Chris & Rihanna to keep their distance at Grammys
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 in a rented sports car after a pre-Grammy party.
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.
Rihanna's attorney, Donald Etra, says his client would like the order downgraded so the pair could be in closer proximity without risking Brown's probation. But he says no discussions about requesting a new order from the judge have taken place.
Etra says the pop singer has put the incident behind her.
"Rihanna's doing great," he said. "She certainly hopes Chris is doing well."
