It seems hard to believe now, but there was a time when Rihanna lay next to boyfriend Chris Brown with a look of satisfaction - as opposed to terror - on her face.
There was a time when the term "banging" between this couple was a synonym for love-making, not face-pummeling.
There was even a time when Chris Brown made Rihanna laugh, not bleed out of numerous orifices as the result of a beating so brutal it made professional boxers wince.
Those days are long gone, of course. But the following photos serve as a reminder of happier times between this pair.
While not as intimate as the recently-discovered Rihanna nude pics, we've uncovered a few shots of the singers from the days of yore. Where did it all go wrong?
From the bedroom to the courtroom: Rihanna will testify as a witness for the prosecution in a preliminary hearing on felony charges against Brown for his alleged assault on her.
So, where did these photos come from? It's unclear. But we know this:
Chris Brown has an album coming out, Chris Brown says he is not a monster and now these pics have surfaced that are meant to show Chris Brown's soft side.
Seems like someone is doing his publication relations homework to us. What a violent phony.
