Rihanna, Chris Brown Come Face-to-Face at Charity Basketball Game: Picture
Ooh na na — what's going on here!? Exes Rihanna and Chris Brown came face-to-face as they both attended CC Sabathia's and Robinson Cano's Summer Classic Charity Basketball Game at the Barclays Center in NYC on Thursday, Aug. 21.
The former lovebirds didn't appear to have much interaction during the event, but Rihanna did play spectator to Brown's gaming skills. The "Diamonds" singer, 26, sat courtside with a few female pals — including Cara Delevingne — as she watched Brown and others battle it out for a good cause. She dressed casual in shorts, a comfy sweatshirt and added a pop of red lip.

25-year-old Brown, meanwhile, cracked a smile a few times while playing ball in a red jersey. Before calling it a night, he even snagged a photo with Yankees captain and shortstop Derek Jeter.
One night earlier, the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer looked affectionate with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran at the USA basketball game against Dominican Republic at Madison Square Garden in NYC. "@karrueche damn near 5 years and this woman still putting up with my s--t," Brown wrote via Instagram at the time. "Need to have this baby and stop playing!"

Rihanna and Brown famously dated for two years before Brown was charged with assault against the Barbados native in February 2009 following the 51st Annual Grammy Awards in L.A. Rihanna supported Brown at his court hearing, and after some time apart, they controversially got back together in January 2013. Their on-and-off relationship finally went kaput for good when Brown confirmed in May 2013 that the pair split during an interview with Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie Show.
