Rihanna was recently forced to cancel a third show on her Diamonds world tour due to an undisclosed illness, and fans are now speculating whether the Bajan singer is pregnant.
The 25-year-old pop star took to social networking site Instagram Tuesday where she expressed disappointment in having to cancel her Houston, Texas show. Less than one month ago, Rihanna canceled shows in Boston and Baltimore for similar reasons.
"I was sick since San Diego! I kept working because I thought two days off after the Vegas show would be enough time to recover and I f----- up, those were two days off from hell and today is not different!" an Instagram post read.
"I'm sad and disappointed about it! I had all kinds of plans for Houston!" she added.
Concert promoter Live Nation confirmed that both shows were canceled "as a result of illness," but further details have not been made available.
Critics claim Rihanna's Las Vegas show, which was held just days before the Houston cancellation, was subpar and a number of irate Twitter users claim the singer forgot lyrics and put on a lackluster performance. Fans are now speculating whether the Hollywood starlet is pregnant.
"Call me a conspiracy theorist, but ya think @rihanna keeps canceling concert dates because she's secretly pregnant with @chrisbrown's baby?" Hollywood blogger PerezHilton tweeted.
"'Im telling ya, Rihanna is secretly pregnant with Chris' baby, that's why she cancelled our Boston concert over "Laryngitis" Siren tweeted.
"She was a hot mess during her Vegas show! Looked weak and out of it, forgot lyrics...I think she's knocked up," Larissa tweeted.
In February Rihanna confirmed that she and on-and-off boyfriend Chris Brown will "probably have a kid" in an interview with Elle U.K.
The couple confirmed their reconciliation in January, four years after Brown, 23, assaulted the singer.
"You don't have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don't want to let go of it. I would definitely say that [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with," Rihanna told the magazine about being in love.
"Right now that's just what we want, a great friendship that's unbreakable," she said. "Now that we're adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I'm thankful for that."
