Rihanna and Chris Brown are reportedly giving their relationship yet another chance, with the R&B singer giving a big hint during a recent television appearance.
Sources say that the two have remained in close contact in recent years, even while dating other people. They have rekindled their relationship a few times over the course of the past few years, and sources say they are close to doing it again.
“Rihanna and Chris never stopped talking,” a source told MediaTakeOut. “They were supposedly ‘just friends’ but they would always flirt. There is a real ‘soul mate’ connection between them.”
The outlet noted that Rihanna and Chris Brown may be more than just friends again. On Friday, Chris performed on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and was seen wearing a chain that matched one worn by Rihanna.
The two famously split in 2009 after Brown was arrested for attacking her, leaving her bruised and bloodied.
But sources say their relationship is as deep as it is complicated.
“They have a bond and connection that’s so deep that no one can fully understand except them. That’s just a fact. He knows it. She knows it. Everybody knows it and that’s that. When it comes to Rihanna, you know, her name and his name will forever be intertwined, no matter who she’s talking to at any given moment,” a source told Hollywood Life.
It appears that their messy past is still affecting Chris Brown and Rihanna. As the two are on the verge of dating again, the 2009 domestic violence incident still affects their careers. Last week, the NFL dumped Rihanna as part of the Thursday Night Football pregame show after Ray Rice’s domestic violence controversy, and Chris Brown still faces questions about the incident. In a recent interview, he said there was a “purpose” to the incident, one that taught him to better control himself.
