Even someone as cool and famous as Rihanna can come home late one night and think, “Damn, I’m by myself and I got feelings.” We all know what that leads to: sub-tweeting. That’s when you talk about someone without naming names, but everybody knows who it is. There should probably be another word for it when it’s on Instagram, because that was Rihanna’s chosen platform to call out her exes.
In a post on Sunday, Rihanna shared a text image that read, “None of my exs are married or in happy relationships so it’s safe to say I wasn’t da problem lol.”
The message is particularly notable because Rihanna mostly shares photos of herself looking incredible and leaves the memes and statements for more amateur celebs. Who inspired her comments?
According to Hollywood Life, they’re obviously about Chris Brown and his failure to launch a healthy romantic involvement with any of the many women still inexplicably interested in him. A source told them that Brown knows what’s up, saying, “Chris feels shaded by Ri’s IG post and thinks she’s talking directly to him… She’s right. He’s not married, not in a happy relationship and Karrueche [Tran] turned out to be a complete and utter disaster of a relationship. He doesn’t blame Ri for anything and wishes he never gave Karrueche the time or day when he and Ri were on the outs. Obviously Breezy wishes he could do a lot of things differently but the good thing is he’s learned from every past mistake he’s made in his life thus far.”
On his own Instagram at around the same time, Brown posted a video that may be another subliminal:
But WHO is corny? It doesn't take a genius to guess the answer to that. Notably, Rihanna could also be talking about Drake, as the status of their relationship remains to be a mystery. First, we were all 'omg, they're in love' and now we're like 'who is India Love though, DRAKE?!' Le sigh. Only time will tell.
