Chris Brown: I Still Wanna Bang Rihanna!

So many years have passed since Chris Brown savagely beat his then-girlfriend Rihanna that many people may have lost sight of the severity of his crimes.

Some might even be tempted to give the singer a pass under the impression that he's "learned his lesson" or "changed his ways."

Loving FUBU

Don't give in to that way of thinking.

Not only does Brown not deserve a second chance, he's proven repeatedly over the years that he has no intention of even trying to reform.

He remains -- proudly -- the same abusive, misogynistic egomaniac he's always been.

But because fame is one of the most potent drugs on the planet, and it's hard to think ill of yourself when you're constantly surrounded by yes men, Chris seems to genuinely believe he's done nothing wrong.

Because his most egregious crimes occurred during a time in which assaults by powerful men were quickly swept under the rug, his career has survived, and he emerged from the Rihanna scandal virtually unscathed.

As evidence that Breezy hasn't changed in the slightest, insiders now claim Chris is fixated on the idea of reconciling with his most famous ex.

Chris Brown Sings and Sucks

“Chris cannot get over Rihanna, even after all these years,� a source close to the singer tells Hollywood Life.

“Despite the long time since they have been together, and the many tears they have both cried over their relationship, Chris still thinks about Rihanna all the time.�

The insider goes on to say that RiRi has become the subject of a 24-hour obsession for Brown. Sounds healthy.

Rihanna in Pink

“In the mornings, sometimes Chris likes to look at her Instagram account and in the evenings he thinks about her when he can’t fall asleep at night," says the source.

“He thinks Rihanna keeps looking sexier — and better with age — which makes it impossible for him to get over her,� the insider adds.

“He still fantasizes that one day they might get back together again and have a happy ending. Chris really is heartbroken over Rihanna and the memories of her prevent him from moving on with someone new.�

Rihanna at 2018 Grammys

This certainly isn't the first time that rumors about Chris and Rihanna getting back together have made their way across the social media landscape.

Thankfully, thus far, they've all turned out to be bogus (or at least Brown's attempts yielded no results).

Still, every time new reports begin to circulate, we cringe with the knowledge that it's entirely possible Rihanna might one day decide to give Chris another shot.

If 2018 has taught us anything, it's that nightmares come true every day.

Rihanna: Siding with Chris Brown in Child Support Battle?!

Chris Brown is getting dragged to court by his ex because he's a deadbeat dad, to absolutely no one's surprise.

While Nia Guzman demands that he pay his fair share to support his daughter, Royalty, a shocking report claims that Chris has a surprising person in his corner.

Rihanna is allegedly heartbroken that Chris is getting dragged back into court.

Chris Brown Points

Nia Guzman says that Chris owes her a lot of child support money for their little girl, Royalty. Chris strenuously objects.

An alleged inside source close to Rihanna tells HollywoodLife that Rihanna feels sorry for Chris Brown, if you can imagine.

"Rihanna’s heart goes out to Chris as he deals with his baby mama drama," the source claims.

Apparently, she not only feels compassion for his plight -- but confidence that he's being a good dad.

To hear this insider tell it: "She has no doubts that Chris loves and supports his daughter."

Loving and supporting someone is, for the record, not the same thing as meeting your court-ordered child support payments.

Rihanna at Crop Over

According to this report, Rihanna's takeaway from their relationship is basically that Chris Brown is a family man who always does right by his loved ones.

"And Rihanna also knows from their time together that being a father was something he’s always wanted," the insider declares.

Wanting something really bad always means that you're responsible with it, right? Like teens and new cars, or little kids and puppies, or Chris Brown and women.

"And although she’s not involved in his life anymore," the source claims. "From her perspective he’s been super devoted to his daughter Royalty."

If she's not in his life anymore ... what possible perspective could she have? Unless she reads a lot of wholesome Chris Brown fanfiction.

Rihanna Chills

To be clear, this alleged source isn't going so far as to claim that Rihanna knows the facts of the case or, you know, any salient details.

"Rihanna has no idea what his child support agreement is though," the insider admits.

But apparently that's not important to her, the source says, "and she has no real interest in those details."

"She does however, feel confident that Chris will do the right thing when it comes to supporting his daughter," the insider asserts.

So ... this report is claiming that Riri is Chris' ideal character witness?

