Chris Brown Says There’s No Beef With Jay-Z, Plus He Wants to Smash Rihanna & Karrueche
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Is there a Chris Brown and Jay-Z beef? According to the reports over the years, the rapper and R&B singer seem to have some kind of falling out a few years ago after Chris assaulted Rihanna back in 2009. As a result of Chris assaulting Rihanna, he was placed on probation and became a favorite target of the media. But according to many, it would be Jay-Z who convinced Rihanna to split with Chris romantically when the former couple received major back lash from the public when they photographed together on a vacation just days after the violent incident. And to make matters even more complicated, rumors also speculated that Jay-Z began to have it out for Chris for potentially ruining the image of one of his biggest artists. Many have said that the rapper was intent on ruining Chris Brown’s career as a result of what happened between Chris and Rihanna.
So it should come as no shock that Jay-Z’s name has gotten mixed into the gossip mill as Chris and Rihanna are rumored to be rekindling their romance. Just a few weeks ago, some reports suggested that Jay-Z approached Chris at his concert and had a rather interesting conversation with him. Reports suggested that Jay-Z told Chris that he would certainly do everything in his power to ruin Chris’ career if he was to hurt Rihanna again. While neither camp confirmed or denied the gossip, it appears that Chris is finally setting the record straight.
In his recent interview with Power 106’s Big Boy, he says:
“It was like a green room backstage, he comes says what’s up to everybody. And it was cordial ‘what’s up man how you doing?’, ‘nice seeing you I ain’t seen you in a minute,’. It was real respectful, it was nothing like that. I went to the [Barclays] Center to see the show. People like to take it and run with it because they have nothing else, there’s no feud.”
Chris also says that he’s moved past his issues with Drake, despite that nasty altercation they had earlier this year that Chris with a gash on his chin and opened both artists to several lawsuits.
“I focus on me. You can’t promote that [beef]. What I promote now is making sure the kids see me in a positive light. So whatever altercation, you handle it as it comes, as a man. I don’t walk around with a vendetta or a chip on my shoulder tryna look for somebody.”
Chris also pretty much confirms that he’s most likely sleeping with both Rihanna and Karrueche currently. When asked who he would save from drowning and take to “Smash Hotel” he says “both.”
