Barbadian princess Rihanna was set to perform this Tuesday night, April 16 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas but a recurring illness has yet again forced her to postpone another stopover in her Diamonds World Tour, meant to support her seventh album "Unapologetic". The 25-year-old entertainer's concert in Texas is the latest in a series of cancelled tour stops, following the deferent of her Boston and Baltimore shows in March.

Although it was not specified in the official press statement as to what illness the concert artist has been stricken with, a source revealed it is a returning case of colds and laryngitis which has held her down anew. "It sucks. She hates letting her fans down and it drives her crazy when [she's] not on stage. She feels bad, but what can she do? She just laying it down, trying to get better," the source said.

RiRi's cancelled performances came just a few weeks after she kicked off her tour back in March 8 at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo. She and her crew would have to keep the health ailments at bay as she still has a long way to go before she rounds up her world tour in October in South Africa.

The concert's promoter, Live Nation, has advised ticketholders to keep their stubs as the show will be rescheduled. Doing opening act chores on the show is A$AP Rocky, who along with pal Snoop Dogg, had accompanied Rihanna when she attended a friend's birthday party at the Marquee in Las Vegas last Friday, apparently that time she was still feeling well.
