Rihanna is reportedly planning on taking a sabbatical from the music industry, taking a year off before recording her eighth studio album.
The claim was made by Ryan Seacrest on his morning radio show in the US - with the American Idol host claiming that RiRi wants to calm things down after her current Diamonds world tour.
Seacrest said: "She's been in this go mode for a while. Seven hit records in seven years.
"Sold-out tours, but sources say after this tour wraps, she plans to take up to a year off to unwind."
Her world tour started in the US last night and will arrive in the UK in June.
Rihanna opened up about her relationship with Chris Brown in a recent magazine interview.
