Rihanna hospitalized after Met Gala

By Jillian Claybrook,

Rihanna alarmed some of her fans on Tuesday when she tweeted a picture of herself with an IV in her arm.

Us Weekly reported that the singer was rushed to a hospital in New York City on Monday night after attending the Met Gala.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Rihanna had been suffering from a fever and the flu since last week and that is the reason for the hospital visit and the subsequent IV drip. Her illness caused her to cancel a Saturday Night Live rehearsal on Friday, but she was feeling well enough to perform on the live show on Saturday night, Us reports.

“---k bein sick!” she tweeted on Sunday.

But from the look of the “You Da One" singer on the red carpet on Monday night, one would never guess that she was feeling under the weather. Rihanna looked gorgeous in a black Tom Ford crocodile embossed dress.

The Daily Mail reports that after a brief stay in the hospital, Rihanna was discharged and returned to Los Angeles this morning.

This wasn’t the first time that the singer was hospitalized due to fatigue and illness. According to Us, Rihanna had to cancel two shows in Stockholm, Sweden last November because she was too sick to perform. Coincidentally, the singer tweeted a similar picture to her fans in which she can be seen with an IV drip in her arm.
