Chris Brown may not be officially broken up but sources say Rihanna may be heeding the advice of her mentor and former boss Jay-Z. Jay-Z, a longtime associate and mentor of sorts for the Barbadian superstar, is said to have told the “Take A Bow” singer to cut ties with Chris Brown.
“Jay-Z told Rihanna she needs to cut things out with Chris, at least in public,” a source to US Weekly.
“They’re taking a break”. News of Jay-Z’s advice is not surprising, if of course true, because he was previously quoted to have as “hit the ceiling” when news of Brown and Rihanna’s alleged altercation was made public in February.
Whether or not Rihanna will completely cut ties with Brown remains to be seen, but it may be a good idea to do so. Chris Brown is due in court early next month to face charges related to the February incident, including making criminal threats.
Regarding Young Breezy’s ‘secret hearing’:
R&B singer Chris Brown’s much-discussed ‘secret’ hearing has been scrapped according to sources. Originally set for Monday, the now canceled court date, was intended to include Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos but not Brown himself. As early as Tuesday night, sources say the deal had been axed with no explanation.
News of the canceled hearing comes after sources told TMZ that Rihanna was the subject of the hearing. According to that very source, Rihanna was to be removed from the witness list and cleared of testimony. At this time no one seems to know what the ‘secret’ hearing was about, however, it has been confirmed that it will not be rescheduled.
“The next date is April 6 for the arraignment. The hearing is not being rescheduled,” a court clerk told E!. Chris Brown, as previously reported, faces two felony counts including making criminal threats.
At the end of the day, Chris Brown better face serious consequences for his action. Period.
