Joyce Hawkins, Chris Brown's mom, took to Twitter right after Rihanna's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey and posted a series of cryptic messages.

Fans suspect they may have been directed at Hawkins' son's ex-girlfriend, especially after Rihanna spoke extensively about their relationship on OWN.

Fighting tears, Rihanna admitted Sunday that Chris is the "love of my life", that he was her "best friend", that they still love each other and are very close.

Hawkins, who has reportedly remained close to the singer since her relationship with Brown ended in 2009, then posted this series of messages:

  • "TELL THE TRUTH AND SET YOURSELF FREE"
  • "NOT UNTIL YOU TELL THE TRUTH WILL YOU EVER BE FREE!!!!!! PEACE SOMETIMES COMES WITH A PRICE"
  • "DID YOU SAY SOMETHING? DID IT HELP ANYONE?"

Only Joyce knows for sure what she meant and who those Tweets were directed toward, but the timing couldn't have been a coincidence, right?

Some have speculated that Joyce wanted Rihanna to tell the truth - that reports of a rekindled romance may actually be true. What do you think?

Should Chris and Rihanna get back together?

Rihanna still harbors feelings for Chris Brown, and strong feelings at that.HOT Chris Brown, Rihanna Picture

Appearing last night on Oprah's Next Chapter, Rihanna was asked about the status of her relationship with Chris today, and she did not hold back.

More than three years after his brutal attack on her, she says the couple has worked on things ever since his restraining order was dropped.

Rihanna explained to O, "We're very, very close friends. We built a trust again and that's it. We love each other and we probably always will."

The Barbados native admitted that her feelings toward him were so strong, she was more concerned for Chris than for herself after he beat her.

She says they are NOT together - she mentions he is in a relationship (with Karrueche Tran) - but that it's "awkward" when she sees Chris.

Because "I still love him," she adds, "my stomach drops ... I have to maintain this poker face and understand that it's not going to go away."

Asked by Winfrey whether she believes Chris, who the star describes as her best friend, was a true love for her, Rihanna didn't hesitate.

"Absolutely," she said. "I think he was the love of my life."

Rihanna and Chris Brown: Should they date again?

In her much-anticipated sit-down with Oprah, Rihanna was asked some tough questions about Chris Brown, and answered them all with tearful honesty.

Chris brutally assaulted his then-girlfriend in February 2009 after a huge argument, an altercation that injured her deeply in ways both physical and mental.

Still, she said what she felt most was sympathy towards him.

"It was a weird, confusing space to be in," Rihanna recalled.

"As angry as I was ... as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help. And like who's gonna help him? Nobody is gonna say he needs help. Everybody's gonna say he's a monster without looking at the source."

"And I was more concerned about him."

Rihanna tearfully told Oprah "I lost my best friend" when Brown attacked her, adding that "everything I knew switched in a night."

Breezy and Drizzy on the same team ... who would've guessed.

Both have been named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by the owners of the now-closed W.I.P. nightclub, where the infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight broke out.

Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which owns WiP, says both "shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman." 

Cough ... RIHANNA!

EEL claims in the suit that when Drake and Brown crossed paths that night, the stars and their entourages "began to fight violently with each other."

"Each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, 'security' personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage consisting of 'at least 15' heavily built, trained men, experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat."

The rivals' crews both "fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture."

The suit comes after numerous injured parties - NBA star Tony Parker among them - sued the club for its role in not preventing the melee.

Chris and Drake are being asked for $15 million in damages.

Oprah Winfrey may be slipping these days and growing a tad desperate for ratings, but the media mogul is still not afraid to ask tough questions.

Rihanna may often cast herself as edgy and hard, but when relaxed and on her home turf (Barbados), she's not afraid to answer them, candidly.

When asked about the end of her relationship with Chris Brown for Oprah's Next Chapter, Rihanna teared up. "It was embarrassing," she said.

"It was humiliating. I lost my best friend."

Oprah and Rihanna

"I was resentful. I held a grudge," Rihanna admitted. "I was dark."

Rihanna and Chris Brown have since reconciled, both personally and professionally; the two stars even collaborated on two remixes in early 2012.

Winfrey admitted she was surprised by Rihanna's non-badass nature. "She was thoughtful. She was very emotional. She was vulnerable," she said.

At the same time, "she pushes the edge a lot," as we've seen in her decision to record with Chris again despite his brutal attack on her in 2009.

