Rihanna's IV Pic

Flu Da One

5/9/2012 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The IV picture Rihanna shared on TwitterThere's a reason Rihanna's arm was hooked up to a bunch of needles and tubes yesterday -- sources close to Rihanna tell TMZ, the singer had been struck down with a bad case of the flu ... and required an IV drip.

Sources tell us, she started feeling really ill last week and saw a doctor on Thursday ... but by the time of her "Saturday Night Live" appearance, she still wasn't fully recovered.

As we first reported, Rihanna missed the SNL dress rehearsal because she was sick -- but show producers didn't buy her excuse ... insisting she didn't appear ill.

But looks might be deceiving -- because we're told Rihanna wasn't just ill during her SNL performance, she also continued to feel sick the next few days ... and her doc was forced to put her on Penicillin.

Soon after, Rihanna began to experience flu-like symptoms -- requiring IV treatment yesterday, which is when she posted the above picture on Twitter.

We're told she's feeling much better now.

It's called being a celebrity...we get a cut on our face, they go get plastic surgery...we get a cold, they get a life threatening desease...we drink with our friends on the weekend, they party with $1000 bottles of liquer and then go to rehab! Its the price of being a famous person who needs to spend all their money keeping the slugs happy who are there when they have the money but are nowhere to be found when the well is dry and the tax man is asking what happen to his cut that they were supposed to put aside for him.....oops I guess I spent it on those six cars and the 6 million dollar house in the hills.....

Enough with this whore. Sick and tired of all the articles about this slut. No one cares about her. She is a no talent slut who is making the rounds trying to stay in the spotlight. No idea why. Enough about her. Move on to more appealing people.
