So, Rihanna and Chris Brown are a few publicity stunts away from officially announcing that they’re back together. Yes, they are almost certainly definitely maybe a couple again. That is sad.
There have been sightings of the two together for months now, but last night they were spotted making out at a club in the Meatpacking District (nothing good ever comes of the Meatpacking District!). It gets worse:
Five minutes later, Rihanna, who had been partying with pals at Catch, walked in [to Griffin] with her friends. A source told us: “They sat two tables away from each other. Chris made his way over to Rihanna. He raised his shirt and was dancing promiscuously. Then they started dancing together and hugging and kissing in front of everyone.” Then, observers saw them go into the bathroom together, and when RiRi emerged, “She seemed a little ruffled” a source said. We’re told the pair, who broke up after Brown hit Rihanna during a fight before the 2009 Grammys, partied together until 4 a.m., when he left with his pals and she split five minutes later. A Griffin rep declined comment.
Multiple witnesses saw them kiss. Then they ran off to spend “20 minutes” in the bathroom. Alternatively, Power 101.1 DJ Suss-One was DJing that same night and said of the bathroom story, “That was a blatant lie.”
Brown was spotted the next day, emerging from Rihanna’s hotel.
This is all especially interesting, considering Brown has a still-on longterm relationship with a woman named Karrueche Tran, which probably explains her cryptic tweets from early Tuesday morning. Namely: “There’s a difference between a man and a boy.”
Reps for both singers haven’t commented.
