Af­ter Chris re­fol­lowed Ri on In­sta­gram, in­sid­ers re­veal the pair might be set to rec­on­cile… Nooo!

Is there any­thing Ri­hanna can’t do? Singer, hu­man­i­tar­ian, de­signer, actress… But when one part of your life’s go­ing well, some­thing else crops up. So we’re not sur­prised Riri’s pals are con­cerned that the 29-yearold has been back in touch with toxic ex Chris Brown – some­thing he’s at­tempted to make public by fol­low­ing her on In­sta­gram.

‘Ri­hanna’s in touch with him but she also knows he’s in a bad cir­cle right now,’ says her friend, ‘and she can’t af­ford to be around any con­tro­ver­sies while she’s get­ting her act­ing ca­reer off the ground.’

As Look re­ported, Ri’s been con­cen­trat­ing on her ca­reer and throw­ing her­self into new op­por­tu­ni­ties. In Fe­bru­ary, she wowed ev­ery­one when she won Har­vard Univer­sity’s 2017 Hu­man­i­tar­ian of the Year Award and only last week she made her TV de­but as Mar­ion Crane in Bates Mo­tel. In short, she’s smash­ing it.

Although Riri’s ad­mit­ted she found her sex scenes ‘weird’, show co-creator Carl­ton Cruse has been full of praise: ‘She worked her ass off. The charisma was some­thing I knew about. [What] re­ally im­pressed me was her work ethic.’

That’s why the con­tact with Chris, 27, is pretty damn alarm­ing. Still, this is Ri­hanna, and her friends say that for now she’s keep­ing him at arm’s length.

‘Ri­hanna’s very wary,’ says an­other pal. ‘It’s a new era for her and she wants to draw a line un­der her past, so she’s very much keep­ing it as friends.’

And re­port­edly her ‘friend’ stance ex­tends to Drake, 30, too. His new ‘playlist’ More Life in­cludes so many lyrics that could be ref­er­enc­ing his on-off love, in par­tic­u­lar: ‘I need you to stop run­ning back to your ex, he’s a waste­man’, which many have spec­u­lated is a di­rect aim at Riri.

‘She’s not overly happy about [Drake’s lyrics],’ her friend con­tin­ues. ‘She’s got no time for guys like that any­more – guys who don’t know what they want.’ Take note, Chris…
