Rihanna has reportedly become obsessed with Chris Brown. The more she sees of him the worse it gets, according to a new report. She dwells incessantly on their on-off relationship to the point that she is neglecting everything else.

The Barbadian singer has talked about her feelings for Brown, whom she calls her “first true love.”

But her rekindled relationship is not only igniting the passion she once felt for him, but also the insane jealousy and possessiveness that led to their blowout in 2009 on the eve of the Grammy Awards.

The fight that led to Brown’s brutal assault began after Rihanna found text messages from another woman in the 23-year-old’s phone. The argument ended with Rihanna battered, bruised and unconscious.

While much has been written about Brown’s anger management issues, which he continues to grapple with, less has been said about Rihanna’s own insecurities that fuel her sharp temper, jealous rages and need for constant attention.

To make matters worse, Brown continues to associate with his purported ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. His actions have reportedly driven Rihanna to the edge and Rihanna is increasingly desperate to hold on to him, a friend told the UK’s Grazia magazine.

“When Chris is messing her around she loses all interest in normal life,” the friend said. “She doesn’t look after herself and she acts out.

“She’s always on edge, texting Chris constantly; it’s like there’s no one else in the world who she’ll listen to.”

Rihanna is reportedly worried that Chris could cheat on her, or go back with Tran and it’s eating her up inside, the source said. Late last month, Brown and Tran were spotted having dinner together and both attended the same LA store opening. Brown made a video “love letter,” saying he loved both of them.

“His game playing is so confusing for Ri,” the friend told Grazia. “She simply doesn’t understand why he needed to see Karrueche.”

Brown is set to kick off a tour of Europe and South Africa on Nov. 14.
