The emergence coincides with claims from a Hollywood socialite that she enjoyed a lesbian fling with the star. Model Natasha 'Tajah" Burton had said that she enjoyed a steamy encounter with a female singer, widely thought to be Rihanna. Though Tajah did not name the Barbadian as the star, she refused to deny that she was her former partner.
“I would say she's bisexual. It was really exciting. It was unexpected and it was very fun. The sex was really good but there was more to it - we really had a connection," she had told the Sun. The naked photos of Rihanna - which she texted to a former boyfriend - shows the 22-year-old topless, clad only in a pair of lacy underwear, covering her breasts with her arms as she poses in a mirror.
Another shot shows her lifting her shirt open with a finger provocatively resting on her tongue. It is not the first time Rihanna has had nude photos purporting to be her leaked onto the web. Raunchy photos allegedly showing her and then-boyfriend Chris Brown hit the web in 2009.
