It’s been on the cards for a while but things have finally got too much for Rihanna. The 24-year-old singer’s life has been spiralling out of control and her wild ways finally landed her in hospital, following a night of partying after the MET Ball in New York City on 7 May. She was treated for “exhaustion and dehydration”, which are often Hollywood code words for something more. The singer posted a photo of her arm attached to an IV drip, confirming the story, and after leaving hospital she tweeted, “I f***ed that up.”
Begged to slow down
Friends and family are growing more and more concerned for the troubled star. Her brother Rorrey Fenty said their mum Monica had begged her to come home to Barbados, adding, “I could see this coming. Her management have been working her a 13-hour day. She’s been exhausted for months.”
Friends have also pleaded with her to slow down. One insider revealed, “Rihanna loves to party, but this past month she’s gotten really out of control. She’s been drinking almost every day.” One friend who isn’t getting involved is her ex Chris Brown, who she unfollowed on Twitter after he released a nasty remix of Kanye West’s TheraFlu, allegedly about RiRi. On the track Chris freestyle raps, “[Everyone] done had her. Trick or treat like a pumpkin… just to smash her…” It’s no wonder these comments tipped RiRi over the edge!
Off the rails
RiRi isn’t shy about her exploits. She made tongues wag when she tweeted a photo of a suspicious-looking white powder, leading people to worry she has a substance abuse problem. Next came shocking photos of her with exotic dancers where she showered them with money.
She also failed to turn up for her final dress rehearsal on Saturday Night Live, which staff say was unusual for her. “Seriously, I’m sick! Don’t wake me up for dumb s*** like that,” the singer rudely tweeted.
Dumped for an older woman?
RiRi’s diva behaviour is spiralling out of control, but is it all just a cry for attention? She was rumoured to be dating fellow musician Drake but he has reportedly ditched her for Tyra Banks. Drake and Tyra, 38, have been spotted hanging out publicly, even going on a date to Disneyland. Seeing them together must have all been too much for poor RiRi, who turned up to Time’s Most Influential party dressed like Tyra, ditching her usual wacky style for a strapless dress.
RiRi finally gave in to her family’s requests and went home, tweeting snaps of them hanging out as a happy clan. Will RiRi finally sort herself out to win Drake back, or will she spiral further out of control? Watch this space…
