For months there have been rumors linking Rihanna and Chris Brown to an alleged sex tape and photographs taken at the peak of their relationship. In May part of that rumor became a reality when 'alleged' nude photographs of Rihanna leaked on the net to be viewed by millions.
Over the weekend a tape, taken in poor lighting, hit the net with a note stating that additional footage would be released June 22 -- the date of Chris Brown's scheduled hearing in Los Angeles on felony assault charges. According to fans of explicit video pornography the nearly 30 sec. video purported to be Rihanna is a fake. In fact, some believe the video is from a tape recorded by porn star Lavish Styles who bears striking resemblance to Rihanna.
The alleged sex tape comes just weeks after Rihanna allegedly lost a nearly guaranteed spread in Vogue magazine.
Sources close to the deal told Star! Magazine that Vogue Editor In Chief Anna Wintour had given Rihanna the indication that the spread was guaranteed but once the 'alleged' nude photographs appeared online Wintour backed out.
According to the same source, "Anna hasn't returned any of her calls. Rihanna's so upset. She hopes the people at Vogue change their minds."
