Rihanna Cancels UK Trip, Explains Why On Twitter

UPDATE-Rihanna has reportedly canceled a scheduled appearance on next week’s London based program the Graham Norton Show. (See her updated response below) The 24-year old singer was also booked for a 10-week stay in the UK to film a TV show for Sky Living to choose a fashion designer. The eventual winner would design an outfit for Rihanna’s upcoming appearance at the Wireless Festival in London on June 24th.

It seems however that the Barbadian singer has backed out of both commitments. The June 15th appearance on Graham Norton is definitely canceled but questions still surround her 10-week stay.

According to the UK Sun, RiRi’s management cited “sickness” as her reason.

“She canceled her trip and all work commitments in the UK at the very last minute, which is very unlike her. She has been hitting it hard for months. She smokes, drinks and parties hard on top of work commitments.”

Despite the rumors, Sky Living, who produces the fashion show insists Rihanna is still heavily involved in the project and even the entertainer shrugged off the rumors when she tweeted,

“Keep your eyes on the finish line and not on the turmoil around you”.

UPDATE: Rihanna tweeted boldly:  “Nonsense! I’m not sick! I pushed my trip to London back to go spend time with my family! Sorry kiddos.”
