Rihanna's relationship with Chris Brown continues to make headlines thanks to the former's own activity on social media. "Nobody's Business" or everyone's?

On Saturday, she shared an Instagram photo of her "lover" lying shirtless in bed. Brown's many tattoos and Bart Simpson jacket are clearly visible.

The two have spent a lot of time together recently, in and out of bed. She boarded a private plane to jet to Berlin, Germany, for Brown's Thursday concert.

"All alone in my big ole jet!!! See u soon lover," she tweeted en route to the European city, where she spent Thanksgiving with her "lover" and went clubbing.

Rihanna claims in a new interview that she is "not together" with former boyfriend and "Nobodies Business" collaborator Chris Brown, despite reports to the contrary.

The pop star was speaking to Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live when he asked outright if they were dating. She said simply: "No. Not together."

Of course, as T-Boz notes, that doesn't mean she's not ... forget it.

Rihanna wouldn't divulge many details, but did address the issue indirectly by talking about the controversial duet with Brown on her new album Unapologetic.

Chris Brown and Rihanna are totally together nowadays.

At least in public, as "friends." No denying, or hiding it.

Saturday, the once-and-future couple partied in L.A., celebrating the launch of Chris' Qubeey (dot) com, which allows his fans access to news, music, videos and photos.

One such video? This one, of CB and RiRi hanging out:

Here we go again.

Whether she's ready for a full-on reconciliation with her ex or just having some fun at the club is anyone's guess, but Rihanna kissed Chris Brown this weekend.

Not like their VMA kiss either. We're talking makeout session here.

Just a week after his alleged hookup with Nicole Scherzinger, Chris Brown and Rihanna got hot and heavy at NYC hotspot Griffin. The two arrived separately, E! reports.

"She knew he was there," a source says of Rihanna, who showed up after Chris.

Rihanna has been linked to every random athlete, musician and model under the sun, but this latest romance rumor may actually have some juice.

She and Drake, who were linked romantically back in 2009 after her break-up from Chris Brown, were both spotted at Miami hotspot Liv Sunday night.

Not only that, they were getting "hot and heavy."

Rihanna and Drake Perform

"Rihanna was all over Drake this weekend," an onlooker at the club said. "They were holding hands and dancing all close on the dance floor."

The two have notably collaborated on each other's albums, with Rih most recently appearing on the title track of Drake's new album, Take Care.

In 2010, Rihanna, 23, admitted to Hot 97's Angie Martinez that her rumored romance with Drake was real, even if it wasn't particularly serious.

"We weren't really sure what it was," the singer said. "I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is, or like what it was."

"We didn't want to take it any further. It was a really fragile time in my life, so I just didn't want to get too serious with anything or anyone."

As for right now? A source close to the Battleship star denies that the Barbados-born beauty is dating Drake, or anyone else for that matter.

Move over, Darren McFadden. According to reports, Rihanna is turning her attention over to another random athlete in the New York Knicks' J.R. Smith.

Sources tell In Touch that the two are a thing. A fake thing, probably, but good enough for 2-3 hours of celebrity gossip before she denies it on Twitter.

The two were spotted, allegedly, getting cozy at Veranda nightclub in NYC.

“They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands,” an eyewitness tells the magazine. “She was sitting on his lap and was really into him.”

Rihanna and JR

How serious is it? Not very. But those who know the wild child say she's attracted to bad boys like J.R., who's no stranger to raising eyebrows himself.

J.R. Smith, 26, made headlines in March when he was fined $25,000 by the NBA after tweeting a pic of a woman’s ass in a thong from his bed. Classy.

“He is the team’s most controversial player, so it’s no wonder that Rihanna likes him,” says a source. In the past, the singer has said of her "type":

“I definitely like high-risk guys. I don’t like cream puff, corny guys… the nice ones that won’t hurt you. I like the edge. That’s the thrill for me.”

Insert obvious Chris Brown comment here.

Are Rihanna and Darren McFadden of the NFL's Oakland Raiders dating?

The singer made no secret of their connection during a late-April trip to Honolulu, Hawaii, during which she also promoted her film, Battleship.

The question is whether it's a real relationship or just a typical fling.

In any case, it sounds like the two hit it off quite nicely there.

