Rihanna's concert scheduled in Jakarta Thursday has been canceled, the show's tour promoter has announced – citing "an assault case involving Rihanna's boyfriend," singer Chris Brown, say published reports.

Rihanna, 20, withdrew from performing at the Grammys on Sunday – the same day Brown, 19, was arrested and charged with making a criminal threat. He was subsequently released on $50,000 bail.

On Tuesday, her show in Malaysia was similarly canceled.

The Jakarta cancellation marks the second time Rihanna has pulled out of a concert in the Indonesian capital. In November, the show didn't go on after the Australian government issued a travel warning in the wake of the executions of the three men convicted of the 2002 Bali bombings.
