♦ Whitney Houston Gives Rihanna Advice…
Whitney Houston has urged Rihanna not to take Chris Brown back.
The legendary singer reportedly warned Rihanna to cut all ties with Chris after the ‘Run It’ star was arrested for allegedly beating her up.
Whitney – who had a violent relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown – is believed to have spoken to Rihanna, telling her: “Don’t make the same mistakes I did.”
A source told the National Enquirer magazine: “When Whitney heard what had happened to Rihanna, she was close to tears. Right then she knew she had to contact her and urge her to get out of the relationship while she can. She made it clear that Rihanna should dump Chris.
“Whitney told her, ‘Whenever you let your heart rule your head, you are bound to run into trouble.”
Despite Whitney’s advice, 21-year-old Rihanna has reportedly forgiven Chris and the pair have been in constant contact via phone calls and text messages.
♦ T.I. Reached Out To Rihanna…
Rapper T.I. is close friends with Rihanna and Chris Brown — and revealed to “Extra” that he wants to see the couple rise above their controversy — and get back to the top of their game.
“I’ve been blessed and fortunate enough to spend time around them and Rihanna is outstanding. She’s the sweetest girl…Chris, he’s a great guy…I can’t speak on the event that took place. I don’t know the details…It’s not my business, but I know through all adversity comes strength and everyone goes through things for a reason. I want to see them both rise above it, move beyond it and get back to being great.”
T.I. — real name Clifford Harris — also admitted that he’s reached out to Rihanna, who he collaborated with on the hit song, “Live Your Life.” He says he “made an attempt to contact Rihanna, but understandably, she’s not able to reached.”
