Rihanna’s friends are trying to keep her from reuniting with Chris Brown, it has been reported.

The pair appear to have rekindled their romance after exchanging messages on Twitter and even reportedly spending Valentine’s Day together. They split three years ago after Chris physically attacked Rihanna and was subsequently charged with felony battery.

However, Rihanna is believed to still be harbouring feelings for him and is considering reigniting the romance – even though her loved ones are against the idea.

“Chris Brown and Rihanna are dangerously close to getting back together… but the singers' friends are desperately trying to keep them apart... for their own good,” reports TMZ. “According to sources, Rihanna is still head over heels for Chris… Now, sources tell us, Rihanna and Chris' friends are terrified they'll get back together - and they're doing everything they can to prevent a possible reunion.”

However, Rihanna and Chris are refusing to listen to any advice and seem to be determined to get back together. Their friends are feeling frustrated but don’t think they can do anything to stop them.

"You can't hold back love," a sourced added to the website.

On Monday Chris took to this Twitter account to publicly wish Rihanna a happy birthday. Earlier this week the pair simultaneously released remixes of tracks featuring each other.
