Rihanna is reportedly "determined to do whatever she wants" with Chris Brown.
Chris was convicted of violently assaulting the Diamonds singer in 2009 but the stars have been working on their friendship in recent months. The pair have even collaborated on a duet for Rihanna's new album Unapologetic entitled Nobodies Business (sic).
Many people are outraged that Rihanna is becoming close to her abuser again, but she doesn't seem to care.
"The more the public criticise Rihanna for getting back with Chris, the more determined she is to do whatever she wants," a source told British newspaper The Sun.
Apparently Rihanna is convinced that her relationship with Chris is divine.
"While no one else can understand it, she's convinced that Chris is the love of her life and her soulmate and that they're simply meant to be together," the source detailed.
"She's booked him and his mum into a five-star villa in Barbados over New Year so they can all get some downtime with her family."
It is rumoured that Rihanna and Chris will duet at the Grammy Awards next year, nearly four years to the day after the assault took place.
