After a week-long gentleman’s intermission from Twitter, Chris Brown is back.

The controversial performer, who deleted his Twitter account last week following a feud with comedian Jenny Johnson, has reactivated his account. Brown’s timeline of tweets is gone, but the account is restored and he’s maintained his 11 million–strong following.

Brown hasn’t publicly commented on his absence, but he is still posting pictures to his very active Instagram account. On Sunday, he posted a shot of himself with Rihanna, all but confirming reports that the two are back together.

Classy as always, Brown has a cigarette poking out of his mouth while Rihanna, wearing a lacy bra, is draped in a camouflage blanket. “What would music today sound like if these kids didn’t exist?” wrote a humbled Brown on the picture. It’s amazingly racked up more than 203,000 likes in 24 hours.

MTV News notes the background picture of Brown’s Twitter account is from his current world tour. The biography passage might signal a change to a more PR-angled direction for the account. “Keep it here for all things Chris Brown, updates from the tour and more,” it reads.

#TeamBreezy, a Twitter-based group of Brown fanatics and defenders, is welcoming the news that their overlord has returned.

“@chrisbrown is officially back on twitter!! welcome back love! #TeamBreezy,” tweeted Aian G.
