London: Chris Brown, who was charged in 2009 for assaulting former girlfriend Rihanna, is reportedly very concerned about her and has asked her to reduce alcohol consumption.
The 24-year-old singer let her hair down in Barbados this week and was seen downing beers on the day of her grandmother’s funeral and puffing on suspicious-looking cigs while taking a break in the Caribbean this week.
A source close to Brown said that the 23-year-old rapper was very concerned that she would end up dead like Amy Winehouse.
“Chris was really, really worried about her when he heard she was up drinking and partying by herself,” the Daily Star quoted the source as telling HollywoodLife.com.
“So he just wanted to reach out to her and show a little support, you know?” the source said.
The insider added that Brown had texted the Bajan star telling her to “cut out all that drinking”, but she had not yet replied.
The source said that there “isn’t any love lost between them at all.”
“He’s just being a man and being responsible, making sure she’s all right,” the source said.
The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker shrugged off her ex’s concern as she continued her Caribbean break in Barbados wearing a bikini and mesh t-shirt to ride a rubber tyre tube in the sea.
