In pictures that are bound to irk her on/off boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna has been pictured getting flirty with a handsome man who isn’t the bad boy singer.
The Umbrella singer was snapped with a chap called Justin Laboy on Sunday in a series of Twitter images with the pair affectionately pecking each other on the cheek. The photos found their way online after Rihanna’s weekend performance in Newark, New Jersey, as part of her Diamonds World Tour.
‘Real Recognize Real @Rihanna in my city. #NYC,’ came another message quickly after, this time with a picture of the pop babe returning the favor. While a third tweet completed the trilogy of intimate snaps along with the caption ‘Me and @rihanna and you ain’t even know it!’
In each of the pictures, Rihanna – dressed in a backwards baseball cap, transparent basketball vest, and chunky necklace – looks fully at ease and relaxed. The We Found Love singer has been on the road since the 8th March as part of her tour which will see her traversing the globe until mid October. With a busy schedule, the singer and fashion designer has been kept apart from her on-off boyfriend, Chris Brown, with speculation rife that the couple are currently in one of their ‘off’ phases.
Brown added fuel to this fire by releasing a series of explicit yet cryptic tweets after the sexy images of Rihanna with Justin emerged.
‘S**t is overrated now a days,’ he said in a tweet late in the early hours of Monday.
‘Just remember to keep ya muthaf****n head up,’ he added, suggesting he may be feeling a little bit down.
He has also since unfollowed Rihanna on Twitter, and is now re-following his other ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Meanwhile Rihanna seemed to be losing no sleep over the latest twist (literally) as she continued to party with other friends into the night and then hit Washington on Monday for her latest tour date. She was also, hilariously, spotted in new York on Monday afternoon as she left her hotel – taking shelter from the rain under an umbrella.
