American recording artist and actor Chris Brown and on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran are reportedly back together.

After reports emerged about the Say Goodbye singer's love child, the 26-year-old model announced her split with Brown by declaring she did not want "baby drama".

Last month, Tran opened up about their latest break-up in an emotionally-charged interview with Fix My Life coach Iyanla Vanzant, which aired on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

According to a report in Hollywood Life, the 25-year-old Loyal singer and Tran have reunited and are taking it slow.

"Chris and Karrueche are back together and taking things slow," a source told the website. "And she's back to wearing his rings again."

Reports that the two are back together started on 30 April, when Tran uploaded a picture of two dogs that reportedly belong to Brown, on Instagram.

"Chris and Kae have been talking and texting again. She tried so hard to put him out of her life and move on but in the end she just loves him too much to say goodbye," another source said.

Last year in October, Brown had appeared on Hot 97s Ebro In The Morning radio show and expressed his love for Tran.

When asked how long they have been together, he replied: "Almost five years. Four and a half. She's straight I dig her, I dig her man, She's dope.

"I feel like especially being in this industry you need someone that understands you and understands who you are personally except for your name.

"You don't have to be buying them bags, let me stunt on you right quick. Although I do it because I love her, but that don't come with the territory, at the end of the day we have a real connection as best friends on top of our intimacy," he added.
