Rihanna turned down super bowl halftime show

Rihanna reportedly has a powerful reason for turning down the opportunity to perform at next year’s Super Bowl. 

“Yes they asked her and yes, she declined,” a source with knowledge of the situation tells PEOPLE, adding that the decision was likely made in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The football player, 30, is known for starting the #TakeAKnee movement in 2016, where he declined to stand for the national anthem at games in protest of police brutality and the racial injustices faced by people of color in America.

While Rihanna won’t be taking the stage at the upcoming 2019 Super Bowl, a source previously confirmed to PEOPLE that Maroon 5 will be.
