Chris Brown and Rihanna are clearly infatuated with one another, but also seem to be toxic when they're actually together. It's a vicious cycle.
Clearly, emotion isn’t enough to keep them together. In fact, it may be the reason why these on-off lovers cannot seem to make a romance work.
“They went through a lifetime together and they’re only in their 20s,” a source close to the pair says. “They’ve had lots of ups and then a HUGE down."
"Sometimes Chris can’t even look at her because it reminds him of the $h!t he did years ago. Even though she forgave him, the world hasn’t."
"That’s the $h!t that’s f*%ked up. It still distracts him from his music and his life. It’s always in his face and it’s something he just can’t shake.”
