Intruder at Miley Cyrus home arrested by the police
A man with a pair of scissors who claimed to be the husband of pop singer Miley Cyrus has been arrested at her Los Angeles home after he jumped her fence and said that he wanted to meet the teen star.
According to law enforcement sources, 19-year-old Miley Cyrus was out of town at the time of the incident which occurred on early Saturday morning. Police said they received a 911 call about a man who got onto the grounds of the property before dawn on Saturday, knocked on the door and banged on the walls of the former “Hannah Montana” star’s house. The authorities responded immediately at the home of Cyrus in Los Angeles, and when they arrived at the scene, they found a man named Jason Luis Rivera hiding in the bushes. He was then arrested and imprisoned for trespassing. He was carrying a pair of green and black scissors in a back pocket.
Media outlet TMZ ran a video of the arrest, in which Jason Luis Rivera can be heard telling the police as they searched him: “I am a friend of Miley Cyrus. I am. She’s my wife. Me and Miley have been friends for five years.”
The United Kingdom publication “Mirror” quoted a source as saying Jason Luis Rivera has a lengthy criminal record in Texas, which includes a previous charge of trespassing.
Speaking about the suspect, Lt. Wendling said, “He thinks they were married. And I would say delusional is a good characterization of him.”
Miley Cyrus rose to fame as the star of the Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” show. She went on to build a worldwide singing career which includes top hits like “Party in the U.S.A” and “The Climb.”
The teen star recorded music for the soundtracks, “Hannah Montana” (2006) and “Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus” (2007), released by Walt Disney Records. With the success of the “Hannah Montana” franchise, she has established herself as a teen idol. Back in 2007, she signed to Hollywood Records to pursue a solo career. She embarked upon the “Best of Both Worlds Tour” the same year, in which she performed as both herself and in character as Hannah Montana. The tour was eventually turned into a high-grossing concert film titled “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert” (2008). In July 2008, she released her first solo album, “Breakout” (2008), which was commercially successful.
