Keith Richards' daughter cancels gig

Keith Richards' model daughter Alexandra cancelled a gig in France this week (beg18Jul11) after her boyfriend was struck down with a nasty virus.

The model/DJ was due to play at a private party in St. Tropez on Wednesday night (20Jul11), but decided against flying in from Italy because her partner Nick Cohen had fallen sick with "Mediterranean flu" and been advised not to travel.

Richards' representative tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "Alexandra must be by his side. They were both looking forward to DJing. I don't know what the 'Mediterranean flu' is, but he did come down with flu-like symptoms and was advised not to travel."
