Dressed in white and wearing sunglasses, the Barbados-born singer gave vocal support to the two-time champions West Indies
Pop idol Rihanna lent glitz and glamour to the World Cup on Monday as she turned up in Chester-le-Street to watch the West Indies take on Sri Lanka.
"Look who came to #Rally with the #MenInMaroon today! Hey @rihanna!", the West Indies tweeted on their official account, along with photos of her watching the game in northern England.
Dressed in white and wearing sunglasses, the Barbados-born singer gave vocal support to the two-time champions, who have won just one match so far.
In the match between Sri Lanka and West Indies, the latter won the toss and opted to bowl first.
Rihanna, 31, was last month named the world's richest female musician by Forbes magazine.
In May, she launched a groundbreaking partnership with LVMH to launch a luxury fashion brand based in Paris that will make ready-to-wear clothes, shoes and accessories.
