Rihanna - Rihanna cancels Texas show

Rihanna had to cancel a concert in Texas last night (15.04.13).

The 'Stay' singer was forced to postpone the show in Houston - the third she has had to pull out of on her Diamonds World Tour - after coming down with an undisclosed illness, thought to be a returning bout of laryngitis.

A statement issued by promoters Live Nation said: ''Unfortunately, as a result of illness Rihanna is unable to perform this evening at Houston's Toyota Center.

''Fans are instructed to retain their tickets to this event pending rescheduled show date information.''

Shows in Boston and Baltimore were cancelled when Rihanna contracted laryngitis and flu last month, after which she was reportedly warned by doctors to cut down on her partying.

A source said at the time: ''Rihanna's illness was so severe that doctors warned it could take months for her to fully recover - there were worries that she'd have to cancel her entire tour.

''[doctors] told her she needs to make some serious lifestyle changes, or risk this happening again.

''This has given her a scare. But Rihanna knows it's partly self-inflicted.

''She loves to smoke, drink and stay up late. Her body was bound to need a break at some point. She's now on a mission to start looking after herself.''

Rihanna's next concert, in Dallas, Texas tonight (16.04.13) is still scheduled to go ahead.

All three cancelled shows will be rescheduled.
