(Radio.com) Rihanna rang in the big “30” on Tuesday and celebrated on Instagram by sending a heartfelt “thank you” message to her mom. Their relationship took a violent turn in 2009 when Brown assaulted Rihanna in a rented auto on the eve of that year’s Grammy Awards following Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party.
Chris Brown and Rihanna may no longer be an item, but the “Loyal” singer clearly still cares about his ex. “You just want to listen to the Carpenters and Dolly Parton and Diana Ross”. Brown captioned the photo, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY @badgalriri”. Like earlier this month when he wanted to go on tour with Rihanna, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars. “2 for 2”. And if y’all decide to do it without me… give me 10%’. “She’s tired of being asked to talk about him during interviews, she’s tired of the endless speculation, and she’s tired of Chris feeding into the rumor mill by constantly talking about, and name checking, her”, the source told Hollywood Life.
Brown was found guilty of assault after he physically attacked his then-girlfriend Rihanna in a Lamborghini the night before the Grammys in 2009. He’s just showing her some bday love as a friend more than anything. The short clip, which showed Rihanna wearing a dusty beige top, cherry red lips and a sliver of her chest tattoo, had the then 29-year-old exclaiming “Still in my 20s!” She also happens to be her mom’s only daughter. Mutual sides. It is the first time I get to say anything. They split again in 2013. Instead, Riri chose to celebrate her third decade of slaying with a snazzy formal affair packed wall to wall with her closest family and friends.
Rihanna is said to be “done” with living in Los Angeles and her partner Hassan Jameel already spends a lot of time in the United Kingdom, so she’s keen to make it their “base” when she isn’t working.
