*The seating chart for tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards has leaked online, and already there are conflicting reports about the exact location of Rihanna, Chris Brown and Drake.


WENN is reporting that Rihanna and Drake – who were recently romantically linked to each other – have been placed side by side in the front center position at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

E! News, however, says Rihanna and Brown are both seated in the front row just seven seats apart – with the guys of One Direction and Pink seated between the one-time couple. And to Rihanna’s other side will be her BFF Perry with Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Taylor Swift.

Rihanna caught sleeping during rehearsals for her 2012 MTV Video Music Awards performance.

Tension between Brown and Drake hit a high mark in June when their beef sparked a brawl at New York’s W.i.P. nightclub. Champagne bottles were thrown and Chris accused Drake of hiding in the toilet.

Rihanna is scheduled to open the show tonight, with Taylor Swift, Green Day, Pink, One Direction and Lil Wayne also in the performance lineup.
