Rihanna injured in electric scooter accident

The singer is said to be "completely fine now"

Rihanna has suffered minor injuries after being involved in an electric scooter accident.

After photos surfaced on Friday (September 4) of the singer with a black eye and swelling to the face, TMZ discovered that the injuries were brought about after Rihanna fell off a scooter.

According to the publication, the scooter flipped over, smacking her in the face and forehead in an incident that took place earlier in the week.


“Rihanna is completely fine now but flipped over on an electric scooter last week and bruised her forehead and face,” a rep for Rihanna told People.

The rep added: “Luckily there were no major injuries and she is healing quickly.”

The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker’s accident comes a month after Simon Cowell was hospitalised after breaking his back falling off his new electric bicycle.

The music mogul was trying out the bike in the courtyard of his Malibu home with his family when he fell off and injured himself.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande has pleaded with Rihanna to “pls drop her album” after breaking the singer’s streaming record.

Grande shared a screenshot of a @chartdata tweet from earlier this week, which announced her as “the most streamed female artist of all-time on Spotify” – surpassing Rihanna’s 20.5 billion stream record.


She responded “holy shit” and thanked fans for “listening and caring” about her music, before dropping the request.

“Now can Rihanna pls drop her album so she can rightfully snatch this back and fill my ears again please or…” she wrote.
