Chris Brown Has Regrets over What He Could’ve Had with Rihanna, Happy She’s In Love!
Chris Brown, 30, has grown and learned so much since he dated Rihanna, 31, back in 2008. Now that she’s moved on with boyfriend, businessman Hassan Jameel, Chris Brown is thrilled that his ex has found love and happiness. But, that doesn’t erase the past they shared together. “When it comes down to Chris and his thoughts on Rihanna’s relationship with Hassan, he is really happy for her, as per source close to singer tells the Hollywood Life.
Let me tell you that Chris and Rihanna have known each other since 2005, but didn’t admit to being in a relationship until 2008. The pair made headlines in 2009 when their romance came to an end after an argument between them turned violent. Right after, photos of a bruised and swollen Rihanna made their way around the internet.
Since 2009, the two singers have interacted on and off and collaborated on two tracks in 2012. “Nobody’s Business,” and “Birthday Cake [Remix]”. However, they never got back together. Rihanna and Hassan were first romantically linked in June 2017 when they were photographed kissing at a private villa in Spain.
“He has mixed emotions with it all, but he knows they have both moved on in their own ways,” the insider says, admitting that CB will always have a “soft spot” in his heart for his ex. “Chris feels like he could have been in a position to be with her still, if he chose different ways to pursue that path when he was with her. But, he also knows that that life is now long gone and over, and to harp on it is not wise.” Instead, CB will continue to “support” Rihanna in all aspects of her life.
