The Talk That Talk singer is rumoured to have rekindled her romance with Chris - who she split from in 2009 after he admitted assaulting her - and she has fuelled the speculation about a reunion after apparently booking them a swanky villa on the island for the festive season.
The Sun reports that the star is hoping to show her family and friends that the RnB singer has changed his ways.
A source said: "She's booked him and his mum into a five-star villa in Barbados over New Year so they can all get some downtime with her family."
The insider went on: "The more the public criticise Rihanna for getting back with Chris, the more determined she is to do whatever she wants. While no one else can understand it, she's convinced that Chris is the love of her life and her soulmate and that they're simply meant to be together."
Rihanna recently insisted she was still single, but the rumour mill went into overdrive when she tweeted a picture of Chris in bed a few days ago.
The snap appeared to show the shirtless singer sprawled face down on a bed on a Simpsons Duvet, with other paraphernalia from the animated series visible, and was headed "Bart Obsessed".
