Rihanna is back home after two months of touring Europe, but it’s not likely you'll see her reunite with Chris Brown upon her return to the United States.
In fact, insiders say she's learned her lesson - for good - about their toxic romance.
Rihanna and Chris Brown have given their romance many chances, only to yield several failed attempts, including a very public one this year.
While she forgave his brutal assault on her, the 25-year-old found that a lack of trust in her relationship with Chris Brown was the nail in the coffin.
Says a source close to the music superstar:
“[Rihanna] learned that without trust, you ain’t got sh!t. You have to trust the guy you’re with and vice-versa. When trust is gone, everything is bad."
"And that’s something that’s hard as f%*k to repair."
Indeed. And "It can be done, but both people have to be mature and willing to work on it. It’s not possible if only one person puts in the work."
"When [Rihanna] had some downtime on her tour, she would read relationship books and search online about love and how to rebuild trust."
"And guess what? She isn’t crazy. Rihanna did what she had to do.”
While Chris' recently-released "Can't Say No" lyrics would suggest that he's still pining for her, Rihanna appears to be less interested in a reconciliation.
Many felt that she dissed him on Instagram, writing “I hate when ex’s say 'I’m here if you need me.’ Where the f**k were you when we were together?”
She doesn’t name Chris ... but who else would she mean?
