Chris Brown and Rihanna are dangerously close to getting back together, and not just in the recording studio this time. Their respective camps are not happy.
The singers' friends are desperately trying to keep them apart for their own good, sources say, even though there is an obvious, mutual spark between them.
According to sources, Rihanna is still head over heels for Chris, despite the fateful night three years ago before the Grammys when he left her looking like this.
She claims to not give a damn what people think, but those close to her say if it weren't for the media and her fans, she would already have taken him back.
Chris, meanwhile, has extremely strong feelings for Rihanna - his current girlfriend Karrueche Tran be damned - and hasn't been shy about hiding them.
Now, sources tell us, Rihanna and Chris' friends are terrified they'll get back together, and they're doing everything they can to prevent a possible reunion.
Friends on BOTH sides are expressing strong reservations to Rih and CB about spending so much time together, saying it's bad personally AND professionally.
As one source put it, "You can't hold back love." As Rih says in "Hard," "You can say whatever, Im'ma do whatever, no pain is forever, yup, you know this."
Should Rihanna and Chris Brown date again?
