Rihanna’s “Diamonds” world tour bus convoy came to a stop on Wednesday after border authorities reportedly “smelt” marijuana and conducted a full scale search.
According to TMZ, all 10 tour buses were pulled over at the border between Michigan and Canada. The buses were grounded at the Ambassador Bridge, which separates Windsor, Canada from Detroit.
Rihanna, who has been pictured in the past smoking what appeared to be weed, was not on any of the buses at the time.
However, a full inspection of the fleet by drug-sniffing dogs led to one member of the tour member being cited with a civil penalty after a “small amount” of weed was found in his possession.
The “Diamonds” tour has recently resumed after Rihanna was forced to pull out of two gigs — Boston and Baltimore — due to a bout of laryngitis. The 24-year-old returned to the stage in Philadelphia on March 14, reportedly looking and sounding better than ever as she punched her way through a set that included hits like “Please Don’t Stop The Music,” and “Stay.”
The Grammy winner, who recently went public about her re-established relationship with Chris Brown, does have one less thing to worry about though.
Rihanna’s restraining order against a crazed fan has been granted.
The star requested a permanent restraining order against Steveland Barrow after he was arrested breaking into the home of the singer’s neighbor.
At the time of the trespass, Barrow fell asleep in one of the houses beds. When police arrived he claimed that Rihanna had invited him to her home. Barrow was later charged with attempted theft of items from the home of the neighbor.
Under terms of Rihanna’s restraining order her stalker must stay at least 100 yards away from her location, and the iudge has converted the temporary restraining order into a three year permanent restraining order.
The singer has not released a public statement following the lawsuit.
Now that a weight’s been lifted off Rihanna’s shoulders, perhaps now she’ll get stuck into those “crazy” summer wedding plans with Chris Brown?
