Nothing like a bunch of grade-school caliber rumors to put a grown woman on the defensive.
Chris Brown‘s manager, Tina Davis, who was rumored to be the woman whose text message played a role in the Feb. 8 altercation between Brown and Rihanna, has flat-out denied, via her attorney, ever having had a romantic relationship with the R&B star.
“The relationship between Ms. Davis and Mr. Brown is that of manager and client,” declared attorney Marshall B. Grossman in a written statement issued Wednesday.
“There has never been any other relationship. The rumors in circulation are false. There are no emails between Ms. Davis and Mr. Brown of the type which have been described in media reports. If the source of the false rumors is identified, legal action will be taken. Given the nature of the legal issues affecting Mr. Brown, Ms. Davis will not be making any further statements.”
An affidavit filed by a Los Angeles police detective on Brown’s case states that, before their fight turned violent, Rihanna “picked up Brown’s cellular telephone and observed a three page text message from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.”
