She may have given a show stopping performance on the X Factor stage but the star won't be doing the same on the judging panel, contrary to reports.
It was reported over the weekend that Simon Cowell was keen to recruit the 'Diamonds' star alongside her rumoured on/off beau Chris Brown. A source claimed to The Sun:
"Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality. As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters.
"The US X Factor has improved on the first season’s ratings but it’s got some way to go to reach Simon’s expectations. Adding Chris to the panel will certainly create a talking point."

However, whilst there may be a space on the X Factor USA now that L.A. Reid has decided to quit the show, neither Rihanna or Chris will be taking his seat after a spokesperson for Simon Cowell insisted that he won't be meeting up with the Bajan beauty as "this story is completely made up."
Meanwhile, the executive producer for the UK version of the X Factor has revealed to the Guardian that he would love to see Simon back on the panel.
He said: "There is not one element we will not be looking at carefully - from judges and start times to auditions and glitzy productions.
"I'd love him (Simon) to come back. He's the best judge in the world, Never say never! If we can find a way to reintroduce him, we will. But it is impossible for him to be in two places."
