UMBRELLA singer Rihanna is said to be devastated after explicit pictures of her posing naked appeared on the internet.
Two shots taken by the star herself in a hotel bathroom mirror reveal her bare bum - but a third photo is far more revealing.
Rihanna, 21, is said to be so embarrassed she's fled Hollywood and taken refuge in Hawaii. It is yet more misery for the star who in February was allegedly attacked by then boyfriend, singer Chris Brown. Leaked photos revealed shocking injuries to her face. He was charged with assault.
One of Rihanna's pals said: "She is freaking out. She was on the road to recovery after a terrible few months. She has no idea how these pictures have been leaked but she's determined to find out." One photo shows a man, believed to be Brown, sitting in the hotel room with a pair of pink pants on his head. Rihanna is recording a new album in Hawaii. Her pal added: "She's rushed off to Hawaii to escape the scrutiny.
"She's recording her new album and wants to shut herself in the studio away from the world for a few days."
The Good Girl Gone Bad singer posed for raunchy shots in the January issue of Germany's FHM mag, but preserved her modesty with a strategically placed umbrella.
She has insisted in the past that she would never want to be pictured naked, saying: "My mother would kill me if I posed nude."
Rihanna's record label Island Def Jam demanded that the photos be removed because they "violate the artist's rights". But her lawyers have not denied that the photos are genuine.
