Rude Gal? Donald Trump Slams Rihanna For Missing His Fundraiser

Vibe / February 22, 2011

Did Rihanna just piss off The Trump himself this past weekend? According to reports, the island bad gal was scheduled to perform at a cancer fundraiser sponsored by real estate mogul Donald Trump. Rih allegedly canceled hours before the event started, providing the excuse that she was suffering from bronchitis. However what’s really pissing Donald off is that Rihanna later went on to perform an 11-minute medley the next night at Sunday’s All Star Game halftime show.

Another songstress however, miss Jennifer Hudson to be exact, capped Donald’s steam by agreeing to perform last minute in Rihanna’s place. Here’s where things get even worse: Rihanna was spotted at the Two Kings Dinner (hosted by Jay-Z and Lebron James) the night she was to perform at Donald’s joint.

Donald went on record with the Palm Beach Post of his feelings toward the situation and said “I thought that (Rihanna bailing) was insulting to everyone, but for Rihanna to go to the All-Star game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect[…]Nothing was missed. Jennifer’s a beautiful girl. She came on her day off even though she performs almost every night. She is an unbelievable talent, and her voice is better.”

Rihanna would’ve been paid $500,000 had she gone through with the performance. With that type of dough we’re giving Rih the benefit of the doubt. There is such a thing as swift recoveries!
