Is Rih Rih back with Breezy?

Is Rih Rih back with Breezy?
Is Rihanna back with Chris Brown? Looks like it. The two have just collaborated on 2 remixes- of each other's songs-with the videos expected soon! I've always felt that Rihanna still held a torch for this dude. All those post-Chris Brown relationships were just 'rebounds'  You could say the same foar Chris Brown. This, after the now infamous 'Rihannagate'!
Moral of the story-you'll never be able to figure out matters of the heart. It's more complex than Chinese arithmetric!

It is cheaper than hair transplant, and barring unforeseen problems, I see this method becoming popular and making this company very rich. Click here for more of this story.
