Miley Cyrus' home was visited by a prowler who claimed he is secretly married to the star, early in the morning on Saturday.

The 19-year-old actress and singer was not home when the man entered the front gate of her Studio City, Los Angeles property and tried to open the door. He was weilding scissors.

A police spokesperson told KABC Television, OTRC.com's parent company that the suspect, Jason Luis Rivera, claimed he had been Cyrus' friend for five years and that he was waiting for her to come home. Relatives staying at the home called police, while the suspect began lighting candles outside.

When police arrived, the 40-year-old man told them that he had been secretly married to Cyrus for several years.

Cyrus has not commented on the incident.

Cyrus began her acting career when she was eight and rose to fame with her title role on "Hannah Montana," which ended in 2011 after four seasons. She returned to television earlier this year by guest starring as herself on the MTV prank series "Punk'd," a revival of a show created by Kutcher.

In 2010, Cyrus starred in her first major film, "The Last Song," with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. The two announced their engagement in June.

The actress later filmed the 2012 independent movie "LOL" with Kutcher's estranged wife, Demi Moore, and in the comedy film "So Undercover," which features Kelly Osbourne, Autumn Reeser and Jeremy Piven and is expected to be released later this year.

In August, it was announced that Cyrus would guest star on "Two and a Half Men." The gig will mark Cyrus' first television acting role since her Disney Channel show "Hannah Montana" ended in 2011.
