According to The Sun, Rihanna is keen to show her nearest and dearest how much Chris has changed and has booked him, his Mother and her family into a five star Barbados resort over the New Year.

A source told the paper: "The more the public criticise Rihanna for getting back with Chris, the more determined she is to do whatever she wants.

"While no one else can understand it, she's convinced that Chris is the love of her life and her soulmate and that they're simply meant to be together.

"She's booked him and his mum into a five-star villa in Barbados over New Year so they can all get some downtime with her family."

Rihanna and Chris Brown famously ended their relationship in 2009 after her assaulted the 'Umbrella' singer the night before the Grammy awards.

So we can't imagine Rihanna's family welcoming him with open arms.

Still, stranger things have happened.

The couple however are determined to prove once and for all that the ordeal is behind them.

The source added:"They're unrepentant and they want to show the whole world that they've moved on from what happened in 2009."

Well even if Rihanna's family is able to forgive Chris Brown, we doubt they'll be able to forget in a hurry.
