MAG: Rihanna & Chris Brown Engaging in “Secret Hookups”
Rihanna and Chris Brown have been “secretly hooking up” for almost a year, claims Us Weekly. The “jaw-dropping revelation” has supposedly been confirmed to the magazine by “several sources,” and the trysts are said to be “common knowledge” in the two performers’ inner circles.
Brown is dating Karrueche Tran, so he and Rihanna allegedly “rendezvous at out-of-the-way places,” according to the magazine. In fact, most of the story revolves around how Rihanna and Brown are keeping their hookups “clandestine” because it adds even more excitement to the relationship.
“It’s a recipe for disaster. Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that,” explains a so-called “insider” for Us. Meanwhile, a Brown “pal” tells the magazine, “Having these flings without the world knowing has made the hookups even hotter.”
OK, so the Us story is basically claiming that Rihanna and Chris Brown are totally together – except exclusively behind closed doors, and no one will ever be able to confirm it. The weekly covers itself even further by mentioning near the end of the article that “most of their friends doubt the two would ever go public again” and that the alleged relationship “isn’t serious.”
Stories about Rihanna and Brown getting back together have been floating around ever since their 2009 breakup. The fact that the former couple has been on good terms for a while is going to fuel even more speculation that they’ve rekindled romantically. But it’s simply not the case. The idea of a reunion has always trumped actual facts in these stories, and there’s no evidence that the two performers have reunited behind Brown’s girlfriend’s back – and the public’s.
A rep for Brown tells Gossip Cop the singer and Rihanna are “just friends,” and that he’s absolutely “not cheating” on Tran.
