Rihanna was in Nice, France, during the Bastille Day attack Thursday, but her rep confirms to Billboard that "she's safe."

The singer is in the French Riviera city because she was scheduled to perform Friday night at the Allianz Stadium in Nice, France, as part of her Anti World Tour, though the president of Nice tweeted that the concert has been canceled, along with other events in the city.

At least 84 people are dead and reports count up to 100 who have been injured after a truck drove on to the sidewalk and plowed through a crowd of revelers who had gathered to watch fireworks in the French resort city of Nice, France, on Thursday, in what officials and eyewitnesses described as a deliberate attack. The gathering was part of a celebration for Bastille Day, which is a French national holiday commemorating the storming of the Bastille and the unity of the French people.
