Rihanna`s Instagram account temporarily suspended

Washington: Rihanna`s account on Instagram has been temporarily suspended after a technical issue disabled the page.

The 27-year-old Barbadian recording artist had recently posted some risque pictures from her sexy spread in a French men`s magazine on her Instagram.com account and was forced to remove the saucy photographs because they violated the social media company`s rules on nudity, however, Instagram bosses insist that had nothing to do with the technical problems, reportedly.

The photo-sharing site issued a statement to apologize for the R and B star`s account being mistakenly caught in one of their automated systems which resulted in it being "very briefly disabled"

The ` Umbrella ` hitmaker has 12 million followers on Instagram.
