Rihanna and Chris Brown have been spotted together a couple of times recently, and though rumors will always fly about the couple no matter what they do, fans are concerned that they really are back together despite the fact that Brown is still on probation for a brutal assault on Rihanna in 2009.
The duo was seen together on Wednesday, taking in a Jay-Z show in Brooklyn while cozied up together. They were also spotted earlier that night leaving the same hotel, although separately.
Rihanna recently sat down for an in-depth interview with Oprah, where she talked about Brown and what happened directly after the assault and his arrest. The singer admitted that she still loves him, and will always love him.
“I felt protective,” she said. “I felt like the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird confusing space to be in because to be as angry and as hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who’s gonna help him? Nobody’s gonna say he needs help. Everybody’s gonna say he’s a monster without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.”
It’s doubtful either one of them will admit any time soon that something is going on, but they aren’t exactly trying to keep it a secret, either. Meanwhile, Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, has been posting odd things on Twitter.
