Looks like Donald Trump wasn't covered by Rihanna's "Umbrella" this past Saturday for a benefit show at his club on Palm Beach Island. Mere hours before she was set to perform at Trump's Mar-A-Lago Club for the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute's 20th Annual Discovery Celebration event, she called in sick.
Reported in full over at the Juice, Trump was hopping mad when he saw the seemingly healthy R&B star perform the very next evening at the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles with Kanye West and Drake.
American Idol alum and Weight Watchers spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson filled in at the last minute. Trump made sure to add a thinly veiled dig about his absent star in his praise of Hudson: "But, 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."According to Molly McHale, a media spokesperson for the Dana-Faber
Cancer Institute, Rihanna -- who committed to perform back in October --
informed the event chairperson she would not be making it just 24 hours
before she was set to be in Palm Beach for the charity event."Her
doctors told Paul [Fireman] she was still sick from the bronchitis she
had during the Grammy's, and wasn't feeling well. By late evening on
Friday [February 18], she had canceled," said McHale.
Guess who just upped her chances to appear on Celebrity Apprentice?
