Rihanna was a big winner at 2013 Billboard Music Awards, but she was not in attendance. Instead, Rihanna was seen out to dinner at G. Baldi in Santa Monica.
According to HollywoodLife.com, Rihanna wanted to avoid her ex-beau, Chris Brown, who also was nominated for several awards and performed his new song, Fine China. The two reportedly haven't spoken in a week and Brown has been seen on several occasions with Karrueche Tran.
However, last night, Brown flew solo on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards.
Even though Rihanna missed the awards, she didn't forget to acknowledge them.
“#BBMAs #thatshowweballout #putitindamail #phuckyophanz #phuckyophav #betherenextyear” she tweeted.
“Thank you #BILLBOARD for showing my fans the love they deserve!!! I’m truly grateful for these 4 awards that you’ve rewarded us! Thank you again!!” she continued.
