Rihanna reportedly felt "kicked in the teeth" after seeing photos of Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran.
The Diamonds singer began dating the rapper in 2008, but the pair split a year later after he assaulted her. Amid their on-off relationship over the years Chris had also struck up a romance with model Karrueche, who he is now believed to have reunited with. The rumoured couple were photographed looking happy and relaxed together at an American football match in Los Angeles earlier this month, which is believed to have irked Rihanna.
These pictures came after claims Chris had reportedly been pursuing Kendall Jenner, but that supposedly didn't seem to bother the Bajan beauty.
"Rihanna reached out to him when she heard that things weren't going well with Karrueche and was desperate for them to meet," a source told British magazine Look. "She'd heard the rumours about him and Kendall, but knew that would never last considering how young she is, but it was when she saw those pictures of him all over Karrueche that she felt really kicked in the teeth."
Despite these snaps Chris and Rihanna have caused confusion, with him reportedly attending one of her gigs with Eminem and apparently her sneaking back stage while she watched him play basketball on another occasion.
With such a turbulent love life, Rihanna is said to feel let down by her former beau's behaviour.
"Rihanna thought she and Chris were going to give things another go. She feels like he reels her in with promises of commitment, but can never come good on them," the source added. "She feels like he's trying to play her and Karrueche off against each other."
