Chris Brown-Rihanna Reunion Incites Anger from Fans, Domestic Violence Advocates

It’s official: “Chrianna” is back in full force, just as most observers had long anticipated.

Chris Brown and Rihanna’s “friendship” has been fully rekindled after Breezy dumped Karrueche Tran yesterday because of his so-called friendship with the “Rude Boy” singer — which is an appropriate song since Brown was more than a little rude to her on the eve of the Grammy Awards 3-1/2 years ago. But their alleged reunion has set social media ablaze.

One person joked, “Now that Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together, does this mean we’ll finally get a rematch?”

Another tweeter, Maybe Christian ‏@daCPlanet, said, “What’s your address? I’m gonna send you a helmet and a mouthpiece.”

Rihanna, ever defiant, said last night:

“Ain’t nobody bidness….. But mine and my baby!”

Some domestic violence survivors and advocates were irate, but the object of their ire was RiRi instead of Breezy for allegedly accepting him back into her life.

Black PressRadio reports of former domestic violence survivors revealing their dismay at the “Umbrella” singer and shared their stories.

One reader said:

“I stayed with my 2 kid’s Father for almost 10 yrs to try to save him from his addiction. I even took the kids to daycare because I didn’t trust him watching them. He was a functioning, working addict. I thought I could change him, but he was becoming paranoid and unstable. I was complaining at work and a co-worker told me words that would forever change my life. She said “Can you imagine yourself being with him in 5 years?”. I said “No” so quick I didn’t even have to think about it. Then she said “Well, what are you doing with him now”. The kids and I left. He never even showed up for the divorce hearing. We were considered common law married. That was 18 years ago and he’s still an addict. Women need to realize not to feel “sorry” for them. He had tried to hit me once I’m not embarrassed to say that I left him unconscious with a good beating with a bat. I stayed alone for many years purposely to concentrate on my children only. I was a manager at a computer company, worked out, read, and never wanted to meet up with a man ever again. But I was wooed and I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary to a wonderful, considerate, loving man who both my kids consider “Dad”. My kids are adults now and I’m a Grandma. Now that’s life.”

Take a look at what other angry domestic violence survivors and angry fans had to say.
