Ugh, I just don’t know what to think of this story. Yesterday, Kaiser brought us the comparatively blissful news of Rihanna’s blunt-filled Hawaiin vacation, which seems so peaceful that I’m using more of those photos. However, danger may be lurking just around the corner (figuratively) in the form of Chris Brown, who does have a confirmed girlfriend who would ideally prevent his story from being true. However, Kaiser reminded me that Chris was allegedly hooking up with Kelly Rowland while on tour last year, so maybe that establishes a pattern of cheating that would mean he’d have no problems with casual hookups with someone else too . . . such as Rihanna. Of course, RiRi herself has already admitted that she still admires Chris even though he beat her senseless.
Until now, I’ve always maintained that Rihanna would never actually go back to Chris for the simple reason that her handlers won’t let them get close because of publicity reasons. A true reunion would be awful for her career, but does that leave out the possibility of occasional hookups? Us Weekly seems to believe that this has been the case for the past year:
February 8 marks the three-year anniversary of Chris Brown’s infamous assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
And it turns out that the exes — forcibly separated after the beating by court order — could very well be spending that “anniversary” together. As multiple sources confirm in the new Us Weekly, Rihanna, 23, and Brown, 22, have secretly been hooking up for nearly a year.
The edgy, platinum-selling “We Found Love” singer and Brown “meet up very casually,” a Brown confidante says. “She comes to see him anytime she’s in L.A.”
Explains a music industry source: “They can’t get enough of each other. I don’t see it ending well.”
“Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that,” adds a Rihanna insider.
The clandestine relationship isn’t just complicated because of the couple’s violent past; the “Forever” crooner also has a girlfriend, aspiring model Karrueche Tran.
“He and Rihanna are just friends,” Brown’s rep tells Us. “He’s not cheating.” Rihanna’s rep had no comment.

At this point, I am starting to believe that Rihanna isn’t above hooking up with her abusive ex for a thrill, but I hope she truly isn’t that stupid. Maybe she really is lured by the cycle of violence and misinterprets it as “exciting.” Hopefully, this is merely baseless gossip on a slow news day though. While in Hawaii, Rihanna’s been tweeting about her hot chef. She should hook up with him instead.
