Kanye West is worried that Rihanna will get back with her former boyfriend Chris Brown and has advised her not to be a “fool” by taking such a decision, Hollywood Life reported Monday, citing sources. The two former lovers are reportedly putting aside their differences and trying to rekindle their romance, which ended in 2013.
“Kanye would never tell anyone not to follow their heart unless he really felt a compelling reason to do so. And that was the case with Rihanna,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He knows how vulnerable she can be, especially toward Chris, and he told her she’d be a ‘fool’ if she got back with him."
The source reportedly said that West had a brief talk with Rihanna about Brown during the FYF Fest at the Los Angeles Sports Arena & Exposition Park on Saturday. He reportedly told the 27-year-old singer that she deserves a man who would love her like he loves his wife Kim Kardashian.
“He wasn’t bashing Chris -- he was just trying to convince Rihanna not to go backwards. He told her life’s always moving forward and to learn from the past but no go back there,” the source reportedly said.
According to latest reports, Rihanna is getting closer to Brown because of his daughter Royalty. The “Unfaithful” singer believes that the father-daughter bond brings out Brown’s sensitive side, media reports said, citing sources. Rihanna also has been Brown’s confidant during his fight with Royalty’s mother, Nia Guzman, over the custody of the 1-year-old.
“Rihanna wants to see Chris and Royalty together. She’s heard all about how much he loves his daughter and she wants to witness that,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “That’s a side of Chris she hasn’t really seen and man, she wants to. To her, there’s nothing sexier or more attractive than a man who adores his daughter.”
Meanwhile, reports surfaced that Brown was also in touch with his former girlfriend Karrueche Tran amid reconciliation rumors with Rihanna.
Hollywood Life reported Monday that the “Loyal” singer gifted Tran a pair of $2,000 Louboutin shoes.
“Even though Chris has been talking to Rihanna and hooking up with random girls on the road, he’s still buying Karrueche expensive gifts,” another source told Hollywood Life. “It’s mainly shoes. He just bought and sent her a $2,000 pair of Louboutin boots with a note saying they reminded him of her and that he thought she would look great wearing them.”
Tran, who has been upset since Brown started reuniting with Rihanna, was reportedly spotted wearing the shoes on Friday.
“Karrueche doesn’t know what Chris’ game is,” the source reportedly said. “She thinks he’s trying to make up for talking to Rihanna again. But, either way, she isn’t coming back to him any time soon.”
