Rumors have been swirling for a while now that Chris Brown and Rihanna are an item again... at least in secret. Let's pretend for a minute that Chris Brown doesn't have a girlfriend. I was willing to ignore the rumors -- for Rihanna's sake, because girl, seriously, girl -- but according to the Superficial, Chris and Rihanna were at a party together

Fortunately, Rihanna and Chris didn't leave the party together. It could be argued that just because they happened to go to the same party, that doesn't mean that anything is going on -- especially because Chris was there with that girlfriend I mentioned, Karrueche Tran, and he left with her as well.

In general, I'd say most girls who had had their faces bashed in by a boyfriend would go out of their way not to attend the same party as him. I mean, I think most girls would probably just stay home in their fuzzy slippers. However, Rihanna has never struck me as the most rational (bless her, I love the girl). If the rumors are true, I'm sad, but not entirely surprised; she's fallen into a really bad, but all too common cycle, of returning to someone who is really, really not good for her.  

Lovelies, what do you think? Do you believe the Rihanna and Chris Brown rumors?
