Rhianna is the latest target in a string of prank calls, known as celebrity swattings.

Swatting is carried out by hackers who have illegally obtained celebrities information. The hackers place a bogus call to the police in hopes of getting the SWAT team deployed on an unsuspecting celebrity's house.

During the swatting incident at Rihanna's home, the perpetrator called 911 claiming there were armed men in the house and that someone had been shot, according to reports.

LAPD arrived on the scene shortly after they received the call and determined the crime was a hoax.

Police concluded Rihanna was the latest victim of celebrity hackers, who also struck P. Diddy, Chris Brown, Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber in recent months.
