Rihanna allegedly considering going into ‘love addiction’ rehab, sources claim

This is a weird report that seems to be getting traction, although I’m not sure why. Rihanna is allegedly heading into rehab… LOVE rehab. Yeah. Obviously, Rihanna has some issues that many of us would like her to work on, and I definitely think talk-therapy would help her, but I think this report is full of it.

Riri is said to be pining for the ‘love of her life’ Chris Brown himself following their recent split and his decision to rekindle his relationship with fashion designer Karreuche Tran, and is thinking of checking into a clinic for a heartbreak therapy course to get over him for good and is apparently likely to begin the 12-step programme – which follows the same format as alcohol and drug rehabilitation – during her upcoming six-week break from her ‘Diamonds World Tour’ at The Ranch clinic in Tennessee, or so The Ranch clinic are probably making up to get some press their way.

A ‘source’ told Grazia magazine: ‘Rihanna is still desperately in love with Chris. It’s like she’s obsessed with him and, although he’s told her it’s over, she just can’t get over him. After talking it through with a psychotherapist, Rihanna is now considering doing a 12-step programme to get rid of her demons.’

The Ranch’s ‘Women’s Love and Sex Addiction Treatment Programme’ helps women with issues with ‘attracting troubled, addicted, abusive or otherwise emotionally unavailable partners’ using treatments as varied as counselling and equine therapy.

Rihanna’s relationship went on for three years, but split in February 2009 when he assaulted her after a pre-Grammy’s party. Following a two-year romance with Karrueche, He Who Shall Not Be Named and Rihanna announced they were officially a couple again January 2013 after months of speculation and the confused douchebag claimed he was in love with ‘two women’ but their turbulent romance has now ended again.

From the looks of it, Rihanna has been handling the last Chris Brown-breakup pretty well. There hasn’t been the usual flurry of tweets, Instagrams, interviews and reports indicating that she’s still in love with him. So maybe Rihanna is doing better with the Chris Brown stuff, although God knows. What I do know is that she’s been partying a lot. She parties HARD. She parties so hard that she shows up hours late to her concerts, like she did two nights ago in England. She parties so hard that even Cara Delevingne is like “Whoa.”

    The reason she is famous is because of her mediocre music. If she can’t even make it to her concerts within several hours of the start time, her fans will not stick around.

    Also, that Cara girl looks way dirtier than Kristen Stewart ever could

    • MCraw says:

      Cara is an addict. So is Rihanna.

      I love the girl, so even tho this is BS pr spin on going to rehab for drugs, at least she’s finally recognizing her issues and getting help for it. Supposedly, she OD’d a few wks ago when she cancelled a show in Houston or something. She also showed up 2hrs late to a show in Birmingham… With Cara.

      • kay says:

        She wasn’t 2 hours late.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, I think this is about drug abuse. She has been cancelling a lot of concerts, and the Houston one was very suspicious.

        If she is getting help for addiction, good for her.

    • Hakura says:

      @Emily – I’m not familiar with this Cara girl, but I just can’t seem to get passed her eyebrows…My eyes just jump to them every time.

  2. Micki says:

    I’ve never heard there are “broken heart rehabs”
    I feel so behind times.

    • Stacey says:

      There is a blind item that says broken heart rehab it code for daily drug use. Unfortunaely…the H kind.

      • V4Real says:

        Well if it is code for drugs I applaude her for realizing she needs help and might be taking the steps needed to get clean. I hope she is over that other dirty addiction as well by the name of Chris Brown.

      • Micki says:

        But Stacey why does she need a code first place? How many selebs go for drug/ alcohol abuse, anger management and so on without sugarcoating it?
        I mean it’s not as if she had a squeaky clean image.
        It’s good if she addresses her issues, one at a time but the wrap and the ribbon…a bit over the top

  3. lady_luck says:

    I hope she gets help for this, because she is one seriously messed up person. The danger of this is she is now “identifying” with being addicted to Chris, and that cannot help with things. I also think she needs major help with “anger management”. I also did say on a previous posting that Rihanna has an “obsessive style attachment disorder”. I know this, because I have sought treatment in the past for the same thing. But again, identifying with it is a double-edged sword.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    I think “love addiction” is the least of her problems, but if it gets her some help, go for it. Hopefully they would tackle the self-esteem and substance abuse issues at the same time!

  5. Soapboxpudding says:

    Blind gossip.com has a blind that suggests this ‘love rehab’ is a cover for her going into actual rehab for her substance abuse problems.

