Did Rihanna party so hard after the Met Gala that she ended up in the hospital?


Here’s a photo of Rihanna at an after party that followed the Met Gala. She’s still wearing her sleek, black Tom Ford gown but has changed up her lipstick, opting for bold red instead of the tasteful nude shade she favored at the Gala itself. Clearly, RiRi can only tolerate the “classy” look for so long, and she probably partied her ass off (more on that in a bit) for several hours. This is a precursor to a few stories, the first of which is Rihanna taking this week’s cover of Star magazine (you can see a thumbnail of the cover itself at Hollywood Life) with a story about her “deadly party binge” habits that have formed in the aftermath of the Chris Brown relationship. Allegedly, Rihanna has been driven to heavy substance abuse (not to mention racist twitpics) because she’s so distressed over Chris’ new tattoo of his girlfriend’s face:

Rihanna’s friends are reportedly very worried that her partying has gotten “out of control.” According to Star, Rihanna reportedly freaked out when Chris Brown got a tattoo of his girlfriend Karrueche Tran’s face on his arm – and you’ll never believe what that caused her to do!

“When Chris got the tattoo,” the source says. “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.”

Isn’t that just so sad? A source goes on to say that Rihanna gets tired of just sitting in her hotel room so she goes out and parties late and drinks by herself.

“When people tell her she’s a role model, she goes crazy,” the source says. “She doesn’t want to hear it. If anything, she rebels and goes out and does something even more shocking than the time before.”

The source says that Rihanna posted the photo of herself with a white substance at Coachella, and pretended to be in a lesbian relationship just to rebel.

“Rihanna loves being a bad girl and shocking people,” the source adds. “She says she’s having fun, but it’s clear she’s acting out because she’s in a lot of emotional pain.”

It’s difficult to analyze the Star take on Rihanna’s partying until the full story is released in a day or so, but I can fully believe that she’s been on a bender lately. She’s quite enraptured with the idea of “danger” and seems to have a devil-may-care attitude about just about everything. Here’s a particularly troubling vision from a photo (that Rihanna posted on her own Twitter stream) of her own arm (those are her Met Gala talons) with a IV attached:


Rihanna was rushed to hospital after partying at the Met Gala in New York on Monday night.

The You Da One hitmaker tweeted a picture of herself attached to an IV drip in a hospital.

She was suffering from “exhaustion and dehydration,” according to MediaTakeOut.

However, after a brief stay in the undisclosed medical center, she was discharged and allowed to fly back to her home in Los Angeles, arriving in California earlier this morning.

It comes just days after the 24-year-old singer pulled out of a Saturday Night Live rehearsal due to her tiredness.

The star has certainly been burning the candle at both ends in recent months and the new issue of America’s Star magazine claims she is “spiraling out of control.”

“Rihanna loves to party but this past month she’s gotten really out of control,” an insider tells the publication. “She’s been drinking almost everyday and talking about smoking weed a lot too.”

When I first glimpsed the IV photo, I wasn’t sure where the incident had taken place, and it could’ve happened in her hotel suite. It would be completely possible that Rihanna is prone to dehydration (all that alcohol takes its toll), and perhaps she even has a team to hook her up whenever she feels the need. The Mail story alleges that she was actually in a hospital emergency room though, which sounds like trouble for sure.

Meanwhile, RiRi also let it slip while at the Gala that she’s currently working on her own fashion line. Yes, it will be a very trashy fashion line, but does she really need the cash that badly? I’d like to see Rihanna take a break for awhile. Even if she is rather immature in her social behavior, the girl’s been though a lot — a world tour, filming and promoting Battleship, plus the Chris Brown stuff — over the past few years. She needs some rest before it’s too late. And if these ominous stories are correct, she may need some rehab too.

    I know a lot of people don’t like her, but I think it really is just a case of exhaustion. She was apparently not feeling well before SNL, and she was late to the MET as well because she didn’t feel well. It doesn’t seem necessary to turn it into something nefarious. Everyone runs out of steam sometimes.

    • HappyMom says:

      How many real life people do you know where this happens? Celebrities get treated for “exhaustion” when they’re drinking, using drugs and not eating or sleeping.

    • Trashaddict says:

      Maybe the tweet photo was to counter reports about how the SNL crew was pissed off at her for skipping rehearsal and that they thought she didn’t really look sick?

  2. Fyofeelings says:

    Love how you pretend to care… If she destroyed her life over a douche so be it I’ll just grab my popcorn and sit back and enjoy the train wreck.

