Rihanna‘s concert scheduled in Jakarta Thursday has been canceled, the show’s tour promoter has announced – citing “an assault case involving Rihanna’s boyfriend,” singer Chris Brown, say published reports.
On Tuesday, her show in Malaysia was similarly canceled.
The Jakarta cancellation marks the second time Rihanna has pulled out of a concert in the Indonesian capital. In November, the show didn’t go on after the Australian government issued a travel warning in the wake of the executions of the three men convicted of the 2002 Bali bombings.
