This story is in Mike Walker’s column in the National Enquirer. For Demi Moore’s sake, I hope this isn’t true. Given what we know about how she regularly tweets bikini photos of herself, along with the fact that we’ve heard for months that she’s still hopelessly hung up on Ashton, this isn’t much of a stretch. You can easily imagine her taking some well-lit, well-angled photos of herself and sending them to Ashton in a moment of weakness to show him “what he’s missing.” It’s sad and desperate, but she was with the guy for 9 years and she’s not ready to move on. It happens.
Walker adds a twist to this story, which kind of makes me think it’s too good to be true. Supposedly Ashton’s latest hookup, Rihanna, (who issued a half-assed denial recently that convinced no one) found the nude photos of Demi on Ashton’s phone and chewed him out for it. Have we even heard that Rihanna was on the Two and a Half Men set before this point? You would think that TMZ or Radar would have picked up on that.
My exclusive… The buzz leaking from [the] “Two and a Half Men” dressing room says RiRi freaked and fled in fury after she “stumbled across” sexy, near-naked pics Demi had texted to Ashton – “After their breakup!” Said my backstage source: “Rihanna exploded, telling Ashton in no uncertain terms that she does not want to get involved if there’s the slightest chance of anyone getting abused – physically or emotionally.” Wow! So Demi’s still relying on nude-ish pics to keep Kutcher on the leash? Don’t think so, girl!

I don’t know, it sounds too far fetched to me, but it could be true. Also in the “far fetched” department is a story in this week’s Star that claims that Chris Brown told Ashton to stay away from Rihanna, only he told Diddy to tell Ashton to step off on his behalf. What grade are they in? “My friend told me you were dating his ex girlfriend, and he doesn’t like it. He’s going to send you some angry tweets if you don’t stop seeing her.” I shouldn’t joke, we all know that Chris Brown is capable of more than just angry tweets, although he’s probably too chicken to hit another dude. Here’s the Star story, for what it’s worth:
Chris Brown… “sent a message to Ashton,” says a source close to Rihanna, who had been quietly seeing Chris while dating [Ashton]. “He warned Ashton via their mutual friend, Diddy, to keep his distance from her. At first, Ashton took it as a joke – but Diddy told him that Chris was dead serious and really worked up about the idea that Rihanna has moved on.”
Ashton, 34, was already unhappy that his relationship with Rihanna has been revealed. In the wake of his messy split from wife Demi Moore last fall, “It’s the last thing he needs. And now Rihanna thinks that Ashton could cut off all contact with her because of Chris’ interference, which she thinks is absolutely what he wants,” says the source…
Rihanna was so angry after learning of his challenge to Ashton, she called her jealous ex and told him to back off, said the source. “This fling with Ashton is a way for her to forget about wanting Chris back.”

At first I didn’t buy Ashton and Rihanna as even a casual hookup couple, but I’m slowly being convinced. They may be over at this point, as OK! Magazine recently reported. Maybe this crap with Chris threatening Ashton (through Diddy, I can’t even) is what ended it. Rihanna seems kind of unhinged lately and I could see her getting with Ashton. I could also see him bolting at the first sign of trouble. If they did have some kind of hookup relationship, I doubt Rihanna took it seriously anyway. She’s all about being “hardcore” lately.
Rihanna is shown at the airport in Tokyo on 3-31-12. She’s since gone back to brunette. Ashton is shown outside a Laker’s game on 4-3-12. Credit: WENN.com
