Rihanna and Chris Brown are rekindling their romance, according to reports of the two spotted kissing at a New York City nightclub Tuesday morning (Oct. 2).

The pop stars, who ended their relationship in 2009 after Brown unleashed a brutal beating on the Talk That Talk creator on the evening of the 51st Annual Grammy Awards, appeared together at Manhattan hotspot Griffin. The former couple were apparently kissing on the club's dance floor and took their makeout session to the bathroom, witnesses revealed to the NY Daily News.

Brown and RiRi reappeared 20 minutes later. However, DJ Suss One, who spins records at Griffin on Monday nights, denies that the singers hooked up. He had both entertainers in his sight during the night. "That was a blatant lie," he says of their rumored romp in the stall.

The "Turn Up the Music" crooner was also caught leaving the Gansevoort Park Hotel late Tuesday afternoon. Rihanna is staying at the location while visiting New York City.

Karrueche Tran, Brown's girlfriend, was nowhere in sight at Griffin. On Tuesday, she posted a note to her Twitter account that would indicate she heard the news of her man and his ex-girlfriend getting close. "there's a difference between a man and a boy," she wrote. "I prefer men."
