Bebo controversy

In 2007 Rice had funding and coaching suspended for 'unprofessional behaviour' after a photograph appeared on the social networking site Bebo. Rice's father argued that the episode had been "blown out of all proportion" and that his son "likes the odd night out with his mates, the same as any other 18-year-old."
