(Newser) – Rihanna has fled to Hawaii to escape hectoring questions after a web site posted nude photos of what it claims is the singer's bod, reports the Times of India. Rihanna's music company has ordered at least one website to remove the photos that reveal a bare backside and a nipple ring in shots that's don't reveal a face. The shots appear to have been taken in a hotel mirror, which is signed in soap: "Love, Robyn," which is Rihanna's real name.

"She's rushed off to Hawaii to escape the scrutiny," said a friend. "She's recording her new album and wants to shut herself in the studio away from the world for a few days."
