Chris Brown and Rihanna may have kept their distance during the Grammy’s, but they’re not fooling anyone. It’s rumored that the former couple will be collaborating on the remix of Rihanna’s song “Birthday Cake.” Pair that with Brown attending her birthday party on Monday night, and we have cause to worry.
Brown’s return to the Grammy’s brought controversy as celebrities and viewers were vocal about his performance Sunday night. Twitter trended #RIPChrisBrown after he tweeted, “Hate all u want becuz I got a Grammy now! That’s the ultimate F*ck Off!” Is it us, or does that sound like a man who is NOT sorry for beating his ex?
Rihanna, we love your new blonde locks, but maybe the bleach is getting to your head. What do you think about this couple reconciling?
After days spent arguing with Whitney Houston’s family over whether or not he’d attend his ex-wife funeral, multiple sources confirm that Bobby Brown continued arguing with his former in-laws today.
And actually left the memorial after just 20 minutes as a result.
Both E! News and TMZ report that Brown brought an entourage of nine people in to the Newark church. It’s unclear exactly what happened from there, but the singer was spotted exiting the house of worship shortly after the service began.
“I am at Whitney’s funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!” Al Sharpton Tweeted, while Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson says a “seating arrangement” dispute was at play.
Brown also has a concert gig tonight in Connecticut with New Edition, but it’s believed this disagreement with Whitney’s family is the reason why he left the premises so quickly.
UPDATE: Brown has released the following statement:
“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina.
“In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”
With Bobbi Kristina Brown out of the hospital, but with family members still concerned over her well-being, Bobby Brown has released his first public statement regarding his 18-year old daughter with Whitney Houston.
“My daughter did visit with doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles,” said the singer, seen below touching down in Los Angeles to be there for his child. “She has been released and is presently with my family, including her siblings.”
Bobbi was actually under physician supervision twice this weekend, first on Saturday and then on Sunday, both times in panic over her mom’s passing.
“Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her,” says Brown. “However we will get through this tragedy as a family.”
Meanwhile, President Obama has also chimed in on the sad situation. Describing his boss as an “admirer” of Houston’s “immense talent,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said this afternoon:
“I know that his thoughts and prayers are with her family, especially her daughter. It’s a tragedy to lose somebody so talented at such a young age.”
Nearly three years after the infamous assault that ended their relationship and nearly put him in jail, the two are working toward getting back together, according one of the most prolific and unreliable celebrity news sources around! That’s crazy!
Chris Brown and Rihanna’s Tweets this week got people talking, and MediaTakeOut (dot) com has apparently “been hearing reports for some time” that Rihanna and Brown are working on “RECONCILIATION” (their word, and unnecessary capitals).
SO is it happening or not?
According to the celebrity gossip site, a person close to Chris Brown says he’d like nothing more than to get back with her. But since the “incident” Chris felt that he’d destroyed any and all chances of a relationship with his “soul mate.”
So he stayed away from her, by law, at her request.
But now things have changed. Rihanna and Chris are speaking to each other on the phone, exchanging IMs and text messages to boot. Insanity!
She’s in Barbados right now (check out these bikini photos!) but they reportedly plan to meet up when Rihanna returns to Los Angeles next week.
Chris is said to be ecstatic, but Jay Z and Rihanna’s managers are reportedly furious that they’re back on speaking terms and may reconcile?
Will they? Is any or all of this true? Stay tuned …
