Rihanna and Chris Martin team up to 'help' mutual friend Jay-Z

The rumour mill went into over drive last week when photos of the pair dining together surfaced, prompting many to wonder if the meal was a romantic one.

But sources close to the musical duo say that in actual fact, Chris and Rihanna met up for crisis talks regarding Jay.

"Rihanna and Chris met up for dinner because they are worried about Jay. Apparently he hasn't been in touch lately, ever since his marriage problems surfaced," an insider divulged to British magazine Grazia.

Since footage was leaked of Solange Knowles, younger sister of Jay's wife Beyoncé, attacking Jay in an elevator, the power couple have had to face continuous questions about the state of their marriage.

Rihanna, 26, collaborated with Chris on her 2012 smash hit Princess of China, though they're not known to share a particularly close friendship, so photos of the pair raised eyebrows.

But the source explains the two music stars hatched a plan to offer their support to Jay, who's had a rough time of it lately.

"Jay is such a big part of both of their lives, and they want to know that they are there for him. Especially given what Chris has been going through. He seems keen to offer any help her can," the source added.

Chris has also had a tough time in love recently, after it was announced he had "consciously uncoupled" from wife Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this year.

Reports of affairs and a love child continue to surround Jay and Beyoncé, but the pair are putting on a united front.

They tied the knot in 2008 and are proud parents to two-year old Blue Ivy. Beyoncé shared a series of cute snaps of Jay and Blue over the weekend to celebrate Father's Day.

it's a hard knock life

I guess as long as Chris didn't turn into an obnoxious shit thinking he's a bad boy for dating Rhianna I'd be okay with it.

Him dating anyone but the Goop would be a step up. Gwen is a scary bitch.

I actually don't mind tbh, I'm def here for this
britty_stitches 18th-Jun-2014 12:17 am (UTC)
Im always thinking..what if Beyonce knows too much? If he DID have his mistress killed,there's a huge chance she knows. Leaving him might put her in more danger than she's in staying with him :(

It took a while, but I've decided that I don't hate Coldplay's new album Ghost Stories. It's mostly because of Magic and Always In my Head.
cranberryfitch 18th-Jun-2014 01:01 am (UTC)
there def are a few gems on there. i love those two. still can't get through midnight and oceans tho
markedglory 18th-Jun-2014 02:17 am (UTC)
midnight is one of the best songs on the album tbh
tulipinacup 18th-Jun-2014 02:01 am (UTC)
the bonus track "ghost story" is so good

Fly On/O is stunning. Having Apple and her friend on the end makes it even prettier.

Quotation marks should've been 'mutual friend' not 'help'

"her 2012 smash hit Princess of China"

hers? p l e a t h e
blokesomething 18th-Jun-2014 03:35 am (UTC)
It's kinda hard for me to ship Rih with someone cuz I think she's one of the most beautiful & talented women in the world and has the potential to be an amazing person (after she gets over her immaturity), but Chris seems like a good guy & is as hot as a anglo-saxon man can get. They should at least be fwb/collaborators.
