Grammy-winning singer Rihanna has approved Chris Brown‘s request to have a restraining order lowered allowing her ex-boyfriend to lessen his distance.
Details of the restraining order approval hit the Internet Thursday (February 10) evening.
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. 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.

RiRi also confirmed the reports on her Twitter page.
“@SandraRose I would’ve sworn he beat YOUR a**, just by how upset u are! My fans don’t care abt a restraining order and neither do I! My bad!,” Rihanna tweeted Thursday (February 10). (Rihanna’s Twitter)
In late January, Brown appeared in a Los Angeles court to make the restraining order request.
The singer, along with his legal ace attorney Mark Geragos arrived to the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles and appeared calm and collected before the judge. Geragos told Judge Patricia Schnegg that his client has completed his 52 week domestic violence counseling and requested she remove the existing restraining order against Brown. “It makes it difficult at award shows and such,” Geragos said. Judge Schnegg did not immediately grant his request but did suggest a modification with the approval of Rihanna’s attorney, David Etra. (Radar Online)
Brown’s camp later came forward and said the request had nothing to do with wanting to avoid RiRi at this weekend’s Grammy Awards.
The singer’s representative has dismissed reports that his lawyer asked a judge to relax a restraining order against him so he can attend the upcoming Grammy Awards at the same time as his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown’s publicist has moved swiftly to deny claims the singer wanted the ban relaxed so he can go to the Grammys in February without running the risk of breaking the restraining order. The spokesperson tells TMZ.com, “This court date and the lifting of the restraining order is part of the planned ongoing legal proceedings. The date was scheduled months ago. Chris Brown is very thankful for his Grammy nominations, but due to scheduling conflicts, he will not be attending the Grammys.” Brown is up for three awards at the annual prize giving. (Love Style)
