Rihanna and Chris Brown were seen eating in different restaurants in New York's famous Broadway district, fuelling reports they have rekindled their romance.
The couple - who were banned from meeting by a court order after Chris pleaded guilty to assaulting her last month - ate on opposite sides of New York's famous Broadway, in the city's theatre district, on Tuesday (28.07.09).
Gossip website Radar reports: "Rihanna was seen at the Cipriani Downtown Restaurant while Chris looked glum while waiting in his car after dinner, across the street at Via Dei Mille Restaurant."
Chris reached a plea bargain for attacking the Barbados-born beauty before his case went to trial.
Under the terms of the agreement, Chris is the subject of a restraining order which sees him banned from coming within 50 yards of the 'Umbrella' singer.
If he is found to have violated the terms, he might lose the plea bargain - which saw him receive five years probation and 180 days of community labour rather than any jail time - and be charged with a misdemeanour.
It has been reported that Chris will only be found to have breached the order if Rihanna complains to police.
Earlier this week, it was claimed Rihanna and Chris had stayed at Manhattan's Trump International Hotel and Tower.
A source said at the time: "The two spent the weekend at the same luxury Midtown hotel under a cloak of secrecy.
"They spent the next two days coming and going in separate chauffeured vehicles. The two appear to have taken great measures to avoid public exposure."
