Rihanna has reportedly been in contact with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The Te Amo singer, who was assaulted by Brown before last years Grammy Awards is said to have spoken to Chris over the telephone.

A source told heat magazine: “It’s been almost a year since they last spoke, but Rihanna felt like she could try to be friends with Chris again.”

“Seeing how emotional he was on set [at the BET Awards] really touched her. She’d never seen him like that before.”

They added: “Chris told her that he felt like he’s grown up in the past year. He’s said he’s so happy to be back in touch with her.”

“They were each other’s first love and he’s missed her so much. Rihanna knows that if he wanted him back, he’d be there in a second.”

Despite being allegedly in contact with the I Can Transform Ya’ singer again, the pair have not been in touch since Brown was sentenced to 180 days of community labour and given five years probation for attacking Rihanna.

The couple are said to have exchanged a few text messages since their telephone conversation with a pal of RiRi’s claiming she is keen to meet Brown face-to-face.

However, under the terms of Chris’ probation, he must stay at least 100 yards away from the singer for five years.