  6. Macey says:

    Blind Gossip called this before the news hit but its actually a cover up for drug rehab. They’re going with this story to make her more sympathetic I guess.
    Cant say Im a fan or anything,actually her voice makes my ears hurt sometimes. She has one of the pitchiest voices out there and yet somehow she is on every other song that plays on the radio, its too much. They need to let her go away for awhile instead of putting out crappy albums every 6 months. I saw a video clip of her concert and the sound was awful. I would be so pissed if I paid money to hear that but then I know her she’s completely manufactured and auto-tuned out the whazzoo.

    heres blind gossip blip about this…

    She’s add*cted to dr*gs, People! And we’re not just talking weed here. We’re talking about the kinds of drugs that make her pain free. They also make her care free – as in “I don’t care about anyone else or anything except getting high.”

    She’s completely hooked, she’s doing it every day, and it’s destroying her career and her life. The BS about her checking into some sort of “Heartbreak Hotel” is a weak PR ploy to gain sympathy. Frankly, we find it hard to find sympathy for someone who sings about designer dr*gs and who frequently does dr*gs out in the open and expects her fans to applaud her for it.

    • Micki says:

      …”actually her voice makes my ears hurt “…
      Funny thing, It’s only her voice I like about her.

    • Diana says:

      I think it’s strange they thought that story would even be remotely believable. Love rehab? LOL OKAY. There’s no such thing. What about the tried and true “exhaustion” and “I need to get away for awhile?”

    • kay says:

      People are way too hard on rihanna…it’s almost like some people are waiting and hoping for her to have a breakdown.

      • Hakura says:

        @kay – I can’t speak for everyone, but I don’t want to see her break down.

        The only reason it would be considered a ‘good thing’ is if it were able to show her just how badly she truly needs help. It’s like nothing else can get through to her.

  7. ptitesirna says:

    I really am not a Rihanna fan….but damn, I love that outfit. ><

    • Barhey says:

      You can say a lot of bad stuff about Rihanna but I that girl puts together some amazing looks when she tries. I love this outfit.

  8. BooBooLaRue says:

    She sure looks rough for someone so young. I have no doubt she is dangerously codependent and a love-addict, along with some drink and drug habits. Get it together!

  9. kim says:

    If by “love” they mean:
    Narcisstic, coke snorting, pill popping, alcohol drinking, needy,self inflicted drama rehab?
    Then I couldn’t agree more.

    • kay says:

      Do you know her personally?

      • CatJ says:

        @Kay, if you are going to troll all the comments with your pithy, immature responses, in “defense” of Riri, please just write her a fan letter .

    • antisocial says:

      lol @ kim, you couldn’t be more right!!!
      Rihanna has the maturity level of a 15 year old, and I’m being generous. It seems like she’s expecting praise and applause for using her extraordinary opportunities/resources to sink to new gritty lows. No interest in education, seemingly no rational investments, certainly no focus on health, neither on a physical nor psychological level. She’s headed down the Whitney route, minus the exceptional natural talent and the ability to at least identify the best option, even if she doesn’t choose it. Instead she’s obsessed with her “bad girl” cred, Tweeting/Instagraming strip club antics, drug habits, ass shots – is nudity her solution for boredom? (Coupled of course with the insane and varied drug use)
      I hope her end goal includes not just sobriety but a greater degree of maturity too.

  10. Meaghan says:

    I’m suspicious about this. The rehab wouldn’t be allowed to talk about people checking in, or commenting. And her people would only let this leak if she wanted it to be out there. So either this story is completely fake, or her people leaked it because its a cover-up for her drug issues and they wanted to jump the gun on it.

  11. kay says:

    Are people who dislike rihanna that only ones allowed to comment? Just because i’m not making negative comments like most here does not make me a “troll” or “immature”.

  12. Nerd Alert says:

    Ugh, not this 12 Steps crap again. *eyeroll*

    I seriously hope it is for drugs, though, or that they address that if she does go, which she should. I saw her teeth in that pic from the links page last week (where she was at the Eiffel Tower), and the closeup in the 3rd one shows damage, most likely from smoking meth or speedballs.

  13. Prim says:

    I hope she does work a love addict programme. It’s easy to relapse on substances if you don’t get sober on love addiction.

  14. Mandy says:

    I love her shirt.

  15. Stoner says:

    Go home kay, you’re drunk.

  16. Elisa says:

    doesn’t she have a song about this, “Rehab” with Justin Timberlake?

    The bitch is tired…partyn , traveln, performing im sure takes a toll
