Did Chris Brown give Rihanna herpes? Is this the reason for the high-profile couples breakup and recent incident of violence leading to his arrest? The answer appears to be no, and no. The rumors sweeping the internet are lacking credibility, but that hasn’t stopped some gossip sites from reporting on them.
Media Takeout has done a good job of reporting on the incident Sunday night before the Grammy Awards show in which they both canceled their appearances at the last minute. Turns out the reason was for alleged domestic violence in which Chris Brown allegedly hit Robyn Fenty, whose stage name is Rihanna herself.
But herpes? The bottom line, they say, is the rumor is false as they attempt to set the record straight:
Chris did not punch Rihanna in her face because she gave him herpes. This rumor is floating around the net and it’s A LIE. Chris saw the cold sore just like the rest of us weeks ago – and it didn’t stop him from messing with her. This story is nothing to joke about. Domestic violence is a serious subject, and Chris Brown is facing serious charges – we shouldn’t make up fake ish about this situation
But others continue to report on the gossip which has even prompted mentions on talk radio stations in the country. Once a genie gets out of a bottle, it is hard to put her back. So we hear from the Inquisitr in Australia:
Sources allegedly close to Brown allege that the fight leading to the domestic violence incident occurred because Rihanna gave Chris Brown herpes.
And how did Rihanna end up with an STD to begin with? Claims are that she picked it up from Jay-Z!
And the reports from Wager Web report on what is being said on the radio.
Tom Joyner, who has a nationally syndicated radio broadcast out of Atlanta’s Kiss 104.1, added the reason that Brown is mad at the Barbados singer for giving him and STD.
Earlier a respected gossip site Bossip got into the act with this report:
Bossip just exclusively learned that Chris Brown and Rihanna got into a heated argument which was reportedly about how Rihanna gave him Herpes, which resulted in him giving Rihanna a black eye. Our source tells us that there is a warrant out for his arrest and neither star will be performing or attending the Grammys this evening. You heard it here first.
Again, the wild rumors appear to have no basis in provable fact. People cite unnamed sources and rumor feeds rumor. Therefore, Right Celebrity believes that Rihanna did not give Chris Brown herpes or any other STD, and we hope this articles sets the record straight. The true facts of the case will become known in time so let’s all wait for them.
