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.

But, with Rihanna's birthday party and their two remix duets released this week, friends fear they're fighting an uphill battle and that this is inevitable.

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?

Rihanna and Chris Brown collaborated on a pair of remixes recently, a surprising move considering all that transpired between the former lovebirds.

The 2009 Grammys marked the beginning of a domestic violence drama that revealed a darker side to Chris' relationship at the time with Rihanna.

But nearly three years to the day he beat her senseless, Brown, 22, and Rihanna, 24, are again spending time together - musically and personally.

The former couple, whose friendly behavior is no secret on Twitter and in person, hit the studio last week to record parts on each other's songs.

The remix of Rihanna's single "Birthday Cake," featuring Chris Brown, lacks no shortage of sex appeal – not to mention some very NSFW lyrics.

"Girl, I wanna f--k you right now," sings Brown, whose return to the Grammys sparked controversy. "Been a long time/Been missing your body."

While Rih doesn't get as down and dirty with explicit lyrics on Brown's remix of "Turn up the Music," she suggests a rather revealing message.

"I love you, baby," she sings.

Rihanna clearly does not care about any public response to her being with Chris again, but singing with him and dating him are different things.

So far, there's no indication that they're back together, despite the rumors of them hooking up numerous times. But it makes you wonder.

What do you think of their remixes - and the fact that Rihanna and Chris Brown are collaborating with each other in general?

"Girl I wanna f*** you right now. Been a long time, I've been missing your body." - the first line of Chris Brown and Rihanna's remix of "Birthday Cake"

Despite suggestive lyrics like that, and plenty of other rumors surrounding Chris Brown and Rihanna, Karrueche Tran isn't bothered by all the noise.

That's because the two have an open relationship, according to reports.

"Karrueche isn't stupid, and she has told friends that they have an open relationship. She never asks about Rihanna, ever," says a source of Brown's girlfriend.

"Chris will take several days to call her back at times, and that is OK with Karreuche. She doesn't pressure or hound Chris, it's just not what she is about."

"She recognizes that they are both young, and she isn't going to let the fact Chris is spending time with his ex-girlfriend come between what they have."

What they have? It doesn't sound like much ... but good for them!

Karreuche and Brown were recently seen in Miami, and she "is clearly enjoying the attention and notoriety she is getting being his girlfriend," a source says.

As for rumors that Rihanna may become his girlfriend instead?

Looks like the rumors were true ... well, at least one of them was.

The alleged collaboration of Rihanna and Chris Brown on a remixed version of her single "Birthday Cake" is very much the real deal, as the former couple tweeted it out on Monday evening ... which was Rihanna's 24th birthday, fittingly.

Take a listen to their tag-team effort below:

"@rihanna goo.gl/ttRJR YIKES!!! Cake, cake, cake!" Brown tweeted with a link to Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix, which features his new, suggestive lyrics.

Shortly after Rihanna responded with, "#RihannaNavy Come and put ya name on it!!!!! RT @chrisbrown: @rihanna goo.gl/ttRJR YIKES!!! Cake, cake, cake!"

So ... there's that. She then linked to a second collaboration between the two, a remixed version of his "Turn Up the Music." Take a listen to that after the jump:

If you thought Tweeting birthday wishes to Rihanna was the most talked-about thing Chris Brown would do all day on social media, you thought wrong!

WWE heavyweight champion CM Punk and the hot-tempered R&B singer have been going at it on Twitter. It's safe to say you could call punk a "hater."

Punk randomly tweeted that he wants to "curb stomp" Brown at an upcoming WWE event, so Brown can "fight somebody that can defend themselves."

Brown caught wind of the tweet ... and decided to fire back.

He wrote: "@CMpunk needs more followers. Such a leader! Not to mention the roids hes on has made it utterly impossible for him pleasure a women."

Zing.

In his typical, sarcastic tone, Chris went on to add, "@CMpunk contact my assistant and I'll have em send u an autographed pic for my biggest FAN!!!"

Seriously, Chris, please put the phone down, man. Why do you think the "haters" won't let you move on? You're just making it worse on yourself. CHILL.

Chris' tweet about Punk's junk not working has obviously been removed. Something tells us Brown's mom is going to be far from pleased about this.

CM Punk, who has said that he's never taken drugs, has not responded to the steroid allegations or the implication that he can't please "a women."

