Rihanna has cancelled her headline show in Houston, Texas as part of her Diamonds world tour.

Her promoter, Live Nation said that the reason the concert was called off was as "a result of illness", however there has been no word about the cancelled gigs from Rihanna on Twitter where she is normally eager to talk to her fans.

This is the third concert that the Grammy-award winning singer cancelled, following Baltimore and Boston last month when she suffered from laryngitis.

At the time she tweeted her fans to apologise: "This is the hardest thing for me to deal with!"
