London: R&B star Rihanna was reportedly forced to walk through airport security scanner five times at Miami airport because she was wearing too much bling.

The 'Umbrella' hitmaker even had to take off her chunky boots as she attempted to catch her flight, reported Daily Mirror.

"Her problem was her overload of jewellery and she became increasingly irritated when she couldn't make it through," a source said.

Rihanna, 27, looked rocker chic for her flight wearing a rather sheer black maxi dress, featuring a holey design, a leather jacket and pesky accessories that set off the scanners.
