Rihanna and Brown were involved in the infamous altercation, which left Rihanna bruised and battered slightly more than 2 years ago.

The highly publicized Brown-Rihanna saga began on the eve of their scheduled appearance at the Grammy Awards in 2009. The duo allegedly fought on the way home from the Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party on Feb. 8.

Brown pled guilty to felony assault in 2009 and was sentenced to 5 years probation. He was also ordered to complete more than 1,400 hours of community service and slapped with a restraining order that barred him from contacting or being near Rihanna.

Brown gets a second chance The 21-year-old ‘Yeah 3X’ singer is allowed to contact Rihanna again after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge lifted the restraining order prohibiting him from contacting the 23-year-old Barbados-born beauty, according to a TMZ report.

During a court hearing in L.A. Tuesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg replaced Rihanna’s previous restraining order with a level one order, meaning Brown no longer have to stay 10 yards away from Rihanna if they attend the same awards ceremonies.

Brown was present in the Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday alongside his attorney, Mark Geragos. While Rihanna did not attend the hearing, her lawyer, Donald Etra, told the court she had no objection to the downgrade of the restraining order.

Brown still prohibited from harassing Rihanna Under the modified order, Brown is permitted to speak with Rihanna, but is still prohibited from harassing or annoying the ‘S&M’ singer.

“I’m approving the order,” Judge Schnegg told Brown, according to Radar Online. “You can’t annoy, molest, or conduct surveillance of the person on the order.”

RiRi has not objected Brown was present in the Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday alongside his attorney, Mark Geragos.

While Rihanna did not attend the hearing, her lawyer, Donald Etra, told the court she had no objection to the downgrade of the restraining order.

“I have spoken with my client and she does not object to it being modified to a level one order,” Etra said.

Brown, meanwhile, has seemingly significantly progressed since the incident. At a progress hearing last August, Judge Schnegg told Brown, “You are doing very well. You are doing everything you are supposed to … you are working consistently on your community labor.”
