judge has granted her request for a permanent restraining order against an obsessed fan who tried to break into her L.A. home last month.

TMZ broke the story ... Rihanna obtained a temporary stay-away order against a man named Steveland Barrow, after he was arrested for breaking into the home of Rihanna's neighbor. Cops told us Barrow believed the home belonged to Rihanna ... and even slept in one of the beds.

A judge made the temporary order permanent today, requiring Barrow to stay at least 100 yards away from Rihanna for the next three years.

In her request for a restraining order, Rihanna said she fears for her safety.

Maybe if she didn't post thug life photos of herself, and core porno type photos of herself, and not act like a hoe, and not wear necklaces with the word C^^t and and and... then she wouldn't have wackos.

Yeah because auto tune and a series of ellas really can make a person obsess over such a creative genius. American Idol taught singers how to do this good for them and lets forget about real vocalists like Chris Cornell or James Hetfield.

How can an order of protection protect anyone from someone who was already breaking laws trying to get to you to harm you? These aren't law abiding citizens. There have been plenty of women murdered despite these orders of protection.
