Chris Brown is allegedly looking to win back Rihanna’s heart amid reports that she’s now officially split with Drake.
According to new claims made by Hollywood Life, Rihanna and Chris have allegedly been in contact to check in with each other in recent months, which has the “Forever” singer believing that he and Rihanna could potentially get back together now that she’s single again.
“Chris calls Rihanna from time to time to check in,” an insider alleged to the site of Brown and Rihanna’s relationship post-breakup after they seemingly split for good after a six-year on/off romance back in 2013, but claimed that while Brown is allegedly ready to get back together with Rihanna, she’s pretty reluctant to ever reunite with her ex.
“[Brown] likes to think that he could still get her back,” the Chris insider continued, “but Rihanna is finished with him romantically.”
Rihanna never officially confirmed that she was dating Drake, despite the couple seemingly going public as a couple at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards in August, but the insider claimed that her failed romance with the rapper is one of the reasons Rihanna is supposedly not looking to get into another serious relationship anytime soon.
“[Rihanna] had real hopes for her relationship with Drake and is bummed out that things didn’t work,” the site’s source confirmed amid rumors Brown is hoping to get back together.
Reports suggesting that Chris is looking for a reconciliation come just days after Rihanna appeared to put Brown and her other exes on blast on social media, slamming her former boyfriends with a meme posted to Instagram on October 9.
“None of my exes are married or in happy relationships,” Rihanna’s post read, seemingly taking aim at Chris and potentially Drake amid reports the singer is looking to reconcile. “So it’s safe to say that I wasn’t da problem lol.”
While Rihanna didn’t explicitly reference Chris Brown in the social media post, fans were quick to accuse the singer of taking aim at Brown just days before Hollywood Life first reported that the singer feels it’s “just a matter of time” before he and Rihanna get back together and officially reconcile.
“Chris could say the same thing about Rihanna and it be true,” a source told Hollywood Life of Brown’s reaction to Rihanna’s pretty scathing Instagram post just days before her breakup with Drake was confirmed by E! News. “She ain’t married and he doesn’t think her relationship with Drake will last.”
The site then went on to add that “Chris knows he’s still on Rihanna’s mind” and confirmed that Brown “still loves her dearly,” despite his 2009 arrest for domestic violence against the singer that caused Brown and the “Diamonds” singer to split before a brief reconcile.
Chris has not officially confirmed that he’s looking to get back together with the “This Is What You Came For” singer before or after her split from Drake, though rumors have been swirling that Brown may want to reconcile with his former girlfriend for months now, hitting fever pitch while Rihanna and the rapper were still dating.
Hollywood Life reported back in July that Chris still believes that Rihanna is his “soulmate” and isn’t convinced that she’ll ever get serious and settle down with any man who isn’t him.
“Chris doesn’t believe for a second that his soulmate would tie the knot with her long-term side piece,” a Brown source claimed after it was rumored that Rihanna’s romance with Drake was getting pretty serious earlier this year.
Rumors also swirled that Chris was so determined to win Rihanna back that he was locked in a nasty feud with Drake while the two were dating, seemingly slamming each other on Instagram while praising Lil Wayne earlier this year.
But while fans accused the Brown and Drake of a feud, Chris shot down the reports, hitting back on Instagram by confirming that didn’t have drama with Rihanna’s now former boyfriend despite the rumors he was looking to get back together with the pop star.
“Y’all comments be funny,” Chris wrote on Instagram after fans accused him of coyly slamming Drake in a previous post on the site, adding that those alluding to a feud between the two musicians over Rihanna were actually “making an issue outta nothing.”
“Everybody know I don’t have any issues @ing someone I had an issue with,” Brown continued on the site according to a screen capture captured by Baller Alert as the Brown/Drake feud rumors swirled. “My post was for hip-hop. Stay classy.”
