Publicity reps are paid to dupe the unsuspecting public into believing whatever line they feed us. When a celebrity is in need of damage control because of persistent rumors such as he is sleeping with his manager who is old enough to be his mama – they usually resort to the manufactured relationship.

Hollywood has been faking celebrity relationships since the early days of moving pictures. Remember Rock Hudson who dated many Hollywood starlets so the public wouldn’t find out that he was gay? And who can forget the totally unbelievable relationship between Ciara and Bow Wow? Honestly, who did they think they were fooling?

Now we have Rihanna, the new Hollywood IT girl who we’re supposed to believe is dating the prince of R&B, Chris Brown. It would be cute if it were true, but unfortunately it isn’t. Good try though, Tina.

    You could not be more right! I’m skeptical too…especially of that other pic that surfaced of her walking around in his jacket. This union seems way too “assembled”!

  • ChokLitFactory

    Thanks for posting the TRUTH Sandra! I saw this ‘manufactured’ post on Concrete Loop and it was so obvious that Tina had done her homework. Plus the guy in the pic with Rhianna is not Chris – or at least its Chris in a different pair of jeans.

    Btw, I love the new site. Its much easier to post ( I was unsuccessful MANY times on your old site) and thks for keeping up with the posts regularly!

  • captpmo

    from this day foward, i now know for real that your are clueless. “good job tina” boyoboy

  • jadecool

    I don’t know, I just can’t see them dating. His homies bow wow and omarion were trying to make out that o was dating her. They are all close but I don’t see them sharing girls. They are just using her to make out that they aren’t gay, we all know they have sleepovers together. And rihanna doesn’t mind any attention.

    Why does it have to be fake? I think we forget that Rihanna is VERY young. Still a child really, just like Chris. All the girls love Chris. Why can’t Rihanna. And who said Ciara and Bow Wow’s relationship was fake. Bow Wow certainly doesn’t act like it was.

  • http://www.myspace.com/millyly milly

    I agree Bird

  • niastar

    It could be possible that they are together. They are both young stars and very attractive. We know you have a girl crush on Rhianna Sandra but that doesn’t mean that her and lil chris breezy can’t be together. Admire from afar boo, its okay.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    @Bird, but aren’t you forced to grow up quicker when you’re in the industry?

    Hmmm, that is a really tough question. I had major responsibilties from an early age and as such people often said I acted and looked older than I was from the time I was about 11 (the age I started making money). The thing is I was still a kid and liked kid things. So Chris and Rihanna may have to face issues that kids their age don’t have to deal with just yet, but that doesn’t replace life experience. They are going to experience life just like the other kids. On another site one blogger said Chris better be hitting 2 – 3 times a day and I was thinking, he probably is. Isn’t that what teenagers do?

  • H.B.I.C.

    They would make a very attractive couple if this were true. They are only a year apart, so it’s no big deal.

  • Sharonda

    Now at first Bow Wow was going around acting like Ciara was some trophy and I thought it was fake but I know how sincere Ciara is.Now to Chris Brown, can’t really tell if he is real or faking it.I don’t I ever saw the “Star” in him because I don’t know running out of breath on stage is something I don’t want to see anymore.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    Hmm, good answer Bird lol.

  • pinky2083

    I agree with Bird.

  • jadecool

    Dating or not, they called the paps there for a reason. I don’t care what anyone says Rihanna calls them to everywhere she goes. They wanted people to see them. And as much as I don’t like Bow wow his relationship with Ciara wasn’t fake. She is meant to be “your girl” then why make lies up about her when you know full well some people here will think its true

  • tbrown

    Ultimately, who cares? I mean, really. Other than their legions of teeny-bopper fans, who cares if they’re dating or not? :lol: If it’s setup or not? And I’m not buying the gay thing here. :lol: Not even gonna extend my brain cells to process the possibility. ;)

  • Bsoul

    I like her boots.

  • lala4444

    First of all with the back shot of rihanna and the guy with the up close and personal tour jacket on…thats not CHRIS BROWN. THATS THE SECURITY DUDE. IF THEY WOULD SHOW ALL THE PICTURES U WOULD SEE THE SECURITY GUYS FACE AND WAT HE’S WEARING. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT PEOPLE OF ALL GOSSIP SITES. CHRIS HAS ON A BLACK HAT…GEEZ. PLUS LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE GUYS HEAD.. AND HE’S HUGE..THAT AINT CHRIS BROWN…IN DA CAR, NOW THATS ANOTHER STORY.. SMIRK

  • Toodles

    First of all these are two entertainers. Whenever two entertainers are seen together RUMORS swirl. They could just be hanging out and all the sudden it becomes a dating thing!

    AND SANDRA YOUR THE ONLY ONE WHO CREATED AND BELIEVED THE RHIANNA AND CIARA RUMOR…MAYBE IT IS A SECRET FANTASY OF YOURS BUT IT ISNT TRUE..ITS A STORY YOU FABRICATED!

