Rihanna Faints, Rushed To Paramedics

Rihanna Faints, Rushed To Paramedics

Rihanna passed out on stage during her concert earlier today (November 7th) at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.

Here’s how it went down: The 20-year-old Bajan beauty was performing her smash hit “Umbrella”, the last song of her concert. She had just come down from flying around on a harness. Beau Chris Brown joined her on stage for the final performance of the night. Rihanna was then seen hunching over and signaling that she wasn’t feeling well. Rihanna then ran off stage, where paramedics rushed to her side. Chris continued to finish singing the song and then rushed backstage to Rihanna‘s side.

The concert ended without any mention of what exactly happened. Watch the video footage below! Let’s hope that Rihanna is stable now and on the road to a speedy recovery. Get well soon, RiRi!!!

UPDATE: “It was very hot at the venue, so after Rihanna‘s set was over, she went off stage to sit down, catch her breath and have some water,” her rep tells E!. “She is perfectly healthy and will be at her show tomorrow.”

    Is that a recent photo of Rihanna? She looks like she’s aged 20 years. No wonder she fainted. I bet she’s exhausted!

  • j

    She was holding her stomach like she was in pain.

    I hope she is ok.

  • Portia

    The girl often says she skips meals in order to be skinny. Well, that’s what happens when you don’t eat. I dont know if its because of that, but if it is…she needs help and some rest.

  • hel

  • honey

    Is that really Rihanna? The girl is only 20 and she already looks like she’s 40+. She’s working herself too hard. Hope she takes a break.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    she’s been working way to hard.

    that’s what happens when you’re number 1. she needs to slow it down and give some of the other female artist a chance.

  • alllthegossip
  • Jessica

    She’s not pregnant and she’s not starving herself, her corset was simply to tight. She probbaly couldn’t breathe. She’ll be fine.

  • enoughalready

    @WOW, there is a time an place for stuff like that and this is not one of them..We dont wish ill on anyone. Maybe the thing was too tight and hurt one of her ribs.

    Get well soon!!!

    For a twenty year old who has to work extra hard, her schedule is off the hook!!!

  • Purplerose

    I hope she is ok and for WOW your comment is disgusting that you could say such a thing….jealousy is a terrible thing aint it ppl so get over it, and hello everyone….just coz she is almost spewing or watever dont mean that she is pregnant, gee i think all you are wishing she was to chris brown, like wat others have also said, working her self into ground etc, not eating, but who cares lets just hope she is alright and show her our AUSSIE SUPPORT !!!!!

  • enoughalready

    Hate to be the barrier of bad news but it was said the corset was too tight. Also one of the concert goers reported on another Rihanna site that the show was not good anyway. You know a typical Rihanna show..

    The best part was the Umbrella song..

    But this flying in the air stuff is way too much, and she really is working to hard.

    Speedy recovery any way!!!

  • La YAri


  • give me Sinatra!

    Why do these “celebrities” get paid so much to lip-sync? More importantly…why do the public spend money to see this? A bit strange that her song continued while she was on the ground passed out.

  • anonymous

    Hey….Diarrheanna….youre not Madonna!

  • enoughalready

    @39 you just finding that out, she been doing that since Umbrella first came out..

    And she has not stopped!!!

  • warren buffet

    fuck u riri, i dont give a shit
    i do think her label is really working her hard
    what it is, like an album and a tour every year, i swear

  • baleme

    she’s always wearing corsets and cutting off her circulation, which causes fainting

  • brownie

    i hope she is ok !! i <3 her becouse she is the best!!! but she is doing so hard that she must take a break
    chris and riri 4 ever

  • Kaylyn

    OMG guys. Stop saying that she looks like a 40 year old. Hollywood puts a lot of pressure on young stars. she’s probably tired to death. and don’t go bashing on her looks! she’s gorgeous. and talented. so shut the f*** up.. kay? hope she gets well soon!

  • kaylee

    She’s not pregnant and she’s not starving herself, her corset was simply to tight. She probbaly couldn’t breathe. She’ll be fine.
