Rihanna ordered by doctors to curb her partying lifestyle
The `Cheers (Drink to That)` singer was forced to pull out of a show in Malmo, Sweden, on Monday (31.12.11) after being hospitalised with a bout of flu, and her medical team are concerned she is going out too much while on tour.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Rihanna is running on empty but she`s still been going out drinking and living it up.
"She doesn`t have any down time where she can completely relax. She spends most of her time in the studio, on stage or in clubs. Doctors are worried she`s overdoing it.
"She needs to take some time off. Otherwise she`ll be vulnerable to more illness."
Rihanna, 23, posted a picture of herself with a drip in her arm from the hospital, and later released a statement apologising to fans for missing the show.
She said: "I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo. I was so excited to perform for you all.
"It would have been a great time. So much better than being sick with the flu, ugh. I`m really disappointed I couldn`t be there."
Stars have rushed to wish Rihanna well with friend and mentor Jay-Z and US `X Factor` judge LA Reid sending her flowers.
Rihanna`s `Loud Tour` resumed last night (01.11.11) in Stockholm, Sweden.
