*Comedian-actor Kevin Hart has been tapped to host Rihanna’s second annual Diamond Ball, a black-tie event that benefits her Clara Lionel Foundation, which promotes education and arts globally.
The foundation, launched in 2012, is named after her grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
It will be held Dec. 10 at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. Lionel Richie is set to perform.
Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino will receive the Diamond Honors Award at the event.
Jimmy Kimmel hosted last year’s Diamond Ball, which raised more than $2 million. Guests included Brad Pitt, Kim Kardashian and Ne-Yo.
