Rihanna fans have blasted her ex Chris Brown after he appeared to congratulate her on giving birth to her first child.
The 34 year old Diamonds hitmaker welcomed a baby boy with her rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky, 33, on 13 May, according to TMZ.
While she and Chris, also 33, may have a complicated history, it didn't stop him from taking to his Instagram stories to share a message seemingly to congratulate the pair on their newborn bundle of joy.
Writing over an orange background, Chris said: "Congratulations," alongside a praying hands emoji, a red heart emoji and a pregnant woman emoji.
Chris' message sparked fury amongst Rihanna's fans as they flocked to Twitter to slam the star on his actions. "Chris Brown subliminally telling Rihanna congratulations on IG is top tier toxicity," one person wrote.
Another said: "Chris Brown has absolutely no business congratulating our Queen Riri on her baby’s birth," as a third shared: "The problem with Chris Brown “congratulating” Rih is that he’s NEVER shown that energy with his own children’s mothers."
Not everyone was of the same opinion though as one said: "I don't see anything bad with @ChrisBrown to congratulate @rihanna for their 1st born with @AsapRocky!!"
While another posted: "Why so many people got an opinion on Chris Brown congratulating Rihanna & Rocky? They don’t have to be stuck in the past because you are, damn!"
Chris and Rihanna first met back in 2005, but it wasn't until two years later that they embarked on a relationship.
In 2009, the rapper was charged with assault and making criminal threats after attacking Rihanna before the 51st Annual Grammy Awards – where she was scheduled to perform.

In early 2013, the pair rekindle their romance as Rihanna told Rolling Stone at the time: “I decided it was more important for me to be happy… Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake.”
But the pair went their separate ways for good by April of the same year.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have known each other for over a decade but it wasn't until 2020 that they made a go of their feelings for each other.
In an interview with GQ in 2021, A$AP declared: "I think when you know, you know. She's the One," while she gushed over him in an interview with Vogue the following year: "I just feel like I can do any part of life by his side.”
The pair are now proud parents to a baby boy after reports they welcomed their first child together.
