Rihanna's Instagram account BACK UP after it was suspended for posting racy photo of her naked derriere
Rihanna saw her Instagram account suspended after she shared a racy photo on Tuesday.
The shot of the 26-year-old singer showing off her naked derriere by a swimming pool violated the social media site's rules. For several days all that could be seen when clicking on her badgalriri page was the note Page Not Found.
But on Monday her account was back up and hours later a rep for Instagram told MailOnline they had never actually taken down her page. 'This account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience,' the spokesperson said.
This was all that was seen over the weekend: When the 26-year-old's Instagram account was frozen, the message Page Not Found came up
The shot of the Diamonds singer's naked backside was from a photo shoot with French magazine Lui. The Grammy winner also shared a shot of her backside covered only by a black thong as she sat on the edge of a swimming pool dive board. That image appears to have been taken down as well.
She appeared topless on their cover in a shoot by Mario Sorrenti.
Though Rihanna had shared the image, on Monday the cover had been cropped in on so as not to show her naked chest.
Also on Monday Complex announced the star was not only managed by Roc Nation but was also on the label along with Jay Z and Rita Ora.

'If you wouldn’t show the photo or video you are thinking about uploading to a child, or your boss, or your parents, you probably shouldn’t share it on Instagram,' it states in Instagram’s community guidelines.
'The same rule applies to your profile photo. Accounts found sharing nudity or mature content will be disabled and your access to Instagram may be discontinued.'
However, the temporary disabling of the singer's Instagram account didn't deter her as she posted the snaps to her Twitter account shortly after.
And in a witty retort to Instagram she mocked up a more matronly image of herself captioned: 'Rih's next magazine cover if it was up to Instagram.'

In another shot for Lui, she wears just a net black G-string as she perches on the edge of a diving board.
It is less than a week after the singer was seen stripping down to her underwear for a glossy shoot in Vogue Brazil.
Rihanna proudly shared the image on her Twitter and Instagram pages, tweeting: ‘I am the G in Vogue!! Is it too late now?’ referring to the fact her head covers up one of the letters in the magazine’s logo.
The Stay hit-maker’s second cover shows her topless while smouldering at the camera with a short crop of wild, dark curls.
But it's not just Rihanna's risque photoshoots that has seen the pop star cause controversy.
The singer has been hit with a lawsuit from Geoffrey Keating, from Dublin, who claims the popstar made 'nauseatingly offensive' and false statements about him in an email sent to him and his wife last July.

He also claims the star used the same defamatory allegations via a telephone call to his sister.
Mr Keating, who worked for Rihanna on her Diamonds tour between October 2012 and July 2013, claims the comments have tarnished his reputation and damaged the future of his business.
The former bodyguard is seeking damages against the brunette beauty and he also wants her to publish a correction of the alleged defamation.
His lawyer, Gerald Kean, was granted permission yesterday to serve the singer with the legal papers at her home in New York City.
Mr Kean told TMZ.com: 'We're taking this battle very seriously. We are satisfied that the Irish Courts will see justice at the end of the day.
