Rihanna and Chris Brown partied at the same club at the same time for the second time in as many days, leaving within minutes of each other.
Video has emerged of Chris Brown and Rihanna leaving Avenue nightclub in New York.
TMZ reported the pair was in the club together for around 30 minutes and Chris Brown spent some time with Rihanna at her table.
Sitting in different booths, the couple still “kept a close eye on each other” – and Chris Brown sent her over two bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne.
A video surfaced yesterday of the pair leaving the club minutes apart.
The lovelorn pair has been linked together several times already this year, after it emerged that they had recorded songs with each.
And of late wherever Rihanna is, Chris Brown isn’t far behind, as they party at birthday celebrations and nightclubs in West Hollywood.
The sighting comes after another sign that Rihanna is paving the way for a reconciliation with singer Chris Brown, as the raunchy singer reportedly invited the singer to attend a basketball game party on Saturday with her family.
Rihanna and Chris Brown joined her family – including grandfather Lionel Braithwaite on Saturday at an intimate gathering at Jay-Z’s New York club 40/40 to watch the Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics.
A source told The New York Post: “Rihanna arrives 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.”
On Saturday night, however, it seemed the two were more than just friends.
They were allegedly sitting together on the same couch, rooting for the Heat.
Chris Brown’s girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran, was not there.
Asked about reconciliation rumors, a rep for Chris Brown said: “Chris is very happy in his relationship with his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.”
Meanwhile, sources told The Post Rihanna’s management is calling the rekindled friendship the “Chris Brown issue”.
“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 told the newspaper.
“It’s like she is testing the water – first they work on music together, then they hang out in a friendly way, so the public won’t be completely shocked when they step out together publicly.”
Chris Brown infamously left Rihanna bruised and bloodied after assaulting her ahead of the Grammys in 2009.
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 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.”
