Chris Brown and Rihanna have been spotted getting close at a New York club in the city's Meatpacking district, reports The New York Daily News.

Months of tentative flirting, public support and a surprisingly amicable friendship between the pair has culminated in rumours that they're getting back together, after Brown and Rihanna were supposedly spotted kissing at a club. "They were hanging, but not too touchy," says a member of one of the duo's entourages who was at the club. "They could tell they were being watched. Anything that was going to happen, wasn't going to happen in the club." Maybe things weren't going to happen in the club, but in the club's bathroom? Apparently. Witnesses told [email protected], "People saw them kissing," on the dance floor and backed up the reports that they disappeared into the bathroom for at least 20 minutes. What's more, Brown was also spotted leaving the Gansevoort Park hotel, where Rihanna is staying, on Tuesday afternoon (October 2nd 2012).

We can't say we didn't see this coming. When the Rihanna twitter page burst into support of the Christ Brown drugs trial after he tested positive for cannabis and got away with it, the signs that this pair aren't finished were abundantly clear. Many fans won't understand it, given their chequered history, but it looks like Brown and Rihanna could be gearing up for another whirlwind romance.
