Over the weekend Chris Brown was clubbing and took the microphone to give a message to the people….
“Every guy in this building has said one thing to their female. If you’re not an insecure [person], and you let her have fun with her friends, I applaud you. But you gotta say that one thing to her, and I made this s**t up.”
He then starting singing, [“Don’t make me have to tell you again that that’s my p**** baby. It is mine, baby, babe, mine. Don’t make me have to tell you again that that’s my p**** baby. It’s mine girl, it’s mine girl, it’s mine, so you better not give it away.”
ummmm….so you own her…uh…vajay???
Chris Brown everybody…
CB did get caught by paparazzi later and they asked him to speak about the controversial comment. Brown said “It’s a song … it’s a song … that’s all it is.”
Meanwhile Rihanna had to cancel her concert in Boston due to having laryngitis. It was doctors orders not to perform.
Not only is Chris Brown dealing with the drama behind his fight with Frank Ocean, but the courts are claiming Chris Brown faked some of his community service hours he needed for his assault with Rihanna back in 2009.
Prosecutors are trying to prove Chris Brown got officials in Virginia to say he completed community service hours at a day care, when he was never there.
CB is obviously trying to prove otherwise.
The best part about this whole court case is today Rihanna showed up WITH Chris Brown at the court house. When his brutal beat down was the reason for the community service in the first place.
Ever since Rihanna has been seen with Chris Brown again she has gotten non stop criticism for her choice.
She finally opened up to Rolling Stone magazine as to why she took Chris Brown back saying “I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.”
She continued, “I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
She understands why people are upset about it but ultimately she wants to do what makes her happy BUT she wants everyone to know she will not stand for C.B. to treat her the way he did back in 2009.
She said “Listen, I’ll tell you right now: I don’t have to take it. If he gives me that again, here’s what I give him: nothing. I just walk away. He doesn’t have that luxury of f*cking up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
Hopefully this time things turn out better and she is able to keep her word!
Sources say since Rihanna has been back together with Chris Brown she has been even more unpredictable.
Someone from her camp said “She’s always been unpredictable, but it’s worse than ever — adding that “more than one” person who works in her camp is looking for new employment. The insider said that Rihanna doesn’t bother to “keep meetings” or “be on time to anything.” Another source said, “She’ll commit to something, and show up two hours late.”
If Rihanna isn’t careful she might end up alone with only Chris Brown to rely on…and who knows if that’s what best for her!
Chris Brown and Rihanna have been seen together on several occasions within the past month. Ever since Rihanna let Chris Brown back into her life as “friends” people have been wondering if they are more than just friends.
Crihanna has been on the club scene since Tuesday. Tuesday Night the duo was seen at a NYC night club arriving 5 minutes apart but seen together inside. The following night they were sitting together at a Jay Z concert.
Now Chris Browns girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, is in the mix and the couple has actually split up because of the relationship between CB and Ri Ri.
Chris Brown says “I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna.” He adds “I have decided to be single to focus on my career. I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna.”
OR, you just want to get back with Rihanna, come on, we all know it’s gonna happen!

Celebrities are just like us and even get sick. Rihanna has been suffering from flu like symptoms for the past week or so. She posted a twit pic on twitter of an IV in her arm! A source close to Rihanna said the singer is on the mend and was not suffering from anything serious: “She had a fever and flu since last week and needed an IV, but is fine now.”
Rihanna missed a dress rehersal for SNL last weekend due to the sickness and all the traveling is probably not helping.
