... when launches her new album - which just so happens to be entitled Unapologetic. Timely.

The pair - who recently reconciled even though he is still on probation for physically assaulting her in 2009 - ire ready to stop sneaking around and will take their reunion public when Rihanna releases her the new album next month.

An eloquent "source close to Rihanna" told HollywoodLife.com: "She hitting the studio real hard these days, but [talks] to Chris every step of the way. As soon as she finishes up with this album, they will be out. She gotta focus and get that album together and stay paid.'[She's] tied up and busy with the album, but she [makes] time for Chris late nights. She did one night before - I think, like, Tuesday [09.10.12] I'm not sure but I know she saw him this week."

Chris recently dumped and cut off all communication with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran over his 'friendship' with Rihanna and posted a video he named The Real Chris Brown via his twitter during which he discusses his very troubling dilemma over the two women.

The source added: "They not talking. Ain't no shade though, he just wants to be done with it and I know Rihanna does too. It's best for everybody, even Karrueche. The last thing he wants to do is get her caught up again." So he just bought her a house instead.
