It has been reported that the family of singer Rihanna are concerned about claims that she has reconciled with former boyfriend Chris Brown.

Reports suggest the couple have reunited just three weeks after Rihanna was allegedly assaulted by the R&B singer.

People quotes a family member as saying "Everyone wants them to take a break, to cool off. No one wants them back together."

The source added: "I'm concerned. I don't want her to make a mistake, and I don't want her to ever go through this again."

Chris Brown was arrested and later released on bail on suspicion of assaulting Rihanna in the early hours of February 8.

Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty recently told Us Weekly that he should support whatever decision his daughter makes.
