Real Or Fake? Rihanna Naked Crotch Shot Goes Viral

Is it photoshopped or real?

By On

A photo appearing to show Rihanna's naked crotch has gone viral on the internet as fans try to work out whether the image, which shows the star sitting with her legs apart while sunbathing sans knickers, is photoshopped or not.

The image, which appears to have been taken from snaps of the star while she was onone of her many holidays, popped up on Twitter last night and soon had fans in a spin over whether or not the star had been papped in the nude.

One user wrote: "It's the perfect p***y"

While another was unsure if the pic was genuine, adding: "wat! That's real?"

Many of the comments were not to be repeated, but as a global sex symbol, it's unsurprising that many fans reacted excitedly to the image.

The Diamonds singer isn't exactly shy about her body, having posed without her knickers on before, but this is the first time we've had a crotch close-up. Speaking about her love of risque poses, usually on Instagram, the star admitted her mum doesn't like her taking her clothes off for the camera.

“I'm not afraid of any person in this world but my mother, I'm terrified of her!" she admitted to Elle magazine. 

"She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures [my friend ] Melissa put up on Instagram, a sneak peek from a photo book she's making about me."

"She went crazy on me, I was like, embarrassed," she continued. "I felt like I got my a** whipped in front of my class at school! She humbled the f**k out of me."

It's not the first time RiRi has been a victim of leaked photos. In 2009 images, believed to be intended for then boyfriend Chris Brown, were leaked online showing the star completely naked, posing in the mirror.

While RiRi has yet to comment on the picture, we doubt she'll care that much and in the past has admitted she's comfortable with nudity.

"The more I got naked, the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear," she told Women's Health last year.

"You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it."
