A New York City judge ordered a man to stay away from Rihanna Friday after he was busted for "lurking" outside of her Manhattan apartment building, according to Reuters.

Judge Orlando Marrazo said 54-year-old Kevin McGlynn wrote several notes to the "Stay" singer that made references to murder and sexual assault. He also accused Rihanna and other artists of using his material in their songs.

The judge didn't take his threats lightly, to say the least. He compared Kevin to Mark David Chapman, who shot and killed John Lennon," adding, "he appears to be a ticking time bomb who is wholly fixated on [Rihanna], and poses a direct threat of serious physical harm or death to her and anyone around her."

All of this went down after Kevin was found unfit to stand trial on stalking charges in September. He was committed to a psychiatric hospital in Staten Island, but later petitioned for his release.

This is just the latest time Rihanna has dealt with a stalker. Back in October 2013, a different man was taken into custody after he allegedly threw a chair through a glass door at her Pacific Palisades, Calif. home and claimed to be her husband when security confronted him.
