One of the things we love most about Rihanna is her ability to save face in public by sticking to the real story. Addressing the scandal she faced after the Chris Brown incident (as if that weren't enough), Rihanna says that when nude photos of her were leaked online by an old flame earlier this year, "It was humiliating and it was embarrassing." Here's how Rihanna handled the worst part, which she says was "...my mom having to see that." Yikes!

Rihanna's mom Monica Fenty received a special delivery out of the blue right before Mother's Day last May. It was a bouquet of flowers to prepare her for the news that hit the press about Rihanna's nude photos that an ex-boyfriend had leaked online. Rihanna has boldly told girls that they should take naked pictures for their boyfriends, but her tune was a little more sheepish when her mom, who's an accountant in Barbados, got involved.
Fortunately Rihanna's mama was forgiving. Rihanna says, "I was nervous [but] when the world is against me she's always there supporting."
