Ever since the February release of Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix featuring ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, rumors have swirled claiming that the pair were back together years after their very public split following Brown's domestic abuse charges in 2009. After months of "Are they or aren't they," a new report is claiming Brown gave Rihanna an emerald ring—three emeralds, one for each year they were apart—during a recent romantic vacation in the south of France. Can't say were totally thrilled about that idea.

We spoke to Chris Brown's rep to try and set the record straight. Here's the full report: "Chris and Rihanna are friends, but they do not have a romantic relationship. Chris is in a wonderful relationship with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran." 

So that's (apparently) the true story—Chris Brown and Rihanna: just friends.
