Chris Brown and Rihanna have in fact been hooking up on the sly again recently, but they aren't considering a full-fledged reconciliation, according to a new report.
"They've probably hooked up no more than half a dozen times in the past year. It's unlikely Rihanna and Chris would ever get back together though,” a source said.
“Rihanna doesn't care if she were to get public backlash if they were to reconcile," the insider adds. "But, she is the one calling the shots now, which she likes."
Therein lies her reluctance: "Rihanna knows that if they were to get back together, she wouldn't be able to maintain that strong role, and Chris would lose interest."
It has nothing to do with his infamous attack on her, in other words, but simply that "they are both very young, Rihanna likes being in control now, and would never be able to trust Chris because he has problems staying faithful."
Apparently. Sorry, Karrueche Tran.
Rumors have swirled about Rihanna and Chris Brown in recent weeks, and both stars are expected to be on hand when the Grammys are handed out February 12.
Brown is nominated for three Grammys: Best R & B Album, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song. Rihanna will perform with Coldplay at the show.
Plenty of people wish that Chris and Rihanna would give it another go, in spite of all that went on between them - Brown's mom Joyce Hawkins included!
"Joyce LOVES Rihanna, and she often calls her the daughter that she never had but always wanted," the insider claims. "Joyce would love for Chris and Rihanna to continue to spend time together, and maybe down the line, get back together.”
What do you think? Should Ri and Chris give it a go?
