Can it be true? Are American Idol guest stars, Rihanna and Chris Brown back together? Or are they just friends? Considering Brown dumped girlfriend, Karrueche Tran on Wednesday, it appears a bit more than friendship in the air for these two!
Rihanna and Brown had a tumultuous relationship that ended in a brutal assault. Brown was subsequently convicted in 2009 and ordered to stay away from Rihanna for 5 years but the order was lifted in 2011.
According to the LA Times, Rihanna told Oprah in an August interview that she still loved Brown but the two were “only friends” because of his relationship with Tran. And Alan Duke with CNN said there was some kissy-kissy action between RiRi and Brown at last month’s MTV Video Music Awards and again on Monday at Griffin nightclub, not to mention multiple sightings of the two together.
On Thursday, Brown confirmed the breakup with Tran and said, “I love Karrueche very much, but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I’d rather be single, allowing us to both be happy in our lives.”
As for Tran, she bowed out gracefully with a simple tweet, “Bye baby.”
All signs have pointed to an inevitable romantic reunion between Rihanna and Brown. And with Tran out of the way, they are free to explore the possibilities.
Are Rihanna and Chris Brown a couple? Or are they just friends? Is it wise for these two to reunite? Do you think things will end badly between them again? Let us know what you think and how you feel about it by posting a comment below.
