Rihanna had just won an award for Video of the Year for “We Found Love” and approached Brown as she returned to her seat.
“Rihanna goes directly up to Chris Brown and throws both arms around her ex-boyfriend in a mutual embrace,” an eyewitness stated. “After giving a quick hug to his neighbor, Rihanna also snickers and tousles Chris’ newly bleached hair in a playful manner.”
Rihanna and Chris split in 2009 after he beat her during an argument about a text message from another girl. There have been rumors the former couple were back together, but Brown is often seen with model Karrueche Tran.
Just last month, Rihanna sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview, telling the host, “I truly love him. And the main thing for me is that he is at peace. I’m not at peace if he is unhappy or he is still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds peace.”
Rihanna also admitted she and Brown have maintained a “very close friendship” since the restraining order dropped.
Brown landed the award for Best Male Video on Thursday for “Turn Up The Music.”
But, what we all want to know is are they back together?
One person that has to be unhappy with the show of affection last night is Karreuche Tran.
Tran took to Twitter on Thursday to post a cryptic message that reads “TREAT YOUR GIRL RIGHT,” which seems to be directed at Brown.
Chris wasn’t originally even planning to attend the awards show but did after a request from Rihanna.
