Rihanna has released the cover art for her latest single, "Stay," and it features her alongside her on-and-off again boyfriend, Chris Brown.
This is not the first time Rihanna has stirred up controversy over her cover art. For her single, "Diamonds," her cover showed her rolling a blunt full of the jewels.
It is quite interesting that Brown is on the cover of "Stay," after it was reported this week that Rihanna may have moved on from him after a love triangle that has been going on for almost a year.
Hollywood Life stated that the Barbadian beauty is back with ex-boyfriend, Matt Kemp, who plays baseball for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
They first dated in January 2010, but the two broke up after almost a year, citing the strains of a long-distance relationship, a source told the New York Daily News.

"She basically was just over it," and Kemp was not able to “keep up with her crazy travel schedule," the source said.
Moreover, Kemp was "sick of always following after her like a puppy dog all over the world. He wants something more normal," the source added.
After their breakup, Kemp said that Rihanna’s celebrity status had something to do with their demise.
“It was pretty much overwhelming,” Kemp, who earns $150 million with the Dodgers, told Yahoo Sports. "It’s not something I’m used to. I’m not used to going to a grocery store or to just somewhere simple and people following me around. It’s overwhelming.”
But earlier this week, Rihanna joined Kemp at a L.A. restaurant, where they were whisked off to a private dinner table, Hollywood Life reported.
Meanwhile, Rihanna and Chris Brown were last spotted together the first week of January, after spending New Year’s Eve together in Africa. Days later, Brown was seen with ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, heading together to the Agenda Trade Show in Long Beach to promote his clothing line Black Pyramid.
