Rihanna split from Chris Brown in 2009

Rihanna is reported to have hung out with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown while holidaying in the south of France over the weekend.

Chris, 23, is said to have visited Ri-Ri after flying to Nice by private jet and taking a helicopter to St Tropez, where he rented the world's ninth largest yacht.

'Chris is staying on the yacht next to Rihanna's,' a source tells The Sun.

'It was a last-minute trip, but Chris wanted to see Rihanna. They have this weird addiction to each other and can't seem to stay away.

'They've been through a lot, but still have strong feelings for each other.'

Chris was given community service for violently assaulting Rihanna, 24, in 2009 but it was clear that she'd forgiven him when he featured on her track Birthday Cake earlier this year.

The singer fuelled the new rumours that she's hooked up with Chris after she posting a series of cryptic Tweets.

'Touch down baby, help me pick out my fit,' she wrote.

'#3words lastnight was beautiful.'

Chris's camp deny he and Rihanna arranged a rendezvous.

'CB is in France to shoot a music video,' they explain. 'Karrueche [Tran] is there with him.'
