According to reports Rihanna and Chris Brown were seen on Sunday evening kissing openly in front of other partygoers while partying on the yacht of Malaysian billionaire Taek Jho Low, the New York Daily News has reported. The former couple were allegedly seen kissing in open view of other celebrities attending the yacht party including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Leonardo DiCaprio.
The NY Daily News reported simply that a source has reported to them: "It was a very private party on a yacht, so they were not worried."
Rumors have been swirling over recent days of a possible reunion between the two when Chris Brown was reported to have joined Rihanna on her Saint Tropez vacation. But the news is sure to upset some of her fans, who feel it sends the wrong message for the popular singer to get back together with her former boyfriend after physically abusing her.
The source has also revealed that Kanye West performed a show for the guests on the yacht, showing off some of his newest music. In the final song of his set West is also said to have serenaded Kim Kardashian in front of everyone in an open display of his feelings for her.
The latest news comes just following reports that Rihanna will appear on Oprah Winfrey's show "Oprah's Next Chapter" for a new tell-all interview in the near future. According to those reports Rihanna will meet up with the chat show mogul on August 19 to have a deep discussion about her past, present and future.
That interview is touted to help boost Oprah's ratings on her struggling OWN network, and is sure to draw a large amount of publicity and fans. Oprah, never one to shy away from the questions on everyone minds, is expected to question Rihanna on her relationship with Brown, and especially connected to their past problems. Rihanna and Brown previously split in 2009 following a domestic violence incident which left her bloodied and bruised and saw Brown convicted of assault.
The interview will be all the more interesting given what Oprah has said about the issue before. She previously has said, "Let me tell you why [Rihanna] got back with [Brown], in my opinion if you go back with a man who hits you, it is because you don't feel you're worthy of being with a man who won't. If a man hits you once, he will hit you again. He will hit you again."
