Rihanna and Brown began dating when they both became famous and started to make money. Rihanna consistently used her superficial, unearned fame to pull rank over Brown and Tran in what is an uncool superiority complex. She used that same fame to get Brown back from Tran on different occasions.
When someone cares for and loves you when you have nothing, whether it be a friend or significant other, that’s real. That’s a true litmus test in a friendship or relationship the person has passed with flying colors. When people like or chase you because you are or have become rich and famous, you don’t really know that’s real. It could be real, but in quite a few cases it’s not. There’s no other way of putting it (I’m not accusing Chris Brown of this, but I’ve seen it happen to a number of people and it’s very insincere).