“Rihanna rushed into the ocean, but Darren had to be coaxed,” an onlooker reveals. “She kept calling his name, and at one point, she discreetly flashed him. That did the trick."

"He ran into the water, and they started kissing.”

While they’ve only been "dating" a few weeks, the couple was spotted holding hands in the lobby of their hotel, The Kahala Hotel & Resort.

Later, they were dancing at a club and cuddling in a lounge chair.

But a source also added that there could be other motivations ... like getting inside Chris Brown's head: “She’s using Darren to make him jealous.”

On May 2, she made a point of wearing a Raiders shirt to a strip club, then she tweeted numerous pictures in the hopes that Chris would see.

Maybe she just likes silver and black attire?

Is Rihanna dating someone new? And is that someone a woman?

"I'm on my first date in almost 2 yearz," the star tweeted late last night, prior to revealing that date was with ... Melissa Forde. And holding hands with her outside Malibu's Giorgio Baldi before hitting up Hollywood's famed Roxbury nightclub.

The 24-year-old, who clearly does not give a f--k what anyone thinks, kept Tweeting hints that her relationship with Forde is romantic in nature.

Rihanna and Melissa Forde

"Beautiful is great, submissive is even better. Bawse b***h who's submissive yet the captain of the ship n HONEST...#priceless #marryME," she wrote.

"But she bad... So maybe she won't.... But s**t, then again maybe she will."

The singer was having a good time, uploading photos to her social media account of her table at the club covered in bottles of booze ... standard.

Perhaps the most surprising Tweet? Rihanna posted a photo of herself and Melissa Forde with the caption, "#datenight my lover for the night."

Her background is still very much unclear, but she and Rih reportedly have matching tattoos that read, "never a failure, always a lesson.”

So yeah, there's that. Also, if it's been really "2 yearz," apparently hooking up with Ashton Kutcher and/or Chris Brown do not count as "dating."

What do you think of this situation? Is Rihanna changing teams on us? And would you blame her if she did? Share your comments below.

Take this with a grain of salt, because the source has been less than reliable lately, but a new report in Us Weekly claims Rihanna and Chris Brown are hooking up!

With February 8 marking the three-year anniversary of Chris' infamous assault of his then-girlfriend, relations between the two have definitely thawed since.

They've been exchanging not-so-secret Tweets and rumors suggest that Rihanna may really want him back. But Us takes it a step further with this claim:

Rihanna and Brown are secretly hooking up - and have been for some time!

Chris Brown, Rihanna

The edgy, platinum-selling "We Found Love" singer and Brown "meet up very casually," a Brown confidante says. "She comes to see him anytime she's in L.A."

"They can't get enough of each other. I don't see it ending well. Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that."

Somehow we're not buying it.

Chris lays low for the most part, but Rihanna is photographed EVERYWHERE she goes and is enormously busy to boot. It would be pretty hard to pull that off.

Chris is also dating Karrueche Tran. Details. "He and Rihanna are just friends," Brown's rep says. "He's not cheating." Ri's rep, meanwhile, had no comment.

Regardless of this report ... SHOULD they get back together?

Dudley O'Shaughnessy says he's too busy to date Rihanna.

It appears Matt Kemp does not have that same problem.

The Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder, who dated Rihanna for all of 2010, reunited with the singer for a night out on the town Wednesday in London.

Might there be a romantic reconciliation in the works?

Matt Kemp and Rihanna in Los Angeles last year.

Spotted leaving Stringfellows Nightclub around 2 a.m., the singer - on a break from her Loud tour - sported plum lipstick and a curly 'do to party with her ex.

It's unclear what the future holds, but they did not part on bad terms.

"She's a good friend of mine," Kemp said after they broke up this winter. "We're good. We've got busy lives and we're concentrating on our careers. Like I said, I wish her all the best of luck and she wishes me all the best of luck."

Unfortunately for Matt, his luck improved after they split. His three-year stats, with 2010 being the season in which he and Rihanna dated, are telling:

2009: .297 BA, 107 R, 26 HR, 34 SB
2010: .249 BA, 82 R, 28 HR, 13 SB
2011: .324 BA, 115 R, 39 HR, 40 SB
