No two people have seemingly enticed, mesmerized and infuriated a nation of music fans by their reunion more than controversial exes Chris Brown and Rihanna. The two recently came together after a three-year musical separation for remixes to the songs “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music,” compelling many to voice their support and their anger over the reunion. Though both Rihanna and Brown have shrugged off any and all criticism over the collaborations, rumors are spreading that Rihanna’s mentor, Jay-Z, is none too pleased with the reunion.
According to Radar Online, in the days that followed Brown’s infamous 2009 assault on Rihanna, the Bajan pop star found solace in Jay-Z and the Roc Nation general has since been anti-Chris Brown.
“Jay was absolutely disgusted by what Chris did to Rihanna. Jay doesn’t understand how a man could ever lay hands on a woman; it just goes against who he is and about. Chris is absolutely dead to Jay, he wants nothing to do with him ever,” a source claimed.
But now that Rihanna is back to working with Brown – and possibly back in his arms and bedroom – Jay is allegedly disappointed by his protégé.
“Now that Rihanna is hooking up with Chris and recording songs with him, Jay is deeply disappointed in her actions. He can’t fathom why Rihanna is doing the things she is doing. He understands the need for forgiveness, but he is adamant that Rihanna shouldn’t forget what Chris did to her. Jay wonders what kind of message this is sending to Rihanna’s young female fans. Rihanna knows how Jay feels about Chris, but she doesn’t care, she is going to do what she wants.”
The source also claims that the birth of Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce’s, daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, has made him “even more protective of the women in his life. Jay has told Rihanna he will never give his blessing for what she is doing with Chris. He has told her, this isn’t going to end well, it never does. In Jay’s opinion, Chris has rage issues that he doesn’t think have been dealt with.”
It’s unclear whether the report is true, but if so, it will be interesting to see how Rihanna and Jay-Z’s relationship plays out in the coming months as she and Brown are sure to keep their reunion going. And as for Brown, well, though he may already have a number of enemies, adding an influential industry powerhouse like Jay-Z to that list is far from a good thing.
What’s your thoughts do you agree with Jay or should Jay change is view?
