Rihanna Headed to Rehab?Published by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Is Rihanna’s party girl lifestyle finally catching up with her? After months of speculation that she may have finally hit the wall, various tabloids are reporting that Ri’s close friends, including el jefe Jay-Z, are ready to stage an intervention to get her into rehab.
“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.’”
In a separate report from Look magazine, a source said the singer has “reached breaking point.”
“Ri says she’s physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost,” the source said. “I think she desperately needs help and some time off — not just from work but from all the other stresses in her life too.”
Rihanna does seem to be burning both ends of the candle (with the occasional help of an IV drip to recharge her batteries) but is substance abuse the issue here, or does the pop diva need a 12-step program to help her deal with her compulsive Twitter disorder and her addiction to stripping near-naked at first sight of a camera?
