After a long gap, ex-flames Rihanna and Chris Brown will be seen together at the upcoming MTV Awards on September 6. Both have won nominations and are reportedly presenting the awards the same night.

Rihanna and Chris have worked together on a remix version of her song Birthday Cake early this year.

On Rihanna-Chris coming together, a source told “That’s obvious. Hell yeah, she would. [There isn't anything] she wouldn’t do for that [him]. She’d do just about anything for him".


Rihanna still misses ex-beau Chris Brown

R&B star Rihanna has been accused of sending out a dangerous message to other victims of domestic violence after admitting she still "misses" her ex-boyfriend who was charged with assaulting her three years ago.

Rihanna's turbulent two-year relationship with rapper Chris Brown ended after he attacked her on the eve of the Grammy Awards in 2009.

But in an interview with Oprah Winfrey the 24-year-old beauty has said Brown "made a mistake" and "needed help" adding that she misses him.

Charities have criticised the comments claiming they could reduce the seriousness of abusive relationships, reported The Independent.

Vivienne Hayes, chief executive of the Women's Resource Centre, said, "Rihanna's case demonstrates the emotional complexities felt by women locked in abusive relationships.

"Whatever the nature of the argument, [Brown] chose to beat her up. And we need to stop society allowing us to normalise such behaviour."

Brown was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community labour after his attack of Rihanna.

Rihanna, Drake dominate MTV VMAs with 5 nominations each

Rihanna and her ex-lover Drake led the charge at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, picking up five nominations each.

The chart-toppers, who were rumoured to have casually dated recently, will battle it out in the Video Of The Year category for We Found Love and Drake’s Take Care, which features Rihanna.

They will be competing against Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know, Katy Perry’s Wide Awake and M.I.A’s Bad Girls, the Sun reported.

Shockingly, Lady Gaga wasn’t for a single gong, even though her Marry The Night and You And I videos were eligible.

Rihanna is also up for ‘Best Female Video’, ‘Best Pop Video’, ‘Best Choreography’ and ‘Best Visual Effects’, while Drake will be hoping to bag ‘Best Hip-Hop Video’, ‘Best Male Video’, ‘Best Art Direction’ and ‘Best Cinematography’.

The rapper will be going up against his rival Chris Brown for the ‘Best Male Video prize’.
