Did Rihanna use a body double in her Emporio Armani lingerie ad?

Unknown Irish model Jahnassa Aicken claims to be the behind behind Rihanna’s latest Emporio Armani video ad.

BY Belinda White

She’s got a body most women – and men – would die for, but if reports are to be believed, Rihanna is just as insecure as the next girl.

Well, that’s one explanation for reports in
The Sun
that the Bajan pop singer called on the services of a body double for the racy Emporio Armani lingerie campaign in which our heroine has a terrible night’s sleep in a rather nice bra.

Another more likely explanation is that busy Rihanna – who, let’s face it, is no stranger to nudity and never knowingly prudish – couldn’t be ‘arsed’ to hang about on set while the crew shot the close-ups of her pert posterior and called for a lesser mortal to oblige.

Step forward Irish model Jahnassa Aicken – a ringer for Sugababe Amelle Berrabah – who claims to be the bottom donor in question and alleges she was required to sign a contract banning her from ever owning up. Whoops.

Naturally Armani, being above such trifles have declined to comment on the claims. After all, even if they are true, Jahnassa’s rear view – which she claims was first brought to the attention of Rihanna’s management when it performed ‘furniture’ duties during the Belfast shoot of the
We Found Love
promo – only gets approximately two seconds of screen time in the minute-long video: hardly a starring role.

Looks like Aicken may yet regret her decision to spill the beans – after all, it’s arguably better to be the body double of the world’s hottest woman than an unknown Irish model facing a potential lawsuit. Then again perhaps her fifteen minutes could change all that. Watch this space…
