Then, unbelievably, the singer tweeted out a composite “Who Wore It Best”-style photo of Alexis and herself wearing their jumpsuits and captioned it simply with an emoticon of a sad face.

"I picked that outfit because my idol had worn it. I loved her," Alexis said, but since Rihanna's tweets mimicking Carter's outfit hit the web, she's taken steps to remove the 'Unapologetic' singer from her life.
