the problem with Chris Brown “congratulating” Rih is that he’s NEVER shown that energy with his own children’s mothers pic.twitter.com/PtqreDmYhA— B.C. 💋 (@hardwhitemaraj) May 19, 2022

One thing about the Chris brown thing — Rihanna may have forgiven him, but many of her fans have not and probably never will. Obviously he don’t need to care BUT he can’t be mad if people blast him every time he communicates with her 🤷🏾♂️— Rohan Carrington (@RCarrington_9) May 20, 2022
Rihanna and Chris Brown famously dated for two years. In 2009, Brown violently attacked Rihanna the day before she was scheduled to perform at the 51st Grammy Awards, which resulted in him being charged with assault and criminal threats.
The pair broke up following an incident. They later reconciled after the incident in 2013 for a few months before going breaking up again.
