Rihanna is reportedly planning to take Chris Brown back to her native Barbados in a bid to win over her friends and family.
She is said to have reserved a plush five-star villa on the exclusive Gold Coast area of the tropical island for a “bonding holiday”.
The 24-year-old singer hopes Brown, who beat her in a vicious assault in 2009, will be able to convince her close circle that he’s a changed man, the Sun reported.
And the Umbrella hitmaker wants to persuade them that she was right to take him back. She has also planned for Brown’s mother to fly out so the two families can spend time together.
“The more the public criticises Rihanna for getting back with Chris, the more determined she is to do whatever she wants,” the paper quoted a source as saying.
“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. 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. But they’re unrepentant and they want to show the whole world that they’ve moved on from what happened in 2009,” the source added.
