American singer Chris Brown is reportedly unhappy seeing a photo of his former girlfriend Rihanna with American actor Donald Grover doing the rounds of the internet. In the image, the pair appear to be working on a secret project together in Cuba.

According to a report in Hollywood Life, the Loyal singer is worried that the two might get romantically involved. A source said, "Chris is burning with jealousy right now, he can't stand to see Rihanna getting close to another guy. But it's extra hard because Donald is not just any good looking guy, he's also super talented."

"Chris is actually a fan of Donald's, or he was a fan before he found out that Rihanna and him were working together. Now he's just envious and imagining the worst," the insider added.

"Chris is being totally paranoid because Donald isn't even single. But Chris doesn't trust any guy around Rihanna, including Donald, because he fully believes that any man getting close to her is going to want to get with her. Chris says Rihanna's just so damn sexy that no man could resist her," the source shared.

Brown infamously assaulted the Grammy winner in 2009, by hitting her so forcefully that she had major bruises on her face, a split lip, and a bloody nose. However, the two of them still have a strong and complicated bond, despite their public breakup and drama.

Meanwhile, during an interview with T magazine, Rihanna, who was rumored to have split with Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel recently, talked about relationships and the qualities she looks for in a man. She said, "Guys need attention. They need that nourishment, that little stroke of the ego that gets them by every now and then. I'll give it to my family, I'll give it to my work — but I will not give it to a man right now."

"I'm turned on by guys who are cultured. That'll keep me intrigued. They don't have to have a single degree, but they should speak other languages or know things about other parts of the world or history or certain artists or musicians. I like to be taught. I like to sit on that side of the table," she added.
