SHATTERED Rihanna nearly cancelled a concert after suffering a meltdown under the stress of her mega world tour.
The Bajan singer, 23, threw the wobbler just hours before she was due on stage in Dublin last Friday.
She only decided to perform after making a tearful phone call to mentor Beyonce, who was able to talk her round.
Rihanna went ahead with the concert as planned and wrote online afterwards: "I'm so light-headed!"
The star is suffering from exhaustion amid the stress of her gruelling ten-month, 101-date tour.
A source said: "She's just a young woman who just wants to have fun, but she was feeling pretty low.
"It's a mix of exhaustion and stress. She's been partying hard to take her mind off things, but there are days when she wakes up and doesn't even know where she is because of the travelling.
"It's no wonder she is feeling down."
Beyonce, 30, advised Rihanna to complete her tour commitments — then take a year off to relax.
The Crazy In Love diva took a break in 2009 to spend time with hubby Jay-Z. The source added: "She knows Rihanna needs downtime or she'll burn out."
