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!

Corsets are designed to become tighter with every breath you take, I can't imagine performing in one. It appears that her corset was vinyl or leather which would shrink even further in the heat and draw up from her perspiration. Cosets are completely uncomfortable, I'm shocked she didn't barf right there.

well... if she is pregnant we'll sure find out in a about 8 to 9 months....


and for the commenter who had trouble wearing a corset for halloween.... you had it on too tight... and i bet you're not thin. fat people shouldn't wear corsets... they are only for the thin and in shape people who aren't trying to make themselves look thinner. i've worn plenty of corsets and never had a problem. but then again.. i'm not trying to tie them as tight as possible to make myself look not so fat. i'm already in great shape and wear a corset at just the right amount of tightness and can breath just fine! corsets aren't for the fatties!

I thank number 3 for adding such a sane and sensible comment. It never ceases to amaze me how hateful people are until I read comments on sites like this. If she's pregnant, she has a wonderful man to marry and have a family with - if they're not already married. She is just purely overworked. There is no way anyone could turn out 5 number 1 songs in 4 years and travel constantly from continent to continent like she has. She was exhausted at last year's Grammy's and it looks like she still has not gotten the rest she needs. I wish her and Chris the best...they seem to be two exceptionally nice people and it's said to see them get belittled by heartless and unnecessary criticism. Like her latest number 1 song says - Live your life and leave others alone - stop the negativity.

lmao @ ferraripryncess.

You have not a clue about corsets. Why don't you go brush up on some corset history and find out that they are indeed for the "fatties" and you are supposed to tie them as tight as you can, and even wear them several sizes too small. It's plain to me that you have never worn a REAL corset, only the trendy wannabe corsets.

First thought that came to mind, Preggars! Classic sign. But we will probably never know unless she decides to keep it of course.

NO PEOPLE SHE IS NOT PREGNANT.
Watch an actual clear full length video of the performance that one of the fans took at the concert. it clearly shows rihanna signaling someone to brong her her inhaler, because she could not breath. especially since she was in a corset and flying over the fans. So the things is that she has ASTMA !
so chiil. no rihanna is NOT pregnant

I think she might be pregnant. If she is, that is wonderful! A baby is a blessing. Her child would be gorgeous
just like their mommy! Nothing wrong with reproducing. But if she is i hope this is something she wants.

Anyway, she might not be pregnant and that's even better. She's very new on the music scene, relatively speaking
and she has a long, bright career ahead of her.

I like Rihanna a lot. She's not all conceited and diva like, like Beyonce.
