Rihanna's plane delayed by Mexican earthquake

RIHANNA's ambitious 777 Tour was almost grounded by an earthquake on Wednesday (15Nov12).

The R&B star, who is hoping to perform in seven cities in as many days, faced a delay after her first show when a 6.2 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico City, prompting a backlog of flight problems.

Rihanna and her plane full of photographers, journalists and fans had to wait for the all clear before they could take-off after the first show on the 777 Tour.

The Umbrella hitmaker and her quirky posse eventually jetted off to Toronto, Canada, where Rihanna staged her second show on Thursday (15Nov12).

There was no such drama after that concert - but there was still a delay as Rihanna chose to chill backstage with her Battleship co-star Brooklyn Decker, who took a break from filming in the city to pay a visit, before boarding her plane bound for a Friday night (16Nov12) gig in Sweden.
