Rihanna is reportedly head over heels with one of our stalwart high street shoe shops.
But would anyone have guessed it would be Clarks?
Known more for their comfort than style, that is precisely what has won the singer over; so much so that she even bought everyone in her family a pair for Christmas.
The star last week showed off an array of weird and wonderful on-stage outfits as she performed at the 02 Arena - and vertiginous heels were all part of the display.
A source told The Sun: "She's been wearing towering heels throughout her Loud tour which has taken its toll on her feet.
"She's been suffering all sorts of aches and pains so she's going easy on her feet while she's off.
"She loves Clarks so she thought she'd treat her family to a pair each."
She even took to Twitter to sing their praises, writing: "Clarke's me prefer... Clarke's for de summer, Clarke's for de winter! Clarke's for the sun, Clarke's for de water!!! #Barbados"
Well we never...
