Rihanna’s antics as of late, from drinking, smoking, and partying into the wee hours of the morning to missing scheduled work are causing concerns. Now more alarm is creeping up in her daywear, the Barbados-bred singer was spotted wearing a sheer, lace bralet as a top in New York which appeared to be specifically for undergarment purposes only.
Reportedly the “Birthday Cake” singer’s friends are so concerned with her out-of-control behavior that they’re adamant she should get help. Jay-Z, Rihanna’s manager and mentor, has supposedly laid down a moratorium insisting she seeks help before it’s too late.
“Rihanna has been out of control for months,” a source tells Closer Magazine.
The undergarment piece was astounding revealing a very-bare midriff and aureola paired with a sheer, pleated skirt, but the 24-year-old looking exhausted and unhealthy while out on the streets of the Big Apple was most bothersome. To her credit, the “Umbrella” singer did cover up at times with a white cardigan.
Remember the canceled work trip to the UK last week? Well, that cancellation was the albatross for her management.
“She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week, 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.’ She’s not happy, but she now feels she has no choice.”
Another source suggests RiRi may be suffering from a personality disorder known as Narcissistic Personality Disorder, where she constantly has to have admiration and attention indicative of her steady tweetpics and Instagram shots.
The AtlantaBlackStar.com brings forth a good point: perhaps coined the rebel of R&B has been a conundrum for the R&B good-girl-gone-bad. Trying to have and maintain a life that duplicates who she is only meant to portray on stage, feeling beleaguered at not being able to separate the two.
“She’s reached breaking point. Ri says 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,” a source told Look Magazine.
