These new photos, which surfaced over the weekend, show the former couple snuggling and kissing in bed. How nice Chris Brown looks as he canoodles with his former love. Could the accused singer possibly be the one who leaked the pics as part of his “I’m Not A Monster” campaign???
According to Rihanna‘s lawyers, the singer has been subpoenaed to testify in the felony assault case against her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, and she’s scheduled to attend his hearing on June 22. Her attorney says that RiRi “absolutely will comply” with the court’s subpoena, which means this hearing just got a lot more interesting. What crazy outfit will she wear? Will her hair be in a mohawk or a mullet? And most importantly – what is she going to say about the events that transpired on February 8?
Looks like Chris Brown is ready to return to the limelight. Rapper Bow Wow has posted several videos of himself hanging out with the singer online, and not so he can apologize. In one, a surprisingly flip Brown acknowledges he “ain’t been out there in a minute” but that a new album, Graffiti, is coming, along with a single this summer (“we ain’t going nowhere!”). “Everybody that’s haters, they just been haters…I’m not a monster.”
In another video, Brown addresses rumors that he was sporting a black eye while watching the Orlando Magic with Usher last weekend. “All the blog sites are liars! You lie. No black eye!” Yeah, but what about Rihanna‘s?
There were rumors six months ago that they may have hooked up, and now they’re back again. Yep, could “Rihanye” be more than a product of our word-mashing imaginations? Rihanna was spotted coming out of Kanye West‘s NYC apartment this weekend, she was wearing the outfit she should have worn to the Met Ball. Sexy, tight, and short, we would say that is a dress designed to impress. And perhaps a little more effort than you would normally make in order just to visit a friend one afternoon? Hm. Ã‚Â
Note to Rihanna and Victoria Beckham: this is how you do it! Beyonceturned up at hip London hangout Bungalow 8 looking so dreamily stylish we can hardly bear it. With her shoes and bag adding some on-trend sparkle, Bey keeps it cool tone-wise with the rest of the outfit, wearing grey leggings and a summery white vest and jacket. And those shoulder-pads are just the right side of big, unlike Ri-Ri and Posh’s recent horrors. We salute you! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Rihanna continued to increase her public profile at Island Def Jam’s Spring Collection party last night, where she accepted an award for selling 12 million albums, hobnobbed with labelmates like Pete Wentz, and unveiled the video for Kanye West‘s “Paranoid.” West barely appears in the video, which instead features Rihanna in bed in lingerie, dreaming about driving angrily and laughing like a crazy person. Oh yeah—Rihanna doesn’t sing a note. Awkward?
A guerilla clip shot at the screening has been pulled from the web, but the full video is expected to be posted soon. Is Kanye exploiting her situation or just collaborating with a friend?
Rihanna spent Monday night bowling in Manhattan, but she didn’t strike out. Page Six spotted the singer smooching with Aubrey Graham, an aspiring rapper best known for playing Jimmy Brooks on DeGrassi: The Next Generation. “They were really cute together,” said their source, noting they left around midnight. Graham, Drake to Canadian rap fans, plans to release his debut album by the end of 2009. Think he’ll get her to cameo?
Wow – she does have teeth! Rihanna gave the paps a flash of those pearly whites for the first time in months yesterday in NYC. We’re so used to seeing the fierce star looking, um, pretty fierce, that we’re taken aback by this new smiling Riri. What’s her secret? Is it that she’s really pleased Shia LeBeoufhas started spouting off that they dated but the “spark wasn’t there?” Unlikely. Is it that she knows that red lipstick and that oh-so-80s jacket go amazingly well together? Maybe. Or perhaps it’s just because she’s come out the side of the Chris Brown scandal cooler and more admired than ever. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Rihanna may not have spoken out in public about her split from alleged abuser Chris Brown, but she’s got a mouthful to say in her new song. Kanye Westposted the demo, “Silly Boy,” on his blog this week, in which RiRi bashes her ex with the help of Lady GaGa. She sings:
“I said I’m not coming back. You fooled me once but you can’t have that ego turning. Just too bad for you, that when you had me. Didn’t know what to do, she’s over you. Cause you had a good girl, good girl, girl. That’s a keeper. You had a good girl, good girl but didn’t know how to treat her. So silly boy get out my face. Why do you like the way regrets taste?”
Ouch. You can listen – and download – the super-catchy song in its entirety on Kanye’s blog – click here for the goods or listen to the song below. It can’t be a coincidence that he decided to drop this track right after naked pics of the songbird leaked on the web. We know where Kanye’s loyalty lies – and now, so does Chris Brown.

Rihanna has allegedly jetted to Hawaii after embarassing naked pictures, rumored to be of the starlet, leaked onto the web late last week. The singer is reportedly “freaking out” over the images, which show her posing in a hotel bathroom. The woman pictured in the photos has not been confirmed as Rihanna, and the NY Daily News wisely points out that her many tattoos are not visible on the lovely lady pictured. But so far Rihanna’s reps are not denying that the photos are real. Hmmm – kinda makes ya wonder!
Chris Brown, who seems like a logical suspect in the leak, is denying any involvment in the photo scandal. The singer and alleged batterer released a statement to Essence magazine through his rep, stating, “This is both a false and defamatory statement. Chris has not released or ‘leaked’ any photos of Rihanna or anybody else for that matter.”Ã‚Â
