What does Chris Brown, Rihanna and Diddy have in common? Falling victims to the same dangerous prank.

The Bajan singer was swatted on Thursday afternoon (Apr. 4), TMZ reports. Police arrived at Rih Rih’s home in the 900 block of Rivas Canyon Road in Pacific Palisades at around 3 p.m. after they received a phone call claiming two armed men were in the house and that someone had been shot. Authorities discovered the call was simulated.

The “Diamonds” singer was too busy embarking on a world tour and was not at home. Others that have fallen victim to the ridiculous prank are Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher and Miley Cyrus.

The same celebrity hackers who revealed tons of financial information of big-name stars from Michelle Obama to Jay-Z are taking credit for the string of pranks.
