After months of speculation, rumours and various reports, the singer has opened up about their reunion to Rolling Stone magazine, explaining that Chris is now 'different' to the man who assaulted her back in 2009, and says he feels 'disgusted' with his behaviour.
Explaining how she is prepared for the backlash, she said: "When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world. You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it's different now.
"We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s**t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that," she said.
However, the star has insisted that she will leave him if he is ever abusive towards her again.
"He doesn't have the luxury of f**king up again. That's just not an option," she claimed.
"I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility."
She added: "I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
The pair first prompted speculation of a reunion when Rihanna gave a tearful interview to Oprah Winfrey last August declaring that Chris was 'the love of her life'.
Just weeks later he then split from then-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, stating that he 'was in love with two people' in a video posted online.
Until now, neither have publicly commented on the reports they were back together, despite various sightings and numerous pictures they both posted online.
We only hope that this time, for RiRi's sake, the love story has a happier ending.
