Rihanna made a 2am dash for an emergency bikini wax
The `Rude Boy` hitmaker - who has been in Northern Ireland shooting the video for her single `We Found Love` - had her team call four local beauticians in the early hours of Monday morning (26.09.11), before finally persuading one to get out of bed to perform the intimate treatment.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Rihanna arrived at her hotel very late and the first thing she wanted was a bikini wax. The video shoot was scheduled for the following morning so she didn`t have much time.
"Her assistants got on the case quickly and called some beauticians after finding a directory on the web. It was relief all round when they finally managed to find someone."
During her time in Belfast, the 23-year-old singer - who previously dated baseball star Matt Kemp and singer Chris Brown - is also said to have grown close to her video co-star, British boxer Dudley O`Shaughnessy.
A source recently said: "Rihanna was making no secret that she was attracted to Dudley. They hit it off straight away. She had seen his modelling shots and other pictures when he was a boxer.
"Rihanna took every opportunity to get close to him and at one point she was sitting in his lap during a break from filming. She`s very tactile anyway, but this was something else."
