The pop star makes a statement about the terror attack in France.

In the wake of the Bastille Day attack in Nice, France, Rihanna has canceled a concert at the city's Allianz Stadium.

The singer's rep confirmed to PEOPLE that she was safe as Rihanna took to Instagram to let fans know that the concert had been canceled and to send her condolences to the victims and their families. 

At least 84 people were killed when a truck drove through a crowd during Bastille Day celebrations. The driver drove about a mile before being killed by police. The president of the region called the attack "the worst tragedy in the history of Nice."
