So much for love and basketball when it comes to Rihanna and Chris Brown.

Although the two attended Game 4 of the NBA Finals to see the L.A. Lakers play the Orlando Magic in Orlando, they couldn’t have been more divided, reveals an NBA insider. 

Rihanna held court with her girlfriend while Brown also bonded with a friend, but neither were not seated in close proximity of one another nor did they communicate. During halftime they each  retired to two separate lounges.

This is only the second public union of the pair who have been estranged since Brown’s alleged assault on the pop princess on Feb. 8 (the first hookup was  at Diddy’s Miami digs for a weekend where they allegedly reconciled).
