A seating plan for tonight's awards ceremony has apparently been leaked online.

Rihanna and Chris Brown will be separated by British stars One Direction and Pink at tonight's (6th September) MTV Video Music Awards 2012, it has been reported.

The 'We Found Love' singer has been linked all year with an apparent reconciliation with her former boyfriend – with some reports suggesting they could appear together at the industry event.

However, E! Online has revealed that they have witnessed a seating plan for the artists which sees the former couple in the same row, just seven seats apart.

The 'You Da One' singer will have close friend Katy Perry to her other side with the likes of Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Demi Lovato also on the same row.

Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus are expected to be sat just behind the Bajan star and Katy.

Other stars who will be at the event include The Wanted, Rita Ora and Harry Potter star Emma Watson.

Rihanna and One Direction are both among the star performers on the night with RiRi opening the musical extravaganza with a remix of her song 'Cockiness' alongside A$AP Rocky.

She is also the most nominated female artist at the event scooping a total of five nods at the ceremony.

The MTV VMAs 2012 take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles tonight (6th September).
