London: Rihanna turned to Beyonce Knowles for advice after she reportedly had a meltdown, hours before her concert in Dublin during the weekend.

According to the Sun, the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker threatened to cancel her Dublin show and was only able to carry on after a tearful phone call to the former Destiny’s Child singer.

The R and B star advised her younger counterpart to continue with the tour, but to take a year off when she’s finished to recuperate.

The Barbadian singer has been rundown by extensive touring recently.

The 23-year-old singer is currently working her way through a mammoth 101-date world tour.

After the show she took to Twitter to post, “I’m so light-headed!”

“She’s just a young woman who just wants to have fun, but she was feeling pretty low,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling the newspaper.

“It’s a mix of exhaustion and stress.

“She’s been partying hard to take her mind off things, but there are days when she wakes up and doesn’t even know where she is because of the travelling.

“It’s no wonder she is feeling down,” the source added.

The singer has 16 more dates to fulfil as part of her Loud tour, seven of which are in the UK.
