Rihanna is in Ireland filming her new video, We Found Love, with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris. She got permission to use one of Irish farmer Alan Graham fields and proceeded to work on her music video. That’s when Graham rode up on his tractor and told her to cover up. When he talked about the incident later, it wasn’t her lack of a top that he talked about but her behavior. He said, ‘Her behaviour was inappropriate.’ So we don’t really know what happened, but we know Rihanna can get down and dirty, so who knows.
Anyway, the Irish farmer says he expressed his concerns and they shook hands and parted on good terms.
Mr Graham, who owns 60 acres at Clandeboye outside Bangor was just about to head for home when he saw Rihanna in her red patterned bikini.
He said today: “I realised things had got to a stage which were not acceptable to me, Things became inappropriate and I asked the film crew to stop.
“I never heard of Rihanna until someone called me requesting the use of my land. I knew on Monday who she was. Someone explained she was as big as it gets as far as pop stars were concerned. I am a bit illiterate about those issues.
“If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say: ‘Enough is enough. You are not entitled to do that’.
“There was no firm arrangement about borrowing the field. Everybody was done on an ad hoc basis. My expectations were not made clear to him (the man who requested use of the field), and everything that was going to take place was not made clear to me. To be fair to the people involved in asking for the field, I don’t think they were aware either of what would take place.
“There was no agreement as such beforehand. I have not received any payment at this moment in time and I don’t know if I will be paid. I don’t want to say what I said to Rihanna or what she said to me. We had a conversation. We shook hands and parted company on good terms.”
Rihanna moved her filming to Belfast where she has three sold-out shows this weekend at the Belfast’s Odyssey Arena.
