Here’s an excerpt from Star Magazine’s report:

Chris has been clashing with Melissa ever since he began dating Rihanna in 2007. “He didn’t like it that Melissa had the keys to Rihanna’s house and car and access to her checkbook.”

“She even tailed along during some of their dates together – obviously not very romantic! Melissa’s presence irritated Chris; he never understood how Rihanna could have this bulldog glued to her side at all times.”
