Chris Brown may have brutally assaulted her in 2009, but that doesn't mean there's not a chance of hooking back up with Rihanna in 2012. It's being rumored that the two former sweethearts are eyeing a "reconciliation" and may even hook up again soon.
Do you think Rihanna will "reconcile" with her abusive ex-boyfriend? Sure, there are certainly a handful of Chris Brown fans who want nothing more but for the duo to reunite, but would it really be healthy? It seems since they split, Rihanna has flourished into a beautiful, powerful and independent woman who doesn't really need anyone in her life, much less someone who mangled her face beyond easy recognition when she was just out of her teen years.
Sources are saying that the two of them have been having lengthy conversations on the phone and texting one another. They're also planning on hooking up in Los Angeles after she returns from her vacation in Barbados. Do you think this is true, or will Rihanna release a gossip-quashing statement on her Twitter? Fans of the two have been speculating for a couple of days now that they might be hooking up because of some "I Love You" styled tweets they both shared. Maybe their fans are right to speculate, but hopefully for the sake of Rihanna's health and appearance this doesn't pan out as true.
Would it work between Chris Brown and Rihanna?
Every relationship is different, just like each individual is a different person. So there's no telling if a reconciliation between the two could work. However, domestic violence experts generally agree that violent abusers don't tend to stray from their ways. So many women fall into the routine of staying with an abusive lover for a variety of reasons. They may feel that they've changed, or that they may change for them. They may feel hopeless, like they have no other options. They may feel like it's okay, or acceptable that their significant other abuses them. There is a phenomenon known as "battered wife syndrome," and it pretty much covers all of these little "what ifs."
Over 4 million women are assaulted by their domestic partner every year. Now that's nothing to scoff at, and it definitely shows that there's a problem with this type of crime. Hopefully Rihanna doesn't get blinded by memories of teen love before the so-called "incident" and make the same mistakes that led to it in the first place.
