Rihanna in Mexico

Rihanna Seeks Solace South of the Border

In an effort to get away from all the media and rumors that have been surrounding her lately, Rihanna escaped to Mexico.

“The Insider” obtained photos of the recently turned 21-year-old singer out of hiding last weekend and will air them on tonight’s episode.

The bruises that Chris Brown allegedly left on the pop star’s face were not visible in the photographs, but she is not smiling. Rihanna is reportedly staying at a private beachside villa in the resort town of Punta Mita with a couple close friends.

The photos are a stark contrast to the ones we’ve seen in the past of the Barbados beauty on vacation, smiling and having a good time with Brown.
