It's been four years since Chris Brown and Rihanna failed to show up at the 2009 Grammys, following a domestic violence incident that Brown later pleaded guilty to. But the pair -- who have since reconciled and released a bluntly-titled duet together, "Nobodies Business" -- aren't letting that stop them from potentially alienating everyone and attending the 2013 Grammy Awards show together Sunday night.
A source told the website Hollywood Life that Rihanna was "looking forward to the Grammys and [she] will be with Chris the whole night, so you know that's going to be extra f*cking special. He already told her he would go with her, so it's a wrap."
And in a revealing interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Rihanna confirmed that she had taken her ex-boyfriend back into her life, saying that she was happier with him than without. "I decided it was more important for me to be happy," she said. "I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
While we'll have to wait and see if Rihanna, 24, and Brown, 23, do actually show up on the red carpet together for the first time since the 2009 assault, we do know that the "Diamonds" singer has already been standing by her man's side in court. Rihanna accompanied Brown to court Thursday, where he faced allegations that he failed to complete community service stemming from his plea bargain, and blew him a kiss from the front row.
