After grabbing the headlines a few days ago for her topless antics in Northern Ireland, Rihanna is now rumoured to have gone into hiding.

According to her security staff, she was so unnerved by the attention in Belfast that she threatened to pull the plug on the shooting of a video for her new single, "We Found Love."

Apparently, during the shoot on Monday and Tuesday, the traffic from Belfast to Bangor Road was brought to a standstill and upto a thousand people packed themselves into New Lodge in Belfast to watch the shoot.

She has since asked the crew to respect her privacy and filming continued on a closed set.

Rihanna is all set to perform at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, in three concerts later in the week.

As one of the most sought after entertainers in the business today, she has sold more than 20 million albums and 60 million singles worldwide.
