Now that Drake and Rihanna may once again become an item, a source reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that while Chris Brown is not necessarily bothered by that, Drake will never understand the ‘connection’ that he has with Rihanna.
After Drake, 27, and Rihanna, 26, split from their brief but intense romance this past May, it seemed like Chris Brown, 25, and Drizzy finally buried the hatchet. Not only were they photographed recording together, but they both collaborated on a skit at the ESPYs in July which poked fun at their feud. However, despite Chris now getting fairly serious with Karrueche Tran, 26, sources close to Chris reveal to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Drake just doesn’t understand the “connection” that he has with Rihanna.
Chris Brown: Drake Doesn’t Understand The ‘Connection’ That He Has With Rihanna
Of course, these feelings are coming to the surface following the possibility that RiRi and Drake may reignite their romance. The two partied together until closing at Griffin in NYC on August 18, and the following night, Rihanna was seen getting down at Drake’s Drake vs. Lil Wayne NYC tour stop.
Chris certainly has no claim to Rihanna, but, regardless, sources close to him reveal that he would be totally fine if Drake and Rihanna started dating again, and it wouldn’t ruin their repaired friendship of sorts.
“If that makes Drake happy, you know, go for it. Chris isn’t really concerned about Drake being with […] his ex. He really thinks everyone should be happy and if Drake is trying to be content with that, more power to him,” says our HollywoodLife.com source close to Chris.
Rihanna & Chris Brown ‘Have A Bond And Connection’
However, Rihanna and Chris “have a bond and connection that’s so deep that know one can fully understand except them,” our source explains.
“That’s just a fact. He knows it. She knows it. Everybody knows it and that’s that. When it comes to Rihanna, you know, her name and his name will forever be intertwined, no matter who she’s talking to at any given moment.
“It’s not him trying to be cocky or throw fire on Drake, it’s just a fact. Can’t fault him for that.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think that Drake and Rihanna will get back together in earnest? Should they? And will Rihanna and Chris ever get rid of their “connection”? Let us know.
