Los Angeles: R&B star Rihanna`s representative has denied she is back with ex-flame Chris Brown.
Recent reports suggested that `Umbrella` hitmaker and ex-boyfriend Brown have been keeping in touch and that Rihanna was keen for a face-to-face meeting with Brown despite his 2009 assault to her.
Rihanna and Brown`s back-in-contact reports were first run by Britain`s Heat magazine. According to the mag, she had spoken to Brown over the telephone after seeing his emotional performance at the BET Awards in late June, Gossip.com reported.
"Seeing how emotional he was on set (at the BET Awards) really touched her. She`d never seen him like that before," a source said as quoted by the magazine.
"Chris told her that he felt like he`s grown up in the past year. He`s said he`s so happy to be back in touch with her. They were each other`s first love and he`s missed her so much. Rihanna knows that if she wanted him back, he`d be there in a second."
Because of his domestic violence against Rihanna, Brown has been ordered to remain 100 yards away from her and 10 yards at public events.
Post their split, Rihanna is currently dating a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Matt Kemp, while Brown has been reportedly dating model Jasmine Sanders after he posted pictures of them together on his Twitter page in early June.
However Rihanna`s representative has blasted the stories, telling the website that the stories are absolutely "not true."
