Rihanna and Chris Brown’s pals don’t want them back together. TMZ reports:
Chris Brown and Rihanna are dangerously close to getting back together, sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ — but the singers’ friends are desperately trying to keep them apart … for their own good. According to sources, Rihanna is still head over heels for Chris — despite that fateful night 3 years ago when he brutalized her — and if it weren’t for the media and her fans, she would already have taken him back. We’re told Chris also has extremely strong feelings for Rihanna — current girlfriend be damned. Now, sources tell us, Rihanna and Chris’ friends are terrified they’ll get back together — and they’re doing everything they can to prevent a possible reunion. According to sources, friends on BOTH sides have expressed extremely strong reservations to Ri and CB about spending so much time together … warning it’s a terrible idea … personally AND professionally. But with Rihanna’s birthday … Chris and Rihanna’s duets released this week … friends fear they’re fighting an uphill battle. As one source put it, “You can’t hold back love.”
Listen, I get the argument that battered women take a while to leave abusers. However, keep in mind that most of the battered women in a lot of these women’s lib studies aren’t financially independent or share kids and/or property with their abusers and feel they have no place to go. If you’re rich and have a team of people to help you and you can afford therapy, yet you insist on going back to and making money off of someone who beat you so badly that you were both hospitalized and virtually unrecognizable, then you’re no longer a victim. You’re an idiot and you’re an asshole. Here’s hoping they just kill each other at some point. We need to thin the herd, and let’s face it. It takes something truly terrible to make me turn down any sort of cake.
