LOS ANGELES (AP) — Don’t expect any congratulatory hugs between former lovers Chris Brown and Rihanna at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
Although both stars are nominated for awards, a court order remains in place for the singers to steer clear of each other.
The stay-away order is a remnant of Brown’s 2009 assault case, in which he admitted beating Rihanna.
Concerned about the former couple reconnecting, a judge ordered them to stay at least 50 yards apart for the next five years. The lone exception was if they both attended a music-industry event, where they would have to stay at least 10 yards apart — a lot more than an arms’ length distance.
Etra says the pop singer has put the incident behind her. “Rihanna’s doing great,” he said. “She certainly hopes Chris is doing well.”
