On Feb. 6, only four days before this year’s Grammy Awards Show, Rihanna accompanied on-and-off again boyfriend Chris to his “probation state update hearing” in an L.A. courthouse, where she sat front row…right behind Chris.
The 23-year-old “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer is on probation as a result of his 2009 assault case for violently attacking Rihanna on the night of the Grammys.
Considering how badly bruised he left the songstress during the infamous incident, is Rihanna’s public support preparing fans for the pair to come full circle and walk side-by-side down the red carpet again on Sunday?
While they’ve recorded duets, talked about each other in interviews and shared very intimate photos since the assault, the Barbadian beauty’s presence in court may be her way of warming fans up to the fact that they’re back on again, whether they like it or not.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” Rihanna recently explained of their relationship. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
If something is to happen again, RiRi says she’ll walk, “he doesn’t have the luxury of [messing] up again.”
Do you think the couple will shock America by heading back to the scene of the crime together this weekend?
