Chris Brown and Rihanna Reportedly Reconcile at Diddy's Miami Home

March 2, 2009 9:06 AM ET

Three weeks after an alleged pre-Grammy dispute between Rihanna and Chris Brown resulted in the "Umbrella" singer suffering from "horrific" wounds and Brown's arrest, the couple reportedly reconciled this past weekend at Diddy's Miami house, Us reports. Rihanna hadn't seen Brown since the February 8th incident, laying low in California and Mexico, but according to sources, Brown began calling Rihanna on her 21st birthday, the same day the photo of a battered Rihanna leaked out.

"They're together again. They care for each other," a source from the Brown camp told the magazine. "While Chris is reflective and saddened about what happened, he is really happy to be with the woman he loves." The pair haven't been photographed together yet, but shots of Brown jetskiing near Miami's Star Island have emerged.

As Rock Daily reported, Brown began taking anger management classes last week in an effort to repair his image, but a reconciliation with Rihanna is perhaps the only way the 19-year-old R&B star can save his career after being dumped from commercials, radio stations and the promotion of his upcoming film Bone Deep in the wake of his arrest. In fact, E! reports that Brown is already back in Miami's Hit Factory studio working on new music.

Legally, however, Brown isn't completely out of the woods yet: the Los Angeles District Attorney hasn't officially charged him with any crimes stemming from the altercation, but the LAPD is still gathering evidence and Brown could face charges even without Rihanna's cooperation. It would be difficult for prosecutors to secure a conviction without Rihanna's testimony, since all reports up until now haven't indicated the presence of other witnesses, though.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
