Another day, another story about Rihanna and Chris Brown hooking up. I hope whomever is leaking these stories to the press is making enough money to cover someone’s college tuition or massive student loan payments.
A source close to the Barbadian beauty says her troubled ex-boyfriend may not have landed a helicopter on the luxury yacht she’s chartering around the French Riviera, as some are speculating, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t spent time on it.
According to the insider, Brown boarded Ri-Ri’s 170-foot yacht — named “Latitude” — last week in Sardinia, where the 24-year-old singer temporarily had docked the vessel.
“He was probably there for two days,” says the insider, who saw Brown, 23, firsthand on the island off Italy, but added that
“Rihanna doesn’t want anyone to know that they are together.”
“Together” is speculative, considering that Brown is still technically in a relationship with 24-year-old petite model Karrueche Tran.
But our insider says that during his brief time on the five-star luxury mega-yacht, the ex-couple made sure to keep up their appearances. Brown was taken by a dinghy belonging to the craft, which also held several of Rihanna’s friends, to a private beach owned by the Hotel Cala Di Volpe in the Costa Smeralda.
“It’s very private, very small,” says the in-the-know source about the beach, adding that “no paparazzi can go there.”
But after less than a week apart, the former flames may have their opportunity to reunite.
On Sunday, Brown Instagrammed his helicopter arrival in Cannes with rapper Ludacris . Soon after, Rihanna, in Saint Tropez aboard the yacht at the time, tweeted: “Touch down baby, help me pick out my [out]fit.”
Yes, I know. You’re shocked. So very, very shocked. Try to contain yourself. That is, if you could muster a damn to give anymore.
