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.

Restraining orders are so useless, why even bother? The only way they can arrest him is if he is seen close to her, they call the cops and the cops get there BEFORE he grabs, shoots or harms her in ANY way. They need to put a tracking device on these dudes or something a little more modern then telling them "go away"

I think she'd be better off getting 3 years of protection from Chris Brown.

Mr. Barrow should have punched her in the face. Then he would have at least scored a date with her.
