Kevin McGlynn, 53, was arrested Thursday after leaving threatening notes at Rihanna's rented house here, reports

The New York Post's Page Six reports he was charged with stalking, menacing and harassment and held without bail after writing a string of insulting notes and delivering them twice - July 8 and July 1.

Rihanna was earlier forced to put her own estate in Pacific Palisades, California, on the market in May after owning it for just over a year as stalkers kept showing up unannounced.
