“Who needs fashion when there's p**** @rihanna #MTFphotography”. So says Melissa forde, Rihanna’s childhood friend and personal assistant, and many of the singer’s admirers would probably be inclined to agree. Forde posted a series of risque pictures of the “Only Girl in the World” singer on Saturday, the day after Rihanna seemed to blow her top at Chris Brown after his night out with ex-girlfriend Karreuche Tran.

Forde’s pictures feature a moody Rihanna posing in fur and a bra, but without panties. Perhaps the intent was to get Brown’s pulse racing. That same day, Rihanna tweeted a picture of her snuggled in Brown’s arms with the caption: “Damn....... I miss my n***a #thuglife #BFFlife”.

On the Friday of Brown’s date with Tran, however, Rihanna was in a far more belligerent mood.

“Examine what you tolerate”, “Goodbye muthaf*****”, “You give, you get, then you give it the f*** back” and “Claps for the basic b******”, she tweeted.

According to a source who spoke to Britain’s Sun newspaper, Rihanna’s has set herself up for a world of heartache.

“She can’t get it into her head that Chris will never change. She's given him so many chances since he beat her up in 2009 and he still keeps hurting her by partying with girls,” said the source.

“Letting Karrueche meet him is yet another blow for Rihanna that will further disgust her fans. They are already raging that she is back with him.”

Brown, however, was clear from the outset that he wasn’t quite ready to settle down.

“You share history with somebody, and then you tend to fall in love with somebody else — it’s kind of difficult,” Brown confessed earlier this year as his flirtation with Rihanna gathered steam.

“Is there such thing as loving two people? I don’t know. I don’t know if it’s possible. But for me, I just feel like that. I don’t want to hurt either or. It’s me. I’m not trying to be a player. My mama raised me differently.” - IOL
