Rihanna's Instagram Account 'Briefly Disabled'

Photo sharing site says page was shut down by mistake after singer posts nude photos.

There's no debating that the camera loves Rihanna,  but some of her shots were a little too hot for Instagram. 

The photo sharing site "briefly disabled" the 26-year-old singer's account Monday (May 5), less than a week after she posted topless and bottomless images from her cover shoot with French publication Lui magazine. 

When the skin flicks first went up for her more than 12 million followers (and the entire World Wide Web) to see, Instagram sent a warning Rih Rih's way. She responded by removing the offending images and threw up a meme mocking Instagram's nudity police, along with a fan drawing of her topless cover.  

Still, by the top of this week, her entire page was no more.

"Yesterday, we briefly disabled the account by mistake and restored it quickly," rep Alison Schumer shared with the Daily News. "I can confirm that we have not deleted the account subsequently."

At press time, a visit to Bad Gal RiRi's account says "Page Not Found." Fans will have to head over to her Twitter page for a gander at the skin-bearing photos.
