Rihanna has revealed that she went swimming with sharks while on holiday in Hawaii. The ‘You Da One’ singer wrote on Twitter that her close encounter with the marine predators was “one of my favourite things I’ve ever done”.

However, sources claim that instructors had a less positive experience on the shark dive, thanks to Rihanna and her friends causing trouble during safety talks. “The group were taken out into the middle of the sea where they swam with the sharks in a special cage,” an insider told The Mirror. “But the girls messed around while the instructors were giving safety advice, with one throwing Lucky Charms cereal into the water and pretending to throw Rihanna in.

“Rihanna was mortified and went on a charm offensive. Before she left, she gave all the instructors a peck on the cheek.”

The Bajan star later posted an image to Twitter of her attempting to ride a land bound surfboard with two bikini-clad friends.

Rihanna is also suspected to have been smoking marijuana during her Hawaii trip. It has been claimed that she is using the vacation to get over the breakdown of her apparent secret fling with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.                       –DS
