Rihanna Single and Bikini-Clad in Barbados

Rihanna is in the Barbados and, oh, she’s wearing a bikini—Not the worst news I’ve ever heard. 

The “We Found Love Singer” has found her way to her home island country just in time for the holidays. And—sorry, kids—it looks like she’s flying solo on this trip.

Photos from the tropical getaway show RiRi, lounging poolside in a skimpy, spaghetti strap bikini as she slurps on a brew. 

The songstress is renting out a 10-bedroom waterfront mansion that sleeps up to 20 people, a move that is costing her about $9,000 a night. 

And, while she can’t seem to hide from the encroaching eye of the paparazzi, Rihanna is doing just fine when it comes to keeping out of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown’s sight.

It was rumored that RiRi and Brown were set to get hitched over the New Years holiday, which—in some gossip-fueled universe—could still possibly happen, I guess. 

The UK’s The Sun is reporting that Breezy posted a photo of himself wrapped up with Rihanna as she kisses his cheek. Brown’s scandalous shot hit the Internet on Thursday, but was reportedly deleted just 15 minutes later.

(Because we’re WAY too invested in how this love affair ends up, we can confirm that—based on the Bajan’s wardrobe—the photo was NOT taken today, but instead in the early part of Decemeber when RiRi was visiting Brown during his tour stop in Paris.)

Hollyscoop did some Internet-prowling and discovered that, as of Wednesday, Brown was stationed in Cape Town, South Africa for a performance; a continent away from his former lover. He has no other shows scheduled overseas, so technically he could jet off to reunite with RiRi in her homeland at any minute.

Throwing a wrench in that theory is a HollywoodLife.com report that Brown’s other ex, Karrueche Tran, is also in South Africa with him.

It’s all a little too much to handle, or even stomach. We’ll keep you posted if Rihanna and Brown actually get married. In the meantime, just enjoy how good she looks in a bathing suit.
