Yesterday, photos Rihanna tweeted that showed her arm hooked up to an IV drip caused concern for her health, especially on the heels of a recent cancellation of a Saturday Night Live performance because of illness and exhaustion. But MTV News reports on Thursday that a source close to her says the singer is now fine:

Ahead of her appearance at the Met Ball in New York over the weekend, the Where Have You Been singer issued a colorful complaint about feeling under the weather, with RiRi tweeting: "Ph*ck bein sick!"

The 24-year old then added: "Seriously, I'm sick! Don't wake me up for dumb s**t like that."

She then surprised her 18 million followers with the photographic proof of her unidentified illness Tuesday (8th May) with a Twit pic that showed RiRi in bed with an IV in her arm.

According to People, a source close to Rihanna said the Bajan babe is on the mend and was not suffering from anything serious, stating: "She had a fever and flu since last week and needed an IV, but is fine now."


The Sun has since reported that a separate source has suggested that RiRi also received treatment at a private medical centre for “exhaustion and dehydration."
