LOS ANGELES, April 30 (UPI) -- Rihanna has been feuding with Instagram following the company's threat to ban her from the image sharing site for violating its rules against nudity.

The conflict began Tuesday when the Barbadian singer shared several photos from her photo shoot with a French magazine Lui on the site. The provocative pictures find Rihanna posing topless and, in one instance, bottomless next to a pool.

The singer removed the pictures soon after sharing them after the site reportedly warned her to tone down the nudity if she wanted to keep her account.

Since the incident, the "Pour It Up" crooner has been posting several images on Instagram mocking the site for their warning.

She also instructed fans to visit her Twitter page where she was allowed to share the nude pictures Instagram made her delete.
