On Thursday, Former President Donald Trump picked a fight with fashion icon and pop star Rihanna.
“Without her ‘Stylist’ she’d be NOTHING. Bad everything, and NO TALENT!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
Trump was responding to a post from his former White House physician, Ronny Jackson, who accused Rihanna of “spewing degenerate filth.”
“Why is the NFL showcasing this crap? Rihanna SHOULD NOT be the halftime performer!!” Jackson, who is now a member of Congress for Texas, wrote in a Truth Social post earlier the same day.
In his post, Jackson referenced an August 2020 incident in which Rihanna was seen posing in front of a spray-painted art installation. The centerpiece of the installation was a car that had the words “Fuck Trump” painted on it. Rihanna posted three photos on Twitter at the time, including two of herself sitting in front of the car.

Rihanna, who’s built a music, fashion, and beauty empire, did not respond to Trump and Jackson as of press time.
While she, like many celebrities, does have a stylist and creative director — Jahleel Weaver, who has worked with her for more than a decade — the singer is known for being a fashion industry staple. She also has her own clothing brands, Fenty and Savage x Fenty.
She is slated to perform at the Super Bowl’s halftime show on Sunday, her first performance in years.
Representatives for Rihanna, Weaver, Trump, and Jackson did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
