Chris Brown is sending Rihanna some birthday love. Taking to Instagram, the R&B crooner posted a childhood photo of his ex-girlfriend with an all-caps message.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY @badgalriri,” he wrote.
The b-day greeting comes just a couple of weeks after Brown suggested that they go on tour together, along with Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.
His message was greeted with mixed reactions from fans. While some were happy to see the caption, others noted their tumultuous history, as Brown assaulted Rihanna in 2009. Last year, Brown addressed the issue in his Welcome to My Life documentary. “That’s gonna haunt me forever,” he said.
Happy Birthday @Rihanna
