Fans may disapprove of the rekindled romance between Rihanna and Chris Brown, but the Barbadian singer’s own family is hoping she’ll walk down the aisle with her one-time abuser, Celebuzz has learned.

“The family wishes she’d marry him — we’re just waiting for that day to come,” a source close to Rihanna’s clan said. “It’s true love.”

That’s not all. Commenting on Brown, who pleaded guilty to assaulting the “Diamonds” singer in June 2009 after a Grammy night fracas, the insider said, “We love him like a son.”



This isn’t the first time those close to 24-year-old Rihanna have spoken out in support of her romance with Brown: her father gave his blessing to the couple just two months ago.

“I hope one day she will get married,” Ronald Fenty told Life & Style. “Everyone adores Chris. He’s a super guy.”

The pair have had a famously rocky relationship since the L.A. assault, and the roller-coaster ride has only gotten bumpier in recent times. Just last week, Rihanna fanned the flames of breakup rumors when she Instagrammed a photo with a caption about being single; on Dec. 19, she tweeted a photo of an empty bed.

A day later, 23-year-old Brown also took to Twitter, posting an intimate photo of the duo together — but within minutes, the “Don’t Wake Me Up” star deleted the image.

If fans thought the Rihanna/Brown relationship was finally over, they were wrong: On Christmas Day, the two were spotted snuggling up courtside at a Lakers game.

So what’s Rihanna’s attraction to Brown?

The family friend answered that question with a question — and one that some may find a bit ironic: “Do you know when you have a dog and it goes away and comes back?”
