Rihanna is one celebrity that comes off to many people as a person with an extra hard shell around her, one that is not easily broken by anyone’s criticisms or comments about the way she looks, carries herself or the things she does and says. And the pop star’s “I don’t give a f-ck” attitude has started to cost her some major endorsement deals, the one she had with Nivea being one of the most recent ones Rihanna lost. But there are still some things that drive Rihanna to tears as she got emotional talking about ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in a recent interview that she did with Oprah Winfrey. Despite losing her deal with Nivea and shedding tears over Chris Brown, Rihanna seems to be enjoying herself, continuously posting pictures of herself partying with friends, having a good time.
According to Daily Star though, some of Rihanna’s close friends are in fear that she is overdoing it when it comes to her drinking habits, saying that Rihanna is never spotted without a drink resting in her hand:
“She cannot put a drink down. Even when she’s in the sea on a surfboard, she’s got a beer.” “You really don’t see her go without a drink on any day of the week, ever.”
A source also told DS that Rihanna’s friends thought at one point that she was extremely close to having to enter into rehab for her excessive drinking:
“There was a point when all her mates thought she was within hours of going into rehab.”
Not only do some of her friends want Rihanna to slow down with her drinking, they also say that she never gives herself a chance to breathe:
“She never has a break between albums. Her singles come out at such a fast pace.” “She is always filming a video or doing a new photoshoot. She is so hardworking.”
It was rumored at one point that Jay-Z was calling for Rihanna to get dropped from the label if she didn’t check into rehab. And this is not the first time those close to Rihanna have spoken out about their fear of her drinking too much. Rihanna apparently doesn’t think she has a problem that needs help though as she continues with her normal party routines.
