Fears for Rihanna after pic shows her on hospital drip

FEARS are growing for the health of singer Rihanna after she checked into hospital due to "exhaustion and dehydration".

The 24-year-old posted a picture on her Twitter page which shows a hospital drip in her arm (right).

The star was brought to hospital just hours after she attended the glitzy Met Gala in New York on Monday night.

The Umbrella singer gave no reason to her 18 million Twitter followers as to why she was brought to hospital -- but concerns are now growing for her health.

One fan directly asked the Bajan star why the media was asking if she was about to go to rehab.

She replied: "cuz betty ford specializes in flu's, and refusing to lip sync a dress rehearsal cus ur sick, means ur not sick... and such."


Last November, RiRi cancelled a concert in Sweden when she was taken to hospital and put on a drip, with her camp insisting it was a bad case of flu.

Her latest trip to hospital comes after she missed a dress rehearsal for Saturday Night Live due to illness and tiredness.

Before attending the New York Met Gala Ball, she told fans on Twitter that she was feeling ill-- though she was still spotted drinking champagne.

Doctors allowed the star to leave the medical centre after 24 hours.

She later told fans that she would be flying back to Los Angeles.
