Rihanna's new video too steamy for France

Rihanna's We Found Love music video has been banned in France.

The video - which details a destructive relationship between a couple, played by the Barbadian beauty and model Dudley O'Shaughnessy - can only be broadcast after 10pm because their love scenes were deemed too "suggestive" to watch before the watershed.

The promo has previously been slammed after it appeared to allude to the abusive relationship Rihanna had with her former boyfriend, Chris Brown, who pleaded guilty to assault in 2009, by showing the 23-year-old star and Dudley raving with friends, fighting and getting intimate with one another.

Filming of the controversial mini-movie also angered a farmer in Belfast, Northern Ireland, earlier this year when he kicked Rihanna and her film crew out of his field because he was unhappy with her skimpy outfit.

Devout Christian Alan Graham said at the time: "If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say, 'Enough is enough'.

"I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God."

However, Rihanna is proud of the promo, tweeting recently: "We've never done a video like this before.

This is probably one of the deepest videos I've ever done. It's all about love and love being like a drug. You definitely get that from this.

"The good feeling of it and the dangers of it. That's what this video is about."
