With Chris Brown, 23, Drake, 25, and Rihanna, 24, all attending the same awards show, there's bound to be some kind of drama at the 2012 MTV VMAs. It's been reported that Chris Brown, Rihanna and Drake will all be sitting near each other in the first row at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Thursday night, All Hip Hop reported.

Even if there isn't any drama that goes down, it's definitely going to be awkward at the least, and MTV isn't helping the situation.
Rihanna recently admitted to Oprah Winfrey during an interview that she still loves Chris Brown and that even after he had brutally beaten her in February 2009 she was worried about his well-being.
"We love each other and we probably always will, and that's not anything that we're going to try to change," Rihanna told host Winfrey, 58.
"I think he was the love of my life," Rihanna added. "He was my first love and I see that he loved me the same way. I truly love him. The main thing for me is he's at peace. I'm not at peace if he's not happy or he's still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace."
As for Brown's response to RiRi's latest proclamation of love, he reportedly just wants Rihanna to stop talking about the incident and move one.
But Rihanna is not the only one with a broken heart in Hollywood -- Drake reportedly once had his heart broken by theBarbadian beauty.
Drake let his glum feelings be known in his songs.
MTV decided to make the situation even more uncomfortable than it already is by putting all the members of this bizarre love triangle in the same row at the VMAs.
According to a source, MTV is hoping that some kind of altercation will take place so that it will boost ratings.
"They are hoping a fight breaks out. Ratings galore," the source told Us Weekly. "Notice Drake and Chris are both up for Best Male Video."
Drama between Chris Brown and Drake came to a head when Drake allegedly sent Brown a message admitted that he was sleeping with Rihanna.
When the two superstars encountered each other a night club, a fight famously ensued on June 14.
"It was a lot of pushing and shoving," said another source to Us Weekly. "People were picking up ice buckets in case they had to throw it. They tore the club apart. It was bad. People went to the hospital!"
