Rihanna leaves Graham in lurch to be with family

RIHANNA has told fans she cancelled her trip to the UK so she could "spend time" with her family.

The Barbadian pop star was due to appear on Graham Norton's show next Friday, but pulled out this week.

She was scathing about reports that she was sick, telling fans on Twitter it was "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 London on June 24.

Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts will front the series where promising designers will be challenged to create outfits for musicians and celebrities.
