Chris Brown's latest tattoo — the face of a woman sketched on his neck — has been generating comparisons to Rihanna. The woman in the artwork resembles Brown's ex-girlfriend's oval-shaped face, soft cheekbones, and seductive eyes. But according to TMZ, Brown denies any connection between the "Where Have You Been" singer and his new body art.

"His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day Of The Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw," Brown's rep told TMZ. "It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported."
Brown and Rihanna have mended their differences since Brown plead guilty to assaulting her in 2009. In February, they teamed up for two song remixes, Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" and Brown's "Turn Up The Music." Rihanna described Brown as the love of her life during an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on OWN in August. Rihanna and Brown also shared a friendly kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards last week.
Brown, who is dating Karrueche Tan, recently participated in a back to school celebration hosted by the Jenesse Center women's shelter in Los Angeles. He said he would encourage children experiencing hardships to be optimistic. "You can get out of your situation, be positive," he told Extra.
