Rihanna's record label went into damage control this past weekend after photos of the Bajan singer smoking a rolled up joint surfaced online.
Rihanna was seen smoking a hand rolled joint while vacationing in Hawaii on Sunday. Later that same day, she sent out a tweet to her 12 million followers on Twitter.com glorifying her alcohol and drug use:
"Kush rolled, glass full...I prefer the better things!"
The 23-year-old singer has been spiraling out of control since last Summer when word leaked out of her camp that she was an out of control alcoholic and substance abuser. Sandrarose.com broke the story first about Rihanna's drinking problem.
The singer was hospitalized last year after going on a 2-day drinking and drug binge. It's not unusual to spot RiRi on a nightclub dance floor puffing and passing a joint. And last month she was forced to leave the stage during a concert to vomit.
We reached out to our label source yesterday to get his reaction to the weed photos. "Every effort is being made to get [Rihanna] into rehab. Even if it's on an outpatient basis," said our source who begged for anonymity.
