Rihanna finally arrives in London after delay

Rihanna has finally touched down in London two weeks after delaying a trip to Britain so she could spend more time with her family.

The Umbrella star called off her visit earlier this month (Jun12) prompting gossips to speculate about her health and that of her grandmother, who is battling cancer in a New York hospital.

The singer, who is scheduled to shoot a reality TV show in the U.K. this summer (12) quickly downplayed the drama, taking to Twitter.com to explain she simply wanted to hang out with friends and family following a lengthy time away from home.

And after spending Sunday (17Jun12) with her ailing grandmother Dolly, Rihanna hopped on a plane bound for Britain.

Announcing her whereabouts via Twitter.com, Rihanna wrote, "I'm in LONDON b**chesssss... I didn't wanna leave NY! I kept missing my flights."
