But, if the reports are true, the Barbados-born star and the flame who beat her so bad she landed in the hospital are "on" again in paradise.
Several media outlets are reporting that the couple has been spotted by numerous witnesses enjoying romantic dinners and even sharing a kiss along the French Riviera.
While not everyone is saying the couple enjoyed more than a romantic dinner, HollywoodLife claims the couple was seen kissing in St. Tropez this past weekend.
Apparently, they were doing so with no fear of the paps, as the site says they were smooching in "plain sight of other partygoers" aboard the yacht owned by a Malaysian billionaire.
"It was a very private party on a yacht, so they were not worried,” says a source who was there. "There were clearly sparks flying between [them]."
U.K.'s The Sun also reports the couple spent the night together, sans other partygoers. Says a source: "Chris took a car at 4 a.m. to Port de Golfe Juan, then a tender to Rihanna's yacht and went straight to her cabin - re-emerging at 8 a.m."
Chris did have good reason to be in St. Tropez, aside from Rihanna; he was shooting a video with Swizz Beatz and Ludacris.
But, in a happy accident (?), it just so happened Rihanna was there, too, for some R&R.
Those close to Brown confirm what we all suspected: RiRi and her abuser have been together for some time.
No matter that Brown also has another girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
A colorful source who is close to Brown had diarrhea of the mouth, saying more than once that "Chris ain’t really concerned about Karrueche’s feelings."
"She knows what time it is and she in line with the s***," Brown's "friend" continues. "He’s Chris Brown. You think she’s going anywhere? He could f*** in front of her she wouldn’t say s***."
"I ain’t saying it’s right or wrong, I’m just saying it is what it is. She’s loving this life at all cost. She’s gangster for that.”
