(NEW YORK) — Rihanna and Chris Brown have been “seeing a lot of each other in private,” despite her management’s fear of a backlash if they publicly reunite, sources are telling the New York Post.
Brown and Rihanna — and members of RiRi’s family — reportedly cheered on the Miami Heat on Saturday at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York City, although the pair entered and left the club separately. A spy told the paper, “Rihanna arrived first in a yellow cab, with her family and friends, and was escorted to a private room. Brown arrived a little later and joined her and her family. They sat on the same couch together rooting for the Heat. There was no sign of [Brown’s] girlfriend.”
The recording artists “kept a coy distance” at a downtown club called SL later that night.
As far as their relationship goes, a source says her management is increasingly concerned because, “it is only a matter of time before they’ll be more public about it. It’s like she is testing the water…so the public won’t be completely shocked when they step out together publicly. It means she probably won’t release another album this year, for fear of a backlash.”
