French lady who looks like Rihanna says she's struggling to find love as men only 'fantasies' about the singer (Photos)

A French lady who looks like Rihanna is struggling to find a man as most men who came to her were 'fantasizing' about the singer.

Yna Sertalf, 23, who originates from Martinique in the West Indies, but lives in France, is said to have realised that she looked like the Barbadian singer after her uncle brought it to her attention she was just a teenager.

According to Yna, her mum once mistook a photo of Rihanna, 31, on a magazine cover as her when she saw it.

Yna said: 'I've been single for about a year, but I would never put myself in a relationship with someone who sees me as 'Rihanna' and not 'Yna'.

'When I talk to someone and hear 'Rihanna' too many times [when we're hanging out], I give up [on them] because I can't determine if the person fantasizes about Rihanna or if they really want to know me. That's why I'm single.

'I have been mistaken for Rihanna quite a lot. This happens to me usually when I'm in tourist places.

'I remember a woman saw me and was being shy. She assumed I spoke English and spoke to me to ask if she could take a picture, and I agreed. It wasn't the first time.

'But then she asked me, 'Are you really Rihanna?' with a face full of joy.

'I felt like I was breaking her heart by telling her no, but I find it pretty funny to be in these situations.

'My friends and family find it funny too. Once my mom received a magazine in her mailbox with Rihanna on the cover and she sent it to me, saying 'I thought it was you.'

'The funniest thing is when people talk about you thinking they're being discrete. I always smile at them to show them that I heard. It's embarrassing.

'But when little kids scream at their parents, 'It's Rihanna', it's lovely. Sometimes even if we tell them I'm not her, they think we're lying.

'I always tell the truth straight away. Because I am fatter than her and I speak French people notice that I'm not her quickly enough.'

Wow! Nigerian photographer, Temitope JohnSaw, shares photo of Bisi Alimi and hubby and asked if they were in the Ethiopian plane crash

Reacting to Temitope's vile post, Bisi wrote;

''“Hate is too much a burden to bear”- MLK. It is not so much that someone wishes another death because they love differently from them, but it is about using their hate to mock dead. Just while the families of the dead are mourning, this man uses the situation to wish us dead. I repeat; hate is too much a burden to bear.''.

Temitope has since deleted the post.

Kim Kardashian is helping a man by paying his rent for the next five years following his release from prison

Kim Kardashian is offering to help former prisoner Matthew Charles stand on his feet following his release from prison.

The reality TV star, who advocates for prison reform and helped secure the release of Alice Johnson from jail last year, will be paying Matthew Charles' rent for the next five years.

New prison reform laws saw Charles released after serving 20 years of his 35-year sentence for non-violent drug and weapons charges. Kim reportedly reached out to Charles and offered to help pay his rent and find him a "stable place to live". Us Weekly reports that Charles is planning on saving to be able to buy a home of his own while Kim takes care of his rent for the next few years.

Since his release, Charles has bought a car, been staying with a friend in the city's River Glen neighborhood and found full-time employment with Families Against Mandatory Minimums — a nonprofit justice reform advocacy group.

But when he went to apply to rent a town home last Tuesday, he was denied on the basis of his criminal history and his lack of credit after being incarcerated for more than 20 years. So Kim decided to step in and save the day.

Charles later took to Facebook to thank Kim, saying:

I just received the most wonderful news tonight that I just had to share with everyone.

Kim Kardashian-West heard about my situation, was moved and has decided to help me. And to me in the most unbelievable way.

Kim did not do this for attention or publicity, but I had to share it, because it’s [too] good not to, and my heart is about to burst with happiness, that I wish you to rejoice in this news with me.
