RihannaScandalous photos of a woman appearing to be Rihanna surfaced on the web a few years back. While many assumed the pictures to be real, confirmation was never obtained. Until now.

Thanks to an inquisitive tweet from a breathless fan, we now know the topless pics seemingly depicting Rihanna are actually her.

Earlier today, a Rihanna fan, who goes by @PinaRihanna, tweeted to her idol, "Heeey boo! What is thiss?" and linked to the sultry photo. Despite the fact @PinaRihanna sends tweets to Rihanna on an almost hourly basis, this one caught the pop star's attention, prompting a reply.

"That would be... ME," Rihanna confirmed, adding, "when I was skinny!"
