There have been plenty of stories lately about Rihanna getting all kinds of fucked up (she was even hospitalized for “exhaustion” following a Met Gala bender earlier this month), and now her partying’s reached the point that her label is threatening to drop her unless she goes to rehab. Radar Online says:
“Rihanna has been out of control for months,” an insider told Closer magazine. “She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week [for a work obligation], but she ended up missing it, which was the final straw for management. Jay-Z hit the roof when he found out, and told Rihanna, ‘Go to rehab now or I’ll drop you from the label.’
“She’s not happy, but she now feels she has no choice. She’s physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost… I think she desperately needs help and some time off.
I tell you what would fix her up real quick — she needs Chris Brown to come dot that eye for her again. I bet that would set her straight. Sometimes a good backhand is all an alcoholic needs to see the light.
