Published April 14, 2015

Rihanna has become notorious for responding to criticism throughout the years, and this time, when claims that the Bajan singer was abusing cocaine surfaced, she wasted no time in setting the record straight.


The claims were first introduced when a video of RiRi partying with her girls at Coachella hit the Internet. In the clip, the "Cheers" performer can be seen rolling a substance before rubbing her nose vigorously, prompting some to believe that cocaine was involved.

After the hot topic went viral on social media, Rihanna took to her RihPlies Instagram page to put the rumors to rest. In response to a fan who accused the singer of abusing the drug, she wrote, "N***a your lame a** got some f*****g nerve!!! Any fool could see that's a joint that I'm basing with cigarette! Who tF snorts tobacco??!! FOH witcho 'never been to a rodeo so someone squeezing their nose means they're doing coke' lookin a**!!"

To prove that the comment was, in fact, all hers, the "American Oxygen" singer added, "It ain't fake!!! This lil b***h @1ezmoney posted it with a caption full of defamation."

Well, there you have it. Tell us how you really feel, RiRi!
