Los Angeles - Rihanna has been bonding with Chris Brown's mother over dinner.
The Diamonds singer who recently rekindled her relationship with the 23-year-old R&B star despite the fact he is still on probation for assaulting her in 2009, was spotted bonding with his mother Joyce Hawkins last week.
A source told HollywoodLife.com: "She's been reconnecting with Joyce and they had dinner the other day. They talked about life and what's important in life and of course you know they talked about Chris. I ain't about to get into specifics about what their conversation was about but I know Joyce loves my girl and always thought highly of her."
'It was good times'
Rihanna, who is currently recording her new album Unapologetic in Los Angeles, was reportedly thrilled when Joyce reached out to her and invited her to dinner as she views her as a close friend.
The insider said: "Joyce is in town spending time with Chris before his tour and she reached out to Rihanna and invited her to dinner. Rihanna ain't turning momma Joyce down and she's glad they got together again. It was good times.
"They were laughing the entire time, talking about the old days and talking about her music and Chris' music - they had a bomb time. They kicked it like young girlfriends," the source claimed.
"I know Joyce gave her so advice about Chris and told [her] Chris loves her so much and RiRi was like 'Yeah, I know' and they just bonded like two bad bitches."
