Over the weekend, Miley Cyrus dealt yet again with one of the less-desirable aspects of fame … an unwanted (and potentially dangerous) person at her Los Angeles-area home. According to reports, early Saturday morning a man jumped the fence onto her property and knocked on her door, claiming he knew Cyrus, before repeatedly throwing himself against the exterior wall of the house. Someone at the home called 911 (Cyrus was out of town at the time) and the man was later caught hiding in the bushes at the pop star's property holding a pair of scissors. In footage obtained by TMZ, the suspect, who identified himself as Jason Luis Rivera, claimed he knew the 19-year-old. "I am a friend of Miley Cyrus. I am. She's my wife. Me and Miley have been friends for five years," he said during his arrest.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Rivera is being held on suspicion of burglary. "He thinks they were married," Lt. Brian Wendling of the Los Angeles Police Department told E! News. "And I would say delusional is a good characterization of him."
It's not the first time Cyrus' home has been the center of police activity. Last month, police, fire, and rescue squads showed up after a prank call was made to 911 claiming a home invasion was taking place at the property. They quickly discovered it was a false alarm.
And in March of 2011, a man named Musa Danasabe Ibrahim, who had allegedly been stalking the "Party in the U.S.A." singer attempted to break into her home, but accidentally scaled the fence of her neighbor's yard instead, where he told a witness he had a date with Cyrus. He was promptly arrested for trespassing.
Despite the fact these fence-hopping guys claim to have relationships with Cyrus, she's actually engaged to 22-year-old Australian actor Liam Hemsworth … who probably has the code to the gate.
