Chris Brown & Nicole Scherzinger: Pair Make Out At Los Angeles Night Club (PHOTOS)

You might want to close your eyes for this one ...

Just when we thought Chris Brown was going to reunite with former flame Rihanna, the singer shocks onlookers and hooks up with "The X Factor" U.K. judge Nicole Scherzinger -- and X17 Online has the photos to prove it!

The pair was photographed making out on the dance floor and it doesn't look like they were trying to hide their affection for each other.

"They were dancing close for a while and being all touchy-feely and finally Chris leaned into her. She put her head on his shoulder and they started kissing!" a source inside the club tells X17. "I couldn't believe Chris was being so obvious about it!"

Brown was dating model Karreuche Tran since late 2011, but reportedly the couple split in July, with Tran tweeting last week, "the end."

Scherzinger, on the other hand, is allegedly still dating her longtime beau, Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton. The Pussycat Doll and her man called it quits late last year, but have been spotted together multiple times since. She even opened up to Cosmopolitan about him last month, saying they are both "kindred spirits."

But Scherzinger is known to mingle when she's single. The singer was linked to her "Dancing With The Stars" partner Derek Hough, as well as former "X Factor" host Steve Jones. Not to mention she's reportedly hooked up with Brown's arch enemy, Drake.

So, is Brown over Rihanna and moving on with Scherzinger? Only time will tell ...

UPDATE: Nicole Scherzinger's rep tells TMZ, "There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story ... The photos that have surfaced are old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club," adding, "I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing."
