(AllHipHop News) Chris Brown felt like Jesus on Monday and went ghost from Instagram on Tuesday. January 29th may be a day that lives in digital infamy for the 2 million+ followers of Brown’s Instagram profile. Pointing to the intrusive nature of social media and an insular approach to new recordings, the rumor mill magnet posted this picture before making his profile private:
In a sitcom-ish twist of fate, just as Chris shields the world from his, Rhianna sheds new light on their private life in an upcoming cover story for Rolling Stone. In the article (entitled “Crazy In love) Brown’s -off-and-on-and-something love interest tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells her reconciliation with her once abusive ex-boyfriend stemmed on an unshakable desire for personal happiness:
“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.”
Rhianna also reveals that love is not the only factor that made her comfortable with making this reunion possible.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of fucking up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
She also chalks people’s fears of a return of the past to misconceptions and the lovebirds no longer have the arguments which enraged Chris Brown into striking her back in 2009. “We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that,” she says in the cover story. Those “types of arguments” she refers to could be types involving 3 page text messages of infidelity Rhianna attributed to police as the cause for Brown’s physical tirade. No word on if they have disucssed Rhianna’s recently reported showdown with Brown’s ex, Karrueche.
The issue hits stands tomorrow (Jan 31st). No one needs this weekend more than Chris Brown.
