The father of Chris Brown’s manager is denying reports that his daughter is the author of a three-page text message that Rihanna saw on his phone just before their violent incident on Feb. 8.
TMZ reported that Davis, 39, is the person who texted the singer on the night of the incident, referred to in the police report as “a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.”
But the manager’s father, George Davis, told E! News that the latest speculation surrounding his daughter is simply a rehashing of rumors from 2007, when she was reported to have carried on a romantic relationship with the 19-year-old Brown when he was 16.
“They were saying that before. Those are old rumors,” Mr. Davis said.
Brown’s camp has long denied that that the singer and Davis were ever romantically involved, releasing a statement to Vibe magazine in November 2007 that said, “Chris Brown and his manager, Tina Davis, have a strictly professional relationship. …Ms. Davis has been instrumental in helping Chris achieve success as a multi-talented singer/dancer/actor. Rumors that the relationship goes beyond a working one, are not only patently false; they diminish her efforts and his undeniable talents.”
Tina Davis herself is striking back as well. She has authorized her attorney, Marshall B. Grossman of Bingham McCutchen LLP, to issue the following statement:
“The relationship between Ms. Davis and Mr. Brown is that of manager and client. 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.”
