Rihanna and Chris Brown have obviously been back together for several months (they’ve only been smugly rubbing our noses in their dysfunctional relationship this whole time) but there’s rumor afoot that the re-minted couple might be splitting up again, and that RiRi may have finally learned her lesson.
And before you ask: No, Chris Brown didn’t wallop Rihanna again. Turns out, he might just be a run-of-the-mill cheater in addition to a woman beater.
It all started with a report at Hollywood Life that Brown absconded to Paris on Rihanna’s watch with his ex, Karrueche Tran. Rihanna herself followed Brown to Paris earlier this week, and we can only imagine the awkwardness.
Still, a source insisted that Rihanna “ain’t tripping” over Brown keeping a “little side piece.” Then, RiRi reportedly tweeted: “Goodbye mutha[bleeper],” and “You give, you get, then you give it the [bleep] back. … Examine what you tolerate,” and later deleting the telling messages.
That “source” must have been a friend of Brown’s, hence the perfectly reasonable defense.
In any case, Rihanna returned to Los Angeles on Wednesday, reports MSN. On Thursday, she took to Twitter yet again to sound off on something completely vague and totally not related to her relationship problems with the man who beat her within an inch of her life back in 2009.
Never underestimate a man’s ability to make you feel guilty for his mistakes

Whatever went down in Paris, we’re guessing that Rihanna considers the reunion short-lived at this point. Still, the heart wants what the heart wants, and Brown has proven in the past that he thinks he deserves everything except the consequences he has seemingly avoided for his poor decisions. We’d love to say “it’s over,” but we’re skeptical.
Still, here’s hoping that Rihanna woke up Thursday morning and realized how dysfunctional and potentially dangerous her dalliance with Chris Brown really is before he had a chance to beat her face in again. Just remember how the abusers get back in, RiRi: Open lines of communication.
