Rihanna is currently busy promoting her new animated feature film, "Home," which premieres in theaters March 27. However, as the "Diamonds" singer discussed her favorite childhood animated films in an interview with Time Magazine, the songstress made fun of herself and spoke deprecatingly about her past love life. Was she throwing shade at ex-boyfriend Chris Brown?
E! Online reports that when asked about her favorite film growing up, Rihanna replied, "I fell in love with the Beast," referencing the 1991 Disney classic "Beauty and the Beast," however, noting that the film reflects her "dating record so far."
Co-star Jim Parsons jokingly replied, "Let's go there, shall we?" however, Rihanna didn't comment further.
While the "FourFiveSeconds" singer didn't name names, fans instantly took to social media to point out that she was most likely throwing shade at ex-boyfriend Brown, especially given their romantic history.
In addition, Rihanna has been linked to actor Leonardo DiCaprio as of late, however, it hasn't been confirmed by either party regarding the nature of their relationship.
The comment came only hours before Brown was set to appear in court regarding a probation hearing stemming from an assault case that involved Rihanna in 2009.
Brown and Rihanna may have gone their separate ways, with Brown moving on to a relationship with Karrueche Tran and the Barbadian beauty having been linked with the likes of Drake and Leonardo DiCaprio. However, Brown recently gave props to his ex in an interview with Hot 97 regarding her rumored dating of A-lister DiCaprio.
"I respect her enough to respect her privacy and her space, because I can't believe everything I hear in the news. But what I see, I'll be like, 'OK cool, there might be something else going on.'"
Brown adds, "I'm gonna have to give her that, because you know what? Ain't nowhere else you coulda went though. High five. You can only go up, and that's the upper, upper echelon...I'm not even a hater. I'll give you a slap on the back, booty, everything, 'Hey, do your thing. Good game.'"
