AceShowbiz - Chris Brown really still cares about Rihanna, years after they broke up for the second time. Not only he posted a birthday message on Instagram on her 30th birthday recently, but he also reportedly sent her an expensive gift on that special day.
The 28-year-old R&B singer "dropped thirty thousand on a diamond chain for Rihanna's birthday" on February 20, a source tells HollywoodLife.com. And "he sent it over with 30 red roses," the so-called insider goes on revealing.
The source said RiRi actually enjoyed the gift and she "was happy he remembered her birthday, but she's not going to wear the chain," because "it's not her style at all anymore." The source explains, "It's something she would have worn back when they were together, but she's a grown woman now and she's changed."
The "Work" hitmaker didn't try to hide it either from her boyfriend Hassan Jameel. The source says RiRi was "open and honest" about the unexpected birthday gift from Breezy. "She showed him the chain and told him she was keeping it," the source reveals.
As to how Hassan reacted to the gift from her ex, he reportedly wasn't angry a bit. The source says, "He didn't seem to care, he had a good laugh about the whole situation. Hassan has made it very clear that he doesn't think much of Chris. As far as he's concerned it's pretty pathetic that he'd still be sending gifts to Rihanna but he's not stressing over it."
Previously, Chris posted on his Instagram account a childhood photo of Rihanna to wish her a happy birthday. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY @badgalriri," he simply wrote in the caption.
His birthday post for Rihanna drew mixed reactions from fans. While some people told him to leave his ex, whom he infamously beat up in 2009, some others think it's sweet. There were also some Chris and Rihanna shippers who wished them to get back together.
After the 2009 battery case, Chris and Rihanna briefly reunited in 2012 and collaborated on a duet called "Nobody's Business". In May 2013, Chris confirmed that he and Rihanna had broken up again.
