The ‘Rude Boy’ hitmaker – who has been in Northern Ireland shooting the video for her single ‘We Found Love’ – had her team call four local beauticians in the early hours of Monday morning, before finally persuading one to get out of bed to perform the intimate treatment.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Rihanna arrived at her hotel very late and the first thing she wanted was a bikini wax. The video shoot was scheduled for the following morning so she didn’t have much time.
“Her assistants got on the case quickly and called some beauticians after finding a directory on the web. It was relief all round when they finally managed to find someone.”
During her time in Belfast, the 23-year-old singer – who previously dated baseball star Matt Kemp and singer Chris Brown – is also said to have grown close to her video co-star, British boxer Dudley O’Shaughnessy.
A source recently said: “Rihanna was making no secret that she was attracted to Dudley. They hit it off straight away. She had seen his modelling shots and other pictures when he was a boxer.
“Rihanna took every opportunity to get close to him and at one point she was sitting in his lap during a break from filming. She’s very tactile anyway, but this was something else.”
