Talk about D-R-A-M-A!
MTV execs are anxious for Rihanna, Chris Brown and Drake to attend the live Video Music Awards in LA on September 6.
A source tells Us Weekly the network set its sights on the trio after Brown, 23, and Drake, 25, brawled over Rihanna, 24, in NYC June 14. “Notice Drake and Chris are both up for Best Male Video,” adds the source. (Don’t forget that Rihanna appears in Drake’s nominated “Take Care” video.)
“They are hoping a fight breaks out,” the source says. “Ratings galore!”
The June 14 fight occurred between Brown and Drake’s entourages at the club W.i.P, with five people sustaining minor injuries. “It was lot of pushing and shoving,” an observer told Us. “People were picking up ice buckets in case they had to throw it. They tore the club apart. It was bad. People went to the hospital!”
On Sunday, Rihanna opened up about her relationship with Chris Brown in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter. The “We Found Love” singer said she never stopped caring for Brown — even after he was arrested for physically assaulting her in February 2009. “We love each other and we probably always will, and that’s not anything that we’re going to try to change,” Rihanna told Oprah.
“I think he was the love of my life,” Rihanna added. “He was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way. I truly love him. The main thing for me is he’s at peace. I’m not at peace if he’s not happy or he’s still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace.”
Chris Brown and Rihanna need to just go ahead and perform Birthday Cake to shut it down!
