Rihanna and Chris have reportedly been secretly hooking up for the past year and a top therapist and psychiatrist think it’s totally fine if Rihanna and Chris get back together — find out why!
We were totally shocked to hear that Rihanna and Chris Brown were having intimate rendezvous — especially since Chris badly beat Rihanna up in 2009. But HollywoodLife.com spoke to two top experts who tells us that as long as they do one thing, they can make this work!
“I don’t have an issue with them hooking up as long as he’s completed his anger management and he is getting therapy,” Dr. Jeff Gardere, assistant clinical professor at Touro college of Osteopathic Medicine in NYC says. “And that she has gotten therapy. If she hasn’t gotten therapy, it’s not a good idea.”
Dr. Gilda Carle, relationship expert to the stars, agrees and says she thinks it’s “safe” for them to try and work things out, as long as Chris has “learned from his mistakes.”
“They cant start where they once were,” Dr. Carle tells us. “It will have to be a totally new relationship because they would have to be totally new people, much more mature.”
But could Chris beat Rihanna up again?
“If I said once a batterer always a batterer I’d be drummed out of the business,” Dr. Gardere says. “If she hasn’t gotten therapy I don’t think it’s healthy to hook up, because she has to address her own self esteem issues.”
But they definitely should NOT be having just sex!
“They should not be having intimacy if they haven’t worked out their issues in therapy,” Dr. Gardere continues. “Even sex, sex alone, is a very dangerous proposition because feelings become involved. It’s intimacy the last time I checked.”
