What a fake Fenty!
“A fake Rihanna in Brazil with security guards and even selfies with fans” laughed a stunned fan on twitter.
The viral tweet was accompanied by a now trending clip of the RiRi imposter – believed to be Brazilian internet influencer Priscila Beatrice – snapping selfies with swarms of crying fans, welcoming strangers into the crowd to cuddle her plump full belly, and during a fluent Portuguese speaking impromptu interview with a local media outlet.
2020 the professional impersonator garnered an incredible 6.2 million views on TikTok with a video of her dressing up as a 34-year-old megastar, née Robyn Rihanna Fenty, and lip-syncing her hit song “The Monster.”
The popular post eventually made it to Instagram-based celebrity news site The Shade Room, where Rihanna jokingly commented, “Where’s the album? #R9” – referring to the repeated requests for their long-awaited ninth studio album.
Neither Beatrice nor Rihanna’s representatives immediately responded to The Post’s requests for comment.
But while her recent fake Fenty-Flex fooled the throng of screaming buffs in Brazil, fans in the US were utterly unconvinced.
“In Brazil there is a lady pretending to be pregnant Rihanna?!!! People are sick! Very strange. Why is she actually safe? I mean, she resembles her, but that’s beyond weird.” tweeted one admirer the Grammy award winner.
“I would have pushed her a- like b- – – -h who are you????” barked anotherwhose video tweet about the Rihanna scam garnered more than 5.2 million views.
Others digitally abused the victims of the scam, insisting the real “Umbrella” singer wouldn’t allow people to freely fondle her growing baby bump.
“I mean, come on… do you think Robyn Rihanna Fenty would let any random woman off the street… rub her stomach?” asked a fan. “Rihanna would rather eat rusty nails than have a stranger kiss her pregnant belly.” agreed with another.
And if it’s the Barbados-born singer uncanny openness to tummy rubbing didn’t have enough of a clue, online fans noted that the scammer’s ability to speak perfect Portuguese should have been a clear sign that she was in fact not the real Rihanna — who is publicly known for only being fluent in English and Bayan Creole.
“The idea of Rihanna speaking perfect Portuguese out of nowhere is killing me.” chuckled one commenter on twitter. “Now I know they don’t think Rihanna just leveled up and learned Portuguese,” another interfered.
