'Kiss Kiss' crooner Chris Brown says he's 'not in a relationship' with Rihanna
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Rihanna and Chris Brown both walked the orange carpet at the Kids' Choice Awards. Separately.
"We're not in a relationship or anything," Brown told The Associated Press before Saturday's slime-filled ceremony.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks the R&B singers are dating, but Brown was quick to squash such gossip, insisting he was single and Rihanna was just a friend. The 18-year-old "Kiss Kiss" crooner, clad in a custom-made orange hoodie emblazoned with a blingin' Nickelodeon logo, later collected a trophy for favorite male singer.
Rihanna, 20, bypassed the press line before the awards ceremony, strutting down the carpet in a polka-dot corset top.
