Brown & Rihanna Are Set For Awkward Night Out
Chris Brown and Rihanna are set for an awkward reunion at an event to honour a songwriter who has worked with both R&B stars.
Andre Merritt, who penned Rihanna's Disturbia and Brown's Forever, is to be feted at an ASCAP Awards after-show party in Hollywood on 22 April (09) - and both former lovers plan on being there to toast him.
If the exes do show up for the Hwood club event, it will be the first time they've been out in public since a late-night fight on 8 February (09) landed Brown in legal trouble and Rihanna in the hospital.
The couple briefly reconciled after the incident, but they are now estranged as Brown awaits a 29 April (09) hearing into his alleged attack on his then-girlfriend.
Event promoter Jamie Barren lists Rihanna, actor Columbus Short and Jesse MCCartney among the confirmed guests, while Brown is listed as "possibly" attending.
