(Newser) – Drama alert: Chris Brown recently started following ex-girlfriend Rihanna on Twitter, and she followed him back. Would be typical behavior, were it not for the fact that Brown beat Rihanna in 2009. A fan recently called Rihanna on the development, noting that she "better not" reunite with Brown. Rihanna, who apparently did not realize at the time that the fan in question is just 14 years old, responded (woeful spelling all hers): "its f***in twitter, not the alter! calm down."

The fan quickly apologized, according to the Hollywood Reporter, causing the singer to respond in kind. "babygirl I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt or offend u!" she tweeted. "Just needed to make it clear to the Navy! I still Stan for u xoxo." In other celebrity-related Twitter news, the Independent reports that Lady Gaga has become the first person to amass more than 10 million followers on the social networking site.
