Here we go again.
According to the tabloid, “The on/off again lovers have been spotted kissing on the yacht of Malaysian billionaire Taek Jho Low off the shore of St. Tropez on July 22.”
And two days later, claims the mag, the exes “met up once again along the French Riviera for an intimate dinner in Monaco.”
In Touch says that although Brown is traveling with his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, he and Rihanna were “secretly sneaking away all week to spend time alone.”
Uh… if Brown was really going to have a fling with Rihanna abroad, why would he bother to bring his girlfriend along for the trip?
And if the former couple was actually spotted together on these two public occasions, why are there NO photos of their alleged dalliance?
In Touch, like the other careless outlets that floated these rumors all last week, have no answer to either question.
The problem is the tabloids and blogs don’t care whether their stories make any logical sense — they just see racy reports and immediately regurgitate them.
Gossip Cop, on the other hand, once again checked in with Brown’s rep, who tells us emphatically that the Rihanna hookup rumors are “all lies.”
