Rihanna has revealed she was the victim of racist abuse in a hotel in Portugal.

The 23-year-old singer was checking out of the hotel after performing a concert in the country, when she claims she was subjected to the "most racist" comments about black women she had ever heard.

Rihanna took to Twitter to vent her rage, and revealed she had given the man a piece of her mind.

The Barbadian singer arrives in London on Tuesday to perform three gigs at London's O2 Arena tomorrow - the final dates of her Loud tour, before she takes some time off for Christmas.

Rihanna didn't let the abuse get her down though and described her gig in Portugal as "legendary".
