OMG Yahoo! reports — Chris Brown confused many, many observers on Tuesday, after a photo emerged of the singer showing off a sizable new neck tattoo — which at first glance seemed to potentially portray his ex girlfriend and/or a battered woman. A rep for the 23-year-old “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer subsequently denied that the fresh ink was a rendering of either Rihanna, 24, or any battered female.
However he has confirmed that it is NOT an homage of Rihanna despite the eerie resemblance as some have said it to be. He stated that “His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” the rep told ABCNews.com as controversy swirled around the photo. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.” (source NY Daily News)
This is what he tweeted (see below). My personal opinion is that this has NOTHING to do with Rihanna whatsoever, but hey GOSSIP sells.
