The former best pals - who fell out last October because of the "Stay" singer's reconciliation with Chris Brown, who is still on probation for beating her in 2009 - are still not speaking to each other and Katy reportedly made a special request to be seated no where near the couple at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

A source told USMagazine.com, "They aren't tight anymore because Katy doesn't approve of Rihanna dating Chris Brown."

But friends close to Rihanna, 24, insist she has no problem with Katy, 28, but doesn't care what anyone thinks about her relationship because she is happy. "Rihanna doesn't have a problem with anyone and could give a f**k about what anybody thinks about her relationship. She was focused on her and Chris and enjoying her night," a source said.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Dating, Rumors,

Chris Brown and Rihanna at the GrammysRihanna doesn't care what people think of her relationship with Chris Brown.

The "We Found Love" singer recently rekindled her romance with the "Don't Wake Me Up" hitmaker, even though he is still on probation for beating her up in 2009, and Rihanna plans to ignore those who disapprove. "Rihanna doesn't care what nobody says or the whispers from people . She's just like, 'F**k it babe, just be you and I'll be me and together we're us.' People are always trying to judge because she is with Chris but like she said, it ain't nobody's business," a source said.

Rihanna, 24, recently explained that although she knew people wouldn't approve of her decision, she is happier than ever with 23-year-old Chris: "I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you've got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn't bury the way I felt. I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."

Chris Brown’s Ex Won’t Confront Rihanna

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Break-ups,

Chris Brown and Rihanna last monthChris Brown's ex-girlfriend thinks it would be "too much" to discuss her love triangle face-to-face with Rihanna.

The "Turn Up The Music" singer's former flame Karrueche Tran - who he has recently been spotted hanging out with again despite rekindling his on-again/off-again romance with the 24-year-old "Stay" singer - has admitted she would only sit down to discuss their mutual feelings from Chris if she was forced to.

Asked what she would say if she was given the chance to talk to both the 23-year-old R&B singer and Rihanna, the 24-year-old model told Vibe magazine, "For everybody, emotionally, that would just be way too much. I'm a very mature person so if the time ever did come where we would need to sit down and talk, I'd do it. I'm a mature person. I can work it out but that would be a lot. [Pause] Yeah, it would be a lot."

Karrueche's comments come just days after she was spotted partying in the same nightclub in Los Angeles as her love rival on Sunday. Chris was not present at the venue, but his relationship with his model-ex has attracted fresh speculation recently after she joined him at his clothing line launch in Long Beach on Saturday while Rihanna was enjoying a short trip to Ireland.

While Chris isn't in Ireland with Rihanna, he spent New Year's Day in bed with her. The "Turn Up The Music" singer posted a picture of himself on Instagram lying in bed under a black and white duvet shortly. Just one hour earlier, Rihanna posted a picture under the same blanket with the caption, "Good morning! Still haven't slept lol #hello2013."

The couple's romantic morning came after they were paid a reported $10 million to perform at an intimate New Year's Eve gig for guests at an African billionaire's private party in the Ivory Coast. After the gig on Monday, they jumped on a waiting jet to fly to the Caribbean island of St. Barts so they could celebrate in private.

RihannaRihanna has forgiven Chris Brown for enjoying a night out in Paris with his ex-girlfriend.

The "Diamonds" singer - who recently rekindled her on-again/off-again romance with the 23-year-old R&B star despite him still being on supervised probation for beating her in 2009 - was said to be livid that he was spotted out on the town with his model ex Karrueche Tran in the French capital on Friday night after his concert. "She can't get it into her head that Chris will never change. She's given him so many chances since he beat her up in 2009 and he still keeps hurting her by partying with girls. Letting Karrueche meet him is yet another blow for Rihanna that will further disgust her fans. They are already raging that she is back with him," a source said.

RihannaRihanna got a tattoo in support of Chris Brown. The "Diamonds" singer has allegedly had the word "Breezy" inked on her skin to honor her on-off musician boyfriend, who famously calls his army of fans Team Breezy.

"She got it to symbolize her commitment to him. Now the world knows they're back together, they're determined to make it work," a source said.

The couple - who split in 2009 after Chris violently assaulted Rihanna - have a notoriously fiery relationship, but are thought to have rekindled their passion after Chris dumped model Karrueche Tran. They have since been inseparable, with Rihanna even flying out to Germany to spend time on tour with him, and the pair regularly post intimate snapshots of each other on Twitter.

Rihanna, 24, has 20 known tattoos on her body and believes they all hold a special spiritual meaning. The Bajan beauty's last inking was of the Egyptian goddess Isis, renowned as the ideal mother and wife, and was done in tribute to her late grandmother Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite. "My tattoos are all spiritual and show how I feel about religion. I have a falcon which is an Egyptian falcon and is supposed to stand for God. [I'm] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair," she said in the past.
