‘I Don’t Care!’

She’s the queen of con­tro­versy, but this week Ri’s bro­ken the girl code too…

Look (UK) - - COVER STORY -

Is it just us, or have Ri­hanna and Ch­eryl been singing each other’s praises for­ever? Pub­licly gush­ing about be­ing one an­other’s girl crush, they’re ba­si­cally #long dis­tance friend­ship goals. So when we found out that Ri was set to be Jean­bernard Fer­nan­dez-versini’s ‘guest of hon­our’ at his new res­tau­rant open­ing in Cannes this week, we were left scratch­ing our heads.

The res­tau­rant (called Versini) will launch at this year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val and while we can see why Ri might want to pop by for a nosey (FYI, it does look in­cred­i­ble) isn’t this a lit­tle bit shady to­wards Chez? Af­ter all, re­cent di­vorcees Ch­eryl and JB aren’t ex­actly civil – not long ago, JB ad­mit­ted to hear­ing about Ch­eryl’s preg­nancy ‘on the news’.

But ac­cord­ing to a close pal speak­ing ex­clu­sively to Look, Ri­hanna doesn’t see any­thing in­ap­pro­pri­ate about hang­ing out with JB. ‘She ac­tu­ally met him through Ch­eryl and thinks he’s pretty cool,’ says our source. ‘So she ba­si­cally jumped at the chance. And Ri­hanna’s in town, so why wouldn’t she pop in and help a mate out?

‘Plus JB is good at in­tro­duc­ing peo­ple, so it’s a net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity. It’s weird given his sit­u­a­tion with Ch­eryl, but Ri didn’t think twice – she’s not tip­toe­ing around any­one.’

We bet JB – whose di­vorce from Chez, 33, last year re­port­edly left him a lit­tle un­pop­u­lar in the show­biz world – is buzzing over Ri­hanna show­ing in­ter­est. It’s def­i­nitely a step up from his last guest of hon­our at his Cosy Box pop-up last year: Eastenders’ Sid Owen.

While JB, 36, is said to be pretty chuffed with this year’s guestlist, we can’t help but won­der what’s got into Ri. ‘The truth is, Ri­hanna doesn’t mind cre­at­ing con­tro­versy when she’s in limbo like this,’ re­veals our source.

‘She’s also bored. While she’s got a ton of guys chas­ing her, none of them re­ally fits the bill and her days of play­ing the field just for the sake of it are long gone. She’s lost her fil­ter lately and isn’t go­ing to apol­o­gise for any­thing.’ We’d ex­pect noth­ing less from Ri.
