Rihanna's Restraining Order Against Chris Brown Officially Lifted

February 23, 2011 (5:03 am) GMT
Rihanna's legal team agreed to reduce the restraining order against the singer who complained that it gets in the way of his career.

A restraining order forbidding R&B star to be in the same room as his ex-girlfriend has been lifted in Los Angeles. Rihanna's lawyers recently agreed to reduce the restraining order hanging over the "Kiss Kiss" singer after his lawyer complained it restricted his career - and the ruling was made official on Tuesday, February 22.

Brown was found guilty of assaulting the "Umbrella" singer after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009 and as part of his punishment he was ordered to stay away from her at all times, including music events. Now, two years later, the restraining order has been lifted, allowing Brown contact with his ex - as long as he doesn't annoy or harass her.

Brown was in court on Tuesday for the hearing. Rihanna skipped it, but her attorney Donald Etra made it clear his client had no objections.
