Justin Timberlake has become the latest celebrity victim of ''swatting''.

Police were called to the 'Suit & Tie' singer's Hollywood Hills home on Friday (05.04.13) after the Los Angeles Police Department received a call claiming four men entered the house and shots were fired, according to gossip website TMZ.

The incident at Justin's home comes just one day after Rihanna was the victim of a similar prank and two days after more than a dozen police cars and two helicopters swarmed Diddy's Los Angeles home when they received a hoax phone-call also informing them that someone had been shot inside the property.

Comedian and actor Steve Carell's home was also secured as it is located next door to Diddy's, whose real name is Sean Combs.

Upon searching the mansion, officers found no evidence of criminal activity or a shooter.

A law enforcement source said they are taking the incident very seriously and intend to prosecute the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law once they are tracked down.

The trio are the latest in a number of celebrities to fall victim to a 'swatting' prank, following a similar incident at Paris Hilton's home last week and Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills home in January when a prank caller claimed an armed robbery was taking place, but officers found no crime had been committed.

A 12-year-old child also previously targeted Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber's homes in a series of elaborate prank burglaries.
