Los Angeles: As American singer Rihanna has reunited with her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, her family and friends have become concerned about her and are praying hard for the singer who is also indulging in drugs.
Rihanna's religious mentor, bishop Vibert Lowe, says people close to her want the singer to rid herself of all the bad habits.
"A lot of people have been praying for her and hoping that she will drop these bad habits. As a young lady she's not setting a good example. Young people look to her as a mentor, they regard her as an idol and copy her lifestyle," thesun.co.uk quoted the 64-year-old as saying.
Speaking of 24-year-old Rihanna's reunion with hip-hop star Brown, he said: "After all he did, I'd tell her to steer clear of him. He's not the correct influence on her life."
