Rihanna's 777 Tour 'Could Cost Her A Fortune'

Rihanna has reportedly found herself in a spot of bother on her 777 tour, after racking up fines of almost £200,000 for late airport departures.

According to The Sun, almost every one of RiRi's private jets has been delayed due to bad time keeping, with the Diamonds singer herself having to pay the bill.


A source told the newspaper: "Rihanna delays going on stage, which throws out the whole schedule.

“It’s a reaction to the fact that every second of her time is accounted for by organisers. She likes to be in control.

They continued: “Her team have been making frantic calls throughout the night to the airports.

“Every hour that goes by she has to pay for flight clearance on runways and also incurs costs of the private airport teams, customs, baggage handlers and security. The tour will end up costing her a fortune.”

Since kicking off the jaunt last week, the 24-year old has played gigs in five of the seven cities, including Berlin last night (18th November) - where she wore a mesh outfit bearing a cannabis leaf design, completing her look with leather hotpants and thigh-high boots.

She's set to roll into London tonight (19th November), before wrapping the short stint in New York tomorrow.
