Rihanna Might Head to Love Rehab

Battleship Premiere - Rihanna

Might as well face it, you’re addicted to love!

OK, so some of my younger readers not get that reference (and if you don’t, here you go), but according to Grazia Daily, our beloved Rihanna might be addicted to love–specifically, Chris Brown’s love.

(If you’ll remember, Rihanna and Chris Brown began dating in 2006, but split up after Brown assaulted her after a pre-Grammy party in 2009. Since then, their on-again, off-again relationship has been a roller coaster of restraining orders, anger management, probation appearances, and tense media interviews.)

Reportedly, Rihanna is considering spending a six-week break from her current Diamonds World Tour getting some relationship and sexual recovery, or what the media are referring to as love therapy and love rehab.


Truth Is, The Unfolding Chrianna Saga Scares Us

Grazia Daily‘s source claims Rihanna is having an extra tough time moving on after her most recent split with Brown.

Rihanna is still desparately [sic] in love with Chris. It’s like she’s obsessed with him, and although he’s told her it’s over, she just can’t get over him.

So, where does one obtain love rehab?

Sources say Rihanna is looking at The Ranch, a 2,000-acre horse and cattle ranch in Nunnelly, Tennessee. The Ranch specializes in treatment programs for a wide array of issues, from eating disorders and PTSD to substance abuse and sexual addiction.

If this is true, Rihanna would check in to The Center for Relationship and Sexual Recovery at The Ranch, which has separate programs for men and women:

Our primary therapeutic goal at The Center is to disrupt and eliminate problem patterns of sexual behavior, while helping our clients regain dignity, self-respect, and the trust of those they love. Both men and women can suffer from these types of issues, which are often exacerbated by alcohol and drug abuse, unresolved grief, and related life stressors, such as early trauma, neglect, and abuse. The Center’s treatment process is designed to help identify and resolve these concerns, often found to be the underlying catalysts for sexual acting out and intimacy disruption.

Some parts of that description seem to resonate with what we know of Rihanna’s situation as it relates to Chris Brown and her relationship–romantic or otherwise–with him; other parts–such as acting out sexually–I don’t think we know enough, if anything, about to comment on.

Where Does Rihanna Go From Here?

What are YOUR thoughts, readers? Do you have any experience with “love rehab,” personally or professionally? What are your opinions on it?

Do you think this sounds like something that could benefit Rihanna?
