FASHION: RIHANNA’S BODY DOUBLE? (WHO’S JACK ONLINE JUNE 2012)
Rihanna’s recent campaign for Emporio Armani Jeans has been well publicised in the fashion world, with the sexy ad depicting the 24-year-old pop star showing off her killer body in some of the brand’s killer lingerie.
But today a rumour surfaced on The Sun’s website that the body shown isn’t 100% Rihanna. The article, titled ‘No Butts: That Ain’t Rihanna’ made claims that Irish model Jahnassa Aicken acts as a body double in the advert.
Rihanna has vehemently discounted the rumours, and has since lashed out via Twitter, with comments like “Who is Jahnassa” and “Does she have a tat on her hand too” – not to mention directing a somewhat stronger-worded tweet at The Sun:
“Ok @thesunnewspaper, this is the only way I could say this to you!!! F*CK YOU”
Unsurprisingly, the story has now gone viral, with Rihanna’s 20-million plus legions of fans taking to the social networking site to express their rage at the gossip. There has been such heated debate on the subject that, at the time of writing, ‘Jahnassa’ is even trending worldwide.
Aicken maintains that she was told to sign a contract banning her from ever disclosing her role in the campaign. If this is indeed the case, we can’t help but wonder what her motivation for coming forward is…
Armani has declined to comment.
