Rihanna Pregnancy Rumours Denied After Illness Causes Tour Show Cancelations

18 April 2013, 10:46

The 'Diamonds' singer is not pregnant, a close friend of the Bajan star has revealed.

Reports Rihanna is pregnant have been denied by a source close to the singer, after the rumour mill went into overdrive following her recent tour show cancellations.

The 'We Found Love' singer was forced to back out of two shows on her 'Diamonds' tour this week due to a bout of flu and laryngitis.

Rihanna cancelled shows in both Houston and Dallas, Texas this week (15th and 16th April), fueling rumours she may have been expecting her first child with boyfriend Chris Brown.

However, a source close to the Bajan star says she is simply unwell and says there is no truth to claims she is pregnant.

"[She] is just sick, and that's really it," a source revealed to Hollywood Life this week. "I know that's not a good enough reason, because everybody wants some drama and the rumours that she's pregnant to make the rounds, but sorry, not this time!

"She's not pregnant!" the source categorically announced.

The pop star couple were recently embroiled in a series of stories about a supposed split between the pair, before they took to Instagram to show that everything is still good between them.

Rihanna's 'Diamonds' world tour is set to continue with a show in Tampa, Florida tomorrow (19th April).
