Okay. So a batch of nude photos of Rihanna, or what is supposedly Rihanna, have started floating around the Internets as of late Friday afternoon.
Here's the deal:
- There are seven pictures in all, hosted by imagehaven.com. We do not recommend you actually go there unless you want about 27 viruses.
- All seven shots appear to be self-taken in the same area.
- The alleged Rihanna pics show various body parts, including two close ups of what is clearly Rihanna's face and a third Rihanna photo showing her from head to knee, reflected in a bathroom mirror with "I love you" scrawled on it.
- The four shots that do not include Rihanna's head in them include two of a bare bottom in a mirror, which could belong to almost any human being.
- One depicts a hand with black nail polish clasping bare cheek.
- The last shows Rihanna nude (supposedly) and taking a photo of herself with one pierced breast exposed and a pink towel over her shoulder.
UPDATE: According to TMZ, RiRi's label, Island Def Jam, sent a letter to at least one site demanding the photos be removed, calling them a violation of "the Artist's rights." It does not deny (or confirm) if the pics are really Rihanna.
We'll have more for you on this story as it develops, but right now, the evidence that these are actually Rihanna nude pics remains kind of weak.
