Speculation of a possible romance between Chris Brown and Nicole Scherzinger is rife, after the pair were pictured getting a little intimate at an L.A club, reports The New York Daily News.

Given the recent Chris Brown drugs scandal, the headline darling testing positive for cannabis whilst on probation, every move he makes is likely to be scrutinized to every degree, and his recent rendezvous with Pussycat Dolls star Scherzinger is no different. The 34 year-old singer has moved to quell the rumours quickly, saying that there was no affection in their intimate movements, rather loud music forcing them to shout in each other’s ears. "They were dancing close for a while and being all touchy-feely and finally Chris leaned into her," a source had told X17online.com. "She put her head on his shoulder and they started kissing! I couldn't believe Chis was being so obvious about it!" But Scherzinger was having none of that: "I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing," her rep told TMZ.

Chris Brown was likely letting off some steam after a tricky few days. His trial has been brought into question of late due to some controversy surrounding his community service, and most recently, his failure of a drugs test. It turned out, though, that testing positive for marijuana didn’t affect his case.
