Rumors are swirling that Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky are seeing each other after the two worked closely with one another on a new song.
The two have been watched while filming with insiders citing the "obvious chemistry" and "mutual attraction" to each other, according to the Hollywood Gossip.
Rihanna and Brown are said to still "love and respect each other," sources say, but Brown is thought to have returned to seeing Karrueche Tran.
In May Brown, 24, and Rihanna, 25, reportedly ended their tumultuous relationship over his friendship with Tran. A source claims to have unveiled why exactly the "Fine China" singer chose to be with the model, 25, over Rihanna.
"Chris is happy with her. She gets him. She really understands him. She's low-key the one. S--- is just easy and breezy [with Karrueche]," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
In 2009 Brown was convicted of assaulting Rihanna during a domestic dispute and although he apologized and accepted full responsibility the singer has never been able to regain the public's support. While Rihanna previously revealed that she has forgiven Brown for the assault he continues to receive widespread criticism four-years later and Tran has reportedly been a strong source of support during the difficult times.
"She knows what he wants and what he expects and she's cool with it. He always talks open to her, tells her exactly what is on his mind and how he feels about things. In the end, it always works out," the source explained adding "She holds him down and is always there no matter what."
"They went through a lifetime together ... They've had lots of ups and then a HUGE down. Sometimes Chris can't even look at her because it reminds him of the s--- he did years ago. Even though she forgave him, the world hasn't," a source said.
