Rihanna, HollywoodLife.com spoke to a friend of yours who told us your friendship with Drake is merely a ploy attempt to make Chris jealous. I think it’s wonderful that you’re not trying to spite Chris, because it will only fill your life with toxic energy you don’t need while on tour.
Rihanna, you won’t always be fighting with Chris Brown; someday, you two may become friends again — or even more! But for now, since you’ve chosen to remain friends with his arch-nemesis and your ex-fling Drake, I think it’s great that you’re not doing it to throw it in his face.
Rihanna: I’m Happy You’re Not Remaining Friends With Drake To Hurt Chris Brown
Rihanna, I can tell you from experience that trying to hurt an ex-boyfriend immediately after a breakup is the last thing you want to do. When you’re reeling from a split, it’s easy to feel like you’re grasping for straws. You might feel the need to go on lots of dates, throw momentos away, say mean things to that person, or hang out with an ex.
We know you recently re-connected with Drake over the phone when you called to thank him for skipping the 2013 BET Awards. You were afraid he and Chris would fight, and you were happy Drake handled the situation maturely. After all, Drake was at the center of the massive fight with Chris at W.I.P. on June 13, 2013. Bottles were thrown, people were injured and the two have been feuding ever since.
But now that HollywoodLife.com has spoken to an insider, who explained your reasoning for speaking with Drake, I think it’s admirable that you’re following your heart. Here’s what we were told:
[Rihanna] will always have a love-hate relationship with Chris. Now with Drake, she likes him as a friend. It’s genuine. I know it seems like everything is about Chris with her, but that’s not the case all the damn time. Drake’s the homie, she likes his music and him as a person. I really don’t think she’s trying to get under Chris’ skin with Drake. They use to talk back in the dayp; it’s not like [this] is new with him.
You are 100 percent allowed to speak to anyone you want, and that includes your exes!
If you were to hang out with Drake only to make Chris upset, you would end up hurting both men and losing them forever.
