Chris Brown's reps have come forward to deny speculation that the singer has been seeing ex-girlfriend Rihanna, despite a series of suggestive tweets and an 'insider' report claiming the two have been sleeping together. In response to a recent Us Weekly report, Brown's rep Jeff Raymond stated "He and Rihanna are just friends. He is with his girlfriend, Karrueche, and is not cheating."
Us Weekly claims that Brown and Rihanna have been "secretly hooking up” for nearly a year, with a source quoted as saying, “She comes to see him anytime she’s in L.A.” The two are prohibited from seeing each other by a court order stemming from Brown's brutal assault on his then-girlfriend in 2009.
“Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that,” says an alleged Rihanna insider.
In late December, Brown tweeted, “Love U more than u know!” Rihanna, who follows Brown on Twitter, tweeted one minute later: “I’ll always love u #1LOVE.” A few days later, following a public appearance by Brown and his current girlfriend, the Bajan beauty followed up with yet another curious tweet: “How can you lie to her, while u lay with me???…..If you don’t have an answer, you don’t have to answer."
What would happen if it is proven that Chris Brown and Rihanna are involved again? What sort of message might this news send to the young fans of both singers, many of whom blamed Rihanna for the assault in the first place?
