Chris Brown and Rihanna's whirlwind romance came to a tragic end in 2009. Since then the two have talked about each other in the public eye and have rarely been seen together — until recently. See this timeline of their romance and friendship.
The twosome appeared to be comfy and in good spirits at a Clive Davis' pre-Grammys party in Los Angeles on February 8, 2009. The fight between Chris Brown and Rihanna was prompted when she read a three-page text message from another woman on Brown’s phone. Authorities said Brown reacted by hitting her head against the passenger window. He then continued to drive while punching her with his right hand, according to reports.
