Rihanna Agrees to Have Restraining Order Against Convicted Felon Chris Brown Lifted

After successfully completing his court-ordered 52-week domestic violence counseling program, convicted felon Chris Brown appeared before a Los Angeles judge last month for a progress hearing (like he has every three months) where he made a formal request to have the protective order, which requires him to stay stay 50 yards away from Miss Fenty (or 10 yards if they were both at the same industry event) lifted. To no one's surprise, Miss Fenty has agreed.
Rihanna apparently has a lot of forgiveness in her heart. Almost exactly two years after the horrific Grammy night assault on her by Chris Brown, the singer has agreed to allow the restraining order keeping him away from her to be softened, her lawyer, Donald Etra, tells E! News. So does this mean the two will have contact soon? Quite likely, but it probably won't be a Grammy night reunion. While Rihanna has requested that the order be dropped to a level one—meaning that they can have contact as long as Brown doesn't annoy, molest or harass her—and Brown attorney Mark Geragos has been informed of her approval, Geragos still needs to go to court to have the order officially modified by a judge. But Team Brown doesn't appear to be in a rush. Even though he is nominated for three Grammys this Sunday, he won't be attending the festivities due to a previous commitment. Rihanna, however, is among the confirmed perfomers at the awards show.
Two years ago last week, CFCB brutally assaulted Miss Fenty and was subsequently sentenced to five years' probation and 180 days of community service -- in addition to the counseling.

In Other News: Miss Fenty is scheduled to perform at the Brit Awards next Tuesday and reports from "sources" claim her performance will be fodder for the blogs because the "performance is going to be her raunchiest show yet and will be filled with lots of nudity." This is supposedly is an act of defiance after her the video for S&M, the new single, was banned in dozens of countries and the words -- like "sex", "chains" and "whips" -- changed to make it more radio-friendly. We shall see.
