Rihanna and and now ex-boyfriend Chris Brown used to be close, until he assaulted her in February before the Grammy Awards. He was sentenced Tuesday to probation and community labor.
The 22-year-old pop songstress has directed her attorney to reduce the restraining order keeping him away from her, reports E! Online.
According to the new agreement, the order is being reduced to a level one, which means that the two can have contact as long as Brown does not "annoy, molest or harass" Rihanna.
Brown's attorney has been informed of the deal, but has yet to file the paperwork acknowledging the changes, reports US magazine.
Rihanna and Brown, 21, had one of the more infamous breakups in recent memory following his Grammy-night attack on her in 2009. Brown was eventually charged with felony assault and making criminal threats. He accepted a plea agreement that involved community labor, domestic violence counseling and five year's probation. He largely removed himself from the public eye in the wake of the scandal, only to resurface with an emotional performance at the 2010 BET Awards.
There was a possibility that the two singers could have faced each other at the upcoming Grammy Awards, but Brown - who is nominated for three awards - will not attend due to a prior commitment. Rihanna is set to perform at the ceremony and has been nominated for several awards, including record and song of the year for "Love the Way You Lie," her collaboration with Eminem.
