Why 2012 has been a dramatic year for Rihanna
Rihanna's 2012 has been crammed full of drama - not a day went by when she wasn't in the papers!
The most potent reports surrounding the singer were to do with her on-and-off relationship with her former flame Chris Brown and the latest rumours suggest that the pair have now broken up. For good.
Rihanna posted a 'R Card' on Instagram which said: "Being single sucks. The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f**k I want to do." Could this really be the end for Rihanna and Chris?
This type of drama is nothing new for the singer though - from her celebrity friendships to her raunchy performances, we take a look back at her action-packed year in pictures.
