The 'Where Have You Been' singer is said to be facing hefty fines over delaying her tour departures.

Rihanna has reportedly racked up almost £200,000 worth of fees so far for late airport departures on her '777' minitour around the globe.

The 'We Found Love' singer has been performing across the world singing in a different country every night to promote her new album 'Unapologetic', but is said to have accumulated hefty fines for delaying her plane departures.

Rihanna's '777' tour kicked off last week and sees her traveling around the world alongside a host of fans and journalists, but her team are said to have become "frantic" because of the Bajan star's insistence at delaying her performances in each city.

"Rihanna delays going on stage which throws out the whole schedule," a source told The Sun this week. "It's a reaction to the fact that every second of her time is accounted for by organisers.

"She likes to be in control," they explained. "Her team have been making frantic calls throughout the nights to the airports.

"Every hour that goes by she has to pay for flight clearance on runways and also incurs costs of the private airport teams, customs, baggage handlers and security. The tour will end up costing her a fortune."

The '777' tour arrived in Berlin, Germany last night and Rihanna will perform this evening (19th November) in London before playing a final show in New York City.

Rihanna is also scheduled to perform at the Christmas lights switch on at Westfield Stratford in East London tonight.
