Rihanna scraps Spanish festival gig

Clara 'Dolly' Braithwaite lost her battle with cancer and the Umbrella hitmaker shared her grief with her Twitter followers over the weekend.

The star went ahead with a show in Sweden on Saturday, but came under fire from fans for her shambolic performance, with many taking to Twitter to suggest she was drunk.

Rihanna has now decided to take time off and has cancelled her set at the Rock in Rio event.

Organisers of the festival have confirmed they are trying to organise a replacement for the grieving singer.
