Rihanna slammed for cuddly pic with ‘lover’ Chris Brown

London: Rihanna has sparked outrage among fans after she shared a sexy picture cuddling with on-again boyfriend Chris Brown, despite the fact that he is currently on probation for being violent towards her when they were dating in 2009.

She posted the picture on her Instagram page with the caption: “[Chris] i dont wanna leave!!! Killed it tonight baby!!!”

After just two hours of being online, the photo received more than 200,000 “likes.”

And if this cuddly snapshot wasn’t enough to spark controversy, she posted another photo with the phrase: “Home is where the c*ck is.”

Fans of the Barbadian singer were livid after her open forgiveness of the man who viciously assaulted her three years ago.

“Rihanna, why have you forgiven him? Once a scum bag, always a scum bag,” the Mirror quoted one user as tweeting.

Another added, less poetically: “Aaaaarrgghghhhhh! DON’T DO IT!”
