Chris Brown, 33, has attracted criticism from Rihanna, 34, fans after congratulating the pop star on the birth of her child.

The Umbrella singer is reported to have welcomed her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky, 33, prompting Chris to celebrate the news on social media.

Rihanna was in a turbulent relationship with Chris from 2007 to 2009, which hit the headlines when the rapper was charged with assault and making criminal threats after attacking the RnB star before the Grammy Awards, where she had been scheduled to perform.

The pair reunited for a short period in 2013, despite Chris still being under probation for the violent incident.

Chris, 33, took to his Instagram story to congratulate his ex following reports of the birth.

He posted the word "congratulations" along with praying hands, red love heart and pregnant woman emojis.

The well wishes sparked a fierce backlash from Rihanna's fans on social media.

One person on Twitter wrote: "Chris Brown has absolutely no business congratulating our Queen Riri on her baby’s birth."

A second commented: "Chris Brown subliminally telling Rihanna congratulations on IG is top tier toxicity."

Another added: "The problem with Chris Brown 'congratulating' Rih is that he’s NEVER shown that energy with his own children’s mothers."

Others defended the gesture, with one person posting: "I saw nothing wrong with what Chris Brown congratulating Rihanna … she forgave him and he probably will never forgive himself for that day, but he is maturing and he moved on from being in love with her may he never forget the times he had with her tho."

Another wrote: "I don’t understand how Chris brown congratulating Rihanna is a problem for some people."

Rihanna has been embracing her changing body during her pregnancy by flaunting her growing bump in bikinis and figure-hugging dresses.

She was last seen in public on May 9 at a lavish dinner with A$AP Rocky at a swanky restaurant in LA.

The couple have been in a relationship since 2020 and announced they were becoming parents together for the first time in January.
