Rihanna and Chris Brown have been one of the most controversial couples in show business, but new reports indicate that the troubled pair could be ready to give their relationship another go.
This weekend the pair crossed paths at the 2015 BET Awards, where Chris Brown performed. Their meeting took place behind the scenes, with Rihanna reportedly stopping by to watch Chris rehearse his performance.
A witness said the pair appeared to be on very good terms and shared some kind words.
The source told Hollywood Life:
“Chris knew Ri and Karrueche and were both going to be at the show. It made him a bit nervous and that’s why he didn’t do much press. He didn’t want to be bombarded with questions about either of them. His mind was solely focused on his performances and he didn’t want anything distracting him from that. But when Ri came and to see part of his rehearsal, he was like what? Is this really happening? He played it cool, told her she looked beautiful as always and was surprised and humbled by her words. That made his day, truthfully, and he’s very appreciative of that.”
Rihanna wasn’t the only one of Chris Brown’s former lovers in attendance. Karrueche Tran was there as well, but unlike Rihanna she was avoided by Brown, and returned the favor to him.
A source told Hollywood Life that Chris and Karrueche were never a good fit.
“He’s completely fragile and that’s all right. He’s got a soft side of him that only few people see,” the source claimed. “He needs that all around woman that’s going to love him, honor him and at the same time call him out on his shit to make him a better man. He might not be ready for that just yet – but that’s exactly what he needs. And he knows it.”
But while there is clearly not a future for Chris and Karreuche, there is growing speculation that he and Rihanna could be giving their relationship another chance. Though they’ve now been split for the last two years, they appear to still have a strong connection and Rihanna reportedly even called out Karreuche Tran after she went after Chris on Instagram.
There is still some question whether the relationship rumors could be true. Rihanna and Chris Brown have still not gone public with a relationship, and still haven’t been seen together outside of the BET Awards.
