Rihanna and Chris were spotted at a Miami Heat game at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York this past weekend.
They arrived separately but Brown later joined Riri and her grandfather and cousins.
“Rihanna arrived 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. They sat on the same couch together rooting for the Heat. There was no sign of his girlfriend,” a source told the New York Post.
The two left separately but later reunited at Meatpacking club SL.
However, they tried to maintain a distance, even though Brown sent over two bottles of champagne at one point.
“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,” an insider told the New York Post.
“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.”
“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.”
