Rihanna Postpones Indonesia Show

RIHANNA has left fans in Indonesia "traumatised" after postponing a concert in the country for the second time, amid reports of a fight with boyfriend CHRIS BROWN.
The Umbrella hitmaker was due to perform in Jakarta on Thursday (12Feb09) but has been forced to pull out "because of an assault case involving Rihanna's boyfriend", according to tour promoter Showmaster.
Brown, 19, was arrested for felony battery after an incident with a woman - believed to be Rihanna - in a vehicle in Los Angeles in the early hours of Sunday morning (08Feb09).
It is the second time Rihanna has axed a show in the Indonesian capital - she cancelled a gig in November (08) following the issue of a travel warning by the Australian government after the executions of three men convicted of the 2002 bombings in Bali.
And the cancellation is said to have devastated her fans - and frustrated organisers.
Concert promoter Troy Reza Warokka says, "We spoke to (Rihanna representative) Tony Goldring of the William Morris Agency and he said the concert had to be cancelled because of an assault case involving Rihanna's boyfriend. This is her second postponement (in Indonesia). Her fans are traumatised and we've spent so much money on production and promotional materials."
Warokka has suggested that the 20-year-old may not be invited back to perform before the end of 2009, adding: "He (Goldring) offered to reschedule but we don't think we'll take it up, not this year at least."
Rihanna also postponed a sold-out concert in Malaysia on Tuesday (10Feb09) as a result of the assault incident.
Meanwhile, Kiss Kiss hitmaker Brown has taken yet another hit to his career - he's been dumped from two Valentine's Day (14Feb09) parties he was due to host in Arizona and replaced with Nelly.
