Rihanna fired by Nivea's CEO due to her party girl image
Rihanna has been fired, and will no longer be the face of Nivea according to the company's new CEO Stefan Heidenreich. Rihanna's devil may care party girl image has finally caught up with her, this time costing her job as the face and spokesperson of Nivea. The company's new CEO Stefan Heidenreich announced that Rihanna is now a "no go." The reason Rihanna was let go from Nivea according to the Daily Mail is that Heidenreich stated to the German newspaper "Welt" that Rihanna's party-girl image "does not work with the 100-year-old brands more family friendly one." "I do not understand how to bring the core brand of Nivea in conjunction with Rihanna," Heidenreich said. "Nivea is a company which stands for trust, family and reliability." The Christian Post reported that Rihanna, 24, took to her Twitter account tweeting a response to Nivea's CEO's statement by posting his photograph on her official Twitter page alongside the caption "No caption necessary." Rihanna began working with Nivea in 2011 for the ad's 100th anniversary campaign. The pop singer is currently reported to be taking a break from her hectic work schedule, keeping in touch with nivea products for dry skin women fans around the world via Twitter, of course, and was recently rumored to have once again hooked up with her notorious ex Chris Brown while on a celebrity yacht party.
