Rihanna seen here palming the head that butts her has requested seating next to her ex(?) love Chris Brown.  Something tells me this is less about romance, and more about extending a sympathetic olive branch to get his career jump-started again. Waiting on the pics so we can check that body language!!

From People.com:

At Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Orlando on Thursday night, the real action will take place in the stands: Rihanna and Chris Brown will be there together, according to a source.

“They requested to sit together” at the matchup featuring the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Orlando Magic, says the source. Before the game, Rihanna was spotted at a nearby T.G.I. Friday’s.

Reps for the NBA and the singers had no comment.
