Jay Z MTV VMA Chris Brown. Jay-Z's Very Public VMA's Snub to Chris Brown. A beaming Beyoncé revealed her pregnancy to the world by rubbing her burgeoning baby bump to the audience at the VMA’s on Sunday night.

And while delighted dad-to-be Jay Z offered a huge smile for the cameras to that news - his reaction to bad boy Chris Brown couldn't have been more frosty.

Jay Z has still not forgiven the 22 year old singer after his violent attack on Rihanna back in 2009, indeed, when news of the incident broke, the music mogul was said to have been furious, referring to Chris as a “walking dead man.”

Having signed Rihanna to his then label Def Jam back in 2005, Jay Z has developed a close bond with the 23 year old 'Umbrella' star. And it couldn't have been more evident than when Kanye West rose to his feet to applaud Chris Brown’s performance on Sunday night.

'Jay-Z remained seated, quietly sipping his drink,' said a source.

'he was not impressed.'

Rihanna stayed away from the star-studded event, despite being nominated for Best Collaboration with Kid Cudi and Kanye West for "All Of The Lights".
