Rihanna and Chris Brown have reunited…musically that is. The former couple, who split in 2009 following Brown’s assault of the Barbados singer, has teamed up for remixes of “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music.”
The collaboration has been met with mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. Some see it as a positive union, including Gossip blogger Perez Hilton who tweeted,
“I think it’s a beautiful thing. People grow and move on and #heal! Let us approach this from a place of compassion and spreading love!”
While others view the collaboration as troubling.
Alan Hilfer, chief psychologist at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, told ABC News, “It is always a little worrisome to see an abused woman readmit her abuser into her life. This is, however, quite common and we often see women willing to forgive men for some of the awful things that they have done.”
