Chris Brown and Rihanna
The controversy in Rihanna and Chris Brown's relationship did not start until after he attacked her in 2009. Shortly after the assault the couple got back together and Rihanna was slammed for setting a bad example for young girls by going back to a man who beat her.

Chris Brown and Rihanna are not even officially back together, but rumors are flying, and Jay-Z is none too pleased.

A source told Radar Online today that Jay-Z, who recently had a baby girl with Beyoncé, is deeply disappointed in Rihanna's decision to return to the man who beat her three years ago, punching her repeatedly on the arm and in the face, to the point of visibly bruising her face.

Jay was absolutely disgusted by what Chris did to Rihanna, the source told Radar Online. Last year at the VMAs, Jay-Z refused to clap for Chris Brown after his performance. Media reports claimed that Rihanna found solace in Jay-Z after the incident, but obviously she's had a change of heart, recording a song with Brown, cuddling with him at her Valentine's Day party, and reportedly secretly dating Brown for nearly a year, according to Us Weekly.

Chris is absolutely dead to Jay, the source continued. He wants nothing to do with him ever. Now that Rihanna is hooking up with Chris and recording songs with him, Jay is deeply disappointed in her actions. He can't fathom why Rihanna is doing the things she is doing. He understands the need for forgiveness, but he is adamant that Rihanna shouldn't forget what Chris did to her. Jay wonders what kind of message this is sending to Rihanna's young female fans.

As for Rihanna? She knows that Jay-Z disapproves, but it's not enough to keep them apart: Rihanna knows how Jay feels about Chris, but she doesn't care, she is going to do what she wants.

The source also claims that the birth of Jay-Z's child, Blue Ivy Carter, with wife Beyoncé has only strengthened his resolve to never having anything to do with Chris Brown.
