Nivea's new C.E.O. Stefan Heidenreich is apparently no fan of Rihanna's saucy schtick, as the new head of the skin care company canned the Barbadian beauty from her endorsement gig this week, claiming Nivea needs a more family-friendly image.

Heidenreich -- calling future business with the Take A Bow singer a "no-go" -- said he doesn't "understand how Nivea can be brought into association with Rihanna" in reference to the ad campaign for Nivea’s 100th anniversary year featuring the music superstar.

"Nivea is a company which stands for trust, family and reliability," he said.

In the seven years she's been in the spotlight since her breakout hit Pon de Replay, the enigmatic stunner, 24, has been unabashed about her sexy, party-hearty lifestyle.

In response to the firing, the Shut Up And Drive singer tweeted Heidenreich's picture to her 23.8 million followers Tuesday with the caption, "No caption necessary."
