The support from Chris Brown has been well received by Rihanna’s fans, who appreciate the positive and encouraging words from someone who knows her well.
Chris Brown has shown his support for his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, who recently took the stage for a much-anticipated performance at the Super Bowl. The pop star and fashion icon, who has been in the music industry for over a decade, was one of the star of the halftime show, which is considered one of the most important events in the world of sports and entertainment.
The Grammy award winner brought red to the stage a mash-up of her most memorable hits. The show was sprinkled with fresh takes of “Bitch Better Have My Money”, “Rude Boy”, and “We Found Love.” She was accompanied by an entourage of dancers dressed in all white and finished the set floating on a platform in the middle of the arena.

Back in 2009, Brown was under fire for physically abusing Rihanna, and was charged for felony assault. After serving a 5-year probation, RiRi has claimed to forgive the “With You” singer. Brown has since been showing support for his ex, often taking to social media. Most recently, he posted to his 132 million Instagram followers a story with the caption “GO GIRL,” followed by a red heart and the praying hand emoji.
KANYE WEST INFLUENCE?
In conclusion, Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance was a triumph, and her songs produced by Kanye West, shows just as a testament to the impact that his music has had on the industry. The support from Chris Brown is a testament to the positive and encouraging relationship that the two artists have built in the years since their breakup, and serves as an inspiration to others who are working to heal from past relationships.
After the announcement of her first pregnancy, Brown also took to Instagram stories to write “CONGRATULATIONS.” The ambiguous post was made clear with the pregnant woman emoji. In Opera Winfrey’s podcast, Rihanna reflected on her in Brown’s relationship, stating “we’ve been working on our friendship again.”

Some people believed Riri should have cut out some of singles that had influence from Kanye. In recent times, he has been a controversial figure. Chris Brown speaks on cancel culture perhaps being a reason we will never see him perform at the huge sporting event.
“When are you [performing] at the Super Bowl we need you at the next one!!!” a fan commented under the singer’s post. Brown answered, “Never shawty.. American media AINT FA me. Rather be where I’m welcomed.” This comes months after it was rumored that Brown’s American Music Awards tribute to Michael Jackson was axed at the last minute. It was a performance that was reportedly also set to feature Ciara. Rehearsal footage was later shared on social media.
Yup! The main population won’t know the music outside of us but it would be a SHOW. I could see her and Chris Brown doing it together.

Meanwhile, Brown’s prior controversy with Rihanna hasn’t been his only hiccup. There have been several lawsuits and allegations of sexual misconduct—and the singer has denied each as they have arisen. In 2017, Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran was granted a restraining order after alleging he abused her. Regardless of his past, Brown’s fans have agreed that he should go where he’s appreciated.
