Rihanna has apparently been talking about making her relationship official with Chris Brown and marrying him.
According to reports, the 'Diamionds' songstress has told her friends that she wants to elope with the 23-year-old singer now he is a single man.
A source close to the singer told Star magazine: "No one close to them would be a bit shocked if they suddenly eloped. Rihanna has told her close friends point blank - I would marry Chris."
The informed insider also revealed that the Roc Nation songstress would have stood by the 'Celebration' singer after he assaulted in 2009 if the scrutiny from the media hadn't reached fever pitch.
''She even says she would have never left him if the media scrutiny didn't get so bad. They're passionate, and when they're drunk, they've both made many comments about getting married.''
It was rumoured this week that Chirs paid off his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran in a bid to make things right and because he wants to set her up financially.
