    Chris Brown's House Stormed by Cops Following Swatting Prank; Singer Spotted Getting Cozy With Rihanna at L.A. Club

    Chris Brown may insist that his relationship with Rihanna is nobody's business, but pranksters apparently thought that his home was very much their affair.

    The controversial R&B crooner became the latest victim of celebrity swatting after cops rushed to his house Monday in response to an emergency call that turned out to be a hoax.

    Per the Los Angeles Times, police received a call before 5 p.m. alerting them to an alleged domestic-violence incident at the "Forever" singer's L.A. home and claiming that the caller's mom may have also been shot.

    But cops found no such disturbance when they arrived at the house, where they were greeted by members of Brown's staff.

    Although the crooner himself reportedly wasn't home, his parents arrived shortly afterward as police investigated the premises.

    Brown now joins a slew of A-list celebs who've recently been targeted by celebrity swatting, including Tom Cruise, Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber. Last month, authorities arrested an unidentified juvenile whom they believe masterminded several of the hoaxes.

    Meanwhile, Brown and Rihanna continued to fuel chatter about their cryptic relationship when the two were spotted canoodling at a West Hollywood hot spot on Friday.

    The duo hit up Emerson Theatre, where they had a table and also hung out with pal Wiz Khalifa. An eyewitness tells E! News that Breezy and Ri-Ri were far from shy about being affectionate, as Brown had his arm around his gal pal while they chatted with friends at Khalifa's table. The twosome were reportedly in a great mood and stayed all night, leaving shortly before 2 a.m.

    The tempestuous duo haven't been doing much to play down their recent dalliances: On New Year's Day, they posted twitpics of themselves in bed together, and the two were spotted leaving a recording studio separately as word surfaced that they're currently collaborating on another song.

    So much for nobody's business.