  3. reeree says:

    honestly, I can’t deal. she should count her blessings for her success! this self destructive bender she’s on will sink her career. it’s mindless and stupid! shows so much about her as a person

    • anonymoose says:

      I can only hope her “career” sinks. The sooner the better.

      Also, that IV pic looks fishy. The faux nails look too long and not pointy enough to be the way she wears her stupid talons, and no tatts are showing. Seems like her twitter was hacked. If it is her, what a stupid thing to do (then again, it’s Rihanna so stupid is as stupid does.)

  4. valleymiss says:

    Rihanna, you in danger girl.

  5. lucy2 says:

    She’s such a mess, but doesn’t seem to have any desire to get her life in a better place.

  6. Miss says:

    I’m not getting the “needs help” vibe. I figures she’s a partier but she’s not out of control.

    Anyone else notice that we all know it was weed blasted with flash on that guys head at coachella but the media keeps saying a “mysterious white substance”? Lame. The jigs up.

  7. janie says:

    Pretty sure that “source” is full of shit, mainly because it’s obvious her photo from Coachella was of delicious frosty weed and a camera’s flash, not some white substance. She definitely lives hard, but she just reminds me of some of my slightly-crazy hard partying friends. They’d be just as scandalous if they had the money and fame. Don’t see the issue here.

    • Ellie says:

      It does look frosty-delicious. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that thought so!

  8. laylajanelovesgossip says:

    IDK guys, people in distress don’t tweet pics…It maybe an attention-whore move to stay relevant.

  9. grabbyhands says:

    I love that she’s not so “exhausted” that she can’t tweet about it. I wonder if we’re going to be treated to pictures of her flashing her tits or her ladyparts from her hospital bed so we know how thug she is.

  10. skipper says:

    She is trash. Plain and simple.

  11. menlisa says:

    “exhausted’ people don’t tweet about it..
    Famewhores do..
    I bet she is having an orgasm over how much attention the tweet-photo is garnering.

  12. Beatrix says:

    I will never understand the cheap chola fad of ridiculously long nails. I see it here and Lana del Rey has em’ too, what is the deal? It is not avant garde, it is not innovative and it is not attractive, what gives?

    • anon33 says:

      I don’t understand any of this 80s/90s crap that’s been coming back…palazzo pants, jumpers, long pointy nails with tacky polish designs, NEON for god’s sake…

      • Stellax2 says:

        Amen…coloured jeans, it’s a nightmare. It was horrible look then and it is now. Of course, I have my resident pic of me with big hair in the mid eighties filled with aqua net. I’m so glad that it was brief for me.

  13. maemay says:

    i think everything is a publicity stunt, the whole stuck on chris thing, the stunt with chris’s girlfriend all seems like kardashian fake news stunts to keep her name in the press to me.

  14. original almond says:

    She’s riding the waves of her fame and wealth. She looks like the type who sinks hard, so I’m expecting to hear all about her addiction and lost millions in the not overly distant future.

  15. Dhavy says:

    It can’t be any trashier than the Dereon crap if her line comes out.
    IDK I used to like her style but after the whole CB incident she just seems trashy

  16. Violet says:

    “Exhaustion and dehydration” is usually Hollywoodspeak for health issues arising from substance abuse.

    Those nails are seriously frightening. How can she even function with those talons???

  17. the ORIGINAL skipper says:

    I seriously doubt that Rihanna gets bored and has to drink alone. I’m sure she has plenty of people willing to party with her.

    It’s the little details that make some of these stories unbelievable.

  18. skuddles says:

    I think she’s been looking heavily doped up for quite a while now… would not be surprised to find out she’s been playing with the harder drugs and drink. Sadly I think she’s going to end up in a very bad place before she gets her sh*t together.. if she ever does.

  19. Hm says:

    Actually, I think she’s getting her beauty and femininity back (just going by the pics – I don’t watch her performances).

  20. Michele says:

    Drug overdose – that’s it simple nothing more – nothing less

  21. Me says:

    since when isnt red lipstick classy?? im a bit offended by this honestly.

    • Chellez says:

      Me too. Don’t see that being said about others. Especially when red lips were huge quite recently.

  22. Axis2ClusterB says:

    My guess would be a banana bag (fluids and potassium, mostly) to sober her up and stave off a killer hangover. Not gonna fix the famewhoreness, tho.
