Rihanna and Chris Brown Sort of Broken Up Again

by at . Comments

Guess it's no coincidence that Rihanna and Chris Brown are on opposite ends of the country right now. According to a source, they are "taking a break."

The source tells E! News that the pair are not calling it a formal breakup, but have decided to "put some distance between them" for the time being.

On the Mend

Rumor has it that they plan to see each other soon, however, Reps for both singers have not returned calls for comment on the breakup (or whatever it is).

Last Thursday, Rihanna flew to New York City, where she, Brandy, Beyoncé and Jay-Z reportedly enjoyed a quiet dinner together at the Spotted Pig Friday.

Then on Saturday, she continued moving on with life, dining with friends at Da Silvano. The "Umbrella" singer was reportedly in good spirits all weekend.

Meanwhile, Brown has remained in Los Angeles.

Two of music's hottest stars remain entangled in a surreal story that has not only dominated celebrity gossip, but put domestic assault back in the national spotlight.

The singer has spent the entire time working on his album, most recently at the Record Plant in Hollywood: "He's just putting ideas down for some songs he wrote," says a Brown source. "He needs to feel like he's moving forward."

A hearing in Chris Brown's case is scheduled for March 23. The court date will likely establish whether Rihanna will testify against him going forward.

Lawyers for both sides are trying to prevent that scenario.

Brown is charged with assault and criminal threats after "allegedly" using Rihanna as a speedbag and saying he was gonna kill her on February 7.

Should Rihanna and Chris Brown be together after what happened?
