So we're getting word now that the IV that Rihanna posted was used to combat the flu… which is wonderful to hear! We are so happy it wasn't a larger, more serious illness.
But that's not the end of it.
It seems that some of her friends are using the speculation surrounding it as a jumping point to come forward and admit that they would like to see her partying ways become part of the past… and to see RiRi go to ReRehab.
Here's what some of those friends are saying:
“She’s actually a very lonely girl … she gets fed up with sitting in her hotel room, so she goes out drinking.”
“When Chris got the tattoo, Rihanna freaked out. She’s been obsessed with the thought that he’s going to marry Karrueche and she’ll never be able to get back with him. She’s heartbroken and in a bad place … she’s been numbing the pain with alcohol."
“She says she’s having fun, but it’s clear she’s acting out because she’s in a lot of emotional pain. Everyone is telling her to slow down and think about therapy, or even rehab.”
“Nobody wants her to end up like her father, or worse, turn out to be a tragic figure like Whitney Houston. But that’s what’s going to happen if she doesn’t take some action furious because it’s extremely rare for to save herself — fast.”
Wow. It sounds a lot of people think that rehab is the right answer for her. We're sure they mean well, but at this point it's all up to her and whether or not she thinks her lifestyle is a danger to her!
Especially if that IV was just for the flu!
We only want her to be happy and healthy — and if she IS those things, we're content, as long as she isn't hurting others in the process too!
And if she ends up needing rehab, then we support that journey too!
