Rihanna and Chris Brown, the most dysfunctional industry couple since Ike and Tina Turner, are back together again, according to online reports. We can now add Rihanna's name to the long list of weak women, who crawled back to their abusers because they lack self esteem and don't feel they deserve better.
No doubt Rihanna believes CB beat her azz out of love for her. And I'm sure she thinks if she had only stayed in her lane, and kept her trap shut, he wouldn't have had to put those two knots on her head. So she's convinced herself that the vicious beating she received at his hands was all her fault for making him lose his temper the way he did. I'm sure she reminded herself that he was just being a man and she should have known better.
Someone with some common sense needs to explain to Rihanna that a man (or a punk, in Chris Brown's case) doesn't have the right to put his hand on her for any reason. And saying sorry doesn't quite cut it.
Keep in mind that, according to insiders, this is not the first time these two have gone toe to toe. Anyway, I'm done with this story. Good luck to both of them:
If a series of reports breaking on Friday night (February 27) are true, Rihanna and Chris Brown have reunited and are staying at a house owned by Diddy near Miami – and Rihanna's father has already said he'll be "supportive" of their reunion.
Just before 8 p.m. ET on Friday, People.com published a story citing an unidentified source as saying of Brown and Rihanna, "They're together again. They care for each other. While Chris is reflective and saddened about what happened, he is really happy to be with the woman he loves."
Approximately two hours later, UsMagazine.com cited a "Rihanna pal" as confirming the reunion and saying, "She's not listening to anyone. And of course Puff [Diddy] got involved in this."
The site also reported the pal as saying that Brown has been seen "smiling, riding a jet ski, and flexing his arm muscles," and that Rihanna arrived four days ago.
Not an hour later, Us quoted Rihanna's father, Ronald Fenty, as saying, "I love my daughter with whatever road she takes. I'm behind her win or lose. I will be supportive. If that's the road she wants to choose, I'm behind her. I hope to see her soon. I talked to her after her birthday, and she told me she's OK." Fenty had spoken with both magazines earlier this month, and told People that he hoped Rihanna would "stand up for women all over the world" and added of Brown, "You think you know somebody, but you really don't."
At press time, reps for Chris Brown, Rihanna and Diddy had not responded to MTV News' requests for comment on the reunion reports.
Friday's news comes less than three weeks after the couple's alleged altercation early on February 8, which caused both to miss scheduled appearances at the Grammy Awards.
In recent days, many media outlets have reported that the couple have been in contact, citing unidentified sources. Rihanna issued a statement last Friday saying that she "remains strong [and] is doing well." Brown issued a statement the week before saying he's "sorry and saddened ... over what transpired." [LINK]
