Although Chris denied he’s dating Rihanna during an interview with LA’s Power 106 radio station, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the radio station combined two different interviews — one from last year and one from March 29. The couple is still together!
LA’s Power 106 radio station caused a lot of confusion on March 29 when they tweeted that Chris Brown, 23, told deejay Big Boy he’s no longer dating Rihanna. But it seems that Chris’ comment was from a different interview — one from last year, a source close to the situation reveals to HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
A source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “The Power 106 clip [that is going around the internet] is partly new, but then it cuts to old footage, and then back to new again. You’ll notice he’s wearing two different sets of clothes [in the video].”
Chris Brown Denies Dating Rihanna
Although the interview, including a clip where Chris is heard saying he’s split from Rihanna, doesn’t air until April 1, LA’s Power 106 radio station tweeted a snippet on March 29.
The radio station wrote, “‘Are you still w/ @Rihanna?’ @ChrisBrown: ‘Uh, no-that’s the short answer’ just now to @BigBoy POWER 106 LA @TuneIn.”
HollywoodLife.com learned, however, that this was merely a clip from a previous interview, intertwined with the new one. The tweet wasn’t exactly clear.
From Chris’ responses to other questions about Rihanna, it’s clear he wasn’t comfortable discussing his girlfriend during the March 29 interview. When Big Boi asked Chris about the last time he saw Rihanna, he awkwardly replied, “I plead the 5th. You know I didn’t lie to you man, I just didn’t tell the truth. Man it has been a minute though, cuz I haven’t had a chance to go out there on the tour yet. ‘Cause I’ve been working, but I seen her right before she went out.”
Rihanna and Chris are definitely still an item — hooray!
UPDATE: A rep from Power 106 has cleared up the confusion, saying, “Chris Brown’s comment of that he’s not with Rihanna was from when Chris was here last, which Big Boy used to set up the question he asked Chris this morning.” So, their tweet (which has since been deleted) was purposely misleading — Chris did not say he wasn’t with Rihanna during his most recent interview.
HollywoodLifers, why do you think the radio tweeted that?
