Rihanna and her on-and-off boyfriend Chris Brown have reportedly ‘barely spoken’ due to her relationship with Drake.
The Stay songstress confirmed last month that she is back with her abusive ex Chris, who was charged with assault on her in 2009.
The pair were effusive with one another at the Grammy Awards on February 10, but apparently their romance has quickly turned sour.
It is said that the couple refused to acknowledge each other at the Playhouse Nightclub in Los Angeles last week.
Last year Chris was involved in a bar brawl with Drake in a New York City nightspot and the fight is said to have ensued when Drake passed a taunting message about Rihanna to the crooner.
Speculation is rife that Chris is jealous over Rihanna’s current bond with the hip-hop musician.
‘Chris and Rihanna had a big bust-up at the Grammys over Drake,’ a source told British newspaper The Sun.
‘She was messaging him [via text] and Chris saw and it didn’t go down well.’
Although Rihanna and Chris are not on speaking terms, it is assumed that they will quickly patch things up.
‘Since that night they have barely spoken and have been doing their own things,’ the insider detailed.
‘For now they have split up but they will probably make up at some point.’
Meanwhile, Chris has answered court papers filed against him by French male model Romain Julien, who is suing both him and Drake over their infamous fight.
According to the New York Post, in answer to the allegations against them “Drake says Brown and the club’s owners bear responsibility if the model was injured, while Brown fired back, blaming Drake.”
