Get ready… my first drama post on B & B. Dive in and give me your take…

There’s been a couple in the news a lot lately. Well, they are no longer a couple but I keep hearing rumblings about the two. Chris Brown and Rihanna. These two names will always be linked together no matter what they do. I don’t care if they never speak to each other again or if one of them moves to Uzbekistan they will forever be linked.

Lately there have been even more rumors swirling that these two have been secretly spending time together. I wouldn’t doubt it. I wouldn’t say it’s the best idea, but I could see it being true. The talks have been heating up even more because both will be performing at the Grammys this weekend. Then to further stir the pot, it’s been reported that the two spent some time together in her dressing room during rehearsal for the show. Chris Brown’s rep maintains that the two are just working on being friends, but people still aren’t buying it.

I have taken a little flack from my peeps because I haven’t been on the “bash Chris Brown” train. I, of course, in no way condone what happened between these two three years ago. I also recognize that it was between these two and it was three years ago. All things considered, I would hope that each would not only learn from their mistakes but also be given the chance to learn from their mistakes.

I had a conversation not too long ago with friends and one started bashing Brown and how his career should be over and they’d never support him again. I was silent in the room, then all eyes were on me. I’m sure they wanted me to chime in and agree. I couldn’t do that. I tend to look at it this way, I wouldn’t want someone bringing up the worse thing I’ve ever done every time they talked about me or saw me. Is that fair? If he was some repeat offender like OJ, Charlie Sheen or Ike Turner then you have more grounds to be disgruntled. That’s not the case.

I wouldn’t be cheering if these two got back together. Let me be clear there. It just seems like asking or begging for trouble. At the same time, who am I to say if either of them have changed. I’m different than I was three years ago. Could they be too? The other question out there is are they responsible for how their younger fans would view them getting back together and what message that would send? Thoughts?

  1. Their relationship ended in such a volatile way that it’s perfectly reasonable for us to be concerned if they’re going back into it again. Yes, I think therapy can help control the kind of behavior he exhibited, but long term and ongoing therapy. I just hope for the best.

  2. Everytime I hear about a possible “duet” or them back together, it makes me cringe. I am certainly not anti chris brown, but I am pro-rhianna. I can totally see this happening again. I hope they are mature enough to handle the situation, because if it happens again, I think rhi rhi would lose a LOT of fans. The sympathy would go right out the window.

  3. Like you, I’ve never jumped on the “death to CB” bandwagon. And I’ll be clear – domestic violence is wrong. Period. But, based on their age at the time, their history of violence against one another, etc, I would hope that therapy and time would heal their wounds. I don’t think that he should remain in purgatory forever. If they still truly care for one another, perhaps working on their friendship is a good thing.

  4. I do not know how I feel about this! We will never understand them and their true feelings. I am sure there will be more trouble in the future if they are back together.

  5. I would hope they’ve grown and learned from their previous relationship debacle. I don’t condone his actions at all and if they decide to reconcile then they’ll have to deal with the media! I love them both as artists.

  6. I never did the anti-Chris thing either. I realize they were young, what he did was wrong, regardless of age. They had a volatile relationship: her hitting him, him hitting her. I would hope that time and therapy have helped them both, but I can’t really pin down my feelings about them potentially reconciling. I don’t like that it would undoubtedly send a message to their younger fans that violence is acceptable. But might it also send the message that people can change or to give second chances? Overall, I’m not a fan of either of their music and since I don’t know either personally, I can’t say that their being back together would be a negative thing. If he has the potential to be a repeat offender and she is a trigger for him (not saying she caused his actions, but I hope you get what I mean), then no, they shouldn’t act on any impulses. They may still be attracted to one another, and neither has been rumored to be with another person, so maybe there’s loneliness in there too.

    I do not think that he should be reminded of that incident forever, but you’re right; their names will be linked forever and ever amen. He can get married tomorrow and go on to have seven babies and be a superstar like no other and in writing a review the reporter would likely still close with Chris was charged with domestic battery back __ years ago against singer and then girlfriend Rihanna. It’ll be with him forever. Hell, it’ll be with her forever.

  7. Tough one… I mean, at this point, it has been a long time. She did get away, she did move on… it’s not like she was trapped and couldn’t break away from him. She found the strength to do it (even if it was pressure from her reps!). So, if she is considering him again, I would think she would be thinking more with her head than her heart. I don’t know. I am not a fan of his- it has a lot to do with his behavior after the incident. Interesting that the public can forgive people like Sheen though- because he has a personality? I can go on and on… and I still don’t think I have even made a point!

  8. I don’t know about this one I have been on the fence on one side of the fence I don’t condone a man putting his hands on a women period but on the other side some women don’t know when to be quiet they keep pushing a man with actions or words and when that man snaps it’s all on the man. (I say this because I have made my hubs mad with my words just to get a reaction out of him. He has never hit me but he does get very angry but I push him to that brink) When people are in love they do some crazy things.

  9. I hope she doesn’t get back with him….it would just be trouble and just go against everything i believe in! You don’t allow people who hurt you to come back into your life!! Hope they are rumors!

  10. I’ve heard a few radio DJ’s speculate that MAYBE they could have been in the dressing room working on doing a part of the grammy performace together. If that were true it would be interesting to say the least. I don’t have too many opinions on thier relationship because I don’t know them or what really happened- sometimes I feel bad for celebrities because their personal lives are so public that every single move has to be calculated…or else… Sometimes a mistake can’t be a mistake (not that I’m condonning what reportedly happened between the two of them)

  11. I can’t help but wonder if all the rumors, etc is just to create more buzz to get more people to watch/tune into the Grammys…?

    I totally understand where you’re coming from. As someone who HAS suffered from domestic violence from the hands of my ex, I don’t think it’s a good idea for them to get back together, but I also won’t jump on the “Bash Chris Brown” bandwagon either. Yes, it was absolutely brutal what he did to her. And no, it doesn’t matter what she did/said/etc to him. NOTHING warrants abuse, and certainly not to THAT degree. But he is allowed to change/mature/grow/learn from him mistakes. And I hope that’s exactly what he did.

  12. I never jumped on the bask Chris Brown train either. I think he did his time, he said he was sorry, he made a mistake. Move on. I believe in second chances. THAT being said, I don’t think him and Rhianna getting back together is a good idea. That is a toxic relationship. But then again, we weren’t there. We don’t know the dynamics of that relationship. sooo, friendship between the two might be a good idea for them. It could be nothing more, but if it is, who are we to judge? They grown!
