Rihanna Can't Stomach Her Own Performance

11/7/2008 3:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With one hand clutching her stomach, Rihanna suddenly darted off stage in the middle of a live performance with her beau Chris Brown in Australia last night -- and now TMZ knows what really happened behind the scenes.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ, "It was very hot at the venue, so after Rihanna's set was over, she went off stage and needed to sit down, catch her breath and have some water. She is perfectly healthy and will be at her show tomorrow."

We're also told Rihanna's health scare was a direct effect of an air conditioning problem in the arena.

For the record, Chris Brown was wearing a sweatshirt during the performance -- but we're guessing that crazy corsett thing traps a ton of heat!

Biased information    

I just want anyone who is reading this that not all people in the U.S. are as malicious, petty, unbalanced and superficial as most of the people who work for TMZ or who post comments on their site. I read some of the nasty blogs and comments about celebrities and it never fails to amaze me the hateful and disgusting comments people make. I just want everyone to know that most of the U.S. is not this angry and unbalanced. It's just a small fraction of people here who are most likely high on drugs when they write this stuff. I don't know how else to explain it because happy and sane people do not think, feel, talk or write the way many of these insane extremists do on this and many other tabloid sites.

These tabloid sites are a breeding ground for extremism because it give these kind of people an outlet to project their own self-hatred, paranoia and lack of self respect toward innocent celebs. Tabloid sites are a meeting place for like minded mentally unbalanced people who have nothing better to do than tear into celebrities they don't know. It's very sad that anyone out there is like this. Just realize most of us are not so please don't judge us by the angry vocal minority. Most Americans are nothing like them and we are all amazed that anyone is like this.

Have you ever worn a corset ???? As I learned on Halloween it's is almost impossible to breathe in one properly and I cant imagine jumping around stage in one

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED..!!    

Ah didn't look like she was preggers although not sure about the rep's call on it being just bad air con, rep's are so funny of course they have to dumb down the events. It was pretty full on. They didn't move her for about 30mins after she ran off stage.. She collapsed on her way around and couldn't move so definitely passed out.!! Looked like she threw up but I guess that's a mix of the harness and all that smoke on stage.. It was pretty bad..

As soon as Chris Brown finished the song he came off stage and realised what had happened and ran over to her.. There were like 6 ambulance around her and about 5 minders / assistants.. He stood around for like 30secs while people told him what was going on then went over quickly, took his jacket off and was right by her side the whole time. At this stage they had covered the backstage area with a black cloth so we couldn't see her directly (as we were on the left side of the stage) although there was a lot of comotion, ambo's running back and forth, oxygen machine.. If she just was exhausted they would have moved her although like I said she stayed there..

Also everytime she came backstage for a change etc the ambo's were there waiting and before the last change they went into her change room under the stage with her - she mustn't have been feeling well all night.. Poor thing..

We gotta love that lip syncing though.. She wasn't that great live? Let admit.. In fact i think Chris Brown rocked and was way better..!!

It's obvious none of you (with the exception of the person who wore one on Halloween) have ever worn a corset before. They are tight, they constrict your body and breathing. They're not meant for physical activity. I'm surprised she didn't pass out, especially if it was as hot at it was claimed to be.
