Keeping her head

R&B star Rihana suffered from such painful headaches when she was growing up that doctors worried she was suffering from a brain tumour.

R&B star Rihana suffered from such painful headaches when she was growing up that doctors worried she was suffering from a brain tumour.

The 19-year-old singer underwent tomography scans from the age of eight until she was 14, when her parents divorced.

It turned out the cause of Rihana's headaches was the stress of her parents' stormy relationship - her dad Ronald Fenty had an addiction to crack cocaine, which he has now conquered.

She said: "I wouldn't cry. I wouldn't get upset. It was just all in here [her head].

"It's not great memories. But it helped to make me stronger." - Wenn
