Drake and Rihanna have split, and an old flame may be using their breakup as his golden opportunity

Rihanna and Drake have broken our hearts with their split (we seriously thought their relationship was going to work out this time around), but it turns out one person is pretty happy about the breakup — and that person is reportedly Chris Brown.

Referring to Rihanna and Brown's breakup in 2009 as "ugly" would be an understatement, so it would be a controversial move if Rihanna decided to take him back. But apparently that hasn't stopped Brown from pulling out all the moves: According to a HollywoodLife source, Brown has been "going after Rihanna again, hard.

"He just had his assistant send a ton of stuff to her in Barbados for her and her family," the source continued. "He sent booze, flowers, a bunch of toys for all the kids — he knows the way to her heart is through her family."

But that's not all. Apparently Brown took his gifts one step further by handcrafting something for Rihanna. "Plus he did some painting for her — he had it all covered up, but it was something he did himself," the source explained. "He's saying he's going to get her back, that they belong together and stuff. He definitely sees this breakup from Drake as his opportunity."

Would Rihanna really go back to Brown? Well, if her recent Instagram post is anything to go by, she doesn't seem big on getting back with any of her ex-boyfriends.
