Model/actress Carmen Electra was left shocked on Thursday (23Oct14) when her ex-husband Dennis Rodman showed up uninvited to her early Halloween party in Florida. The former Baywatch star was preparing to walk the red carpet at a private Fright Night party in Boca Raton, but before she exited her limousine, she spotted Rodman at the event, according to TMZ.com.

Less than an hour after her departure, the party was halted by police because it had become out of control.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "The organisers feared a riot was developing so the police were called to try to get things under control... she (Brown) only stayed for ten minutes before escaping with Stephen and going straight home. It was hugely embarrassing for everyone involved but also really scary."
A police spokesperson adds, "We were called to assist security as large crowds were trying to gain access to the party. After consultation with police, the organisers agreed to end the event."
