Jay-Z “Deeply Disappointed” Over Chris Brown and Rihanna Collaboration
Fans were shocked to learn that Rihanna agreed to collaborate on multiple songs with former boyfriend Chris Brown, just three years after he was arrested for assaulting her. But one very important person in Rihanna’s life isn’t pleased with any collaborations (romantic or otherwise) with Chris Brown: RiRi’s mentor and friend, Jay-Z.
RadarOnline is reporting that Jay is “deeply disappointed” by Rihanna’s decision to spend time with Chris — especially since she sought comfort and advice from him after the 2009 assault.
“Jay was absolutely disgusted by what Chris did to Rihanna," a source close to the situation reveals. "Jay doesn't understand how a man could ever lay hands on a woman; it just goes against who he is and about.”
Following the 2009 incident, Brown turned himself in to police and was charged with assault and making criminal threats — both felony offenses. He was later sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor.
“Chris is absolutely dead to Jay, he wants nothing to do with him ever,” the source continues. “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.”
Furthermore, Jay-Z is also worried about the effect Rihannah’s actions will have on her fans — many of whom have already questioned her choice to reconnect with the rapper. “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.”
Despite their two recent musical collaborations — Brown’s song “Turn Up the Music” and Rihannah’s tune “Birthday Cake” — the source insists that Jay-Z will “never give his blessing for what [Rihanna] is doing with Chris.
We hope RiRi comes to her senses before Jay-Z thinks she's a good girl gone completely bad.
