Rihanna pregnant? Don’t believe everything you read on the internet, folks. Except this, of course. A source close to the singer has told HollywoodLife.com that Rhi Rhi did not cancel recent tour dates because she’s pregnant – despite rumors to the contrary. “[Rihanna] is just sick, and that’s really it,” said the source. “I know, that’s not a good enough reason because everybody wants some drama and the rumors that she’s pregnant to make the rounds, but sorry, not this time. She’s not pregnant!”

Official statements from Rihanna’s reps suggest that the singer is simply suffering from a recurring bout of flu and laryngitis and a friend of the singer has revealed that she’s upset about letting her fans down: “One thing [Rihanna] hates the most is not being on stage,” the friend explained. “That’s where she belongs, and she knew that … since she was a kid. So you better believe that this sickness … is killing her in more ways than one.” She’s certainly been quiet on Twitter for the last few days, whereas she’s usually an avid communicator, so perhaps the statements are correct and she really is just unwell.

Rihanna cancelled her show in Boston on March 10 and another two days later. More recently, she had to cancel her April 15 and 16 shows in Houston and Dallas respectively, reportedly due to her recurring illness. A number of reports have suggested that Rihanna has brought the illness on herself as a result of her hard-partying ways.
