An unidentified flying object (UFO) watcher gives Rihanna 24-hour updates on extraterrestrial activity, according to Britain's Daily Star.

The singer reportedly believes aliens will land on Earth, so she pays a person to keep an eye on possible incidents in the skies above the Mojave Desert in Nevada.

A source told the tabloid, "Rihanna has always been convinced aliens will land on Earth in her lifetime. So she started using the man, who calls himself a sky scanner, to give her information from Nevada on anything that relates to sightings.

"He keeps in touch with her from the Little A'Le'Inn, a motel which hosts UFO hunters. It's also near one of the world's most secret government bases, Area 51. This isn't a fad for Rihanna, she is a total believer and doesn't mind spending her money on it to get results."

Rihanna's fascination with aliens reportedly started from her father while she was growing up in Barbados.
