Though they didn’t get to present together at the MTV Video Music Awards, as was reported on celebrity gossip websites, the former couple still managed to have a moment together—and it was more than any of their fans could have ever hoped for.

Rihanna, who was dressed in a simple and demure Adam Selman gown, raised some eyebrows when she gave her abusive ex Chris Brown (yes, the same Chris Brown who assaulted her three years ago) a hug and quick kiss on the lips after accepting “Video of the Year” for her song “We Found Love”—which, coincidentally, was rumored to be about her relationship with Chris.

After descending the stage, Rihanna made a beeline for her ex, who immediately stood up to congratulate her… with a kiss.

Last month, the Barbadian beauty confessed to Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that she was still in love with Chris despite their volatile breakup.

Watch the shocking moment below:
