Teairra Marí To Rihanna: “Keep My Name Out Your Mouth, Sweetie”

 August 28th 2008    News    By: vikki     With 28 Comments  Share:

Teairra Marí recently spoke to KING magazine about former label-mate Rihanna’s comments about her last year. Check out an excerpt from Marí’s feature below:

Teairra took offense to some comments Rihanna made to Atlanta’s Peach magazine regarding her dismissal from the Roc. Rihanna said, “You have to be good to people. I could very easily say its all karma…”

“They asked her how she felt playing second fiddle to me, which I never felt [she was]. She had the number-one song in the country on Hot 100; I didn’t, so she couldn’t be playing second fiddle to me. When I heard that I was upset, like, ‘Why would she ever go there? Keep my name out your mouth, sweetie.”

Neither Rihanna nor Chris Brown has officially confirmed their much speculated romance, but more evidence keeps emerging that they indeed are couple. Following their many public appearances, both stars reportedly have moved in together.

Rihanna and Chris are reported to have been spotted hunting for a new Los Angeles condo, which they supposedly plan to share. Star magazine quoted eyewitnesses as claiming to have seen the alleged lovers viewing units at Beverly Hills’ luxury Sierra Tower for several times since July.

“She and Chris want to live together,” a source told the magazine. “They play their music loud though, so they want a condo that’s soundproof.” Star went on claiming that Rihanna is very serious about finding a house for her and Chris to live in together. She even has new listings e-mailed to her when she’s out of town.

Still there has yet comment from Rihanna, Chris, or their people about report on them moving in together. Amidst such talk, the pair were seen spending a quality time together, shopping at the Beverly Center in West Hollywood on Saturday, August 30. They apparently tried to hide from the spotlight, covering up their heads in hoodies.
