Rihanna’s restraining order against ex-boyfriend Chris Brown was lifted by a U.S. judge yesterday.
A court order was lifted on Tuesday that had prevented R&B singer Chris Brown from coming into close contact with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna since a violent altercation two years ago.
Los Angeles Superior Court judge Patricia Schnegg downgraded the stay-away order that said Brown, 21, must stay 50 yards away from Rihanna, or 10 yards at entertainment industry events.
Schnegg replaced it with a less stringent order that bars Brown from harassing or annoying Rihanna, but allows him to speak to her.
Rihanna was not in court but her lawyer said that the “Rude Boy” and “Umbrella” singer had no objection to the change.
