Pop star Rihanna has blasted reports that her being sick is the reason for cancelling a trip to London.

The Barbadian singer was due to appear on Graham Norton’s show on June 15 but pulled out this week.

She told fans on Twitter that reports of her being ill were “Nonsense!”.

She said: “I pushed my trip to London back to go spend time with my family! Sorry kiddos.”

The star is also currently involved in a UK TV show for Sky Living to find a top fashion designer, the winner of which will create an outfit for her headline appearance at the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park on June 24.

Rihanna is a regular visitor to London and has been known to travel around by Tube during her time in the city.

As well as Wireless, she is also due to headline Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend later this month.
