Rihanna & Chris Brown Would Like To Be Close Again

I have to blame this on Rihanna’s youth and naiveté. The New York Daily News reports according to a friend, Rihanna and Chris Brown aren’t fans of the no-contact clause of the assault ruling.

“They think it’s unnecessary and ridiculous,” says a mutual pal of the protection order handed down at Tuesday’s criminal proceeding, during which Brown pled guilty to one count of felony assault in the February attack that left Rihanna battered and bruised. “After [the proceeding], Ri and Chris talked on the phone for almost an hour and really worked at becoming friends. They’re solid now.”

However, their friend is quick to dismiss a renewed romance. “That’s 100% done,” says the pal. “They aren’t looking to hook back up again. They’re both moving on and going their separate ways.”

Well it’s good to know that they aren’t completely stupid.
