After nude pics of R&B superstar Rihanna hit the Net with a venegence earlier this month, her “allegedly” abusive ex, crooner Chris Brown, denied any involvement in the leak. But Ri-Ri ain’t buying it — and the “Umbrella” hitmaker is threatening to release several saucy snaps of Chris in retaliation.
She even threatened to go “Left Eye” on his ass: “She was saying crazy things like, ‘I’m going to burn down his house,’” a friend of the 21-year-old tells the June 7 issue of Star of Rihanna’s reaction to finding nude images of herself plastered all over the Internet.
According to pals, once she calmed down, the singer began plotting her revenge against the man accused of beating her senseless.
“She says she’s going to release her own photos of Chris. She has less-than-flattering nude pics of him that she plans on leaking. Rihanna says he’ll be really embarrassed,” whispers one in-house informant.
The diva is also planning to plant several humiliating stories about Chris’ sexual performance — or lack thereof — in a bid to leave her 20-year-old former flame shamefaced. Rihanna is already chuckling to friends that Chris was a clumsy novice at lovemaking until “she taught him everything he knows.”
“She’s going to ruin his sexy image.”
This week, it was revealed that Rihanna will testify against Chris Brown in a preliminary hearing last month stemming from felony charges that he assaulted her during a fight in Los Angeles last February.
Let me start off by saying that I am getting so damn excited for “Graffiti“. Chris is really heading in the direction I’ve always wanted him to! It’s going to be great to hear brand new music, and based on what Robert Allen has to say, this is going to be Chris’ best album to date!
Though the case against Chris Brown for the alleged assault on Rihanna earlier this year continues to play out in Los Angeles courtrooms, a friend of Brown’s says the singer is doing his best to move forward and concentrate on work.
“Chris is focused,” says songwriter Robert Allen, who is working with Brown on his upcoming album, tentatively titled Graffiti. “He knows how to deal with whatever is going on and is willing to do what he has to do to please his fans.”
To do that, Brown plans to bring a different vibe to his music. “It’s not particularly just R&B,” says Allen, who has worked on songs with Brown in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami. “Chris is trying different things and experimenting. We’ve been making things really eclectic. The direction of this album is really fun and free spirited. It’s like a collage.”
Brown, who had been keeping a low profile for about three months, recently broke his silence in a YouTube.com video, in which he declared, “I ain’t a monster.”
“You want to go away so your audience can miss you some,” Allen says of why Brown has laid low. “But he’s so happy and ready for this next album to break through and make a big impact. He wants this to be his masterpiece. He’s predicting this will be his biggest album.”
More personal photos of Chris Brown and Rihanna have leaked online.
We will NOT be posting the pictures from this, or any other leaks. We respect Chris’ privacy.
JUST SO YOU KNOW — this case will NOT go to trial until after the judge determines whether there is enough evidence for it to go to trial AFTER the prelimary hearing. No trial YET.
Rihanna’s lawyer just said the D.A. told him his client will be subpoenaed at the next court hearing.
Donald Etra said Rihanna will be called to the stand to testify at Chris Brown’s preliminary hearing on June 22.
Etra says his client will cooperate and take the stand. It’s not at all unexpected that the alleged victim would be called to the stand in a prelim.
Also today, the judge rejected a motion made by Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, asking for an order requiring the LAPD to ante up info regarding leaks in the case.
Here’s a video of Robert Rosen, the photographer that is suing Chris Brown. In this video it seems that he’s blaming nobody but HIMSELF for the incident. Why is he suing Chris again?
LOS ANGELES — The following statement was released today by Mark Geragos, attorney for Chris Brown, in response to a lawsuit filed by a photographer.
“This is a specious and frivolous lawsuit by one of the paparazzi seeking publicity and a payday. He’s done this before and lost. We will vigorously defend against this.”
Chris Brown is being sued by a photographer who claims the singer was involved in a violent incident on a Los Angeles basketball court back in March.
According to the lawsuit, filed just moments ago in L.A. County Superior Court, the photog claims it all went down just weeks after the Rihanna incident, when he shot a photo of Chris playing ball with his friends.
The photog claims Chris’ bodyguards yelled at him — so he tried to leave the gym … but an L.A. Fitness employee tried to block his escape.
The photog says he then fell down a stairwell, which allowed the bodyguards to catch up with him — where they, “picked him up by his shorts and physically assaulted him.”
The photog claims he was a paying member at the gym and had every right to be on the property.
Now the man is suing Chris and LA Fitness for assault and battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and premises liability.
Coincidentally, this is the same guy who attempted to sue Pierce Brosnan over a violent incident with the star in Malibu — but that case was dismissed.
As if Chris Brown didn’t have enough legal woes. In papers obtained by RadarOnline.com, the singer (and health club LA Fitness where the incident occurred) is getting sued by Robert Rosen for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and false imprisonment.
