UPDATE: Chris Brown was spotted early Saturday cruising on a jet ski in the waters around Miami’s Star Island, but Rihanna has not been seen outside the compound. But that hasn’t stopped paparazzi helicopters from buzzing overhead throughout the day.
Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together.
E! News has learned that the R&B-star duo are spending one-on-one time at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Star Island mansion in Miami Beach.
“It’s very private; you can’t see onto the property,” a source said of Combs’ nearly 13,000-square-foot beachfront home.
Earlier this week, sources said that the pair had been in touch, with Brown contacting Rihanna on her 21st birthday on Feb. 20.
A rep for the “Disturbia” singer denied that she had talked to him on the phone, but…they apparently reconnected somehow.
“While Chris is reflective and saddened about what happened, he is really happy to be with the woman he loves,” a source told People, which first reported the apparent reconciliation.
This looks to be the pair’s first in-person reunion since Brown was arrested Feb. 8 for allegedly assaulting Rihanna and leaving her with visible injuries. Except for flashes of them in transit (separately) from here to there, and some pics of Rihanna that just surfaced from her sojourn to Mexico last weekend, both have lain incredibly low since.
Brown, who was booked on Grammy night on suspicion of making criminal threats, is due to be arraigned in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 5 but, according to the L.A. District Attorney’s Office, that might not happen.
“We don’t have the evidence yet. [LAPD detectives] are still investigating,” D.A. spokeswoman Jane Robison told E! News Wednesday.
“The D.A. is being even more thorough than usual with this case. They don’t want to mess it up,” said a source close to the investigation.
At this point, it’s unclear what Rihanna and Brown’s reported reunion could mean for the D.A.’s case.
“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired,” Brown said in a statement released Feb. 15. “I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.”
