The 'Turn Up The Music' singer notably stayed seated while the arena acknowledged the R&B star's win.

Chris Brown was spotted refusing to take part in a standing ovation for Frank Ocean at the Grammy Awards 2013 last night (10th February), following a reported altercation between the pair back in January.

The 'Pyramids' singer-songwriter won Best Urban Contemporary Album for his solo debut 'Channel Orange' at Sunday's ceremony, beating Chris Brown's 'Fortune', and received an ovation from the much of the Los Angeles Staples Center audience.

However, 'Turn Up The Music' singer Chris refused to join his peers by standing in honour of the R&B star's first Grammy win, although he did applaud while the singer made his way to the stage.

"I want to say thank you to my mother for being the best and to my managers Kelly and Chris for being the best," Frank said during his acceptance speech. "To everybody at Odd Future records and everybody at Island Def Jam and all of you guys, thank you."

The two R&B stars were reported to have engaged in a scuffle at a parking lot in West Hollywood last month, after Frank tweeted that he had been "jumped by chris and a couple guys", though the singer later tweeted to say he would not be pressing charges.
