Rihanna Kicked Out of Mosque in Abu Dhabi for Taking Sexy Photos

Rihanna was asked to leave an Abu Dhabi mosque over the weekend after she was spotted wearing red lipstick and posing for sexy photos at the sacred site.

Though the singer covered her head and wore black, her garment was extremely tight and her makeup and jewelry violated the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre's terms.

"The Centre would like to point to a personal visit incident that was carried out by 'a prominent singer' to the mosque. The singer did not make arrangements with the mosque’s management prior to her visit and had used an entrance that is not intended for visitors," the mosque said in a statement, as translated by 7 Days in Dubai.

"Despite being directed to enter through the visitors' entrance to take a standard tour of the mosque, the singer stayed outside to take some photos. She was asked to leave once it became apparent that some of the photographs she took were not in compliance with the terms of the mosque."

The mosque is the largest in the United Arab Emirates.

Rihanna has been causing a stir on many of the international stops on her "Diamonds World Tour." Last month, she tweeted a photo of herself posing with a slow loris — an endangered primate — in Phuket, Thailand,

The photo led to the arrest of two animal keepers, who were not supposed to be charging tourists to take pictures with the squirrel-like creature.

The Barbadian singer also posted some racy tweets about her visit to an illegal X-rated club in Phuket, which reportedly triggered a law enforcement investigation, according to the Bangkok Post.