Chris Brown Mug Shot (2018)

If Rihanna is really viewing Chris through rose-tinted glasses, Chris' feelings are said to be even stronger.

"Not a day goes by without Chris thinking about Rihanna," an insider tells HollywoodLife. "He still thinks she’s the most beautiful girl in the world and he truly believes that she’s the love of his life."

First of all, he doesn't think that Rihanna's the most beautiful girl in the world. He knows. It's a fact.

"Chris tries to live his life without regrets," the source reports. "But he can’t help wishing things had played out differently between him and Rihanna."

We'll say this much -- there are some men who beat a woman's face until it's almost beyond recognition and don't regret it. But regets don't mean that Chris is a good dude.

Rihanna in Barbados

Rihanna is many things. Savvy, beautiful, talented, gorgeous, funny, stunningly attractive, witty ... the list goes on.

What she is not is a damn fool. A little more compassionate than is good for her? Sure. But she's no fool.

We have an extremely difficult time believing that Rihanna imagines that Chris is some kindhearted family man. She knows better than most that he is not.

But we could absolutely believe that Riri has a friend who is s--tty enough to project their own nostalgia for Chris onto her and also blab about it to a tabloid.

We're not saying that this is what happened, but ... it's certainly more plausible than Rihanna losing her mind.

Chris Brown is a Deadbeat Dad; Literally No One Is Shocked

Back in 2015, the world learned that Chris Brown had a secret daughter named Royalty.

Now, this is wasn't as surprising as when we all learned that Drake had a secret child because unlike Drizzy, Breezy is a known POS and we always expect the absolute worst of him.

Chris Brown with Royalty

There are ways Chris could have surprised us, like say, stepping up and being the kind of father his little girl deserves.

Instead, he decided to play to type by being the absolute worst.

You would think Chris would be getting sick of that routine by now, since it's how he handles every situation, but the guy has his schtick and he sticks to it.

So yes, the bad news is, Chris Brown is a deadbeat dad, just like everyone expected him to be.

The good news is, if his earnings are any indication, Chris Brown's career is very much on the decline.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Brown's baby mama, Nia Guzman, has been getting the shaft from her multi-platinum sperm donor.

She's now asking for $21,000 a month, plus another $250,000 that Brown allegedly owes her for missed payments.

That may sound like an exorbitant amount, but it's important to bear in mind that Guzman is raising this child entirely on her own.

Chris Brown at Premiere

Brown only has supervised visitation rights, and he seems to have no desire to fight for even partial custody.

Nia claims Brown has earned an average of $4,269,067 over the last two years, which can be broken down to just over $350,000 per month.

Obviously, that's an outrageous amount of cash, but it's peanuts compared to what Breezy was earning at the height of his career.

It wasn't all that long ago that Brown was one of the top-earning recording artists in the world.

Chris Brown Sings and Sucks

These days, he probably doesn't even crack the top 100.

To put things in perspective, Justin Bieber earned roughly $85 million last year.

Breezy's counterpart Drake pulled in an estimated $94 million in 2017.

And it's not just singers and rappers who are putting Breezy to shame.

Chris Brown Dances on Stage

Kylie Jenner is about to be a billionaire, and the girl's not even old enough to buy a cocktail yet.

Under normal circumstances, we would never shame someone for their finances like this.

But it's Chris Brown.

He sucks, and he's failing to properly provide for his daughter even though he could easily afford to do so, so it's open season on this doofus.

MTV Video Music Awards: 13 Best Performances of All Time!

The VMAs aren't like other award shows. 

But unlike when someone you met on Tinder tells you they're not like other girls/guys, in this case, the claim is legit.

You never know what might happen at the VMAs.

Kanye might interrupt someone's acceptance speech.

Nicki Minaj might call out Miley Cyrus.

Kanye might interrupt everyone's acceptance speeches.

You really never know.

In fact, the only thing that's certain is: there will be some amazing performances.

Check out the gallery below to relive some of the most unforgettable musical moments from 32 years of the VMAs.

1. Beyonce: "Love on Top," 2011

Beyonce crushed it with her performance of "Love on Top" in 2011. It didn't hurt that she capped things off by confirming rumors that she and Jay Z were expecting their first child.

2. Madonna: "Like a Virgin," 1984

The Material Girl was just exploding onto the scene when the VMAs first started confusing parents in 1984. To give you an idea of how different things were then: Herbie Hancock beat out Michael Jackson as the night's top winner.

