Photos Rihanna’s tweeted of her and Chris Brown may have some assuming they’re back together, but Chris admits he’s still confused about love.
“Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life,” the singer told XXL magazine.
Fans know that Chris’ romantic life has been blog and social media fodder for years, even before the 2009 incident that led to his breakup with Rihanna.
Chris is presumably single now after ending things with model Karrueche Tran, but Rihanna’s most recent Twitter photos have increased speculation that he’s reconciled with the Unapologetic artist.
Though he’s been accused of being romantically involved with both women at the same time, Chris said he’s not the type of guy to toy with women’s emotions.
“When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player, but that’s not true,” he explained.
While many have criticized Rihanna for forgiving Chris and having any sort of relationship with the man who bruised her face, others support the reunion, acknowledging that their relationship is really a private matter.
“It’s none of our business. We don’t know what happened in that car. It was a horrible situation, but nobody was sitting in the backseat of that car. Whatever they went through is what they went through. We pray for both of them, and you wish them both the best. Hopefully, they can repair their relationship, whatever it is that they had,” actress Tichina Arnold told GlobalGrind.com.
Tina Campbell, of the gospel group Mary Mary, shared a similar sentiment with Sister 2 Sister earlier this year.
“If they forgave each other, let them forgive each other,” she said. “Let them people be in love if that’s what they want to do.”
While Rihanna shared the photo of her and Chris and one last week of Chris lying on a bed, Tichina has some contrary advice for the couple.
“I train myself to keep my relationships off the red carpet,” said the newlywed. “The red carpet is my job. That’s my work. So, I don’t bring my personal business to my work.”
It remains to be seen whether that’s a suggestion Chris and Rihanna will one day act on.
