A man was reportedly arrested after trying to propose to Rihanna at her Beverly Hills home Thursday.
According to TMZ, the man traveled from South Carolina to get down on one knee for the singer.
It's unknown if Rihanna was at home at the time of the incident.
Police were called to Rihanna's Beverly Hills home on Thursday after a man tried to sneak onto the property to propose to her, according to multiple reports.
TMZ reported that the man traveled over 2,500 miles from South Carolina to get down on one knee for the singer, but was stopped by her security detail along her driveway.
Police were then called and the man was arrested for trespassing, reported Page Six.
TMZ said that he was released by police after questioning because he had not broken any laws, but was asked to leave and told not to return.
It's unknown if Rihanna, who is pregnant with her and rapper A$AP Rocky's second child, was at home at the time of the incident.
Neither the Los Angeles Police Department nor representatives for Rihanna immediately responded to requests for comment.

This isn't the first time somebody has shown up uninvited to Rihanna's house.
In 2018, a man named Eduardo Leon was arrested after he broke into the "Rude Boy" singer's Hollywood Hills home and waited there for over 12 hours.
Leon, 27 at the time, hopped a fence, entered Rihanna's house, and stayed overnight. According to TMZ, the intruder unpacked a bag and started charging his phone after breaking into the property.
Rihanna was not home at the time, but her assistant found Leon the next day and called the police.
Leon later told police, according to TMZ, that he was there to have sex with Rihanna. He was charged with stalking, burglary, vandalism — all felonies — and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest over the incident at a Los Angeles court.
According to TMZ, in 2021, police were again called to Rihanna's home in Los Angeles after reports of an intruder trespassing on her property.
TMZ said the intruder fled by the time police arrived.
