Rihanna & Chris Brown

Friends SCRAMBLING

To Stop Blossoming Relationship

2/23/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown and Rihanna are dangerously close to getting back together.
Chris Brown and Rihanna are dangerously close to getting back together, sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ -- but the singers' friends are desperately trying to keep them apart ... for their own good.

According to sources, Rihanna is still head over heels for Chris -- despite that fateful night 3 years ago when he brutalized her -- and if it weren't for the media and her fans, she would already have taken him back.

We're told Chris also has extremely strong feelings for Rihanna -- current girlfriend be damned.

Now, sources tell us, Rihanna and Chris' friends are terrified they'll get back together -- and they're doing everything they can to prevent a possible reunion.

According to sources, friends on BOTH sides have expressed extremely strong reservations to Ri and CB about spending so much time together ... warning it's a terrible idea ... personally AND professionally.

But with Rihanna's birthday ... Chris and Rihanna's duets released this week ... friends fear they're fighting an uphill battle.

As one source put it, "You can't hold back love."

The man's an idiot who makes pop music aimed at idiots, who gets butthurt with the slightest criticism, has an ego made of glass, throws tantrums and is about as original as domestic violence. I wish Rihanna the best of luck.

The sad thing is even if these two losers do get back together they'll still have loser fans. Sad for humanity.

In the immortal words of Tina Turner "What's love got to do with it?" Rihanna should talk to Tina. Chris B. beats up women 'cause his Mamma beat up on him. Violence begets violence. A leopard doesn't change his spots ...

I hope Rihanna realizes it's not love, but lust, infatuation and obsession.

They know that there Careers have come to a hault and it's time to move on.
They have been talking about combining income together and open up a chicken joint and move to compton in a small one bedroom apartment to save money.

While RI is cooking chicken and running the joint CH will be running around the city collecting scrap metal and cans.

"How you like your chicken? OH! Chris Brown and give some of that Rihanna and rice too".

People! Shut up with this already. I am tired of the Chris is so bad comments. I am tired of the Rihanna is so perfect comments. Three years ago Chris Brown was a 19 year old! You people are trying to bash someone who made a mistake as a child! Then you bash Ri Ri for forgiving him. Aren't people suppose to forgive, just not forget. You nor I were there. You nor I know which parts of these articles are true. This is turning into the Jay and Bey phenomenon. "Good or bad, as long as their talking, we're making money!" And the idiot who posted the so called police report, did you go to the station and get that? I have seen 4 different renditions of that report in the past 4 days. Ok, the incident happened. Either enjoy the music and the show or go read about artist you like. For the rest of the idiots that say that he is not on top, please look at the album sales. Please note that top celebrities want to work with him. Please look at his overseas market. The U.S. does not support its own artists like the overseas market does. And TMZ, why are you and other media sites constantly reminding people of what he did in each article? You guys post stories that you find are wrong all the time, but at the expense of hurting someones career. Causing them to lose money to provide for their families! Should everyone start going on a tangent about this site and try to shut it down? Report the story, fine, but stop embellishing upon the past. ARGH!

news flash: friends aren't going to stop this from happening. 90% of woman that have been abused take the cad back at least one more time before he abuses her again and then she grows up and finally realizes what an ass he is. she has to be dumber then a box of rocks, since she probably could get any guy she wants. It's not love robyn, it's lust and you are really doing a huge dis-service to young ladies being abused by boyfriends. Your basically saying to forgive the bloodied, black eyed face that the monster gave you.

Rhianna is getting a new tattoo in honor of her re-emerging feelings and relationship for/with Chris.
It's a target on her left cheek.
That way he only needs to take one hand off the wheel in the future.

My friend was in an abusive relationship. We all tried to tell her he was bad for her and to leave him. She really believed that she was in love and secretly married him. My dear friend was 20 when she lost her life to her husband. He shot her with his own shotgun. Her husband was in the military and they tried to cover it up by saying it was accidental. We knew it wasn't an accident but he was found guilty of murder and only getting 8 months in jail and a dishonorable discharge. It saddens me because he has no remorse for what he did and he still is putting my friend's parents through hell. Now I know my friend is no Rihanna, but for people to say " it was three years ago get over it". Wake up! Chris Brown is an abuser! I personally feel he feels he did nothing wrong and he didn't change. He still have these violent outburst on twitter and then deletes his tweets? Just a year ago, the man threw a chair at the window! He needs to get off twitter and get some serious help. Rihanna, if I were you move on with your life!

They're testing the boundaries. But it's not MY life to live. Just wish they'd open up some DV shelters or something. They could explore this crazy relationship and help themselves and others get educated about how one is addicted to a relationship's good times enough to put up with the bad times. Que sera sera. Whatever will b will b.

I've seen alot of stupid things in 12 years of repos, but god damned this is just retarded!!! First rule of relationships: getting BACK with your ex to "try again" NEVER WORKS!!! I've never seen it work, never heard of stories where it works, there's a reason you LEFT him in the first place!!! Second rule: If your spouse hits you, much less beats you into a shadow of yourself, if you go back to him you're just stupid.

I've never liked Rihanna, I heard one or two songs when she was JUST coming into music and thought it was interesting, then the whole Chris Brown thing happened and she's all like "but I still looooovveeee him" stupid battered partner syndrome. Chris Brown is just an arrogant twit who thinks life OWES him something. Rihanna is just a shock crazy star, doing everything she can for attention, both of them need psychiatric evaluation because to "try again" after the relationship bombed, not just failed but friggin BOMBED, then there are some serious mental health isseus that need to be looked into..........

@Rey; dude you're an idiot..... "3 years ago he was 19!!!!" What that makes him a kid at 19, and a full man at 22?? Really??? You do realize that brain growth continues until nearly 30 right? Rihanna ain't a princess and Chris might not be the devil, but dammit they are stupid if they think this could work. People's mentality does not change just because they age, or have you never met a 45 year old boy in a man's body? (Which would constitute probably 40% of the US males) What I'm sick of hearing about it women who "think" they are in love and have no earthly idea what true love really is, and then when someone who knows tells them, they say "No no THIS is real love!!" Yea the black and blue face and welts tells me "True Love!!" Give me a break, and get a clue. Once a cheater always a cheaters, once an abuser always an abuser. It takes years, YEARS of mental health help to get over the basic instincts that drive those behaviors. Take a course in psychology and learn a thing or two about obsessive/addictive behaviors and maybe check into the different sets of conditioning the mind to understand WHY it is this way............
