Since Friday (May 8), the internet has been buzzing over leaked nude photos of Rihanna, allegedly showing the singer in all her glory.
Since the leak, which followed leaked photos of a nude Cassie earlier in the week, fans and bloggers have speculated whether Rihanna's ex Chris Brown -- who also appears to be in the set of photos of the singer -- was responsible.
Despite hearsay and rumors, Brown is denying any involvement in the release of the photos on Friday.
On Sunday (May 10), a spokesperson released the following statement on behalf of Brown: "Rumors that images circulating on the web, which purport to be provocative photos of Rihanna were 'leaked' by Chris Brown are both false and defamatory. Chris has not released or 'leaked' any photos of Rihanna (or anyone else for that matter)."
In as many as seven photos, a woman shot several self-portrait pics in various hotel mirrors. Rihanna's face is clear in at least three photos, all of which show the singer clothed. None of the nude pics feature the woman's face. One photo features a man who resembles Brown, shirtless but not nude, with lacy underwear on his head.
According to TMZ, the legal department of Island Def Jam, Rihanna's label, mailed out cease and desist notices to at least one website hosting the alleged nude photos, demanding that they be removed, claiming they are in violation of "the Artist's rights."
Depite the legal involvement from Island, they did not confirm whether the photos are, indeed, of Rihanna.http://www.ballerstatus.com/2009/05/12/chris-brown-denies-leaking-nude-rihanna-photos/
