Rihanna made to cover up after farmer complains about her 'state of undress'

Alan Graham put a stop to filming on 'We Found Love' video after deeming it 'inappropriate'

Rihanna made to cover up after farmer complains about her 'state of undress'
Rihanna was forced to cover up after the farmer whose field she was using to film the video for her new single 'We Found Love' objected to her "state of undress".

The singer, who released the Calvin Harris collaboration last week, was filming the video in a field in Bangor in Northern Ireland when farmer Alan Graham asked her and her crew to stop as he believed her "state of undress" was inappropriate.

Speaking to BBC News, Graham admitted that he did not know who Rihanna was when he got a phonecall to ask for the use of his field in Bangor, County Down, for the video shoot last week.

During the shoot, Graham drove though on his tractor and requested that the singer cover up – he spoke to her in person to say this.

Graham said:

I thought it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did. I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I'm coming from. We shook hands. From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate. I was unhappy with her state of undress. I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God.

Rihanna plays an extensive UK arena tour in the coming weeks.
