Rihanna was caught up in a hotel evacuation at her hotel in London this morning (27th June).
The 'Talk That Talk' singer left the building with the rest of the guests at the Corinthia Hotel in the capital after a service elevator motor burnt out causing a smoke leak.
Public relations manager of the hotel, Clare Durnford told Capitalfm.com that although the incident was not serious, their strict fire policy regulations required a full evacuation of the building.
"At approximately 6.30am, one of the service elevator motors at Corinthia Hotel London burnt out," she confessed. "There was a slight discharge of smoke and because of our robust fire management policy, the alarms were activated and a full evacuation of the building was carried out.
"As a matter of procedure, the fire brigade were called to carry out full safety checks throughout the building. All guests were safely accounted for and were allowed back into the hotel soon after 7am."
