On Christmas Day, Rihanna and Chris Brown boldly went where they haven't gone for a long time: out in public together. The two were very visible in courtside seats Tuesday as the Los Angeles Lakers took on the New York Knicks in a holiday game in downtown L.A. The two could be seen cheering and sipping drinks, with Rihanna occasionally whispering in Breezy's ear and draping herself onto him in a serious public cuddle. She was also wearing what appears to be her new favorite piece of jewelry: a gold collar necklace believed to be a gift from Brown.

Rihanna dresses provocatively -- it's the perennial dog-bites-man pop music story. And the Barbados-born singer certainly lives up to that reputation in a new GQ feature , posing for its cover wearing, well, not a whole lot. But the actual article has a more novel tidbit of information, gleaned as the singer flacks her sultry and simmering new album, "Diamonds. " Writer Jay Bulger (in his first GQ feature - that's a heck of an assignment!) trails Ms. Fenty for a night of clubbing and along the way gets her first candid comments about the infamous Chris Brown-Drake brawl that erupted at a New York nightclub in June.

An attorney for Chris Brown said Saturday the singer did not take his mural of monster characters down from a wall outside his Hollywood Hills home because of pressure from the city, but simply because he is gearing up to sell the property. Mark Geragos, Brown's attorney, said there have been erroneous reports that the entertainer took the mural down because of a lost appeal. It had nothing to do with the city, Geragos said. The mural earned notoriety after some of Brown's neighbors complained about the 8-foot-tall, neon-colored figures with goofy eyes and big fangs painted on an exterior wall of his Hollywood Hills home.  Brown was given a citation by the city.

Chris Brown and violence have crossed paths yet again, this time with performer Frank Ocean in the mix as well. The incident reportedly happened Sunday night outside Westlake Studio on Santa Monica Boulevard. "got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there," Ocean tweeted late Sunday, referencing his dog, Everest. "cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys. " According to TMZ sources, however, Brown wasn't the one who started it. When Brown, who'd been listening to another artist, went to leave the studio, Ocean and his people blocked him in, the website's sources said.

Chris Brown won't be charged in a "robbery by sudden snatching" case from February, in which he was accused of taking a woman's cellphone after she tried to snap a picture of him as he left a Miami nightclub in a black Bentley. No evidence was found that Brown intended to steal the phone or deleted any photos, one of which would be needed to make a case for robbery or theft, according to a memo released Friday by the Miami-Dade County state attorney. The phone - which was snatched or dropped in Brown's ride before it was tossed out the window, depending on which of the many witnesses' stories are to be believed - ultimately wound up in the possession of Devon Blanche, the head of security for Tyga, another rapper who had just performed with Brown at the Cameo club in Miami and was also leaving.

Chris Brown rejected a plea deal Wednesday related to his October arrest on suspicion of felony assault in Washington. His bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, did the same. Breezy and Hollosy were taken into custody after they were allegedly involved in a fight with another man outside the W Hotel around 4:30 a.m. Oct. 27. Though they were arrested on felony assault, the charges were later reduced to misdemeanors. Brown appeared in court Wednesday with attorney Mark Geragos. Breezy refused the deal, his attorney said, because he did nothing wrong, the Associated Press reported.

When celebrity egos clash, things can get ugly. Could that help explain the brawl that allegedly took place between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean involving a dispute over a parking space at a West Hollywood recording studio? L.A.

A sheriff's spokesman, Steve Whitmore, said it wasn't yet clear whether the reported incident "rose to the level of an alleged assault.

Posing well is the best revenge.  Especially if you're Rihanna and you've grabbed the cover of the latest issue of Vogue. There she kneels in a barely there red dress, lips parted, in a field of ... amber waves of grain? What's up with that? Some sort of reference to "America the Beautiful" to fit the autumnal election season?  We won't bother trying to suss out the mind-set of Vogue's art director, because what you really want to know is what the singer has to say about the two men in her life: Chris Brown and Robert Pattinson.
