So last week Rihanna almost got banned from Instagram. And in the latest installment of the Rihanna-Instagram files it looks like the site has had enough with the Pour It Up singer's antics, going as far as to deactivate her account.

The first time Rihanna’s account was temporarily deactivated Instagram released a statement saying it was a technical glitch, "This account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience." A few hours later, her account was back up again.

But just as we thought all was settled, her account has been taken down again. So as of now, there is no ‘badgalriri’. There will be no scantily-clad, weed-smoking holiday selfies by Rihanna to feed our Instagram timeline. 

Or could it be that Rihanna is tired of all this Insta-drama and is taking a break from social media?  Either way, come back, Riri. Instagram is so boring without you. Whose Instagram #ootd are we going to be inspired by now?
