Rihanna - Trump Shot Down By Rihanna Rep Over Missed Show Jibe

RIHANNA's representative has shot down DONALD TRUMP's scathing comments over the star's failure to play at his fundraiser gig, insisting she was ordered by doctors not to travel.
The Umbrella hitmaker was due to perform at Trump's show in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday (19Feb11), but she pulled out due to sickness.
Trump was infuriated when Rihanna went on to sing at the NBA All-Star basketball game in Los Angeles the following day (20Feb11).
The entrepreneur fumed: "I thought that (cancelling) was insulting to everyone. But for Rihanna to go to the (NBA) All-Star game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect."
Now the singer's rep has spoken out to clarify why she wasn't able to attend Trump's bash, telling Access Hollywood, "Rihanna was recovering (from) bronchitis and her doctor advised her not to get on a plane as she would risk losing her voice and damaging her vocal chords. She feels terrible she couldn't attend but was so grateful Jennifer Hudson graciously stepped in."
Rihanna scrapped another fundraising gig earlier this month (Feb11) ahead of her Grammys performance as she battled illness.
