It appears that beleaguered R&B singer Chris Brown and pop songstress Rihanna have been maintaining clandestine contact via the social media network Twitter. Reportedly sharp-eyed fans happened to catch Breezy tweeting publicly to the Loud singer, although Brown quickly deleted the tweet which was meant for Rihanna’s eyes only apparently.
According to reports, Breezy’s tweet to RiRi read, “[You] got that pic I sent you” before the tweet vanished. Online sleuths were able to snag a screenshot of the tweet, all but confirming that the pair have been in friendly contact. Although some outlets are reporting that Brown meant to privately message the Barbadian beauty, neither side has stepped up to confirm the story behind the tweet.
Fans of Rihanna were alarmed to learn that the island-bred cutie and Brown have been in contact and began following each other on Twitter, which led to some uproar from Rihanna’s fans. However, Rihanna addressed the furor in her usual spunky and defiant fashion, urging her rabid fan base to not take the Twitter union so seriously.
In 2009, Chris Brown was charged with assault after an argument between the then-couple led to physical violence. Brown was slapped with a strict restraining order that was softened to a “level one order” just this past February which allowed some contact. Brown, attempting to rehab his image since the incident, has reportedly had a few emotional blowups including online spats on Twitter and an alleged outburst on the set of the Good Morning America show.
Brown, still extremely popular, is riding high on the success of his Gold-selling fourth studio LP F.A.M.E.
Rihanna’s fifth studio album Loud continues to be a stateside and global smash with several countries reporting multi-Platinum status for the release.
