Will Rihanna heed the advice of her mentor and former boss Jay-Z?

According to US magazine, Jay-Z, a longtime associate and mentor of sorts for the Barbadian superstar, is said to have told the “Take A Bow” singer to cut ties with Chris Brown.

“Jay-Z told Rihanna she needs to cut things out with Chris, at least in public,” a source told US Weekly.

“They’re taking a break.”

Rihanna goes house hunting.

News of Jay-Z’s advice is not surprising, if of course true, because he was previously quoted to have as “hit the ceiling” when news of Brown and Rihanna’s alleged altercation was made public in February.

Is there a Rihanna sex tape?
