Rihanna was ready to marry Chris Brown before he attacked her in 2009. The Loyal hitmaker had infamously assaulted the five-time Grammy winner - 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. A source told Hollywood Life: "They talked marriage all the time. Rihanna wanted to marry him just as much as he did — but that was thrown out the door by the abuse and jealously. It just wasn't going to happen no matter how much they wanted it to. The love they had for each other soured after things got volatile between them."

This comes after Brown confessed he was going to propose Rihanna, before the unfortunate incident, in is new documentary, Welcome To My Life.

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.