3. Britney Spears: "Slave 4 U," 2011

Chris Brown Arrested for Felony Battery (See His Mug Shot!)

Chris Brown put on a concert at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida on Thursday night.

The singer was then put in handcuffs.

Maybe not literally, but the violent artist was taken into custody by police as soon as he walked off the stage yesterday evening.

Chris Brown is Dancing

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office., Brown was arrested on an outstanding out-of-county warrant from last year.

Per local station WPTV, the alleged woman beater was booked on a felony battery charge  from the Hilllsborough County Sheriff's Office, stemming from an incident last spring.

This incident centered on Brown reportedly punching a photographer during a paid club appearance when he was serving as the establishment's DJ.

That does sound like something he would do, doesn't  it?

Brown was released last night on $2,000 bail and wasted little time commenting on the arrest like the jackass that he is.

"What’s NEW????? Show tomorrow!!!!," he wrote, along with a heart emoji.

Chris Brown. Always the victim, right?

Chris Brown Mug Shot (2018)

The R&B artist's next tour date is actually scheduled for July 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

He's been performing the road since early last month and has been keeping a fairly low profile for several weeks now, barely abusing a single woman during this time.

We last heard from him when Brown celebrated his daughter Royalty's fourth birthday with baby mama Nia Guzman.

Over the years, of course, Brown has had a multitude of run-ins with the law, starting with physical assault charges from when he punched Rihanna in the face in 2009.

Repeatedly.

Brown was later charged with felony assault and making criminal threats for this pummeling; he was sentenced to five years of probation and community service.

In 2013, Brown's probation was revoked after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run in Los Angeles.

The charges were later dropped, but he was given 1,000 additional hours of community service.

Still, no jail time. Because he can sing and dance really well!

In 2016, Brown was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon following a nine-hour standoff of sorts at his California mansion. 

A beauty queen claimed the singer brandished a weapon at her inside his home during this incident -- and Brown responded by referring to the police as "idiots" who were part of a "gang."

He's a real pearl of a human being.

Chris Brown in a Baggy Shirt

In 2017, a judge granted ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran a restraining order against the singer for the next five years.

She said in court that Brown texted her violent threats and assaulted her.

"Make sure ya'll don't be listening to all this bullsh-t, man," Brown said in response last year, adding:

"What all them other people on the outside doing, let them do what they doing. I don't know what the f-ck they talking about."

They're talking about you being an awful person, Chris.

At least that's what we hope everyone keeps talking about.

Chris Brown Sued for Alleged Rape at His House

Chris Brown is once again in trouble with the law.

The often-violent singer has been sued by a home who claims she was the victim of a sexual assault at Brown's house, alleging that was forced to perform oral sex on a woman who was menstruating.

She also says a friend of Brown's raped her twice.

Chris Brown in Yellow

The woman, who has hired Glorida Allred as her attorney, has filed these legal documents under the name Jane Doe.

She claims she attended a party at Brown's mansion on February of 2017 at which cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana were readily available.

In official papers obtained by TMZ, the woman explains that an unnamed female friend of the artist's forced her and a few other women into a bedroom.

This friend then blocked the door with a couch. 

The instigator proceeded to force women to hook up with Brown and another man, named Lowell Grissom.

Doe adds that her cell phone was taken away from her upon arrival at the gathering.

Sitting Courtside

The woman details how she attempted to leave the situation, only for Brown's female friend to grab her by the throat and make her give Grissom a blow job.

Doe adds that this same female friend then pushed her down on the bed and "literally sat on [her] face, using her legs to pin [her] down while forcing [her] to perform oral sex on her."

It gets more disgusting from there, allegedly:

Doe says the woman was menstruating.

She says in the lawsuit that she went to the bathroom after this unwanted sex act and saw her face covered in blood.

While she was showering, Grissom came in, shoved her on the bed and raped her.

Chris Brown in a Baggy Shirt

During a news conference on Wednesday, Allred said this was "one of the most horrific sexual assault cases" she has ever seen.

According to the lawsuit, Grissom later held Doe against a washing machine and raped her a second time that evening.

She says she went to a rape treatment center and reported it to police, but the police have said they could not determine whether these sex acts were consensual or not.

As a result, they did not pursue charges.

