Staying completely mum on the leak of her nude pics just months after she was assaulted by then-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna finally addresses the matter, claiming the incident was "humiliating and embarrassing". "I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that and then, when that came out, I thought, 'oh great, so now there's nothing they don't know about me and my private life'," she told U.S. radio station Hot 97 in an interview.
Making the matter worse, it took place just two days before Mother's Day which then made her feeling nervous of her mother's reaction. "I sent her flowers first before I called and then she texted me," recalled the "Umbrella" hit maker. Fortunately, her mother had positive attitude toward the photos and gave her support to get through it. "When the world is against me she's always there supporting," she gushed.
Tackling the negative effects the racy pics have cost her, Rihanna in fact has learned her lesson. She, moreover, told Hot 97 she "feels bad" for any man who doesn't get sent naked photos of his girlfriend, claiming "If you don't send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him."
A total of eight highly explicit photos of Rihanna were leaked in early May this year, three months after he was battered by Chris Brown during a heated altercation in a car. The photos reportedly were taken in the bathroom and bedroom of a hotel in Hollywood where the now-former-lovers had been staying. In addition to featuring Rihanna exposing her bottom and breasts, one of the shots showed Chris with pink panties on his head.
