Rihanna’s face can clearly be seen in shots that show the "Umbrella" singer stripping provocatively for the camera, but other photos show only segments of a woman's naked body.
The most incriminating full-length shot appears to feature the sexy star partially clothed taking a photograph of herself in the mirror of a large hotel suite bathroom. The messages 'I love you' and 'I miss you' are written on the mirror.
The girl in the photo definitely looks like Rihanna, but the subject's face is covered by a BlackBerry phone camera.
The seven pictures led to Web sites like Imagehaven.net almost crashing as fans stormed the Internet looking for the scandalous photos, which reports suggest were taken at the London hotel in West Hollywood, where Rihanna once stayed with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
The new photos come just days after Rihanna made her first public appearance following an alleged fight with Brown in Los Angeles on the eve of the Grammy Awards in February.
The R&B star performed briefly alongside Kanye West at the Costume Institute Gala in New York on Monday.
Brown still faces jail time if he's found guilty of allegedly beating his then-girlfriend and threatening to kill her during the fight.
