These days, when people mention Chris Brown and Rihanna, the typical response is, “so, are they gonna say they’re dating yet or what?” But, despite their numerous indirect and direct mentions and videos about each other, their public love triangle with Brown’s ex, Karrueche Tran, and their undying love for each other, the two continue to claim that they are actually just friends.
On Friday, Nov. 9, both Brown and Rihanna did high-profile interviews and when the topic of their alleged romance came up, both stars denied any claims that they were dating again.
“No,” said Brown quickly after Power 106 radio host Big Boy asked him if he and Rihanna are an item again. “And that’s just quick, a quick answer.”
Brown did admit that he understands why people think he and Rihanna are dating, especially since he released a candid video last month revealing that he was in love with both Rihanna and Tran. However, Brown says that he just wanted to open up to the public about his feelings.
“When I feel a certain, an urge, whether it’s music or it’s an emotion, I feel the need to share with people because it’s an experience and a life lesson,” said Brown.
However, he denies that he left Tran for Rihanna and maintains that he and Rih are just friends.
“… It’s just me being honest with myself. Me and her have history and me and her are definitely always going to be best of friends. And we’re working on our friendship now,” he said.
The previous night, Rihanna sat down for a live Facebook interview with Andy Cohen and during a word association-type game, Cohen asked Rihanna to share the first thing that came to mind when she thinks of Brown.
“He’s dope too,” she replied. However, when asked if they’re dating again, she simply said, “No.”
