Canadian singer Keisha Chante has been caught in the centre of allegations surrounding reports of a woman igniting the incident between Chris Brown and Rihanna.
According to TMZ, a sexy text message was reportedly sent to Brown from a female on the night of the incident. When speculation began on the woman’s identity, rumours of Chante’s involvement surfaced.
Chante’s manager, Mona Scott denied the rumor to US Weekly.
“This is another unsubstantiated, untrue report; she was nowhere near the incident in any way,” said Scott. “She was nowhere near Rihanna or Chris Brown. She had nothing to do with any of that.”
It’s been reported that Brown and Rihanna’s alleged fight began after Rihanna saw the message.
Chante’s manager says that Chante has been “getting frantic” after receiving phone calls from people about the reported rumours. She says that Chante barely knows Brown and rumours involving the two have been floating around for a while.
“She’s not even dating Chris! I think they met a few years back, probably three or four years ago in Canada,” her manager said. “But that’s it. It’s crazy – there’s been a continuous kind of reporting of them linked together, and this has been the worst of it all. But, no – she had absolutely nothing to do with them or any of that.”
Aside from Chante, rumours of Leona Lewis allegedly flirting with Brown have also emerged.
The British singer attended the same pre-Grammy party that Brown and Rihanna attended just hours before their alleged incident.
“Leona was at the pre-Grammy party with her family and boyfriend and had nothing whatsoever to do with any argument that may have ensued between Chris and Rihanna. Any allegations that the pair had flirted are completely false,” Lewis’ spokesperson said in a statement.
While it appears that just about everyone has something to say about their dispute, reps for Brown and Rihanna have yet to comment.
