Joyce Hawkins, the mother of singer Chris Brown, recently took to Twitter shortly after Rihanna's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on the OWN network and she posted a series of cryptic tweets which fans suspect may have been directed at her son's ex-girlfriend.

On Sunday night, Rihanna spoke candidly about her controversial relationship with Brown, 23, and at one point she admitted that he was the "love of my life." Despite also admitting that she and Brown still love each other and maintain a "very very close" friendship, Rihanna insisted that they have not rekindled their romance, contrary to recent reports.
Hawkins, who has reportedly remained close to the Bajan singer since her relationship with Brown ended in 2009, posted cryptic messages about telling the truth, which has led to speculation that reports of a rekindled romance may actually be true.
"TELL THE TRUTH AND SET YOURSELF FREE," Hawkins tweeted.
"NOT UNTIL YOU TELL THE TRUTH WILL YOU EVER BE FREE!!!!!! PEACE SOMETIMES COMES WITH A PRICE," another tweet read.
"DID YOU SAY SOMETHING? DID IT HELP ANYONE?" she went on.
"BE POSITIVE IT CAN AND WILL HELP SOMEONE," she later tweeted and "ANGELS YOU HAVE BEEN THERE NO MATTER WHAT. YOU ARE THE TRUE MEANING OF 'LOVE IN SPITE OF.'"
Some fans believe that Hawkins' tweets are simply her way of encouraging Rihanna, 24, to come clean about the status of her relationship with Brown.
Various reports have suggested that Brown and Rihanna, who both spent time in St. Tropez in recent weeks, were spotted kissing on Malaysian billionaire Taek Jho Low's private yacht during their stay. Shortly after these reports began swirling, a representative for Brown- possibly because the singer is allegedly dating model Karrueche Tran- suggested that the kissing reports were false.
Rihanna appeared to contradict what the rep said.
"[Chris Brown] is in France to shoot a music video for [the] Swizz Beatz album and Ludacris is in it. It's Swizz's song. [Chris's girlfriend] Karrueche [Tran] is there with him … They never broke up. He is not on [Rihanna's] yacht. There is no Rihanna connection," Brown's rep previously told HollyScoop.com according to the website.
Rihanna, however, openly admitted to recently catching up with Brown in St. Tropez during her interview. She also said that they are working on their friendship and continue to spend time together despite his relationship with Tran.
"I still love him. We're very, very close friends. We built a trust again and that's it. We love each other and we probably always will," Rihanna told Winfrey.
