Rihanna’s 777 tour was more than just a nightmare for the 200 people on board, it also cost her a good amount in airport fines.
As if carting a full load around the world wasn’t pricey enough, the 24-year-old incurred an extra bill of over $300,000 for repeatedly showing up late to board her plane.
“Every hour that goes by she has to pay for flight clearance on runways and also incurs costs of the private airport teams, customs, baggage handlers, and security,” revealed a source.
After being held captive for seven days, traveling through seven countries, and watching seven shows, the crew of label reps, journalists, and fans returned back to America, earlier in the week.
During her tour stop in London, Rihanna made time for another gig, attending a tree-lighting ceremony, for which she was allegedly paid $8 million.
Her Unapologetic album is expected to debut atop the Billboard album charts selling between 240k-260k units over a week. “Diamonds” the first single off the album reached No. 1 making it her 12th single to do so. She is tied with Madonna and the Supremes, the only two other acts to grab that many No. 1 singles.
