Rihanna is reportedly communicating with Chris Brown following his recent rehab release.
The Bajan singer, 25, split up with Brown, 24, last year and while she is believed to have moved on insiders claim the pair are rebuilding their friendship. Brown checked out of rehab on Feb. 22 after completing a 90-day court-ordered program for anger management.
"Chris started texting Rihanna on her birthday (Feb. 20), and the two have been sending each other a flurry of texts ever since," a source told the New York Post's Page Six.
"Rihanna didn't write back right away ... but later that night she started getting sentimental and texted back, 'thank you,' and asked how he was," the source continued. "Since then, the two haven't stopped texting each other and friends are freaked out that she's going to start dating him again."
Brown, who was convicted of assaulting Rihanna in 2009, is still completing community service in relation to the incident. He was sentenced to an additional 90-days in rehab on Nov. 20 after an incident involving his mother.
"He's back home now and he feels good about it," a source said.
The report follows claims that Rihanna is seeing Brown's former rival, Drake. The pair has been photographed together on various occasions in recent months which has fueled romance rumors.
In a recent interview the "Worst Behavior" rapper acknowledged that he did in fact once date the "Diamonds" singer, however, he confirmed that they are not currently in an exclusive relationship. Fans are now speculating whether Rihanna and Brown will get back together in 2014.
"She's the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like, 'Man, that would be good,'" Drake told Rolling Stone about Rihanna.
"We have fun together, she's cool and s---. But we're just friends. That's my dog for life," he revealed.
Brown has been linked to Los Angeles based model Karrueche Tran for over a year, however, they have not publicly confirmed their relationship.
"In Chris' eyes, they have a solid relationship and bond that's tight. He likes it and he wants to keep things between them just the way they are," a source said of Brown and Tran.
"He just got out of rehab. Don't expect him to all of a sudden now wife Karrueche up," the source went on. "He's well aware that she wants a commitment from him but he's not ready for all that, and she's cool with that."
