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."

Why do we have to put up with Rihanna? Couldn't they find better talent to produce records with - she can't really sing, isn't really that attractive, and seems awfully stupid. I guess the reason is because she's willing to make such a vulgar display of herself all the time.

I thought she had more respect for herself than that? They deserve each other.

Now that you've all worked yourselves into a tizzy for the past three years--how do you feel now??? Mind your business and stop being passionate about someone else's situation. Some of you @ssholes invested so much time and energy on these two and they're just going to live their lives as they see fit, not giving two @hits what you think about them. Now, can you all go get yourselves a REAL life??

He should be locked up, she should be assessed for being mentally unstable. Both are messed up puppies. Absolutely no talent from what I see, yet people buy what they are selling. What does that tell us about society in general. This is what kids adhere to these days.

If he beat her that bad the last time, next time he will kill her.

I think Rihanna shot herself in the foot on that one. She turned him in and then made it impossible to continue with him without people thinking she was nuts. It backfired. I don't think it ever ended, just went underground.

Don't know I believe this "source" , it sounds like EVERY story I've heard elsewhere, using the same anonymous sources ( many months ago BTW). That being said, I hope their friends succeed because it's not a good idea for these two to reunite, IMO. It is their lives at the end of the day though so essentially my opinion doesn't matter in their lives.

They can't hold back their feelings like Chris Brown can't hold back his fists. These two chuckle heads deserve each other.

Love? The real love doesn't hurt... The real love care for the other person!
If she back to him... She is stupid! And... Should we tell her that we had told that a bull**** could happen again? 'Cause it will happen if they back!
