The 'We Found Love' singer was pictured boarding a luxury yacht off the coast of Italy this weekend.

Rihanna was pictured arriving in Sardinia yesterday (15th July) as she headed on a luxury cruise around the Mediterranean with a group of her friends.

The 'You Da One' star flew into an airport on the seaside town of Porto Cervo after spending time back home in Barbados this past week.

The singer was rumoured to be inviting her former boyfriend Drake on the trip, although he was not pictured among the Bajan star's entourage as she boarded her yacht.

The 'Talk That Talk' singer was seen wearing a long black dress and a bright red cap as she arrived on the Island.

She was accompanied by a mystery male and is rumoured to be meeting the Canadian rapper in Cannes later in the week.

The singer returned to Barbados following the death of her grandmother Dolly at the end of last month.

The star has also been working on her new studio album and the follow up to 2011's 'Talk That Talk'.

Labrinth and Ne-Yo have already confirmed their involvement on the record with reports suggesting that N-Dubz star Fazer is also on board for the project.
