Rihanna's family, friends and fans have already warned her against dating her former (and possibly current) boyfriend Chris Brown. Now the Barbadian singer's religious mentor is stepping into the fray, telling The Sun that she's not setting a good example for her young female fans. The last time the two R&B stars became romantically involved the affair ended when Brown was arrested for punching RiRi repeatedly with one hand while driving his car with the other.
Barbados pastor Bishop Vibert Lowe, a family friend of Rihanna's says that her fans back home are praying for her and that Barbadians worry she parties way too hard. Before RiRi left the island for American pop stardom she listened to Lowe's sermon's every Sunday.
A lot of people have been praying for her and hoping that she will drop these bad habits, the clergyman said. We feel it's wrong for her to behave like this. As a young lady she's not setting a good example.
He added, Young people look to her as a mentor, they regard her as an idol and copy her lifestyle. There are people on the island who think she parties way too hard.
Specifically addressing her torrid relationship with singer-rapper-dancer Chris Brown, Lowe stated, After all he did, I'd tell her to steer clear of him. He's not the correct influence on her life.
Rihanna has been dropping hints that she and Brown are back together on Twitter, and was even seen leaving his dressing room at the Grammys sporting a coy smile and spending several hours along with her ex. Star Magazine claims that the two are planing a secret wedding to take place soon.
On Mon. March 12, she posted several messages from her Twitter account, hinting that she and Brown are seeing each other with the hashtag #bittersweet, suggesting that she may be struggling with the relationship herself.
See what I want so much, should never hurt this bad! she tweeted on Mon. night, EST.
