Nude Rihanna photos, or what is supposedly the Barbadian pop star Rihanna, have spread around the web and around the world.
Seven pictures have been posted [WARNING: GRAPHIC] that show various body parts, including two close ups of what is clearly Rihanna's face and a third photo of Rihanna head-to-knee reflected in a bathroom mirror as she takes the photo with a message of "I love you" scrawled on it.
All seven shots are self taken in the same white bathroom and bedroom area and are mildly gritty.
The four shots that do NOT include Rihanna's head in them include two of a bare bottom as seen reflected in a mirror, one of a dark lacquer-nailed hand squeezing a bottom and a photo of an undressed torso from a reflection in a mirror. One breast is pierced and pink Nike towel is flung over a shoulder hiding the other.
Rihanna was in New York all of last week, starting with Monday's Vogue-sponsored Met gala, in her first public appearances since the Grammy-eve fracas with then-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Late Friday her record label reportedly got involved and sent out a letter to a website that published the pics demanding that they be removed, calling the photos a violation of "the Artist's rights."
