Rihanna fans found themselves concerned over the possibility that she and Chris Brown had reconciled. Speculating that Rihanna and her boyfriend, Hassan Jameel, may have broken up because of it.
Over the weekend Rihanna posted some racy photos on Instagram to promote her brand Savage X Fenty and apparently Brown couldn’t resist commenting on them.
Considering the pair’s history, many fans found this unacceptable. Fans responded to him demanding he stay away from “Riri” and calling Brown a “loser”.

Rihanna and Brown had been friend since 2005. They performed together in 2007 and then again in 2008. They went public as a couple in 2008 but broke up after Brown plead guilty to assaulting Rihanna just prior to the 51st Grammy’s.
After Brown plead guilty, the court instated a restraining order, mandating that the pair stop communications and stay a certain distance apart.
In August 2009, Chris Brown told Larry King the he was shocked when it all happened because he was not that type of person nor was it who he planned on being.

In an interview with Diane Sawyer, Rihanna said that the pair fell in love really fast and the more they loved one another the more volatile their relationship became.
In February 2011, the restraining order was lifted and the two were no longer required to stay away from one another.
In 2012, Rihanna still seemed to be struggling with the breakup and the aftermath saying in an interview that she had lost her best friend and the assault had turned her world upside down. She said the whole matter was very difficult to come to terms with.
The pair reportedly got back together later in 2012, spotted at a Laker’s game on Christmas of that year.
Several months after, Brown denied that they were actually dating, saying that they were doing their own things and his was focused on being the best person he could be.

Ultimately, it doesn’t seem the pair have rekindled any of their past romance but watch out Chris Brown — Rihanna’s fans are serious and don’t want you having anything to do with her!
