After posting numerous pictures of one another on the social media accounts, it should come as no surprise that Rihanna is planning to spend New Year’s with Chris Brown in Barbados.
According to gossip site Examiner, Rihanna booked an exclusive villa in her homeland and plans to have the couple spend the holiday with their parents. Rihanna has already been seen recently going out with Brown’s mother.
A source close to the couple told Heat magazine, “She’s booked him and his mum into a five-star villa in Barbados over New Year so they can all get some downtime with her family.
"While no one else can understand it, she’s convinced that Chris is the love of her life and her soulmate and that they’re simply meant to be together.
"The more the public criticizes Rihanna for getting back with Chris, the more determined she is to do whatever she wants. But they’re unrepentant and they want to show the whole world that they’ve moved on from what happened in 2009,” the source went on to say.
It seems Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, has already given Chris Brown his blessing to marry the Barbadian singer.
“Whatever makes her happy. I hope one day she will get married. Everyone adores Chris, he's a super guy,” Fenty told Life & Style magazine in October, according to the Daily Mail.
“The family loved Chris Brown before they met him. I always thought he was extremely talented. He is a good person and always gave me great respect,” Fenty went on to say.
Rihanna and her father have not always had a close relationship. When she gave an exclusive interview to Oprah earlier this year, Rihanna revealed that she and her father had a falling out due to his often abusive behavior toward Rihanna's mother.
After Chris Brown's assault, however, she reflected back on her childhood and realized that he was a wonderful father. After speaking with him again, Rihanna was able to separate how he acted as a husband from how he acted as a parent.
Her forgiveness of her dad helped her forgive Chris Brown.
Now, three years later, Rihanna openly admits that she is still in love with the singer, telling Oprah "We love each other and we probably always will."
