First she told People.com in June that Jay-Z hand-picks men she can date. Now Rihanna, R&B songstress behind mind-numbing super-hit Umbrella, is accusing him and his label of death threats.
According to her story, five years ago, Rihanna gave a successful audition in front of Def Jam execs, including Jay-Z. They were so taken with her that they wouldn’t let her leave without signing with the label. She was fourteen at the time. "The audition definitely went well,” she said, according to Contact Music. “They (Def Jam) locked me into the office till 3am and Jay Z said, 'There's only two ways out. Out the door after you sign this deal. Or through this window...' and we were on the 29th floor.”
I may be jumping the gun, calling bullshit on this, but something doesn’t seem quite right. First of all, the signature of a 14 year-old on any contract is about as legally binding as a pinkie-swear. Second, why wait five years to drop the bomb, especially when you’ve got a song with the man you’re accusing riding the megahit wave? It just doesn’t make sense.
