The MTV Video Music Awards brought together all of Hollywood's most popular rappers, singers and... famous exes.

Former couples like Amber Rose and 21 Savage risked an awkward encounter while walking the red carpet outside the Radio City Music Hall. Not to mention Blac Chyna and Tyga, who were spotted dining together for a friends birthday party on Sunday.

While Tyga and Blac Chyna are mostly friendly—they share a child together after all—other exes are on less-than-friendly terms. For example, Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels are in the midst of a heated he-said-she-said battle over Safaree's claim that Nicki once "cut me and i almost died the police," which he alleged in a tweet.

On the other end of the spectrum rests The Hills' alumni Audrina Patridge and Justin Bobby. The two had the chance to reunite in front of the cameras for The Hills reunion on the VMAs red carpet. However, this is not the first time the pair has spoken since their breakup on the reality show.

Last September, Bobby revealed that Patridge had reached out to him following her split from husband Corey Bohan. "We're talking because I made a comment about her, you know, what was happening with her divorce. She had reached out to me and kind of thanked me for just being nice and a friend about the whole thing," the former reality star said at the time. 

In addition to the aforementioned former couples, are rumored exes Karrueche Tran and Migos member Quavo. Last April, TMZ reported the artists were dating, but it appears the romance fizzled out before the two could make it official. Official or not, Karrueche turning up with date Victor Cruz might have made for a sticky situation on the red carpet. 

Ahh, to be a fly on the wall in that music hall.
