According to reports, all of the hoopla started sometime over the weekend when it was revealed that Chris Brown began following the starlet on Twitter. Upon notice, Rihanna followed Breezy back. The possible union didn't sit too well with the former couple's fans. A tweet from Rihanna's account saw the Barbados beauty lashing out at one of her loyal followers who criticized her for following Brown.
"@iStan4Rihanna_ its f*--in twitter, not the alter! calm down," Rihanna tweeted. Shortly after the singer backtracked on her aggresive comments.
"@iStan4Rihanna_ babygirl I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt or offend u! Just needed to make it clear to the Navy! I still Stan for u xoxo.
Back in February a restraining order was lifted against Brown allowing him to come within close contact with Rihanna. The court order is a result of Brown's felony assault case against Rihanna dating back to 2009.
The restraining order has been replaced by a "level one order." Brown, who was in court with his attorney Mark Geragos, is now allowed to be around Rihanna, provided he abides by certain conditions.
"I'm approving the order," Judge Patricia Schnegg told Brown, according to Radar Online. "You can't annoy, molest, or conduct surveillance of the person on the order."
Rihanna was not present in the courtroom, but her lawyer, Donald Etra, was. "I have spoken with my client, and she does not object to it being modified to a level one order," he said.
It's been just over two years since the assault, which resulted in Brown being ordered to stay at least 50 feet away from Rihanna. Brown pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to five years probation and more than 1400 hours of "labor-oriented service."
In November, Schnegg praised Brown for his progress since his initial sentencing. "Of all probationers I've ever had, and I've had thousands of probationers, no one has ever done a better or more consistent job than you have," the judge said at a progress hearing, and on Tuesday, she spoke positively of Brown's participation in domestic violence counseling.
