Jay-Z Disapproves of the Rihanna / Chris Brown Collaborations
The-Dream may be in favor of Rihanna and Chris Brown guesting on each other’s tracks, but there’s a long list of people who still can’t quite believe what they’re hearing — and that group reportedly includes Jay-Z.
“Jay was absolutely disgusted by what Chris did to Rihanna,” an anonymous source has told Radar Online [via AceShowBiz]. “Jay doesn’t understand how a man could ever lay hands on a woman; it just goes against who he is and about. Chris is absolutely dead to Jay, he wants nothing to do with him ever.
“Now that Rihanna is hooking up with Chris and recording songs with him, Jay is deeply disappointed in her actions,” continued the source. “He can’t fathom why Rihanna is doing the things she is doing. He understands the need for forgiveness, but he is adamant that Rihanna shouldn’t forget what Chris did to her.”
As the head of Roc Nation, the multimedia corporation whose management stable includes Rihanna, Jay would presumably be one of a few people who could really bend her ear on the subject. But according to Radar’s source, his advice is going in one ear and out the other.
“Rihanna knows how Jay feels about Chris, but she doesn’t care, she is going to do what she wants,” the alleged insider claimed. “Jay has told Rihanna he will never give his blessing for what she is doing with Chris. He has told her, this isn’t going to end well, it never does. In Jay’s opinion, Chris has rage issues that he doesn’t think have been dealt with.”
