The Chris Brown-Rihanna trainwreck keeps chugging along down its dysfunctional tracks. The songbird and her alleged abuser are apparently recording a duet together, in an odd attempt to distract people from their volatile relationship with some sick beats.
RiRi and Chris are apparently holed up in a Santa Monica studio with producer Polow Da Don, who has worked with Chris before, as well as Will Smith, Fergie and Usher. In addition to wooing her with his voice, Chris is also trying to win Rihanna back with a brand new $50,000 diamond ring, which he picked up at Van Cleef & Arpels in Florida.
It sure seems like he’s being sweet, but rumor has it that it was Chris himself who warned Usher to shut his trap after he spoke out against Chris’ battering. “Usher was basically forced to issue a retraction,” an insider told NYDN. “After all of his comments came out, Usher got a call from Chris, who said ‘I’m going to see you b—es’ — meaning ‘I will eventually see you out, and this is going to be a problem.’” [Photo: GettyImages]
