Rihanna steps out in her most revealing day look yet... as friends 'urge her to go to rehab to seek help for excessive partying'

She's pictured out drinking and partying on most nights, regardless of where in the world she is.

 

But now new claims have emerged that Rihanna's friends are so concerned about her welfare due to her 'excessive partying' that they are urging her to check into a rehab centre.

 

According to reports, Rihanna's manager and close friend Jay-Z has ordered the 24-year-old singer to seek help before it's too late.

The claims about Rihanna's wellbeing came as the singer was pictured stepping out in New York looking tired and dishevelled in possibly her most revealing outfit yet.

 

Rihanna was pictured wearing a tiny pink lace bandeau bra with a pleated skirt as she headed out and about in Manhattan, covering up with a white cardigan over the top at points during the outing.

 

She teamed the outfits with a pair of high-top trainers and sunglasses.

Rihanna has sparked concern among friends and family with her love of drinking and partying, with Jay-Z apparently even threatening to drop her from his label if she doesn't get her life in order.

Things went from bad to worse when Rihanna was forced to cancel a scheduled work trip to the UK last week, after allegedly missing her flight.

 

A source told Closer magazine: 'Rihanna has been out of control for months.

 

'She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week, but she ended up missing it, which was the final straw for management.

 

'Jay-Z hit the roof when he found out, and told Rihanna, "Go to rehab now or I'll drop you from the label". She's not happy, but she now feels she has no choice.'

 

However, Rihanna denied claims that she had cancelled the UK trip due to illness, insisting she just needed to spend more time with her family, particularly her grandmother Dolly who is suffering from cancer.

 

Meanwhile, other reports have suggested that Rihanna is suffering from a personality disorder.

 

A friend told Look magazine: 'She's reached breaking point. Ri says she's physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost.

 

'I think she desperately needs help and some time off - not just from work but from all the other stresses in her life too.'

 

The magazine claim that Rihanna's symptoms, which include her regular updating of fans by sharing pictures and news on Twitter, are indicative that the singer is suffering from Narcisstic Personality Disorder - 'a constant need for attention and admiration'.

Her body's on fire! Jared Followill's fiancée Martha shows off her slim model figure on the beach

Jared Followill's fiancée showed why the Kings Of Leon star is so eager to lock her down today as the couple enjoyed the beach in Miami.

 

Martha Patterson stripped down to a bikini that revealed her slender model's figure.

 

Jared, 25, played a show in the city the night before, with his wife-to-be in town to support him.

The couple took to the sand on his day off, and were snapped walking with their arms around each other along the beach.

 

Martha wore a beige string bikini beneath a pretty yellow sun dress, and carried matching beige sandal.

 

Bassist Jared wore bright blue shorts and a grey shirt.

He covered his head in a cap, and joked on Twitter: 'It is SO humid in Miami today. They just rushed me to the hospital. I'm in the Intensive Hair Unit.'

 

 

 

The day before, they were spotted chilling out by their hotel pool and sipping on cocktails.

 

The musician announced last month that he had become engaged to Martha.

He proposed with a 4-carat cushion-cut diamond on a diamond-covered band that he designed himself.

 

Despite having only been dating since January last year, Jared is clearly loved up with Martha and keen to follow in the foot steps of his band mates.

 

He's the only member of the band who isn't married but it seems Followill has had enough of the single life.

The 25-year-old musician popped the question to his girlfriend Martha Patterson in April and in early May confirmed the good news via Twitter.

 

'It's true! I'm engaged! CANNOT wait to finally lose my virginity,' he posted.

 

A Kings Of Leon representative also confirmed the news to Just Jared saying: 'Yes, it’s true! Jared proposed to Martha on April 11 at his home in Nashville and we’re all excited for the newly engaged couple.'

His brother's Caleb and Nathan have both tied the knot after Nathan wed Jessie Baylin back in November 2009 and Caleb saying I do to Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge more recently in May last year.

 

The couple are expecting their first child which is due this Summer and drummer of the band - and cousin to the three musicians - Matthew is father to his one-year-old son Knox with wife Johanna Bennett.

 

No date has been announced for the wedding yet.

Does Kate only own ONE pair of shoes?

She wore them to the Epsom Derby last June. To Prince Philip’s 90th birthday at Windsor. To attend Zara Phillips’s wedding, and on a visit to the Royal Marsden Hospital, London.

 

On tour in Canada and the U.S., she was seen in them six times. On Sunday, she chose them for the Royal Barge. And on Tuesday she put them on to attend the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s cathedral.

 

Just what is it about Kate and her £185 pair of LK Bennett nude patent courts? Perhaps she bought a dozen pairs of the Sledge Court Shoe, first produced in 2009, as she loved them so much? Perhaps they are such good value and never scuff.

Despite their four-inch heel, they must be comfy, given they have been worn in so wonderfully (the Queen asks her dresser, Angela Kelly, to break in shoes for her. Kate clearly has no need of such a service).

 

What’s more, at St Paul’s, Samantha Cameron wore the same pair, only in black. For after they became such a success, LK  Bennett brought out a Sledge 2: identical, but in a patent leather rather than a high-shine leather.

In the more recent photos, Kate is wearing the patent version — which means she definitely has at least a pair to wear and a pair to air.

 

So what is wrong with Kate endlessly showcasing a High Street shoe? Well, my feeling is it’s her job to surprise us, and showcase up-and-coming British talent.

 

The ‘safe’ nude shoe is very much a 2011 trend, as is the slim platform; seen endlessly on the High Street.

 

I understand Kate’s need for a platform, given it makes a high heel more comfortable, as the foot is at a less acute angle. But, surely,  if the Queen can eschew a platform, so can the Duchess.

 

Kate has occasionally patronised other shoe brands: Jimmy Choo twice, Pied a Terre once, and an Aquatalia Rumba boot — an awful suede affair. And wedge espadrilles, too. All pretty ghastly.

 

But what should Kate be putting on those size seven feet?

Kate should patronise Aruna Seth, a 30-year-old British-born designer who makes wonderful shoes that hover around the £600 to £800 mark. I love her Lynn strappy sandals in silver, £625, worn by sister Pippa.

 

Or show courtier Georgina Goodman, who sadly went into liquidation in May, but she still hopes to make bespoke commissions.

 

Or how about patronising the new generation of shoe couturiers, such as Rupert Sanderson, Charlotte Dellal, Camilla Skovgaard and Tracey Neuls?

 

I’ve heard the predictable argument that, in a recession, Kate should not splash the cash. This is wrong. This nation will only become great again if we buy British, and Kate’s job is to inspire and ignite our passion for fashion (remember retail is the UK’s biggest employer), not bore us with Bennetts.
