Interestingly, Spin.com has pointed out tattoo’s overwhelming resemblance to the widely circulated 2009 picture of Rihanna issued by police after she had been badly battered by her ex-boyfriend.
But Rihanna said in a recent interview that she has forgiven him.
“I thought I hated Chris, and I realised it was love that was tarnished and looked like hate. Because it was ugly, it was angry, it was inflamed, it was tainted. I realised what it was, was I had to forgive him because I cared about him still. And the minute I let go of that I started living again.”
But the rep of “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer told GossipCop that his new ink “is not Rihanna”, The Huffington Post reported.
