“Chris Brown and Rihanna in many ways look about as typical as a couple can look. Matter of fact, it’s how a lot of couples look after a few years of being together. In this picture though it goes beyond that. Here they look comfortably uncomfortable with each other,” said heavyweight Manhattan psychotherapist Jonathan Alpert
Alpert took a few minutes off from a busy schedule, which at times includes the Today Show and a weekly column, to analyze the courtside body language of singers Chris Brown and Rihanna. The young noteworthy couple has had their share of well documented difficulty. However, lately they have been spotted out and about. Rihanna and Brown were spotted court side at a Lakers game on Christmas.
”A lot of times couples just get used to each other and tolerate the other person. This might very well be the case here with Chris Brown and Rihanna. Furthermore, he is entirely focused on the game and she isn’t at all. She seems so disconnected from the game that she is falling asleep and he seems okay with that,” said Alpert, whose penthouse office enjoys a view of the Empire State Building.
