The 'Diamonds' hitmaker, who had teased her vibe for this year's fashion's biggest event a few days before, has to skip the fundraiser as she's down with the flu.

AceShowbiz - Rihanna has left an empty seat and a hole in her fans' hearts with her no-show at the 2024 Met Gala. The Barbadian beauty may have left Navy hanging at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, May 6 as she had to sit this year's event out.

The nine-time Grammy winner, who had planned to attend the fashion's biggest event, canceled her appearance at the last minute due to illness. A source told PEOPLE on Monday that she decided to stay home as she's sick with the flu.

Rihanna has not addressed her canceled appearance at the Met Gala. A few days ago, she expressed her excitement for the event as she teased her vibe for the fundraiser. "I'm actually keeping it real simple this year. ... I think it's gonna come to what my makeup and what my hair is going to do," she told Extra as she celebrated the launch of her new Fenty Beauty Soft'lit Foundation at an event in Los Angeles, California, on April 26.

The Fenty Beauty founder additionally revealed that she had two gowns picked out. "We wanna play with that, but I have no idea what I'm gonna do with that," she added. Describing the two outfits, she said, "Very simple-ish ... compared to everything I have done." The singer further teased, "I am showing up for dinner. Shout out to Anna Wintour."

Unfortunately, fans may never know what Rihanna was planning to wear for this year's Met Gala.

Other celebrities who skipped the 2024 Met Gala were Blake Lively, Jared Leto and Katy Perry. Katy has explained her absence at the event after AI photos of her at the fundraiser went viral and duped fans.

On her Instagram page, the mother of one posted a screenshot of her mother's text message to her. "Ha Feather! Didn't know you went to the Met. What a gorgeous gown, you look like the Rose Parade, you are your own float lol," the text from Mary read.

The Grammy winner replied to her mother, "lol mom the AI got you too, BEWARE!" Sharing the fake images in the same post, she then clarified in the caption, "couldn't make it to the MET, had to work.

The "Daisy" singer also included a clip of her in what looks like a recording booth. While she appeared to be singing, she muted the footage, seemingly teasing new music that she's currently working on.
