Rihanna auctioning off 2014 Christmas tree

Los Angeles: R&B star Rihanna is putting up her sparkling 2014 Christmas tree for sale as part of an auction for her second annual Diamond ball charity event.

The “Diamonds” hitmaker will front the black-tie fundraiser in Santa Monica, California to help raise funds for her Clara Lionel Foundation.

As part of the benefit, she will also auction off a number

of personal items, including a 400 pound abstract Christmas tree which the singer put up in her home for her holiday celebrations last year (14).

Created by artist Jorge Morfin, the tree consists of five separate units covered in black ice crystal mesh fabric with over 20,000 faux black ice crystals.

Comedian Kevin Hart is set to host this year’s Diamond Ball, with Lionel Richie slated to perform.
