Rihanna, Chris Brown in Verbal Altercation? Singer 'Under Stress'

Chris Brown and Rihanna were reportedly involved in heated argument on Monday night following reports that the pair had reconciled.

Brown, 23, recently ended his two-year relationship with Karrueche Tran, admittedly over Rihanna, 24, although the singer has not confirmed that they are romantically involved. New reports suggest that the Bajan singer became enraged in recent days because Brown opted to go out with friends instead of spending time with her.

"Rihanna is under a lot of stress [with her new album] and she wants [Chris] with her all the time. But Chris has his own stuff to do," a source reportedly told MediaTakeOut.

"[Rihanna] is very extra. She orders him around like 'come here' . . . 'do this!' That s--- used to work before [when Chris and Rihanna were together], but Chris is a lot older. He's a man and so you can't do him like that anymore," the source went on.

The report follows recent claims that Brown has been spotted spending time with Tran, 24, despite their recent split.

Tran was photographed arriving at Brown's Los Angeles home following a night of hard partying on Oct. 8 and just a few days prior the pair sparked rumors of a reconciliation after reportedly attending a mutual friend's birthday party together.

Brown, who broke up with Rihanna in 2009 following a domestic assault incident, has sparked reports of an alleged love triangle as he has also been photographed spending time with Rihanna.

The "Turn Up The Music" singer was reportedly spotted being intimate Rihanna at a New York nightclub just one week ago and days later they were photographed on a date enjoying Jay-Z's concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Oct. 3 together. Some critics suspect that by spending time with both women at once, he is setting himself up for disaster.

"Chris wants to set [Karrueche] up financially and do right by her- he wants her to stay in his life if possible," a source reportedly told The Sun U.K.

"Rihanna called Karrueche for a proper heart-to-heart. They needed to air a few problems. The girls talked for close to two hours. Rih answered all of the questions and Karrueche had a few home truths to tell her," the insider went on.
