Brown and Rihanna split up after the R&B star brutally assaulted her in February 2009 en route to a pre-Grammys party.
He was sentenced to five years’ probation for the attack, which left Rihanna bloodied and bruised.
She recently confessed to TV chat show titan Oprah Winfrey that she still loves her ex, saying: “I think he is the love of my life. He was my first love. Now we’re very close friends. And that’s not anything we’re going to try to change.
“It’s awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me.
“I have to maintain it and suppress it. When you don’t understand those feelings you can make a lot of mistakes.”
