Chris and Rihanna at Jay-Z concert Wednesday night
The announcement comes on the heels of reports that Chris and Rihanna have been all over New York City together this week. The two were photographed together at Jay-Z's Barclays Center concert.
This should put to rest any speculation about whether or not the former couple would be getting back together. At this point it's only a matter of time.
Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 says the two deserve each other.
"Obviously I hope everything works out for Chris Brown and Rihanna. I hope they have no problems. However, evidence suggests that won't be the case," Rosenberg said on "The Realness" this morning. "Let's be real guys and this is why I'm over it... they deserve each other. They're both young, they're both immature, they love horrible tattoos. This is a couple that's meant to be together. So people like me as much as we think it's the wrong thing - there's nothing to do but sit back and let them make the mistakes and learn for themselves. So Godspeed Chris Brown and Rihanna. Or as you'll forever be known, Chrihanna."
