Jay-Z Orders Rihanna to Rehab?
According to Jigga, there is such a thing as ‘partyin’ tooooooo much’…
Rihanna’s wild ways might be catching up with her, as rumors abound that her boss Jay-Z is ordering her to rehab or else. The Hova wants RiRi in rehab — so that’d be “rihab!”– or she faces being dropped from her label. Gasp. That’s not good. When Jay-Z lays down the law, lookout.
A source told Closer (quotes courtesy of Entertainment Wise), “Rihanna has been out of control for months.” Like that time she was supposed to catch a flight but she ended up missing it, which was “the final straw for management.”
Jay, who the singer says gave her the day off when she blew her flight schedule, apparently “hit the roof” upon learning of Ri’s recent foibles and issued an edict: “Go to rehab now or I’ll drop you from the label.” While RiRi was not thrilled at the ultimatum, she feels “she has no choice.”
The source also said that the ‘Where Have You Been’ singer has reached the “breaking point. She’s physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost. I think she desperately needs help and some time off. Not just from work but from all the other stresses in her life too.”
The fact that her grandmother is battling cancer is certainly adding to her stress level.
Jay might be intervening because he has to, as a guiding force in her life.
We’re going to interject a little opinion here. It’s doubtful that Rihanna would get booted from her label, since she’s a cash cow who churns out hit after hit. But perhaps Jay-Z needed to issue a threat to get her straighten up and fly right. If she did get dropped, there’d be dozen of label heads and execs ready to scoop her up, like her old pal L.A. Reid, who is now running the show at Epic.
Further proof of RiRi’s hard-partying lifestyle is her continued dalliance with Chris Brown. She was spotted at the same club as Breezy last night (June 11), according to TMZ. Both singers were at Avenue in NYC — the same city where Rihanna’s naked Rebelle billboard towers over Times Square. The same city where she flashed her headlights in a see-through bra top, mind you.
They both split within minutes of each other. While the left separately, they left at the same time. Perhaps rendezvousing elsewhere?