Also no word on whether Chris accepts this fight invite:

Holy. Cow. We now have proof that Chris Brown and Rihanna are in contact:

Rihanna Topless, Blonde Haired

He wished her a Happy Birthday on Twitter and she said thank you! OMFG!

Right around midnight this morning, Brown took to his Twitter to write "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!" - Robyn Fenty being Rihanna's real name - to the birthday girl.

Rih, who was physically assaulted by Chris in 2009, but has since warmed up to the star again to some degree, responded "Thanks!" and re-tweeted the message.

Rih Tweet

No doubt about it, girl's friendly with her ex again.

While Chris attended her b-day bash last week, there's no proof of them together since his peeps slapped anyone with a camera with a confidentiality agreement.

He didn't want pics of him with her to get out, but evidently has no qualms about sending along a public Twitter birthday wish, and she has no problems responding.

The restraining order against Chris has been lifted, so this isn't shady at all.

The birthday message comes as rumors continue to swirl about the two collaborating on a remix for one of their new singles ... fittingly called "Birthday Cake."

Rihanna turns 24 today. Chris, who is still dating Karrueche Tran (and living with her, we're told) despite the Rihanna romance rumors, will be 23 in May.

Still, we ask: Should Rihanna and Chris get back together?

Rumors have been flying that Chris Brown and Rihanna are getting back together, however, dude is still dating Karrueche Tran, and it's apparently going well.

Sources close to Karrueche say that she is not perturbed by the rumors about Rihanna, because she is currently dating - and living with (!) Chris Brown.

Guess she would know better than a bunch of tabloids ...

  • A Karrueche Tran Pic

Furthermore, after Brown made his not-so-secret appearance at Rihanna's birthday party, he whisked Karrueche off to Miami for a romantic Valentine's Day. Aww.

So all is well in paradise? Looks like it. Probably. Maybe.

A source tells Us Weekly that Karrueche knows that Chris Brown and Rihanna have hooked up (she thinks it happens at the studio), but is sanguine about it all.

She isn't going to throw away her meal ticket break up with her boyfriend over a few minor indiscretions, after all ... you gotta look at the big picture here.

So Us claims, anyway.

Karrueche Tran is an aspiring model, if anyone wondered/cared. One who does not care about his past, obviously. Miranda Lambert would not approve.

Miranda Lambert was an outspoken critic of last Sunday's Chris Brown Grammy lovefest, ripping CBS and the music extravaganza for Brown's prominent role.

She's still not over it, calling out the R&B star in concert this week.

Country star Lambert wondered aloud on Twitter why the convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances during the Grammy Awards.

"Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl," Miranda tweeted, adding "He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place."

"Gunpowder and Lead" is her song about a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband. She performed it in concert Thursday - with a message for Brown.

Before singing, Lambert pulled a poster out of the audience reading "Take Notes Chris Brown." "Get a good picture now, put it on Twitter," she said.

"I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans ... but see, I have to speak my mind because where I come from beating up on a woman is never okay.”

As she sang, Lambert added "So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun." The Amherst, Mass., crowd went wild:

Brown has come under heavy criticism for his response to the "haters" as much as for the infamous 2009 incident in what has become a never-ending story.

Should people just get over it and move on? Or is Miranda right in standing up against abusive men, and the Grammys? Choose a side in this feud:

Chris Brown was apparently on hand at Rihanna's birthday party to see her receive a cake shaped like a topless likeness of herself riding a giant spliff.

Now they're rumored to be collaborating on a remix of her song "Birthday Cake."

Seriously. New reports have been flying that Chris Brown, of all people, is the mystery collaborator on a soon-to-drop remix of Rihanna's quick-hit song.

Surprising, and probably disappointing for some of her fans, but not as absurd a concept as it once seemed, given that they've grown close again.

"They can say whatever, Ima do whatever, No pain is forever," Rihanna tweeted Friday morning, quoting her hit song "Hard." "YUP! YOU KNOW THIS."

Cryptic. Or just catchy. That song was good.

Neither side is commenting about the rumored collaboration, but a full-length version of Rihanna's minute-long track (above) has long been in the works.

"It's gonna be crazy," producing team Da Internz told MTV News last week regarding the tune. "And the feature on there is gonna shock the world."

Could that mean what we think it means?
