Rihanna’s Belated Birthday with Mr. and Mrs. Jay-Z

Some people get by with a little help from their friends. In Rihanna’s case, it’s big-time moguls and entertainers with even bigger pockets.

The recently battered songstress was spied leaving a girlfriend’s pad in New York City last night en route to a belated bday bash with Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Brandi. She’s sure in party mode because only two nights ago she was seen in Los Angeles healing through karaoke.

In search of grub, the crew headed over to The Spotted Pig restaurant in Manhattan’s West Village for dinner. 

As for Chris Brown, rumors that he and Rihanna had a duet in the works after their violent incident have turned out to be false.  A People magazine source says, “Contrary to published reports, Chris Brown and Rihanna did not record a duet after the incident.”
