Just a day after Chris was sitting sideline at a basketball game with Karrueche, he played in a charity basketball game while Rihanna watched from the sidelines! HollywoodLife.com was there to see the awkward night go down!
What does it take to reunite Chris Brown and Rihanna? A charity basketball is the answer. The exes both attended the Summer Classic Celebrity Basketball Tournament on August 21 at Barclays Center in NYC — and came very close from running into one another. At least the game was all for a good cause! It was sponsored by STK and all proceeds went to CC Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation and Robinson Cano’s RC22 Foundation.
Rihanna Avoids Chris Brown
Rihanna waltzed into Barclays Center looking stunning with her security team and friends (including Cara Delevingne) a few minutes into the first quarter of the game. The announcers actually interrupted the game — while Chris was playing — to announce that she had entered the arena and everyone cheered. However, Chris didn’t flinch and kept focusing on playing basketball.
During the game, RiRi looked happy and was laughing and cheering during the game! Even when he had the ball right by her courtside seats, the two didn’t even look at each other! However, Chris was also in great spirits and looked happier and healthier than ever!
Now this is the first time we’ve seen Chris and Rihanna in the same room in over a year — their brief reunion in May 2013 — so it’s pretty crazy that there wasn’t even an interaction! However, Chris has just gotten back together with Karrueche Tran,while Rihanna has been spending her free time with Drake again! Neither of their new flames were at the game, though!
Chris & Rihanna — Will They Be Friends?
We can’t imagine a world where Chris and Rihanna are strictly BFFs, but now that Chris and Drake have buried the hatchet and are recording music together, it is a possibility! However, HollywoodLife.com exclusively told you that Chris thinks that he “could have Rihanna” if he wants her!
“He‘s not mad [about Drake],” a source close to Breezy told us exclusively. “If that makes Drake happy, you know, go for it. Chris isn’t really concerned about Drake being with his ex. He really thinks everyone should be happy and if Drake is trying to be content with that, more power to him. It’s none of Chris‘ business and hedoesn’t feel jealous. For starters, hecould have Rihanna if he wanted her.”
Well, I’m not sure that’s the attitude to base a friendship off of. Either way, it’s great that Rihanna and Chris both put their differences aside for a good cause!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Chris and Rihanna become friends? Or should they just stay civil? Let us know!
