Ever since Chris Brown and Rihanna’s infamous domestic dispute in 2009, many have assumed that Rihanna’s mentor, Jay-Z, has not only been protective of Rihanna, but a threat to Brown. And, when Brown and Rihanna went public with their friendship this fall, the rumors grew. Some even claimed that when Brown and Rihanna showed up together at Jay-Z’s Barclay show last month, Jay threatened to end Brown’s career if he ever hurt Rihanna again. But, Brown is now sounding off about the nagging rumors, saying that they just aren’t true.
In part three of Brown’s rare interview with Big Boy of LA’s Power 106, Brown says that Jay has been nothing but “cordial” with him.
“It was cordial,” Brown said of the backstage exchange he had with Jay. “It was real respectful. It was nothing like that. I went to the Center to see the show. People like to take it and run with it, because they have nothing else.”
Well, we’re glad that things are at least cordial between Jay and Brown, and that the singer doesn’t have another high-profile beef to deal with. Check out some of his most infamous beefs below. – nicholas robinson
