Well, this is awkward! Rihanna showed up at a Hollywood hotspot with her rumored new guy, Karim Benzema, only to find out that her famous ex Chris Brown was partying there, too!
Blast from the past? While Rihanna, 27, enjoyed yet another night out with her new flame, Real Madrid soccer striker, Karim Benzema, 27, they were in for an unexpected surprise when they showed up to party at Hooray Henry’s on June 19, and RiRi’s old flame Chris Brown, 26, was there! Umm..awkward?
When you’re enjoying the beginning stages of a new romance, the last person you want to see is your ex! Unfortunately, Rihanna knows all about that. When she arrived at the Hollywood nightclub only a minute apart from Karim, Chris was already partying at the venue! If it’s any consolation for RiRi, she looked smoking hot. We don’t blame Karim or Chris if their eyes were on her! The “BBHMM” singer stunned in a deeply v-cut pinstriped blazer with no top below, which put her cleavage on full display. That’s one way to get the attention of your new and old flames, that’s for sure.
While Rihanna and Karim have been turning up the heat lately, Rihanna still feels a strong and emotional connection to Chris, whom she dated from 2008-2009 and from 2012-2013. Though their relationship did not end well either time, it’s hard to forget someone you loved. Meanwhile, Chris remains single after his recent public screaming match with Karrueche Tran, 27, which even Rihanna was dismayed to hear about.
Chris Brown: Not Over Rihanna?
Through thick and thin, Chris has also carried a soft spot for Rihanna, and even when he began dating Karrueche, he wasn’t over her, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned. Sadly, Karrueche found out the hard way.
“He’d be texting back and forth with Rihanna, but Chris told her it ‘wasn’t anything serious.’ He was a little disrespectful because one time when he picked her up, he had one of Rihanna’s songs blasting in the car. Even worse — Rihanna still had clothes and personal items at Chris’ house,” an insider told us.
Luckily, it seems like there was no drama that went down between Chris and Karim at Hooray Henry’s, and that everyone enjoyed their night out!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Rihanna felt awkward with Chris and Karim in the same nightclub? Let us know!