Rumors persist that the former lovers will get back together again romantically. While that's just speculation, she doesn't shy away from feeding it.

What do you think? Should Rihanna and Chris date again?

Say what you will about Karrueche Tran … we have no witty conclusion to this sentence, but the "aspiring model" is now modeling boyfriend Chris Brown's clothing line.

Tran poses in a couple of Mechanical Dummy outfits in the pics below:

While many ladies out there would love to be in Chris Brown's pants (for reasons that defy self-respect and human logic), only Karrueche can say that she is … LITERALLY!

CB posted these images on Twitter, hoping for some fan reactions and free publicity (you are welcome), before the Mechanical Dummy designs are officially released.

What do you think? Does Chris Brown have any talent for fashion design? It appears safe to say he and Karrueche Tran are going strong regardless.

Tell us: Would you buy anything from Mechanical Dummy?

Chris Brown and Frank Ocean have traded Twitter barbs before, and the former has been accused of making gay slurs in the past, so a report attributing one to Brown regarding Ocean coming out came as no surprise.

But it's not true, the singer says.

"My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS," Brown tweeted Monday.

The "BS" he's referring to is a celebrity gossip report in France that claims he responded "Man, no homo," when asked about Frank Ocean coming out.

Apparently this is something one says in the hip-hop world when, after giving props to another guy, a guy makes clear there was no sexual connotation.

While the phrase is a debate in and of itself, and Brown's list of controversial actions and comments remains lengthy, he insists there was no ill will here.

Ocean, who counts 50 Cent, Beyonce and Russell Simmons among his supporters, even if Target won't sell his album, hasn't commented on Brown.

Did they or didn't they? That's the question concerning Rihanna and Chris Brown this week.

Days after the latter singer's rep shot down reports of this former couple reuniting on a yacht in St. Tropez, an insider tells Us Weekly that the pair DID, indeed, get together.

  • Rihanna in France
  • Sweaty Chris Brown

As Twitter photos have depicted, Rihanna and friends have been shopping and sunning in St. Tropez for awhile now and this source tells the tabloid she "changed her plans" last Friday night after hearing Brown was on his way to the area.

She allegedly called her ex from a satellite phone and arranged to meet him on his ridiculous mode of transportation: a yacht with a submarine, pool and two helicopter landings, which Brown is renting (for $400,000/week) along with Swizz Beatz and Ludacris for a music video shoot.

"Rihanna went and partied hard with the guys on their yacht," the mole claims.

Brown's current squeeze, Karrueche Tran, was also on board the vehicle, according to this source, and may not even have been aware that Rihanna was around. We'd doubt the validity of that report, but did you read the description of the yacht?!?

It's not small.

There is nothing there.

That's the word today from a Chris Brown representative, who has been forced to come out and officially shoot down talk that this singer is spending time with Rihanna in Cannes at the moment. Reports have even said both partied it up on Magic Johnson's yacht.

  • Rihanna in England

Rumors of the pair at least hanging out together first cropped up because each has been spotted in France over the past couple days.

But Rihanna is in the area on vacation, while Brown is there for work and is even accompanied by girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

"People are trying to connect them," Brown's rep tells E! News. "Chris is there to shoot a video for Swizz Beatz and with Luda."

Of course, this isn't the first time buzz has circulated around Brown and Rihanna secretly hooking up. It likely won't be the last time, either.

Rihanna is a girl who makes no apologies for anything, least of all her recent collaboration with Chris Brown, who she calls "dirty" in the best possible way.

In a the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar (see the Rihanna Harper's Bazaar cover here), she discusses teaming up with her ex on her song “Birthday Cake.”

“I thought it would be cute to do it with a guy. I wondered, who can be dirty, someone who people will really believe?” she says of Chris' tag-team effort.

She adds that she wanted a guy "who could be shocking."

Even though she and Brown split up after he beat her badly in 2009, the two have made peace since; rumors that they're dating again are commonplace.

There was also the Chris Brown-Drake fight over her, but that's another story. As far as the song goes, Rih stands by it, saying it's all about the music.

“Music is music and my fans have been asking me to record with him,” she said, though many fans objected. “I just felt like it was time. It was time.”

“Look, I understand that people had every right to be concerned about it,” she explains. “But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”

She proudly points out that the song hit #2 on the charts even though it wasn’t sold on iTunes, and says she wouldn't rule out future collaborations.

What do you think of Rihanna and Chris collaborating?

 

Should they get back together as a couple?
