Rumors are flying this week as photos taken at an LA night club show bad boy Chris Brown getting up close and personal with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. While initial reports from celebrity gossip site 17 online claimed the two were caught kissing on the dance floor, Sherzinger maintains that the only reason the two appear so cozy in pics is that the club was very loud and they were having trouble hearing one another. A source who was at the club that night said “They were dancing close for a while and being all touchy-feely and finally Chris leaned into her. She put her head on his shoulder and they started kissing! I couldn’t believe Chris was being so obvious about it!” A rep for Sherzinger contacted TMZ shortly after the photos emerged to deny the claims “There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story. The photos that have surfaced are old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club.” Reps for Brown told the same story, denying that the two are anything more than old friends.
