Rihanna, Chris Brown Relationship Reminds Pop Star Of Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown (REPORT)

Rihanna and Chris Brown have been rumored to be back together for months, and these days it's almost certain the entertainers are a couple once again, but according to new reports Rihanna's view of their relationship is more than a little alarming.

HollywoodLife reports that Rihanna has been telling friends that her romance with Brown reminds her another famous couple -- Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. A source revealed to the website that Whitney and Bobby's song "Something In Common" perfectly describes her feelings for Chris.

“Their relationship is like the early Whitney and Bobby day. Ri was watching Bobby and Whitney’s “Something In Common” video the other day and said ‘This is just like Chris and me. For real though, that’s the type of fun we having right now. I love Whitney. She was my girl. Can’t nobody do it better than her," the source told HollywoodLIfe, adding that you can see her relationship with Chris is "real love ... like ain’t no bullshi**ng. The s**t is magical and it’s real.”

Of course the comparison between the two couples is rather unsettling if it's something Rihanna is romanticizing. The 24-year-old "Diamonds" singer was brutally beaten by Brown in 2009, and Whitney and Bobby's relationship was not without its own violence. In 2003, Bobby was charged with misdemeanor battery for hitting Whitney and reportedly threatening to “beat her ass.”