Attorney Mark Geragos tells TMZ that Allred is demanding $17 million in the lawsuit, which  Geragos says is ridiculous.

He says the allegations are not true and that Brown is innocent.

Chris Brown Points

The singer, of course, managed to avoid jail time even after punching Rihanna in the face many times back in 2009.

He has since been accused of domestic violence and seems to have a serious problem with his temper, as well as with his ego.

But, hey, the guy can dance really well and he makes catchy music, so millions of fans don't apparently care about this other stuff.

Chris Brown Speaks Out on Karrueche Tran Dating Victor Cruz!

Folks, Chris Brown is expressing his feelings on social media again.

Usually that means some death threats are being issued and some serious trash is being talked.

Chris Brown at Premiere

But either Chris has turned over a new leaf or he recently got his hands on some extremely mellow indica, because we're seeing a side of Breezy that we've never seen before.

Whatever the case, hopefully, his long-suffering ex Karrueche Tran can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

Chris and Karrueche broke up way back in 2015, but that hasn't stopped Chris from continuing to interfere in her life.

Actually, the two of them broke up several times, but it was the revelation that Chris had a secret daughter from a previous relationship that finally pushed Karrueche over the edge.

We guess finding out the person you've been dating for years has been living a double-life the whole time is a deal-breaker for some folks.

Karrueche Tran Instagram Image

Weird thing is, on the scale of bad behavior from Chris Brown, that's actually pretty mild.

These days, Karrueche appears to be dating NFL wide receiver Victor Cruz.

The couple went semi-public recently and Chris dealt with the news remarkably well (by Breezy standards, that is).

On an Instagram pic of the couple, Brown commented:

“They look really good together."

Chris Brown Sings and Sucks

That's it. That's all he wrote.

Now, it's possible that that's some sort of coded threat to Cruz, like when a Mafia dude kisses another dude on the lips and it means he's been marked for death.

But in all likelihood, this is just Chris complimenting an ex he's been broken up with for years.

You know, like normal, relatively sane people do.

That doesn't mean Chris is actually normal or relatively sane, however.

No, in fact, it looks like he's just directing his irrational rage at a different former flame these days.

Chris Brown Looks Up

“Chris is furious over the latest Rihanna pregnancy rumors,” a source close to Brown tells Hollywood Life.

“Every time Chris hears about Rihanna possibly being pregnant, he gets really bothered and totally freaks out."

It seems like Chris gets bothered and freaks out pretty much any time anything happens, so we suppose it's not shocking that he flipped when he heard that Rihanna might be pregnant.

It is surprising that he's so mad he can't even focus on his other grudges, though.

"Chris has a lot of love for Rihanna and he always wanted to be the one to have a family with her," the insider claims.

Rihanna at 2018 Grammys

"It makes him emotional to hear that she could be having someone else’s baby."

The source adds:

"Chris has always felt that one day things might work out between them, so if the rumors turn out to be true, he will be heartbroken.” 

Yeah, Chris we're pretty sure that ship has sailed.

It left harbor right around the time you brutally beat Rihanna and she fled the relationship in fear for her life.

"Deal-breaker" is pretty much Chris' middle name.

Kendall Jenner Likely Regrets Chris Brown Alliance Right About Now

In a recent interview, Kendall Jenner expressed regret over that controversial Pepsi commercial from April of last year.

But at least no Pepsi can has ever been accused of beating up its girlfriend.

The same, of course, cannot be said for Chris Brown.

Kendall Jenner in a Video

And this explains why so many Kendall Jenner fans are aghast at the model's decision to make a cameo in Brown's latest music video.

As previously reported, Jenner appears in the video for "Freaky Friday," a collaboration between this violent artist and a rapper named Lil Dicky.

At one point in the footage, Dicky takes the form of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, crooning:

Holy sh-t, I got a vagina, I'm gonna learn. I'm gonna understand the inner workings of a woman!

(This is seriously profound and lyrical stuff, folks.)

Jenner hasn't explained her motivation for this appearance, but Brown pleaded guilty to physically assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

He has also had a tumultuous relationship with his ex Karrueche Tran, who had a restraining order taken out against him in 2017 and who has also accused him of attacking her.

Chris Brown in a Video

Why would Kendall possibly associate herself with the singer?

We have no idea.

