Rihanna is reportedly thinking about dating Chris Brown again. It was recently revealed that the two are in talking terms again.

A source told Hollywood Life: "Rih will never stop loving and caring about Chris Brown.That was the true love of her life and he'll always have a special place with her. They talk and text and she absolutely loves [his daughter] Ro Ro, especially talking to her on FaceTime with Chris."

"He's come a long way but he still has more to go. Rih knows in her heart he still has unresolved feelings for Karrueche [Tran] and she wasn't happy to hear about this restraining order situation. It drives her nuts when she hears about him and his dealings with other females whether it be good or bad. Rih loves him and could see herself with him but he has to get rid of many of his unresolved issues," the insider added.

Brown had infamously assaulted the five-time Grammy winner in 2009. He hit her so forcefully that she had major bruising on her face, a split lip, and a bloody nose. However, the two of them still have a strong and complicated bond, despite their public breakup and drama.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Daily Mail, Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty revealed that his daughter and Brown will not be getting back together. He said: "I don't know what their relationship is now. At the basketball, they just said 'hi and hello'. When we was going to the car park he was trying to talk with her but she turned and was talking to somebody else, so he came and talked to me and I had a picture with him. Afterwards Robyn said, 'dad you really taking pictures with he though?'"

"Let her do what she wants to do. This recycling thing don't work for everything, people don't ask me if I could go back with Ms Fenty. Chris is a player, he ain't ready for no one women yet, he ain't ready. He's a party guy," Fenty added.
