Rihanna finally speaks out in this month’s issue of Elle Magazine regarding her relationships with Chris Brown and Jay Z. The “Good Girl Gone Bad” singer who appears on the cover of Elle sporting a smirk in Donna Karan original has been mum for sometime now about her rumored relationships with the R&B phenom and Hip Hop mogul. Rihanna says “We’ve always been friends, but we’re very close now” referring to her rumored romance with R&B singer Chris Brown. This seems to be a fact as the two have been spotted together at a number of Kanye West’s Glow In the Dark Tour dates where Rihanna is part of the line up including a stop in St. Petersburg, Florida this week. The couple was also spotted leaving Brown’s 19th birthday party this week where a photographer was allegedly roughed up by Brown’s bodyguards for snapping a photo of the couple. Brown, who was recently reported on Singersroom, covers Ebony this month; calls Rihanna a friend but also states “I try to stay away from even having a girl. I go on dates, talk to a couple chicks on the phone.” According to Elle, the “Umbrella” singer does not comment any further on her relationship with Brown but addresses the often asked “Jay Z question” where she responded “It’s crazy that you ask me that. People know that it’s not true”– referring to rumors that the two were previously involved. Surprised by the mogul’s recent marriage to Beyonce last month she goes on to say “I think it’s a kinda cliche’ question, and people know it’s not true, so I don’t even know why it’s still addressed to this day. I don’t even like to address it anymore.” Rihanna continues to appear on Kanye West’s Glow In the Dark tour through June 2nd. For more on this story pick up June’s issue of Elle on newstands now!