And we aren't the only ones demanding an answer while questioning Jenner's decision-making process here.

“Please tell me you’re not supporting chris brown,” one Twitter user wrote in response to the 22-year-old's Tweet about her cameo, while another fan added simply:

“Girl please don’t support an abuser.”

why kj?

Along with Jenner, meanwhile, Ed Sheeran also appears in this same music video.

He's one of the most successful solo artists out there and most definitely did not need any sort of professional bump from Brown.

So... what the heck were you thinking, Ed?!?

"@edsheeran is on a song with Chris Brown. And in my opinion that currently makes him a dick,” one Internet user wrote.

And another chimed in as follows: “I will not be getting involved with that song. I thought he had better judgement.”

Ed Sheeran in a Video

Followers really don't seem sure how to respond to Sheeran's cameo.

This is someone whose biggest controversy to date was... we don't even know. Briefly guest-starring on Game of Thrones last season, we guess?

"I’m kinda upset Ed Sheeran’s on a Chris Brown song cause I hate supporting that a–hole abuser but I love supporting Ed," Tweeted a confused fan.

ed disgust

Last week, Brown's beating of Rihanna returned to the news after Snapchat actually posted an advertisement that mocked his assault conviction.

The message asked users whether they’d rather “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.”

Really, this is a thing that happened.

A spokesperson for the social media app apologized in a statement shortly after the ad went viral, saying the “advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines."

Rihanna also said something directly to the company at the time:

“I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!

"You let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away."

In conclusion: Chris Brown sucks and Kendall Jenner has a lot of explaining to do.

Kendall Jenner Is Excited About Her Vagina in NSFW Music Video

If you're not familiar with the rapper Lil Dicky, well, we're sorry to be the ones to tell you, but you've been wasting your life.

The good news is, it's not too late for you to familiarize yourself with the artist who's alternately known as Slim Boner, the Human Bitcoin, and Mr. Leftward-Sloping Penis.

Dicky's back catalog is well worth your time, but there's no better place to start than with his newest music video, a collaboration with Chris Brown that dropped earlier this week.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, Hey, I clicked on an article about Kendall Jenner's vagina! What's all this talk about phallic rappers and heavily-tattooed R&B dudes?

Well, you see - Breezy isn't the only celeb to make a cameo in Young Dick's latest opus.

The song has something of a high-concept premise - Dicky and Chris swap bodies (hence the title, "Freaky Friday").

The emcees enjoy certain aspects of one another's lives, but for obvious reasons, Brown is eager to get back to his life of groupies and public adulation.

And so, a second switch takes place.

We won't get into all the details (you really have to watch this video), but complications lead to Dicky inhabiting Kendall Jenner's physical form.

The rapper remains as genital-obsessed as ever, but now he has something new to explore.

"Holy sh-t, I got a vagina, I'm gonna learn," an excited Dickie-as-Kendall croons.

"I'm gonna understand the inner workings of a woman!"

Needless to say, this isn't your typical hip hop video.

Do yourself a favor and check out the full clip below:

Chris Brown Just Got Owned by Vanessa Carlton

Chris Brown paid tribute to the opposite sex last Thursday on International Women's Day.

In what manner?

As difficult as it was for the violent singer, he actually refrained from bludgeoning the face of any female, which is significant progress for someone who ought to be in jail for what he did to Rihanna.

Chris Brown in a Baggy Shirt

We're just kidding.

(Well, we're serious: Brown did not beat any women up last week, as far as we know.)

In actuality, Brown celebrated the aforementioned occasion by posting a video set to Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles," a classic and uplifting pop track which opens as follows:

Making my way downtown walking fast/Faces pass and I'm home bound/Staring blankly ahead just making my way/Making a way through the crowd...

But while anyone familiar with this track is likely nodding his or her head to the beat right about now, a certain someone out there was doing the exact opposite upon learning Brown shared the snippet:

Vanessa Carlton herself.

Vanessa Carlton Sings

She responded to this misguided use of the track by shaking her head and writing in response:

“Today Chris Brown posted my video. I am now being repeatedly tagged to his account. Being that today is International Women’s Day I feel compelled to draw a line.

"I support survivors not perpetrators of domestic violence. I do not want to be associated with an artist that has assaulted women on a day like today.

"Thank you. #internationalwomensday.”

