Rihanna in Dubai

Rihanna reveals why she cancelled her Dubai gig

US pop princess Rihanna has revealed why she pulled out of her planned May 28 Dubai gig, leaving thousands of fans disappointed.

The shaken star is apparently too traumatised to take to the stage on the same day that her ex Chris Brown faces court for his alleged assault on her. Rihanna was left battered and bruised after brown allegedly punched her during an argument in his car.

Yassin Matbouly, managing director of Vibe Entertainment Management Agency in the U.A.E. said he was told by Rihanna's management company that 'it was inappropriate timing for her to have a public concert'.

Fingers crossed she'll feel better and be joining us soon. We'll let you know as soon as we hear any news.
