Chris Brown has been publicly thirsting after Rihanna for a long time, now. But apparently, that's just the tip of the iceberg.
A new report says that the widely disliked rapper "lurks" on RiRi's social media.
He's more than just thirsty -- he believes that they are destined to be together.
HollywoodLife reports that Chris Brown is still hung up on Rihanna.
According to the insider, Chris "still lurks on Rihanna’s social media and thinks her latest pics are sexy and hot."
The report singles out some very recent, tantalizing photos of the singer in metallic dresses, as seen above.
"He is still turned on by her after all these years," the source reports, as if it's some rare and special thing to be turned on by Rihanna.
"And," the insider adds, Chris "thinks she has only gotten more beautiful with age."
Well, say what you will about Chris Brown (and we will!), but the guy certainly has eyes and the ability to see.
"He has never stopped wanting her," the source shares.
"And," the insider reveals. "His attraction to her has gotten stronger since they have been apart."
"He has matured, grown, changed," the source hilariously claims.
We're sure that Chris himself believes that.
"And," the insider explains. "Doesn’t see why they can’t make it work when the time is right."
According to the source: "He would still love to make her Mrs. Rihanna Brown."
Well, as the saying goes, people in hell want icewater.
"Until then," the insider says. "He loves seeing her sexy pics on the ‘Gram and will keep one eye on her always."
We wonder how many of the people who famously scroll through their ex's photos secretly imagine that they're destined for each other.
Chris is far from the first dude to have trouble letting go of the past.
"Chris does still reach out to Rihanna," the source says. "But not as often as he used to."
"He shoots her a DM here and there," the insider reveals, saying that this happens "every few months."
Apparently he does this "just to stay connected and to let her know that he is thinking of her."
That sounds so ominous!
How would you feel if someone told you that a notorious man accused of both domestic violence and sexual assault is thinking about you?
"Chris is trying to be patient with things and holds on to faith that if their love is meant to be," the source shares. "Which he believes it is."
"Then one day," the insider expresses. "They will be together again."
We suppose that, technically, worse things have happened.
"Until then," the source claims. "He respects her space and waits."
The suggestion that Chris cares about other people's boundaries and feelings is ... almost funny.
Being turned on by Rihanna's photos doesn't mean that Chris is somehow destined to get back with her.
Everyone is turned on by her photos.
We are all horny Rihanna stans first and humans second.
Also, it's pretty normal to get hung up on your ex.
Maybe you grew apart but still miss them. Maybe the sex was great even though they themselves were not. They stick with you.
But people have an almost infinite capacity for self-deception.
Maybe Chris really believes that he and Rihanna are meant for each other.
It sounds like this inside source who spewed this Chris-friendly fanfiction feels the same way.
No good person wants to see Rihanna reunited with or even pursued by the man who pummeled her face in 2009.
We hope that Rihanna remains safe and happy.
