Chris Brown and Drake have been at each other’s throats, figuratively speaking, for a long time now, but after spending New Year’s Eve together, that old flame has been questioned. While some would believe that seeing the pair squash their beef is a great thing, not a lot of people online are happy about it.
The 32-year-old rapper, Drake, hosted a party on Monday, on the 31st of December, an event which the 29-year-old singer attended. Photos pictured the two hanging out together. Drake wrote on his Instagram, “2019 cook up…Aubreezy.” Drake’s real name, Aubrey, along with Brown’s late name combined is how the word came about.
Regardless, people are upset due to Brown’s relationship with Rihanna, when he and the “Umbrella” singer famously fought each other in a car one night, and it ended with Rihanna’s severely bruised face. TMZ later acquired photos of her and the bruises didn’t look pretty.
As it was previously reported, the singer was taken into police custody in 2009 after he physically assaulted the 30-year-old singer, Rihanna, whom he was in a relationship with at the time. Both Brown and Rihanna were in their early twenties at the time.
He pled guilty to the charges and had to serve approximately five years of probation, as well as community service and counseling for anger and domestic violence.
Since then, Rihanna has reportedly forgiven Chris Brown. A decision not understood by many of her fans. However, sources claim their romance was a mutually abusive relationship, in which she hit him and he hit her back.
Putting the past aside, (unlike some of her fans), one person online wrote, “I can’t believe those two are actually friends. Chris Brown is a scumbag and he always will be after he hit Rihanna all those years ago.”
An insider explained recently, “Chris and Rihanna actually get along a lot to this day and are ardent supporters of each other. They also speak to each other sometimes. It’s hard to believe but it’s supposedly the truth.”
