Rihanna has taken to Twitter to complain after being mobbed by fans at a train station in Paris.

The Talk That Talk singer found herself swamped by excited fans in Paris after she posted a picture online which revealed the time she would be arriving in the French city via Eurostar.

According to reports, the star's security team struggled to protect her from the crush of people in what French newspaper Le Parisien reportedly referred to as "a riot".

Rihanna tweeted afterwards: "I just had to fight my way out of a damn train station!!!"

She also wrote: "FYI, if u push me, you WILL get pushed back! Papz and crazies included!!!!"

In another post, the 24-year-old, who was in Paris for a guest performance with Coldplay, wrote: "The French are f****** insane!!!"

Rihanna's actions apparently sparked anger at Paris' Gare du Nord station.

The Sun quotes a security chief at the station as saying: "It was absolute chaos, and all Rihanna's fault. What Rihanna did was utterly irresponsible. There was genuine fear among other people at the station."