Carlton, of course, is referring to Brown’s highly publicized assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, as well as further allegations of violence that have recurred throughout his career.

Chris Brown Dances on Stage

The artist is a ticking time bomb of rage who has shown no remorse for his actions and has repeatedly proven himself to be an angry abuser.

As a result, we figured Brown would fly off the proverbial handle upon being scolded by Carlton.

But he instead replied in relatively tame and fair fashion, simply tagging Carlton in a post that reads:

"I posted a song that was and still is a great song and the artist felt she was doing her duty as a WOMAN to continue to spread this kind of hatred today.

"I won’t keep it up long. I just hope she knows she is loved and her song is great."

Chris Brown Soaks in Applause

Passive aggressive and with a clear tinge of disdain, but Chris Brown is always graded on a scale.

If he didn't bloody her lip, we consider it an impressive response on his part.

Brown, meanwhile, also proved himself to be a somewhat loving father over the weekend, sharing a picture of his young daughter Royalty and including the following caption:

Flyest 3year old On EARTH.

The image has since been Liked over 1.5 million times.

She's Royalty

For whatever reason, Brown still has a strong and passionate fan base.

It's perhaps the most perplexing and annoying development in all of Hollywood because, in case we didn't make it clear above, the guy is an unabashed woman beater.

But he does have a cute daughter.

It's not her fault that her dad sucks.

For Royalty's sake, we hope she never has to learn what kind of man planted his seed in her mother. We hope she grows up blissfully ignorant.

Chris Brown on Wendy Williams’ Illness: You Deserve It! Karma, B-tch!

When controversial talk show host Wendy Williams announced her illness and leave of absence, a number of people couldn't help but take a little satisfaction.

That might be unfair -- even though Wendy Williams makes her living by gleefully relishing in the misfortunes of others. And she's made a number of enemies along the way.

But ... does Chris Brown, of all people, have any room to talk?

Wendy Williams Goes Down

It was with a heavy heart (given the circumstances, we'll withhold jokes about Wendy Williams not having a heart) that Wendy Williams broke the news to her fans.

"My doctor has prescribed -- are you ready? -- three weeks of vacation."

Plenty of folks would love a three-week break from work, but when a doctor is ordering that, you know that it's serious.

She makes a joke about coming back after only two weeks because, thanks to her humble origins, she's concerned over who will pay her bills.

(Wendy Williams' net worth is estimated to be about $60 million. We sincerely hope that she'll be able to use those meager funds to keep the lights on for a few weeks)

Wendy Williams Acts Surprised

The reason for this doctor-instructed break from making cruel jabs at suffering celebrities and concocting wild theories about the motives behind new romances and breakups?

She suffers from both Graves Disease and hyperthyroidism. (Graves Disease being the most frequent cause for hyperthyroidism)

Symptoms can include nervousness, irritability, increased perspiration, a racing heartrate, hand tremors, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, thinning of the skin, fine brittle hair, and muscular weakness.

Wendy has experienced pressure behind her eyes and irritability along with trouble sleeping. Naturally, she may not have divulged all of her symptoms.

Some can't help but wonder if this condition played a roll in her scary collapse on live television.

Obviously, we wish Wendy Williams the best.

Chris Brown at Premiere

As inexcusable as some of Wendy's statements have been -- she's declared that she's sick of the #MeToo movement, among many other things -- there are much worse celebrities out there.

Speaking of whom ... Chris Brown has some thoughts on Wendy Williams' health condition, according to HollywoodLife's source.

"Chris feels bad Wendy is suffering an illness, but he can’t help but think bad karma is to blame for her poor health."

Of all of the people in this world to believe that a person's bad actions lead to cosmic consequences ... you'd think that Chris Brown would not be among them.

You know, because of the very famous domestic violence thing. Upon Rihanna. Upon Kerrueche Tran. And, let's face it, many believe that Chris Brown may have a long list of victims.

Yet he reportedly believes that Wendy has earned this illness flair-up by, get this, judging him.

"Chris has been the target of Wendy’s criticism and judgment many times over the years so he has a hard time feeling too bad that she will be off the air for a few weeks."

Chris Brown Sings and Sucks

"Chris is a big believer in the energy in the universe and he thinks cosmic karma may be partly to blame for Wendy’s problems."

Many people have beliefs like that. We'd imagine that most of them might mold their actions accordingly.

