Rihanna slams paparazzi who tried to take photos of her baby son without her consent

Rihanna has slammed the paparazzi who attempted to snap pictures of her son without her consent.

The Caribbean singer is on everyone’s lips at the moment.

If her Super Bowl Halftime Show wasn't enough, the musician used the 13-minute set to debut her baby bump, making it official that she’s pregnant for a second time with partner A$AP Rocky.

However, the singer stopped by British Vogue to reveal her concerns about being one of the biggest superstars on the planet right now and navigating motherhood.

For the British Vogue shoot, which was set at a beach in Malibu, Rihanna bought her nine-month-old son as a means of introducing him to the world on her terms.

But the singer was displeased to notice a paparazzi lurking around the set to capture pictures of the infant.

She said following the incident: “Throw me to the wolves. Do what you want with me.


"But he doesn’t have a say in any of this.

"We’ve been protecting him thus far and you don’t have any consent to be posting photos or selling photos of my child, a minor.

"Get the hell out of here with that.”

She added: “Like there wasn’t even time for rage. [Rocky and me] drove up to the trailer area and we sat in the car chatting and working out how we move forward. As parents it just feels so icky, like a violation.”


As a result, Rihanna decided to join TikTok to debut her son before the photographers even had time to sell the pics to the highest bidder.

I mean, check-mate Rih Rih.

The 34-year-old posted the video in December to her seven million followers.

Unsurprisingly, viewers entered a frenzy with a glimpse of the baby, whose name hasn’t been disclosed publicly as of yet.


The 45-second video shows the infant smiling as he playfully tries to grab his mother’s camera.

One person wrote: “OH MY GOD ITS OUR NEPHEW.”

Another said: “Omg your son is so handsome.”


A third commented: “I don’t know why but as soon as I saw the notification I knew it would be a video of the baby.”

While another shared: “Stop so precious.”

The singer captioned the video: “Hacked.”

Way to take back the power, girl.
