RIHANNA HAS BEEN asked to leave Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque by its overseers after she posed for photographs considered to be at odds with the “sanctity” of the site.

Rihanna hasn’t publicly responded to the actions by staff at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Her show took place on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.

Photos posted to Rihanna’s instagram account show the singer posing on white marble, dressed fully in black, with her hair covered according to the mosque’s guidelines.

The mosque statement, published  today in local newspapers, said Rihanna was in an area normally off limits for visitors.

It says the fashion-style photo session violated rules on the “status and sanctity of the mosque.”

The mosque is a major tourist site in the United Arab Emirates’ capital.
