Rihanna was in Nice, France preparing for a concert during the horrific terror attack that hit the city on Thursday night, which killed 80 people.
A truck sped through a crowded street during Bastille Day celebrations, running over dozens of people before spraying them with bullets. “France is badly hit,” President Francois Hollande said, adding, “We need to do everything we can to fight against [these attacks].”
Sources tell TMZ that Rihanna’s team is desperately trying to get her out of the city, and it seems unlikely that she will perform at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice on Friday.
She hasn’t released a statement on the status of her concert, nor has she tweeted, but a handful of other celebs have taken to social media to share their thoughts about the latest massacre:
Just heard the terrible news from Nice. I am shocked. My thoughts and prayers to all affected.
