Did Diddy Reunite Chris Brown, Rihanna?

Chris Brown and Rihanna may be together again, thanks to the guidance of hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs.

People magazine reported this weekend that the two pop stars had reunited and reconciled after a Feb. 8 incident in which Brown allegedly beat and bruised his pop star girlfriend. They've reportedly been spending time at Diddy's mansion on Miami Beach's Star Island.

Photographers snapped pictures of Brown riding a Jet Ski and driving a car during the weekend. Rumors that he partied Saturday night with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian were dismissed by Kardashian Sunday, who wrote on her blog that she was with a friend who looked like Brown. According to "E! News," not only is Brown focusing on his relationship with Rihanna, but he's also recording new music.

Pictures of Rihanna in Miami have not yet emerged. Rihanna's dad, Roland Fenty, spoke with People about his daughter's reported decision to get back together with Brown, noting that though he hasn't spoken with Rihanna since her birthday last week, "Whatever road she chooses, I'm behind her."

Representatives for Brown, Rihanna and Diddy did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com's requests for comment.

50 Cent 'Shocked' by Brown's Alleged Abuse

Three weeks after allegedly beating and bruising his pop star girlfriend Rihanna, and days before his potential court arraignment, Chris Brown remains quiet -- but that's not stopping members of the hip-hop community from weighing in on the pre-Grammy awards incident and the future of his career.

In an interview with ABC News, rapper 50 Cent described his reaction to the photos of Rihanna's swollen, cut face released last week. He joined the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z and T.I. in opining on the incident.

"It's past what would happen in a traditional dysfunctional relationship, just a little more," he said. "She was beaten past someone hitting a person out of anger that they couldn't control at the moment. It's like a man fighting another man versus a man fighting another woman.

"It was shocking. It was more than I could do," added 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson.

The rapper is no stranger to domestic drama. Last year, his ex-wife accused him of trying to burn her and their son to death after a suspicious fire ripped through their Long Island home.

"Fiddy" went on to talk about the future of both stars' careers. Brown, 19, was considered a triple threat prior to the alleged altercation. He sang hit songs ("Kiss Kiss," "Forever"), danced circles around the competition (with moves comparable to those of Usher and Michael Jackson) and made inroads into the acting world ("The O.C." and "Stomp the Yard.")

Rihanna, 21, is one of the pop music world's biggest stars. She's racked up five Billboard No. 1 singles in a four-year-long career and serves as the face of ad campaigns for Gucci and Cover Girl.

Of Brown's career, 50 Cent said, "I don't want to say it's over, but it will be different. ... He can't have that clean-cut image anymore.

"I don't think he should say anything right now. Like the apology statement he put out ... there's no way the public will embrace that," 50 Cent added.

As for Rihanna, 50 Cent hopes she'll get back to the tour circuit and recording studio soon.

"I don't think she needs to hide. She didn't do anything wrong," he said.

Brown, Rihanna Remain Quiet

But apart from canned statements from their PR reps, both stars have kept their mouths shut.
