It’s been quite a rocky road for ex-lovers Chris Brown and Rihanna, but it looks like the two may be headed for peaceful terrain. After apparently falling out over Twitter a few weeks ago, Brown and Rihanna were recently spotted partying at the same nightclub and the two are reportedly secretly hanging out.
According to the NY Daily News‘ Page Six, on June 9, Brown was partying at Manhattan hot spot with his girlfriend, Karreuche Tran, when Rihanna and her friends showed up and partied right next to Brown and Tran.
So what did Brown do with his ex partying just a few feet away from him? Well, surprisingly he took the high road and sent her two expensive gifts.
A source says, “After Chris made his way into SL with a group of friends, Rihanna pulled up with her own group of friends. The infamous exes sat far enough from each other to not be able to talk, but close enough to keep an eye on one another. Chris sent Rihanna two bottles of Ace of Spades champagne. DJ Sinatra had both Rihanna and Chris dancing at their tables.”
And though many might assume Tran would be upset by Rihanna’s presence, she may have been the one to come up with the idea of sending over the expensive bottles of champagne.
She tweeted, “kill ‘em w kindness.”
This is the second time in two weeks that the former couple have been spotted partying at the same club. Last week, the two were seen at West Hollywood club Greystone Manor where sources claim that Rihanna and Brown and Tran “shot dirty looks” at each other throughout the night.
And though things may be publicly tense between the two, Page Six is also reporting that Brown and Rihanna are “seeing a lot of each other in private.”
Aside from partying near each other at SL, Brown reportedly also joined Rihanna and her family at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club to watch the Heat beat the Celtics.
“Rihanna arrived first in a yellow cab, with her family and friends, and was escorted to a private room. Brown arrived a little later and joined her and her family,” claimed a source. “They sat on the same couch together rooting for the Heat. There was no sign of his girlfriend.”
After the game, Brown left, leaving behind Rihanna and her family to watch the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight.
According to a source, Rihanna is torn about how to handle the situation with Brown and her Roc Nation management team is apparently fed up with trying to keep the two apart.
“Everyone in the business assumes she and Chris are getting back together, and it is only a matter of time before they’ll be more public about it.
The source added, “There is also a tug of war at Roc Nation over the final say on what she is doing. But everyone agrees they can’t control Rihanna and can’t stop her [from] seeing Chris, no matter how much they fear the negative public reaction will be. It means she probably won’t release another album this year, for fear of a backlash.”
Only time will reveal if Brown and Rihanna eventually reunite. But if they do, they certainly won’t be the first couple to do so. Check out some other famous on-again, off-again couples below. –nicholas robinson