"Chris feels that it’s because Wendy spends so much time dissing him, and others, that she has gotten so sick."

Victim complex much?

"Chris thinks that when she recovers, Wendy will think twice before she continues to bully people on her TV show."

That's her whole brand, though.

"Chris is hoping her struggles with her health will make her a nicer person on the other side."

Wendy Williams Looks On

Honestly? The idea of Chris Brown so totally lacking moral clarity and self-awareness shouldn't surprise me, but it's kind of blowing my mind right now.

If he believes that people who say unkind things on television deserve illness, what does he think that Wendy Williams would deserve if she, to picka  random example, made a habit of beating the crap out of young women she claimed to love?

We joke, but it may be that he truly doesn't believe that he's done anything "that bad." That's a standard attitude for domestic abusers and other monsters.

Wendy Williams is not kind, but she's not a monster.

She doesn't deserve her illness. Criticism, sure. Not a chronic ailment.

And Chris Brown, who has never gotten what he deserves in his life, has no high ground against Wendy Williams or anyone else.

Chris Brown Posts Birthday Shout-Out to Rihanna, Gets Roasted By Fans

Thankfully, Chris Brown hasn't been in the news much lately.

Generally when you see Breezy's name in a headline, it's a sure sign that you're face will soon be firmly planted in your palm.

And we're sad to say this latest case is no exception.

Chris Brown at Premiere

Today, Rihanna celebrates her 30th birthday, an occasion that she'll probably mark by smoking 31 blunts.

(The last one is because she lost count.)

Milestone birthdays can be times of poignant reflection, and obviously RiRi has a whole hell of a lot to be proud o.

But like most of us, there are some aspect of her past that she likely wishes would remain in the past.

And today, one of the ghosts of her early twenties swooped in to remind the Barbadian queen of a time she'd probably prefer to forget.

The photo above was posted on Instagram by Brown with a caption reading simply, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY @badgalriri."

Needless to say, some fans weren't thrilled to see the man who brutally assaulted Rihanna attempting to steal her birthday shine.

"This isn't cute," wrote one follower. "He put his hands on her. Grow up. Move on. Respect."

"DELETE THIS!" another commented.

"I wouldn’t like to have my abuser show affection to me after getting my head bashed into the floor," a third remarked.

The consensus seemed to be that Chris remains a dumbass and should probably be considered as a first-ballot inductee into the Dumbass Hall of Fame.

But believe it or not, for reasons that defy explanation and make us seriously consider taking up residence in the deep woods, several miles from the nearest router, there are still folks out there who want Chris and Rihanna to get back together.

"Can y’all get married now like damn it’s long overdue!" wrote one eager fan.

"Aww him and Rihanna would have a cute baby," observed one clueless user.

Yes, in just 9 short years, many seem to have forgotten just how brutal Chris' attack truly was.

If you still had any hope left for humanity, it might be time to abandon it.

On the bright side, Chris doesn't appear to have dated anyone seriously since he broke up with Karrueche Tran for the last time in 2016, so maybe he's finally realized that he should be removed from the gene pool.

Rihanna: Boyfriend Hassan Jameel Warning Chris Brown to Stay Away?!

Rihanna is ... well, there's no real way to communicate with mere words how amazing Rihanna is.

She's beautiful, intelligent, talented, and just so many good things. There aren't enough hours in the day to sit down and count all of her virtues.

She's just the best, OK?

And if you're a human being who walks this earth, then you surely know that.

It just makes sense that since Rihanna is such a treasure to us all, she's even more special to the men she dates -- and since last year, she's been dating billionaire Hassan Jameel.

Hassan is the deputy president and vice chairman of his family's company, which owns the rights to sell Toyota cars in Saudi Arabia.

We don't know much more about him, since he and Rihanna have been keeping their relationship very private.

But we do know that they've been dating for close to a year now, and that they definitely seem serious about each other.

So that's nice, right? It's good to see Rihanna with someone who isn't an aggressive, violent, hateful, scary douchebag.

And speaking of Chris Brown ...

It seems like while Chris isn't exactly an issue in Rihanna and Hassan's relationship, Hassan is concerned about him.

A source tells Hollywood Life that "He is uncomfortable with her ex Chris lurking in her past."

Gee, wonder why?

"Hassan doesn't trust Chris," the source adds, "and he feels like he is unpredictable when it comes to Rihanna."

