Chris Brown and Rihanna may have gone their separate ways after calling it quits in 2013, but are the former couple’s friends trying to encourage the duo to get back together?
While Rihanna and Brown continue to make headlines regarding their rumored rekindled relationship, a source close to Rih reveals that there’s no truth to the romance rumors.
However, the insider reveals that Chris Brown’s close friends have been reaching out to Rihanna in the hopes of getting her to reconsider the possibility of rekindling her relationship with Brown now that he’s split from Karrueche Tran.
“His friends are trying to make the case for him and it’s not like RiRi don’t love him anymore, she stil does, but she is much more mature and focused now and will not settle for anything that is not serious and fully committed,” sources close to Rihanna reveal to Urban Islandz.
The source also notes that there’s little chance for a Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran reunion in the near future, explaining that Brown’s friends are keenly focused on getting Rihanna and Brown to reunite.
“They are pretty much saying what we all already know that he loves RiRi a lot more than his other old girl, but love won’t cut it, he will have to be patient and change a lot of stuff about his lifestyle,” the source further explains.
“His friends are pushing him to go get your girl before someone else does,” the Rihanna insider concludes.
While Chris Brown’s friends may be hoping for a Rihanna reunion in the near future, the Barbadian songstress continues to heat up dating rumors with Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton.
Sources close to Rihanna reveal to British magazine Heat that Rihanna and Hamilton are taking things slow in their budding relationship.
“Ri and Lewis have known each other casually for years, but they’ve never both been single at the same time. She’s playing it cool, but I think he’s winning her over. Lewis is being really good with her brother, Rajad, and that’s the kind of thing Rihanna really likes.”
Similarly, Rihanna’s close family friend, Sharon Bellamy-Thompson, reveals to the site that Rih and Lewis make a great couple.
“They would have beautiful babies. As long as this man makes her happy, he’s got my approval. You’ve got to love his British charm,” Thompson explains before adding, “When the time’s right Robyn will make a great mum—she loves kids.”
While Thompson is approving of Rihanna’s relationship with Lewis Hamilton, she admits that she hopes Rihanna and Chris Brown find a way to rekindle their relationship in the future.
“Chris was the first boyfriend she brought home and I’ll always have a soft spot for him. Nobody can replace first love,” she explains.
