Rihanna Postpones Malaysia Show

After reports that Rihanna accused longtime boyfriend Chris Brown of assault, representatives for the pop star said Feb. 10 that she had postponed her Feb. 13 show at Stadium Purta in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The show will be rescheduled to an unspecified date “in light of recent events involving Rihanna,” Pineapple Concerts said in a statement to The Associated Press.

The Kuala Lumpur gig originally drew controversy because of a clash between Rihanna’s costumes and Muslim-majority Malaysia’s strict rules on performers’ attire. Organizers said the “good girl gone bad” would skip the skimpy costumes for the show.

Brown and an unidentified woman allegedly began arguing while riding in a car following a pre-Grammy party Feb. 7, according to a police statement. The fight escalated after the duo got out of the car.

The Los Angeles Times cited law enforcement officials familiar with the case and other unidentified sources that Rihanna was the woman in question.

Although the report indicated the woman was injured, Brown was booked only on suspicion of making a criminal threat. He was released after posting $50,000 bail but a district attorney could expand the charges.

Rihanna and Brown were both no-shows at the Grammys Awards Feb. 8, where they were scheduled to perform and nominated for awards.

Wrigley suspended Brown’s ad campaign with the chewing gum company Feb. 9 until his criminal case is resolved.
