We’ve reported that Chris Brown and Rihanna reunited after the alleged assault incident that happened a few weeks ago. Recently, there has also been a rumor that the couple would also collaborate in the studio soon on a duet that would go on Chris’s forthcoming album. The record has been set straight by the song’s producer and it appears that the track was recorded in the studio prior to the alleged assault the night before the Grammys. A rep for producer Polow da Don, who is working with Brown, clarified the situation: "The duet was recording long before the incident." Evidently, reports of Rihanna heading into the recording studio qualified as postproduction—mixing, audio tweaking, etc of the original previous recorded track.
Polow released a statement on the situation Thursday, saying, "My heart goes out to both Chris and Rihanna for what has happened in the past. They are both great artists to work with and I wish them well."
Brown is scheduled to be arraigned on felony charges of making criminal threats and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury on April 6th. Meanwhile, reports of Rihanna hitting the town were widely publicized this past week. Both artists have returned to the studio at this time and we will continue to report on details on the case as they become available.
