The Chrihanna debacle hits close to home for Ne-Yo:
“I spoke to Rihanna. She says she’s fine. She didn’t go into detail about what happened,” Ne-Yo told MTV early this week. “That just really… that hurt me to my heart, man.” For Ne-Yo, the situation between Chris Brown and Rihanna hits close to home.
In recent years the trio has been well connected. They’ve toured together, recorded songs like “Hate That I Love You;’ and shared the stage at major events like the MTV Video Music Awards. In fact, it was Ne-Yo who sort of confirmed Brown and Rihanna’s relationship late last year, stating “They tear hair out of each other and argue. I’ve seen them kiss and make up like other couples do.”
That being said, Ne-Yo remains loyal to both stars, including Chris Brown. “I’m not going to crucify him,” says the “Miss Independent” singer. “I haven’t had a chance to talk to Chris yet. I just wanna sit down and talk to that dude and just explain if he doesn’t understand: ‘That’s not something that’s excusable, bruh. You have to get a little smarter about whatever it is going on in your relationship. You have to get a little smarter about how you handle certain situations.”
Finally. Here’s a cat who’s not afraid to admit that Breezy truly f*ked up. On a mildly lighter note, it appears as though RiRi made the best of her 21st birthday:
“Rihanna, accompanied by some pals, first went to an early showing of Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail in Santa Monica” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “She looked beautiful. She was wearing glasses, so you couldn’t see her eyes, but she looked fine to me.”
After the movie, Rihanna hit up the Hollywood Hills for a birthday party in her honor. “People were scrambling at her feet to make sure her every wish was granted. There was birthday cake, champagne, you name it!” a party guest tells Life & Style.
And how did the songstress handle all the attention? “She was a bit shy at first and kept her glasses on most of the night. But once she saw her old crew and got used to being out, she really got into it. She was even dancing!” the party guest reveals. “You could tell she was happy to be out. She needed it.”
The party wrapped up with her friends serenading her with “Happy Birthday.” “That definitely made her smile!” the party guest says. “She’s healing and it will take time, but she still looked beautiful.”
