Rihanna Kisses and Hugs Chris Brown at VMAs

At the 2012 MTV VMAs, an unexpected occurrence happened: After winning Video of the Year for “We Found Love” Rihanna walked up to ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, kissed him on the cheek, and hugged him right by the VMA stage.

The couple broke up in 2009, after Brown physically assaulted Rihanna. Brown pleaded guilty and wounded up receiving five years probation and 14,000 hours of community service. But since then, rumors have persisted that the two young stars had gotten back together, despite both Rihanna and Brown being in very public relationships.

In August, during an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter, Rihanna shed tears as she admitted that she “truly love[s]” Brown, adding that since the restraining order was repealed, the two have been close friends. —XXL Staff (@XXL)
