(Newser) – Rihanna isn’t ready to confirm she's back on with Chris Brown, for fear of fan backlash, reports Bang Showbiz. The singer told a pal, “I’m too ashamed to go public yet.” And not just about her relationship—don’t expect Rihanna to mention anything about the case at all. “"She will not be publicly commenting on the photo of her beaten up. She desperately wants the whole situation to go away,” a source says.

“She understands fans are worried about her and genuinely appreciates all their love and support, but she just wants to forget about the incident with Chris.”
