(yup, that's the bodyguard's hand in the picture, not some fan's that he failed to protected her from).

Let's hope he watches where he puts his hands.
Rihanna is on the Australian leg of her Loud tour and was earlier spotted leaving The Tool Shed sex shop, although her spokesperson was coy as to the exact nature of her purchases.

The singer recently sparked controversy with her outrageous video for her single S&M.
Clad in barely-there white latex, the singer pushes the boundaries in the strictly adults only video which was shot by Melina Matsoukas, who also directed the promo for her track Rude Boy.
The new video comes as an American model claimed she had a lesbian affair with a female singer, widely thought to be Rihanna.
While Tajah did not name the Barbadian as the star, she refused to deny that she was her former lover.
