R&B singers Chris Brown and Rihanna are a couple again, if a tabloid is correct. After Rihanna was allegedly domestically assaulted by Chris Brown in February of 2009 after the Grammy Awards, the public came to the defense of Rihanna, while the career of Brown was shattered for a few years until he returned to the spotlight early this year. At one point, Rihanna had a severe restraining order against Brown, but lowered it to level one because Brown wasn’t allowed within a certain distance from her, which ultimately barred him from finding work by appearing on award shows and other entertainment events that she was at.
According to a new report by Now Magazine, both Rihanna and Brown have rekindled their relationship once again. “Ri-Ri’s always loved Chris – that never changed,” a source told the tabloid. “They’ve texted and Skyped each other a lot recently and met up at a mutual friend’s house in Los Angeles after the restraining order expired. Ri-Ri wants to be with Chris but is worried about her career and fans. She’s trying to find a way to take him back publicly without letting down her supporters, her management and her friends or setting a bad example.”
However, once the news was leaked a few days back, the Twitter account of Rihanna exploded with comments from her fans, outraged that after Brown left her battered and bruised, she would even think of giving him a second chance. Therefore, if the news is correct, it shows that Rihanna is correct in that it won’t be easy to go public with the relationship once again. “Chris has said he’ll be as patient as she needs him to be but after being slammed on Twitter for just following him, she’s begun to worry that they may never get to be together in public.”
