Wellington: Jay-Z has asked Rihanna to take some time off as he thinks that the singer is working too hard.
The American rapper is Rihanna`s mentor, and the man that signed her to Def Jam Recordings at the beginning of her career.
The two are very close, and Jay-Z has reportedly become concerned Rihanna is pushing herself too hard at the moment, reports Stuff.co.nz.
She was recently down with bronchitis and laryngitis, but still performed at the Grammy and BRIT Awards.
She has also been working hard promoting her album ‘Loud’.
"Rihanna`s professional, works hard and stays away from drugs and alcohol, but Jay wants her to be careful," a source told Look.
"He told her to take a holiday for a week - she`s been working flat out and needs to get over the bronchitis, which he`s sure she`s developed as a result of stress. He told her she`ll be alright, but to keep her head down,” added the source.
