Chris Brown is out here publicly thirsting over Rihanna on Instagram.

On Friday (September 19) the "Don't Check on Me" singer tried to flirt with his ex-girlfriend after the "Work" hitmaker posted a photo of herself posing in lingerie from the latest Savage X Fenty collection.

Brown clearly liked what he saw and decided to comment on the photo, “I wanna be the lamp," he wrote referencing the lamp beside Riri in the snap. He then followed that up with both a shocked emoji and a smirking one.

But as expected, Rihanna fans are not happy with Brown, who has slid into his ex's Instagram comments on more than one occasion. Plus, considering the former couple's history, he has no business trying to get her attention.

The two dated from 2008 to 2009 but broke up after he physically assaulted her. The whole ordeal was one most talked-about moments at the time and Brown eventually pleaded guilty one count of felony assault. He was ordered to serve up to five years of supervised probation and six months of community service.

These days, Rihanna is happily dating billionaire businessman Hassan Jameel, while Brown is reportedly expecting his second child with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris.
