Rihanna denies sex tape rumours
Singer scotches gossip after 'Hustler' claim to have been handed saucy video
Despite claims from the adult publication Hustler that they have been given a pornographic video featuring the pop star and J-Cole, who supported her on tour earlier this year, the 'S&M' singer has taken to Twitter to deny that the tape exists.
According to E! News, Hustler had confirmed that they were in possession of a video made by Rihanna, who was criticised by Spice Girls singer Mel C earlier this month for being “too sexual”. They quoted Hustler as revealing:
Hustler are in possession of the Rihanna and J-Cole tape. We have seen it and we do not know what we are going to do with it yet.
However, Rihanna scotched the publication's claims by posting a message on her Twitter account. "We don’t believe U," she wrote. "U need more people… AND of course an actual sex tape! Slownewsday."
Rihanna will not be the first musician to be supposedly implicated in a sex tape. In 2005, Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst sued ten websites for $70 million (£42,747,500) for posting a homemade sex video which was stolen from his computer by hackers. In 2007, meanwhile, it was briefly reported that a sex tape featuring The White Stripes’ drummer Meg White was circulating the internet before it was confirmed to be a fake.
Conversely, in 2010, 50 Cent was sued for the unlawful distribution of a sex tape after Lastonia Leviston claimed he posted a video of herself with a lover on his website. The rapper was also alleged to have narrated the video.
