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."

Who gives a rats ass. If she wants the crap beat out of her then she gets what she wants. NO WOMAN DESERVES TO BE BEAT ON. But if that is what she wants give it to her. I don't care. They deserve each other. And no he shouldn't go to jail for cracking her head open next time. She wanted it.

She loves bad boy, her daddy is a rich man on the music bizness who gave her a carreer, she struggled zero.
She wants more hit on the face, she likes it, I mean it did not hurt enough.
A beautiful exemple to young women, way to go riri !
Being a public person I was stupid enough to think you had some responsabilities, but you gave none, just take the hot money and have all the privileges.

Why the hell would she even consider being back together with him. I know that no one can control what she does but we can still give opinions. I don't care if it was 3 years ago when it happened, he still beat the **** out of her, and there are pictures of what happened, and getting back with someone that beat you up is sick, why would you put yourself in that situation again? Don't be with a guy that thinks it is okay to put his hands on a women. What he did is not okay and it will never be okay, and she should not ever want to be back with someone that did that to her. she might think she loves him and all of that but is it worth it to deal with someone like that, he could hit her again you never know. She also did a interview months after it happened, saying that she doesnt care what he has to say that she will never talk to him again. Also she was telling girls to stand up for themselves and not let that happen, do not let a man put your hands on you. I think that her getting back together with him is a mistake, I would never forgive someone for doing that to me. If he really loves her, he will not beat the **** out of her like he did 3 years ago.

I believe he wants to lure her back to show people he's in control of her and to USE HER to repair his image. It is and always will be about HIM. He may take her down, just like Bobby did Whitney. To Ri - love cannot fix what's wrong with Chris. Walk away, close the door, make a happy, healthy life for yourself with someone who enhances your life, your spirit. Someone who respects and loves you for the special lady you are. When a man loves you, he does not hit or disrespect you, he does not play you - EVER. See a good shrink to help you address your low self-esteem and relationship issues and again, stay as far away from Chris as possible. Some people are toxic and use a very charming full court press to impress ladies with carefully planned scenarios, words and actions - that's the way predators and control freaks work. BEWARE. He will never change, you cannot help him. YOU are his prey not his redemption.

If this were a real love relationship, there wouldn't be the evil violent disrespect shown by Chris or the submissive passive acceptance of it shown by Rihanna. This sounds like a codependent relationship, where Chris is addictd to misogyny and domestic abuse while Rihanna supports it with her own head and blood.


I think maybe the music industry is pushing them together to make Rihanna the next sacrifice of a young maiden to the demons of money and power. Does she just want to allow herself to be killed instead of getting her head together and seeing a way past this evil relationship?


If he were to completely change she might consider it but he has not seemed to change at all. This is jumping right back into the fire that almost killed her once before. She is still able to sing and still looks nice, maybe next time she will be blinded or damaged so bad that she won't even have her career left.


I feel like she is being set up. She is too nice and passive. She needs to step up herself and assert her right to be treated as a human and not a slaughter animal. Maybe she should study martial arts as a precaution, but even then, I don't trust Chris Brown.
