Chris Brown has turned to reality TV star Drita D'Avanzo to help him sort out his love life.
The "Yeah 3X" singer - who dumped his girlfriend of more than one year Karrueche Tran last week because of his "friendship" with his former flame Rihanna and admitted he is in love with both girls - has found an unlikely confidante in Mob Wives star Drita.
The reality star told the New York Post's Page Six ,"We don't talk every day." But she said she could relate to Chris because she has been in similar situations in the past. She said, "I have been in relationships that were rocky," but declined to comment further on any specific discussions she's had with the singer.
Chris is said to have sought Drita's advice about his high profile love triangle but she would only confirm they are friends, saying she first met the 23-year-old R&B singer last August at New York nightclub W.I.P. on the same night he was involved in a bottle-throwing fight with Drake's entourage.
Chris Brown is determined to make a success of his relationship with Rihanna the second time around.
The "Yeah 3x" hitmaker recently split from girlfriend Karrueche Tran because he couldn't give up his "friendship" with his ex Rihanna - whom he was convicted of assaulting in 2009 - and friends of Chris say he wants to put things right with the "We Found Love" singer.
"He's doing s**t right this time and is going to really try to make this s**t work with Rihanna. They got caught up a few times, being drunk and doing some backwards... s**t in the club but, come on, they [are] young and in love. People be getting it twisted, thinking my boy a dog. He ain't. Not at all," a pal said.
Chris recently posted a candid video he has named "The Real Chris Brown" onto the internet and in it the musician is seen discussing his romantic dilemma over the two women. "I'm stressed out ... when you share history with somebody, then you tend to fall in love with somebody else, it's kinda difficult. Is there such thing as loving two people? I don't know if that's possible, but for me, I feel like that," he said in the video.
Oprah Winfrey has been named Hollywood's highest-paid female star.
The TV star earned an estimated $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012 thanks to her now-defunct Oprah Winfrey Show, OWN TV network, satellite radio station, production company Harpo and O magazine, figures compiled by Forbes magazine for their Richest Women in Entertainment list show.
Oprah's fortune is a staggering $107 million more than the second-placed star on the list, newest X Factor judge Britney Spears, who generated $58 million in the time period, $1 million more than Taylor Swift, who was named in third place.
Rihanna and Ellen DeGeneres tied for fourth place, with each bringing in $53 million, with Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez tying just below them with earnings of $52 million.
Chris Brown and Rihanna allegedly hooked up in a club on Monday night. The former couple were spotted kissing on the dancefloor at New York City hotspot Griffin before moving to the back of the club to get some privacy.
An onlooker told Celebuzz that Chris made a beeline for his ex-girlfriend, who was sitting at a neighboring table, and "climbed over the center to get to her." The R&B singer was seen "dancing on the table for Rihanna" and the two appeared "very smitten" as they were "hugging and kissing, and they went to the back of the club alone together." Further reports state that the pair were locked in a bathroom together for 30 minutes while two bodyguards guarded the door.
Rihanna reportedly vomited at her VIP table on a night out in Las Vegas.
The singer was partying with pals at the 1 OAK nightspot in the city after her performance at the iHeart Radio festival over the weekend when the celebrations became too much for her and she struggled to control herself before throwing up into a napkin.
"She threw up in a napkin. The guy with her handed her a white towel to clean up," a source told The Sun. However, the incident didn't ruin the 24-year-old star's night as she carried on and was later spotted heading to notorious strip club Spearmint Rhino.
Rihanna is "proud" of Chris Brown.
The former couple - who split up in February 2009 after he physically assaulted her - shared a hug when he won the Best Male Video prize at the MTV Video Music Awards, and she appeared to peck Chris on the cheek to congratulate him and friends of the pair say Rihanna is proud of the way he has turned his life around.
"They on a whole new level right now man - you feel me? [Rihanna's] proud of [Chris] for winning awards and giving back to the community and being a role model. That's what kind of s**t [he's] on right now. [Chris is] doing his thing and [he's] being good. That's what's up," a source said.
This comes after Chris was forced to deny a new tattoo on his neck depicts Rihanna's battered face after he hit her. The inking appears to show a woman with the same injuries Rihanna sported after the altercation - including a black eye and bruised lip - but the tattoo is a MAC cosmetics design of a skull associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead, according to Chris' representative.
Rihanna and Chris Brown had a public kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Los Angeles last night. The former couple - who split up in February 2009 after he assaulted her in a car - hugged when he won the Best Male Video prize at the event at the Staples Center, and she appeared to peck him on the cheek to congratulate him.
Rihanna herself picked up the biggest award of the night, Video of the Year, for "We Found Love."
Rihanna has branded French people "f***ing insane" after nearly causing a riot in Paris.
The 24-year-old singer sparked "absolute chaos" when she posted the number of her Eurostar train and her arrival time at the Gare du Nord train station in the French capital city on Twitter, which resulted in hundreds of screaming fans turning up to see their idol after her trip from London.
Following the frenzy on Saturday, Rihanna launched a foul-mouthed tirade on the social networking site against her "out of control" fans. In a series of tweets, she wrote, "The French are f***ing insane!!! FYI, if u push me, you WILL get pushed the phuck back! Papz and crazies included!!!! I just had to fight my way out of a damn train station!!! SMH Y'all are outta control with this s**t in Paris!!! (sic)"
Rihanna was later blasted by security chiefs at Gare du Nord for her "utterly irresponsible" behavior. A security chief at the station is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying, "It was absolute chaos, and all Rihanna's fault. What Rihanna did was utterly irresponsible. There was genuine fear among other people at the station."
Rihanna has had another secret meeting with her violent ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Chris - who was convicted of assaulting the singer three years ago - visited her house in Los Angeles this week ahead of her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
"They are getting on really well at the moment and spent time catching up and relaxing. He's watched clips of her interview with Oprah and seems to be touched," a source said.
A section of the interview shows Rihanna in tears over the assault: "It was humiliating. It was a confusing space to be in because as angry as I was, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who's going to help him?"
Rihanna lost her "best friend" when she split from Chris Brown.
The "We Found Love" singer has revealed it was "humiliating" when the R&B star violently assaulted her in February 2009 and says she was in a "dark" place following their break up in an emotional new interview with Oprah Winfrey. In floods of tears, Rihanna told the chat show host, "It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. I lost my best friend. I was resentful. I held a grudge. I was dark." The emotional superstar added, "I am super duper terrified of the pedestal that comes with fame."
