Rihanna is now responding to Donald Trump, who said the singer cancelling a performance he set up "insulting." Trump said he hired Rihanna to perform at a
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute fundraiser in Florida but she
canceled claiming that she
was ill. After seeing her perform at the NBA All-Star game a day later, Trump said “I thought that (Rihanna bailing) was
insulting to everyone."
Now Rihanna, through her representative, has responded saying that she was sick and her doctor advised her not to get on a plane and go perform.
“Rihanna was recovering [from] bronchitis and her doctor advised her not to get on a plane as she would risk losing her voice and damaging her vocal chords."
“She feels terribly she couldn’t attend but was so grateful Jennifer Hudson graciously stepped in." (statement)
