Rihanna and Chris Brown have sparked further confusion about their relationship after the 'Diamonds' hitmaker posted a picture of the rapper/ singer lying topless in bed.

They used to date officially a few years ago before Brown was arrested and convicted of assaulting her after a heated argument and ordered to do community service and take counselling. Though he is still on probation for the incident, the pair have appeared to be on and off throughout the year. He was dating model Karrueche Tran when Rihanna made a well publicized confession on Oprah Winfrey's 'Oprah's Next Chapter' show saying that she was still very much in love with her former abuser. The pair dated briefly dated and Brown ditched Ms Tran, but he was apparently back together with her when the topless photograph emerged. 

'All alone in my big ole jet!!! See u soon lover' was the first of several ominous Tweets from Rihanna which she posted on November 21st when her 777 Tour was over. She was then reported to be spending Thanksgiving with him the next day and the couple were seen at a bar in Germany where Brown had been performing on the 23rd. The second telling Tteet Rihanna posted included a photo of her 'lover' lying face down, half-naked on a slept-in double bed on top of his Bart Simpson jacket with the caption 'Dis n***a....... #BartObsessed'. She also posted a picture of herself without a top on and with her back to the camera yesterday which begged the question: Who took the photo?
