Rihanna may live on the wild side, but that doesn't mean she wants to fear for her life.

The Bajan superstar has reportedly hired former secret service agents of President Obama to protect her against any overzealous fans, or anyone else trying to harm her. Apparently, the chance of Ri Ri being harmed has risen since her rekindling the romance with Chris Brown.

Following her appearance with Chris at the Grammy Awards, a source reported that death threats against Rihanna tripled. Considering how inseparable the two have been, the haters probably aren't going away.

While celebrating her 25th birthday in Hawaii recently, a man was arrested after trying to break into her Pacific Palisades home in LA. Though the man's plan was thwarted and Rihanna wasn't there, she has a fully-equipped panic room in her house, Jodie Foster-style, just in case anything like that should happen while she is around.
