On-off couple *Chris Brown *and *Rihanna *spent Christmas Day together courtside.

The pair, above, took in the Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks basketball game at California's Staples Centre on Tuesday.

Although there was no great public display of affection or confirmation the singers are dating again, they seemed happy to ring in the holidays together and left the game holding hands.

Despite reports linking Brown and Rihanna, who split in 2009 after he assaulted her on the eve of the Grammy Awards, the Umbrella singer suggested she was single in a tweet posted on December 18.

Brown reportedly split from model girlfriend *Karrueche Tran * earlier this year because he had strong feelings for his ex after working with her on a handful of songs in the studio.
