The answer according to Chris Brown reps is, “No”, but the two were at the same hotel (Trump International Hotel & Tower) at the same time for two days, but they did not see each other. According to NYPost the two were having a secret rendez-vous, but the story was later retracted:
On Sunday July 26th, the NYPost stated Rihanna & Chris Brown were using fake names to meet each other, and made it seem like they were running around together:
Just days after Chris Brown publicly apologized for his February beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna, the two spent the weekend at the same luxury Midtown hotel under a cloak of secrecy, The Post has learned.
The pretty “Umbrella” singer and “Run It” crooner — who is barred from seeing his former squeeze by a restraining order issued in Los Angeles — checked into separate rooms at the Trump International Hotel & Tower on Friday, hotel sources said.
They spent the next two days coming and going in separate chauffeured vehicles from the underground garage of the 52-story Columbus Circle building.
And today, NYPost has made it clear that the two were not together, and in fact Chris Brown checked out early in fear of violating his probation:
Brown, under court order to avoid his ex-gal pal, checked out less than two days after both singers ended up in separate rooms of the Trump International Hotel & Tower on Columbus Circle. He split because of the paparazzi stalking the building, a source told The Post.
Rihanna‘s rep confirmed the pretty songstress and Brown were at the same hotel, but insisted they never saw each other.
“It was just a coincidence. She has stayed there before,” said publicist Amanda Silverman, adding that her client had no worries about Brown being in the same hotel.
The stars came out to support the HollyRod Foundation, celebrating it’s 11th Annual DesignCare, hosted by Rodney & Holly Robinson Peete. The DesignCare event benefits those affected by Parkinson’s and Autism:
We started the HollyRod Foundation years ago to help people with Parkinson’s disease – my dad had Parkinson’s and then about five years into the foundation, my son was diagnosed with autism… Much like Parkinson’s, autism is very expensive to treat so we started raising money for the quality of life for people suffering from both because of our personal experiences.

Atlanta police say former professional boxer Vernon “The Viper” Forrest was killed Saturday night when a robbery turned into a gunfire exchange.
The incident began at 11 p.m. at the Chevron on Whitehall Street in Southwest Atlanta when Forrest, 38, stopped to put air in the tires of his Jaguar, said Atlanta Police Detective Lt. Keith Meadows.
A male suspect approached Forrest and robbed him of a few items at gunpoint, he said. Forrest, who was also armed, then chased the suspect to an area near McDaniel and Fulton Streets.
Forrest was shot seven to eight times in the back, Meadows said. Meadows said there is evidence Forrest used his weapon but did not know if the suspect was shot.
Mr. Forrest was 38 years old.
