He's OK'd her reunion with Chris Brown

They’ve been growing close for months and, while the showbiz world is desperately hoping that Rihanna, 24, sees sense before making her reunion with abusive ex Chris Brown official, it seems there’s one person on her side – her pastor.

Bishop Vibert Lowe has finally given the singer his blessing, but he’s advised that Chris, 23, should go for counselling.

Speaking exclusively to Now, Bishop Lowe, 64, says: ‘She’s a woman and she’ll know what’s best for her.

‘I believe she really loves the man.

‘If she thinks she should get back with him then it’s up to her. I don’t want to make a judgment of her.

God says if you don’t forgive people then God won’t forgive you.’

The couple split in 2009 after Chris brutally attacked Rihanna on the eve of the Grammy Awards.

Let’s hope Ri-Ri doesn’t put all her eggs in one basket because last Tuesday Chris was seen with his ex Karrueche Tran, 24, who he dumped on 4 October.

Karrueche was seen leaving his LA mansion, while Chris emerged separately.
