Looks like Rihanna is living up to the name of her very own fragrance Reb’l Fleur (which means rebel flower) because she has let her camp know that no matter what ANYONE says, she will be around Chris Brown.
Rihanna is managed by Jay-Z’s management firm, Roc Nation, who advised RiRi to stay away from Chris Brown since their infamous Grammy incident 3 years ago. RiRi isn’t trying to hear it and says she’ll be doing whatever the hell she wants, when she wants and no one is going to stop her!
“Her management banned her from reuniting with Chris, but she said she’ll do whatever the hell she wants to,” said a source, adding, “Rihanna is rebelling. She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself. They fear she’ll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them.”
In Elle’s May cover story, Rihanna says of any backlash over a re-association with Brown: “People end up wasting their time on the blogs ranting away, and that’s all right . . . Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”
She says following the fallout from Brown assaulting her, she was given an opportunity to express herself more openly: “That was my opening . . . one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want . . . I don’t have anything to hide.”
