Ryan Seacrest
is being swatted right now ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a 911 call came in by someone claiming shots were fired inside the house by "mobster looking guys in suits with rifles."

Our sources say it has all the markings of swatting.

A slew of cops are at the house, which Ryan recently purchased from Ellen DeGeneres for around $39 million.

It's ironic ... Seacrest was just talking to Russell Brand this morning on the radio about Russell's recent swatting experience. Crazy timing.

TMZ broke the story ... just days ago Russell, RihannaJustin Timberlake, Selena Gomez and Diddy were all swatted.

Russel Brand makes sense. It is a pain but it is also a joke. Putting a teen in jail over it for three years seems very excessive. Why don't the cops just wise up and stop sending helicopters and SWAT teams every time they get a phone call to a celebrities house? You would think by now they would just be sending a patrol car by to check on it.


I wonder if the SWAT teams have kicked in any doors. Do they just walk up and ring the bell? Maybe they could just look up the phone number to the adress and call and see if things are okay. It would take less time than assembling a SWAT team and sending a hellicopter.

I think that the 'swattings' are testing out the LAPD and their response times, etc, because soon, a bunch of swats will be called in at once to distract from a major crime elsewhere in the city.

I guarantee that the person whos making these calls was listening to the russell brand interview and as soon as Seacrest started bitching about it he instantly became a target. I mean, think about it, look how fast this caller can come up with a celebs personal info. Def a hacker or someone on the inside (looking at you TMZ).

I do wonder if the "Swatter" person was irritated when Seacrest mentioned the 3 years in jail part, or if they weren't bothered by it, definitely did it for pay back or big ass jab.

STOP COVERING IT AND THEY'LL QUIT. Of course I say the same thing about school shootings but they'll never let go on that one, the ratings are too good.

Look at this guys house. Not just Seacrest, look at all orf their houses and the ridiculous amounts of money they make. Meanwhile people are homeless. I almost want to say these celebrities deserve it because we live in an unfair system where people in the entertainment industry are paid too much money. It must be the Federal Reserve printing these 20 million dollars a shot motion pictures. They print the money when it doesn't exist. Im supposed to feel sorry for these elites that are born into a life of luxury?
