Former lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown are in the headlines for very different reasons.
While sources reveal the Barbadian singer is now “officially” dating Drake, her ex has been arrested for assault with a dangerous weapon.
The RnB star was bust after a tense five-hour stand-off with cops at his Los Angeles home.
Brown allegedly became kwaad and pointed a gun at former beauty queen and model Baylee Curran after she touched his friend’s diamond necklace.
The friend was reportedly showcasing jewellery at Brown’s home, and Curran said she was admiring the bling, when he swore and told her to back off.
The former Miss California told the Los Angeles Times: “That’s when Chris pulled his gun and told me to ‘Get out’. ‘I’m sick of you girls, get the F out!’”
Brown was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after the police searched his house and was released Tuesday night after paying $250 000 in bail.
Brown was convicted in 2009 for assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
Yesterday, a close friend of Riri and Drake confirmed the two were officially dating.
“No one really knows how long they have been ‘official’, they just decided to let it become a thing instead of hiding it from everyone. They’re happy,” the insider explains.
The revelation comes after Drake and Riri’s public show of affection at the MTV VMA awards show Sunday.
