After all that we went through with the couple three years ago, we were shocked to see the latest Us Weekly cover claiming the two have recently rekindled their romance. If you remember, it was on February 8, 2009 that Brown physically assaulted then-girlfriend, Rihanna, during an argument in his rented Lamborghini the night before the Grammy awards. Both stars canceled their appearances for the night as rumors began to swirl about Brown being arrested and Rihanna being hospitalized. Chris Brown Allegedly Assaults Rihanna
Then, the photos emerged—the photos of Rihanna's badly beaten and bruised face. It was the very work of her supposedly loving boyfriend, who was later sentenced to 5 years probation, community service and domestic violence counseling after reaching a plea deal in August 2009.
And now, as the anniversary of the incident approaches, we're just supposed to sit back and watch the two get back together? Absolutely not. Here's three reasons why the idea of Chris Brown & Rihanna round two is driving us mad with anger:
1. Chris Brown hasn't really changed.
Is it all about the F.A.M.E for this rapper? The 22-year-old singer is planning to return to the Grammy stage this year, and a source close to him tells RadarOnline that he's a changed man. "Chris has grown tremendously as a person, and as an artist from that time in his life. Chris has complied with all arms of his probation and has completed most of his court ordered community service. He has been a model probationer, but more importantly, Chris accepted responsibility for what he did."
Ah, but has he really grown up and gotten a hold of his anger? Let's look at the evidence: In December 2010, he made fun of singer Raz-B on Twitter for being molested as a child. In March 2011, when he was questioned about his assault on Rihanna on Good Morning America, he trashed his dressing room and threw a chair through a window. And, in November 2011, he took to Twitter to say: "I dont say sh*t to anybody and everyone feels its cool to attack me. GROWN ADULTS!!!! that sh*t happened three years ago!... MY MUSIC DOESNT PROMOTE VIOLENCE nor will it ever! only thing it will increase is the pregnacy rate!"
Yes, that sounds like a really regretful and refined man to us.
