Rihanna is really going through it. First Minister Louis Farrakhan gives her the supreme diss earlier in the week, calling her Grammy performance “filthy”, now Jay-Z is very concerned about Rhi-Rhi’s health from her punishing schedule.
When Rihanna performed at the NBA All-Star Game last month, it was apparent her typically stellar vocals were a bit on the weak side, as the singer was reportedly suffering from a bout with bronchitis. The singer hasn’t really taken any down time to deal with her health problems by easing up on her appearances, which has caused longtime mentor and friend Jay-Z to take notice.
According to Look Magazine (as quoted by MTV UK), Jay-Z is worried that the 23-year-old is being overworked and that her current schedule is causing her health to deteriorate. “Rihanna’s professional, works hard and stays away from drugs and alcohol, but Jay wants her to be careful,” a source told Look Magazine.
Look Magazine also reports that Jay-Z is concerned Rihanna could resume contact with former flame Chris Brown, now that a judge recently reduced a restraining order against him. Brown’s order is now a level one, granting him the right to have contact with Rihanna so long as he does not “harass, annoy or molest her.”
