Chris Brown joined a lot of other people wishing Rihanna a happy 30th birthday on Tuesday.
His message to his ex, shared with his 42 million Instagram followers, received a mixed reaction from fans.
The US singer posted a picture of Rihanna as a baby – similar to one she later posted herself – and wrote ‘happy birthday’ alongside it while also tagging the star.
