3 Celebrities, Including Rihanna, Who Work With Their Exes

Posted by Katie F. on February 21st, 2012

There’s really no reason for Rihanna to have contact with Chris Brown after he was convicted of assaulting her in 2009, let alone to work with him. Still, Brown is featured on a new remix of Rihanna’s single “Birthday Cake.” It is also rumored that Rihanna will be featured on a remix of Brown’s song “Turn Up The Music.” The former couple’s apparent friendship isn’t helping quell rumors that they’re working together and even that they’re hooking up again. Brown supposedly attended Rihanna’s early birthday party last week. Yesterday was the singer’s actual 24th birthday and Chris made sure to send birthday wishes her way – he tweeted “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!” to Rihanna, who later responded with “Thanks!” Then, late last night they tweeted about each other’s songs that they worked on. Rihanna is currently rehearsing in Britain and attending shows at London Fashion Week while Brown is in Miami with girlfriend Karrueche Tran to celebrate his recent Grammy win. Rihanna is getting a lot of criticism for being in contact with ex-boyfriend Chris, but are they just reuniting to make music together? Is something more going to come of recording together?

Rihanna may be setting a bad example by going back to the man who beat her, but some other celebrity couples that had calm breakups are now civil exes. Here are a few former star couples that split but still work together peacefully.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony have both admitted that they’re trying to figure out how to handle working together on the set of their reality show “Q’Viva! The Chosen.” The former couple is figuring it out though and stated that neither of them ever thought about not working on the project. Anthony says the reality series shows that he and Lopez are “just meant to be in each other’s lives on different levels.”

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake dated for almost 4 years before breaking up in 2007, but the couple has continued to work together since the split. They starred together in the 2011 film Bad Teacher. Timberlake said it was easy to film the movie because they dated, claiming that they trusted each other more than they would other stars. Diaz admits they still like each other and that she had a “blast” with the film.
