Rihanna and Chris Brown back together, working it out

Rihannachrisbrown Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together?

What?

Yes, you read that right. People.com is reporting that just three short weeks after Brown, 19, allegedly battered his "Umbrella" girlfriend on Feb. 8, they are working things out.

Awwww. Should we cue Tina Turner's "What's Love Gotta To do With It?"

Maybe they're just working out their respective stories, getting things straight so that both of them can come out of this mess looking OK and with salvaged careers. 

"They're together again. They care for each other," insists People's source, adding that the back-on lovers are together at one of Sean "Diddy" Combs' luxurious homes on Star Island, in Miami.

Why is Combs involved and giving safe haven to this relationship? What happened to Rihanna's mentor, Jay-Z? Wasn't he gonna lay some whupyouknowwhat on that boy?

Brown reportedly called Rihanna on her 21st birthday last week.  "He called to wish her happy birthday," a source told the magazine. "They've reached out to each other. It's been mutual."

According to the New  York Daily News,
Brown has been re-wooing Rihanna with jewels, designer shoes, a handbag and the video game "Guitar Hero."

"It doesn't matter what he buys her, though," said the NYDN source. "She loves him. For his part, he knows he screwed up and he is going to try like hell to make sure it doesn't happen again."

Rihanna's father, Ronald Fenty, has told Us Weekly that said he's OK with the couple getting back together. "I love my daughter with whatever road she takes. I'm behind her win or lose. I will be supportive."

Are you surprised Chris and Rihanna got back together? And so soon? Are you happy, shocked, sickened or sad?
