Rihanna and Chris Brown are rumoured to be enjoying a short break together.

The on-again/off-again couple – who reconciled in recent months even though the 23-year-old ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ singer is still on probation for violently beating her in 2009 – has sparked speculation they boarded a private jet to spend a few romantic days together ahead of Chris’s upcoming tour after issuing a series of mysteriously similar tweets.

The 24-year-old ‘Diamonds’ singer wrote on her twitter: ‘B***h I’m phresh out the runway #UNAPOLOGETIC (sic)’ on Saturday (03.11.12) shortly before he tweeted a picture of himself and a few friends in front of a private jet.

According to HollywoodLife.com Chris may have invited her to join him for a weekend away before his tour of Europe and Africa starts later this month as the couple have both been extremely busy lately and he wants to do whatever it takes to keep her happy while he is away.

A source said: ‘[Chris will] miss Rihanna. I know they will talk all day and text back and forth. Then, [he’s] going to get back home and have a $5K cell bill. It’s cool though. To him, Ri’s worth a whole lot more, so he ain’t tripping.

‘That’s his girl and they’re talking and trying to squeeze in as much time together as possible before he jets out of here.’

Chris – who is due to start his tour on November 14 – is due back in Los Angeles tomorrow (05.11.12) to launch his new charity the Symphonic Love Foundation.

A lot has happened in the 14 years since Brandy and Monica charmed the world with their Grammy-winning teen rivals hit “The Boy is Mine.” Now they’re back with a new duet – ”It All Belongs to Me” is out now — and are both mothers.

Brandy’s daughter Sy’rai, 9½ (dad is her ex, producer Robert Smith), has the talent to follow in Mom’s footsteps, but the singer isn’t ready to let her — yet.

“She’s into her school work and her education but singing is all she does, watching videos and making up routines,” Brandy, 33, tells PEOPLE. “I’m seeing the signs, but I want her to hold on a little longer and have a regular childhood.”

“Rodney is a drummer,” Monica, 31, explains of her eldest son (dad is her ex, rapper Rocko Hill). “He is only 6½ and is in the third grade. He wants to go to college like [my husband] Shannon and he’s serious about musical intent — he plays his drums daily and asks for lessons.”

“He asked me, ‘Can you call Travis Barker and have him come give me drum lessons?’” says Monica, who recently ran into the Blink-182 drummer at an awards show and showed him a video of her son playing during his school talent show.

As for her youngest? “My 4-year-old [Romelo] is everything from an acrobat to a soccer player. He is a live wire! He’s sociable like me, a free spirit — all over the place!” she laughs.

And with both Brandy and Monica in loving, committed relationships (Brandy’s dating music publisher Ryan Press; Monica wed NBA star Brown in November 2010, they hope to become mothers again.

“Oh yes,” says Brandy. “Absolutely,” adds Monica, who hopes for “maybe two or three” kids with her husband.

Till then, both are planning play dates at Chuck E. Cheese, hoping to hit the road together this summer and relishing their renewed friendship.

“I just feel blessed,” notes Monica, whose album New Life is out April 10. “We had to get here as people first before we could do anything musically [again] and be the artists that we are, the mothers that we are.”

Brandy, who plans to release a new record this summer, sums it up: “We are ready to sing!”

For more on Brandy and Monica’s lives now and their last moments with their friend Whitney Houston, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

Ne-Yo (R&B Star) Bring Christmas Gifts To Abused And Neglected Kids (Story & Photos)

Topic: Ne-Yo aka  Shaffer Smith

Five hundred kids screamed when singer Ne-Yo walked in on their holiday party on a recent Saturday bearing gifts and a message of hope.

“This is the first famous person I actually met,” exclaimed Tha Banks, 16, with a huge smile. Banks, a sports fan, got a new football autographed by the R&B superstar.

Banks isn’t Ne-Yo’s typical fan — he and the other teens at the party are part of Florida’s foster care system, all seeking a life free from neglect and abuse.

For the past five years, Shaffer “Ne-Yo” Smith has visited underprivileged children across the country, bringing toys, games, shoes and clothing as part of his charity’s annual “giving tour.”

Ne-Yo and his mother, who is president of his foundation, recently visited six cities in six days, bringing Christmas gifts to more than 3,000 kids at Boys and Girls clubs, group homes and in foster care. He also talks to the children about his personal experiences.

“I grew up pretty much like you all,” Ne-Yo told the teens at the central Florida foster home. “We didn’t have a lot of anything … there was no silver spoon in my mouth.”

A father of two himself, Ne-Yo said he sees his children in the faces of the kids he meets at these events.

“It’s hard for me to fathom any parent that would abandon their kids for whatever reason,” said Ne-Yo, the father of a 1-year-old and a 3-month-old. “That doesn’t compute with me.”

Volunteers handed out the donated presents to every child who attended the Kids House Christmas party.

The holiday party was organized by the Kids House of Seminole County, which cares for 2,300 kids each year between the ages of 3 and 18, including victims of neglect, and others who witness domestic violence, or experience physical or sexual abuse, according to Marcie Dearth of Kids House.

“This is an annual party that kids host every year, but we never have had the celebrity presence that we did this year,” Dearth said, calling Ne-Yo’s visit “a lifetime experience.”

The kids frost cookies and decorate stockings for the holiday season — a tough time for these children, who are separated from their families.

“These events help fill that void, that excitement of the holiday spirit that all kids should have,” said John Cooper, assistant secretary of operations for the Florida Department of Children and Families.

More than 400,000 children are in the foster care system in the United States, according to a 2010 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report.

With about 19,000 kids in foster care, Florida has the fourth-largest number of kids in state care, behind California, New York and Texas, according to the 2010 report.

At the party, volunteers handed out wrapped presents donated by Ne-Yo’s charity, the Compound Foundation; Toys for Tots; Coca-Cola; Mattel; Ubisoft and other corporate partners.

Destiny Molina, 15, unwraps her gift: a box filled with bottles of nail polish.

“You know what’s funny,” she says. “The girls at the other (foster) house stole my other nail polish, and I have been trying to buy it back.”

Ne-Yo signs a football for Tha Banks, 16, who is in foster care.

She turns to her friend to ask what she got.

“Makeup,” replies Karla Hurtado, 16. “Oh that’s cute,” Molina says.

Molina said this was going to be a good Christmas, something that doesn’t happen every year for children in foster care.

“We don’t have Christmases like this all the time,” she said, a little choked up.

Ne-Yo told the room full of kids that he was living, breathing proof that you need to find something that you love to do and “stick with it.” He said something that motivates yet frustrates him is hearing foster kids referred to as “forgotten children.”

“All you need for success is drive, passion and one person to give a damn — to give you a shot,” Ne-Yo said. “And you have a room full of people like that.”

Mercedes Noble, 17, says she was grateful to meet Ne-Yo, who she said seemed to be a real person, just like her.

The tall teen said foster care is not the best place to be at Christmas; everyone would rather be with their families.

Noble said, though, “It’s way better to be here with people who love and care for us than be at home and probably getting beat.”

With a big smile, the teen said, “I appreciate that he took time out of his life and come and show respect to us, kindness — let us know that we are still human, we are still people and we still need love.”
