This is surprising to many as Chris Brown is known for his toxic behavior to Rihanna.
Rihanna dated Chris Brown in 2007, three years after she delved into the music world.
She and Brown dated from 2007 – 2009, the two broke up after Chris Brown physically assaulted Rihanna and was arrested days before the Grammys.
He pleaded guilty and served five years of probation six months of community service and one year of domestic violence counseling.
Rihanna had even filed a restraining order against Brown in February 2011, but the order was eased on condition that he wouldn’t annoy, molest or harass Rihanna.
