poser rock star Rihanna has made no secret of her drug use and drinking, and according to a new report, her liver is now in danger as a result.
The National Enquirer is reporting that Rihanna is currently in a desperate life-or-death battle with liver damage caused by years of boozing and out-of-control partying.
If you recall, the 24-year-old Grammy winner was hospitalized earlier this month after a bender. Her reckless behavior, coupled with her grueling work schedule, now has friends and experts worried that she’s on a fast track to becoming the next Whtiney Houston. Yikes.
“Rihanna is spiraling out of control and is headed for an early grave,” said one concerned insider. “It never seems to be one beer or one cocktail. Once she gets started, Rihanna pounds drinks all night long, sometimes until the sun comes up. She definitely goes on binges. She’s been a hard drinker since her teens and her friends and family are desperately urging her to get into rehab.”
In fact medical experts say the singer’s drinking habits could be deadly. “Rihanna could be dead tomorrow from liver failure,” Orlando-based, board-certified physician Dr. Gabe Mirkin told The Enquirer. “Anybody who drinks alcohol for more than two hours a day, even if it is binge drinking once a week, is looking a premature death. Once the liver is permanently damaged, it’s over.”
Dr. Robert Waldman, consultant to the Cliffside Malibu treatment center and a 25-year veteran of addiction medicine, agreed. “The earlier you start to drink, the more the body becomes dependent on alcohol. It can cause deadly cirrhosis of the liver and alcohol poisoning — even at her age.”
Indeed, Rihanna’s world came crashing down earlier this month when she missed an “SNL” final dress rehearsal and needed a shot of penicillin to make it through her May 5 performance. And on May 8, she was reportedly hospitalized for exhaustion and dehydration.
After recovering from her frightening hospitalization to make it to the May 10 L.A. premiere of ‘Battleship’, Rihanna alarmed onlookers by skipping dinner, opting instead to chew gum and drink a lime cocktail. Two days later, she was seen partying until 4 a.m. in a New York nightclub.
Sadly, the entertainer, whose father is a former crack addict, appears to be continuing her nonstop pace — blazing a round-the-world party trail since she started the year knocking back beers and smoking pot during a Hawaiian vacation.
“I think Rihanna is destroying her liver,” warned the insider. “She’ll wind up dead like Whitney Houston if she doesn’t get help fast.”
