Just In: Rihanna is looking cheerful while in NYC

Beaming Rihanna puts her troubles behind her to enjoy a night out on the town…

Rihanna was all smiles as she headed out for a night out with friends in Manhattan.

Rihanna may not have much to smile about recently after reports she was attacked by boyfriend Chris Brown.

But the R&B singer was clearly determined to put her troubles behind her as she headed out for a night out on the town in New York.

Wearing sunglasses and a big grin, there were no signs of the ordeal which left the 21-year-old with a swollen and bruised face last month.

After arriving at a friend’s apartment, she met with fellow R&B stars Beyonce and Jay Z. The A-list crowd headed to The Spotted Pig restaurant in the west village, Manhattan, where they met with celebrity chef Mario Batali.

Rihanna appeared in good spirits and was seen laughing and joking with one of her friends as they headed out in the back of a car.

The night out is thought to be a belated birthday night out for the star, who was forced to cancel her 21st celebrations last month in the wake of the alleged attack.

She is said to have reconcilled with Brown earlier this month after a stay at millionaire producer Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ $20million home in Florida.

However the 19-year-old recording artist, who was charged with two felonies for the beating, was nowhere to be seen on the birthday night out.