    JSUT BECAUSE TWO PWOPLE HANG OUT DOESNT MEAN THEY ARE DATING…
    AND THAT WASNT EVEN CHRIS IN THE PIC!

    AND FURTHER>>>>THESE ARE TEENAGERS AND GROWN FOLKS ARE ALL UP IN THERE BUSINESS>>>>KINDA SAD!

  • http://www.myspace.com/aaronmichaelofatm AaronMichael

    It’s all entertainment….what does it do? keep us entertained. Clearly it’s working.

  • Toodles

    niastar…girl ya go tme dying over here! so true!

  • tallie

    I agree with Sandra. This “relationship” is completely staged. Chris Brown is dating his manager. I totally don’t look at him the same as before.

    “When a celebrity is in need of damage control because of persistent rumors such as he is sleeping with his manager who is old enough to be his mama – they usually resort to the manufactured relationship.”

    Like the one you “manufactured” between Rihanna and Ciara, right? That’s the only reason you’re complaining. Chris Brown’s presence kinda thrusts a dagger into your “manufactured” accusations.

  • junkie2003

    Sandra, i knew when those allegations with his manager came out his camp was going to maufacture a relationship with another celebrity. Bow and Ciara was also fake relationship. i knew when the momentum of ”Like You” died out they were “gonna break up.” The same thing with her and 50 cent, believe they are n together either. Sandra, Let me ask you a question. Is it interesting that Rihanna has linked to every R&B for the last past year?

  • luxe.li.

    Well when Rihanna and Chris first made their way into the public eye as performers I always thought Chris liked Rihanna because of the comments he would make in public and they were seen together before the rumors of her and Omarion and Chris and his manager, and they did the Umbrella remix and performed together before the Chris and his manager’s accusations, Im not going to say they are together or not, but they are young and having fun, let them have fun or they might end up having the Britney-complex.

  • Mslovely

    I agree Sandra…I dont believe this ish either.

  • http://www.myspace.com/bettathaniwasb4 2bme

    hmmm..i remember hearing from Chris SEVERAL times that he would not date an idustry chic..wonder what “changed” his mind?

  • konartiz

    Girlz gon be Chris’ downfall!
    He got some chick knocked ( which aint no1 gon hear bout cuz he paper to make it go away), he hittin anything with legz (including his manager and superhead), and now agreein to publicity stunts.

  • buttercup24

    Honestly I don’t think Chris and Rihanna are dating. I just don’t get that vibe. I understand that Rihanna is still young but Chris doesn’t seem to be her swag. I also don’t think it would help her bad girl image being with the goofy adorable Chris Brown. I’ll admit if it is true they make a cute couple.

  • kat

    all i know is that they were in richmond at the mall together….on a weekday. are they dating? who knows and who cares!
    i don’t beleive that bow wow and ciara were ever a couple though. ci ci is too grown and sexy for that lil boy!

  • Tiffochris11

    ok…Bow and ciara were really dating! they knew eachother way before Ciara was famous! now rhianna ..people have to remember She’s not from here! she is from some island…trinidad ..i think..but anyway she doesnt know anybody!! all her friends are back home! jayz brought her here! she needs people her age she can hang with 2!

  • jcroft

    LMAO! HA!!

    I’m not believing them either.

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    CHRIS BROWN AND RHIANNA

    I can’t really say yey or ney on this, I mean I know that it fits the bill for the obvious publicity stunt, but you have to add human nature into the equation. They are on tour with each other right? So, even if Chris may be banging his manager, he as a young boy, may still want to bang out Rhianna. I mean just because he’s been laying the pipe to his manager doesn’t mean he’s faithful and in an actual relationship with her. The manager is probably getting played just like any other female groupie or celebrity Chris has poked. Harmones are a helluva drug! And Chris has probably overdosed at his age. They (he and Rhianna) may have had the opportunity to get to know each other a little better on tour, and just like hanging out and being in each other’s company…not saying that Chris wouldn’t tap that, cuz I know he would, but ya know their probably just cool.

    CIARA AND BOW WOW
    I thought that Bow Wow and Ci knew each other like a couple of years before they hooked up. Remember when she signed with Jazzy Pha and started kicking it in the A…I thought that was how they became aquainted before making their relationship official? It seemed like a publicity stunt because they were an odd couple, but I think Ci had feelings for Shad. His ego was the problem, and his trifling a** got caught up in some sh*t too, but when you are raised by people like Jermaine Dupri in an industry of loose women and old perverts how could you not get caught up eventually. Still I can’t say for sure what the relationship was, maybe after they hooked up a rep for both teams decided to capitalize off of it, and it didn’t seem like a big deal at the time being that they were already actually together, ya know??
