Rihanna may be one of Pop music’s favourite stars but it seems that she and her team rubbed one of the U.K’s most powerful men the wrong way when they met before he was due to interview her.
Find out what happened below…
In an interview with RTE’s 2fm Eamonn Holmes revealed what happened when he attempted to speak to the star before he was set to interview her in the United Kingdom.
“I walked out to speak to her – I’m a believer in speaking to them in the waiting room before they begin – and said: ‘Hello Rihanna, my name is Eamonn and I’ll be doing the interview’. And I got a thump on my arm, a thump on my arm!” he revealed.
“I looked around and there’s this big burly guy standing beside her and he said: ‘Hey, you want to talk to Miss Rihanna you do it through me’. And he points to his eyes as in ‘look at me’. I said: ‘I’m really sorry, I didn’t realise you were on the programme.'”
When the bodyguard said he was not on the progamme, Holmes reveals he replied with: “Exactly. She is, so I’m going to talk to her and if you touch my – and I used a lot of expletives – arm once more I will break your arm and stick it up your a**.”
Despite the war of words Rihanna did appear, although Eamonn said she came out “with a blanket around her, two people practically carrying her in a sedan chair, out into the studio”.
The ‘Styled to Rock‘ star is yet to respond.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the only time Holmes has taken aim at her.