"He feels like Chris is capable of trying anything to win her back and that has him feeling uneasy. Hassan tries not to worry about Chris, but knowing he may still love Rihanna makes him feel a bit tense."

His concerns may be valid -- another source claims that even after all this time and even though Rihanna has clearly moved on, Chris is still hung up on her.

"Chris thinks Hassan is not good enough for Rihanna -- but then, nobody would be good enough for her in his eyes," this insider states.

He's including himself in that, right? He can't think that he's good enough for her. Right?!

"He thinks there's no way Rihanna would marry this dude, which is kinda funny really as he doesn't know Hassan at all," the source continues.

"Chris just can't help it though, even after all these years, and all the water that's passed under the bridge, he still loves Rihanna to pieces and he still thinks of her as being his girl."

"It's totally crazy, but Chris still holds out this belief that one day, somehow, he and Rihanna will get back together and live happily after," the insider concludes.

No wonder Hassan has some concerns.

Especially when Chris has referred to himself as a stalker in the past, and has made statements like "If I love you, bitch, ain't nobody gonna have you, I'm gonna make you miserable."

We'd say we don't have the best feeling about this, but we never have good feelings when it comes to Chris Brown.

Amber Rose Denies Chris Brown Hookup

Chris Brown and Teyana Taylor are just friends. We all know being friends can lead to being friends with benefits, but in this case we think they are just friends.

That's the word on the street at least, despite celebrity gossip sites' reports of Teyana (the Rihanna look-alike) being Chris Brown’s "date" to a weekend party.

Reports also suggested that he was "disrespecting" his date by hooking up with Amber Rose, creating a love triangle and potentially enraging Kanye West.

But did Amber Rose and Chris Brown really hook up?

Teyana Taylor posted this picture of them on her Twitter page, with the description that they were "cupcakin' it all night, LOL." Whatever that means.

Doesn't sound like the stuff of a jealous girlfriend, right? Moreover, a quite attributed to Amber Rose regarding Brown has surfaced online. She says:

“I know Chris, cause I did the Ludacris and Chris Brown video." 

"However, there is nothing romantic between the two of us, whatsoever, and I was definitely not kissing him that night. This is total fabrication by the media."

"But I don’t let that kind of stuff bother me ... I just laugh it off.”

That's probably a good thing. Especially if you are Kanye West's computer. Man, that sucker would have gotten annihilated harder than Rihanna if Brown hit that.

Chris Brown hooks up with Kanye’s ex Amber Rose

Chris Brown and Kanye West's ex Amber Rose were reportedly all over each other at Diddy and Ashton Kutcher's July 4th bash in Beverly Hills. Which wouldn't have been so bad if Chris Brown didn't bring 18-year-old Teyana Taylor... ...read full story


Rumor: Chris Brown Hooks Up with Amber Rose

Chris Brown likely scared off some girls by beating Rihanna to a pulp.

Amber Rose apparently isn't one of them.

Brown and Kanye West's ex reportedly locked lips at the July 4 White Party thrown by Sean (Diddy) Combs and Ashton Kutcher in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The embattled singer arrived at the party with singer Teyana Taylor, his Rihanna look-alike pal, but is said to have hooked up quickly with Amber Rose.

"Diddy announced the deejay would do a tribute to Michael Jackson," said a guest to the New York Daily News. "Chris Brown did an amazing impression of Michael Jackson's moonwalk. It wasn't long after that before he was dancing with Amber."

Later, the pair nestled on a couch in the back yard.

"They were holding hands and making out in the shadows," said a witness. "[Amber Rose] had her hand on his leg." Wow, get a room, you two!

Teyana Taylor is said to have been irked by the amount of time Brown spent with Rose, but still accompanied him to an after-party at the club Guys.

There, Brown again got upclose and personal with Rose again, kissing her on the dance floor in front of Teyana. But he and Amber left separately.

Some wondered whether Chris Brown's blatant display with Amber Rose was a defiant message both to Rihanna and Kanye West. Rihanna dumped Brown, who last month pleaded guilty to assaulting her at what was to be his preliminary hearing.

West, who has said he was "devastated" by Brown's attack on a woman who was like "my little sister," has run hot and cold on Rose lately. Although he reportedly broke up with her last month, they were back together at the BET Awards.
