Adele has reportedly given Chris Brown a tongue-lashing for being a bad sport and not joining the standing ovation when his rival Frank Ocean was awarded a Grammy yesterday.
The controversial star - who was also nominated for the Best Urban Contemporary Album award - was captured on camera sitting down while every other guest was on their feet.
A picture of Brown and Adele has emerged in which the ballsy British songstress appears to be shouting at him. The stars - who are both standing up in the photo - were seated in close proximity at the star-studded ceremony.
The photo is believed to have been taken moments after Brown refused to stand for Ocean. In the shot, Brown is holding his arms out in protest as Adele addresses him in what appears to be a tense one-on-one.
Another photo taken later in the evening shows the pair in a happier interlude.
Brown was recently involved in a fight with Ocean outside a recording studio in Los Angeles, and although no arrests were made after the brawl, Brown was largely blamed for the scuffle.
But Brown might be in for even more trouble: Celebrity gossip site TMZ reports that he and Rhianna were seen sharing a suspicious rolled up cigarette at a Grammys afterparty.
They also managed to get a shot showing Brown driving away from the club with Rihanna in the passenger seat at around 3:20am, "which would be a big issue if he's driving under the influence of pot - a big issue because he's on probation for beating his passenger to a pulp," TMZ wrote.
