This is the definition of class. Despite a nasty breakup with Chris Brown that included a harsh Twitter feud, a source close to RiRi tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she’s still in his corner.
Chris Brown is up for the Best Male R&B Artist award tonight, June 30, at the BET Awards, and you’ll be shocked to hear who’s rooting for him to win.
Rihanna Supporting Chris Brown At BET Awards
A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that despite a bad breakup and all the other great nominees – Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Timberlake, and Usher – Rihanna still wants Chris to take home the award.
“You know she does,” says the source. “It’s going to be tough as nails for him to pull it off, but she’s hoping he’ll win.”
Rihanna arguably knows Chris better than anyone, and the source states that she understands how much it’ll mean to Chris if he wins. “He needs this more than ever now. It would help his confidence and lift his head up and she really hopes he gets it.”
Rihanna & Chris Brown: ‘They’re Cool’ Now
The Unapologetic singer’s sentiments prove how maturely she’s now handling her split from Chris. It can’t be easy breaking up with your boyfriend and watching him go back to his ex, and Rihanna did lash out occasionally — a few tweets come to mind — but she’s clearly no longer holding a grudge.
Another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that any ill will the two stars had towards each other has been dropped. “They’re cool; the respect is there, and so is love. It’s squashed now. She’s doing her tour and he’s here, besides what’s the point? They already said what they had to say to each other way back when,” the source insists.
So while a reunion still seems out of the question for Rihanna and Chris, it is nice to hear that they’re now on better terms, and that they’re back to supporting each other. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
