Doctors Order Rihanna To "Take It Easy"

Doctors have ordered Rihanna to stop going out and drinking after she ended up in hospital with the flu.

As we previously reported, RiRi was forced to cancel a show in Sweden on Monday after being struck with the illness, posting a snap of herself hooked up to an IV drip on Twitter.

The Sun has now reported that doctors have warned the We Found Love singer to take it easy, after her wild ways and hectic work schedule seem to be taking its toll on the Barbadian beauty.

A source told the tabloid: "Rihanna is running on empty but she's still been going out drinking and living it up."

"She doesn't have any down time where she can completely relax.She spends most of her time in the studio, on stage or in clubs. Doctors are worried she's overdoing it."

They added: "She needs to take some time off. Otherwise she'll be vulnerable to more illness."

RiRi's showbiz pals Jay-Z and The X Factor USA judge LA Reid have both sent the 23-year old flowers and wished her a speedy recovery, with fans hoping she is back to full health for when her Loud tour resumes at London's O2 Arena later this month.
