Rihanna and Chris Brown may be getting married this summer?
There have been rumors Rihanna and Brown are engaged since she showed off a diamond on her left ring finger last month at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
A source told Perez Hilton that they're engaged and have planned a late July wedding in Barbados, Rihanna's home country.
“They want tattoo artists, firebreathers and a near-naked wait staff. They’re even talking about having prerolled joints at the reception,” the source claimed.
Their relationship drew public criticism in 2009 after Brown assaulted Rihanna, leaving her face bloodied and bruised the night before the Grammy Awards. Since then, they've been trying to repair their relationship. Last year, Rihanna told Oprah that Brown is the love of her life.
"I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that,” Rihanna said in the February issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
“Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake," said Rihanna, who turned 25 on Feb. 20. "After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Brown, 23, said the night he brutalized Rihanna was "the biggest mistake" of his life.
Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, has sounded supportive of his daughter's relationship with Brown.
“Whatever makes her happy. I hope one day she will get married. Everyone adores Chris, he's a super guy,” Fenty said in October's Life & Style magazine.
“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.”
