Rihanna fans are furious after Chris Brown sent a message of congratulations following the birth of her son.
Reports began circulating this week that the Umbrella singer and A$AP Rocky had welcomed their first baby into the world earlier this month.
Obviously, the news got Rihanna's fans very excited, but it also saw her ex share his best wishes through his social media channels.
Rihanna and Brown dated for several years, with the rapper charged with assault and making criminal threats after he attacked her before she was due to perform at the Grammy Awards in 2009.
Speaking about the incident later on, Brown admitted punching Rihanna with a closed fist, busting her lip.
But he took to Instagram and shared the word 'congratulations' along with praying hands, a pregnant woman and red love heart emojis – and the gesture did not go down well with a lot of people.
Sharing their anger at Brown's message, one user said: "The problem with Chris Brown 'congratulating' Rih is that he’s NEVER shown that energy with his own children’s mothers."
Another blasted the singer, writing: "Chris Brown has absolutely no business congratulating our Queen Riri on her baby’s birth."
"Not Chris brown telling Rihanna congratulations lol," put a third.
Another commented: "Chris Brown is sooo messy. Why did he post congratulations to his story after news broke that Rihanna gave birth."
But not everyone thought Brown was so out of line for sending a message to his ex.
"I saw nothing wrong with what Chris Brown congratulating Rihanna," wrote one.
"She forgave him and he probably will never forgive himself for that day, but he is maturing and he moved on from being in love with her may he never forget the times he had with her tho."
Another added: "Chris Brown congratulating Rihanna and A$ap is everything."
It was announced that the couple were expecting back in January, as Rihanna posed in a stunning photoshoot to unveil the growing baby bump.
A$AP, real name Rakim Mayers, had been spotted with Rihanna, who had been showcasing 'a fashionable' way of displaying a baby bump.
Rocky had previously gone on record to share his desire of becoming a dad one day.
He told GQ last year: "[It’s] in my destiny, absolutely. I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very."
