From boob-shaped birthday cakes to flirtations with R-Patz, we take a look at some of the craziest rumours surrounding the Barbadian mega-star.
Many fans claim that Rihanna's ex boyfriend Drake is referencing the 'We Found Love' singer in his track 'No Lie' from the album 'Take Care'. The hit features the lyrics, "Aww that look like what’s her name, chances are it’s what’s her name. She could have a Grammy, I still treat her ass like a nominee".
Rumours of a reunion between Rihanna and Chris Brown have circulated ever since the couple's highly publicised split in 2009. The rumour mill went into overdrive during summer 2012 when numerous eyewitnesses reported that the 'Turn Up The Music' star had visited his former girlfriend on board her luxury yacht while the pair holidayed (apparently separately) in Sardinia. The former couple hit the headlines once more when they hugged and kissed after Rihanna collected a gong at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. The event came just weeks after a tearful Rihanna told Oprah Winfrey that she and her ex are "still close" and "will always love each other", something Chris Brown's model girlfriend Karrrueche Tran was reported to be less than delighted to hear.
The 'I Will Always Love You' singer's death was said to have a profound effect on Rihanna, who had cited Whitney Houston as a major influence (following her tragic death, Rihanna tweeted that there were "no words, just tears"). With 2012 seeing Rihanna take a blink-of-the-eye break from music to make her acting debut in film Battleship, it wasn't long before Rihanna was being linked to a film of the singer's life which is yet to go into production. Rihanna has insisted that there is no truth in the rumour.
According to Star magazine, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie banned their son Pax from listening to Rihanna's music after catching the lyrics to the raunchy 'Birthday Cake', which contain the words: "I know you wanna bite this, Its so enticin' Nothin' else like this, I'mma make you my b*tch!".
Rihanna and Adele share an undeniably close relationship, with the former telling red carpet reporters at the 2012 BRITs that the only reason she was there was to "stalk" the 'Someone Like You' singer, and the latter confessing that she'd "definitely do it" with Rihanna if the 'We Found Love' singer wanted to. But following her birthday celebrations, Adele took to her Twitter to tell the world that there was no truth whatsoever in the rumour that Adele had sent her a homemade boob-shaped birthday cake to help her celebrate.
The 'We Found Love' singer has been linked to Demi Moore's ex husband and Two And A Half Men star Aston Kutcher (pictured, top right)) but the rumour mill doesn't stop there. Rihanna has also been linked to reality TV star Rob Kardashian (pictures, bottom right), baseball player Matt Kemp, rockstar Travis Barker, actor Ryan Phillippe (pictures, bottom left), basketball player Andrew Bynum, boxer Dudley O'Shaughnessy, rapper Meek Mill, actor Colin Farrell, singer Justin Timberlake, rapper Kanye West, high School Musical star Zac Efron, and even Nicki Minaj!
No sooner than pictures of Rihanna's 2012 spring underwear collection for Armani were released, than rumours began to circulate that the 'S&M' singer had used a body double for the raunchy imagery and that Rihanna's head had been superimposed onto the body of model Jahnassa Aicken. The Barbadian singer had vehemently denied the claims.
Ever since Rihanna tweeted a picture of herself alongside striker Didier Drogban, along with the hashtag #thereisaGod, Chelsea fans have proudly declared the singer one of their own.
Ever since Rihanna made her acting debut in the film Battleship, fans of the 'Cheers' singer have been eagerly awaiting news of her next acting foray. The wait will continue however, as RiRi's publicist recently denied that the singer will have a role in the 2013 movie Fast & Furious 6. Rihanna has recently said though that she'd love a role in the remake of 1983 flick Scarface.
If rumours are to believed then half of Hollywood is currently queuing up to console Robert Pattinson since his split with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart. Katy Perry was said to be first in line to offer the hand of friendship, and after getting R-Patz's number through a "mutual friend", Rihanna was said to have extended the offer, with the pair now engaged in "sexy, funny texts".
