Chris Brown and Rihanna snuggle up
What a difference four years makes. Rihanna and Chris Brown both walked the red carpet separately at the 2013 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. But once inside the Staples Center, Rihanna (clad in a custom Azzedine Alaia gown, Neil Lane jewelry and Manalo Blahnik shoes) and Brown, 23, happily posed – and cuddled – in the audience.
The night before the 2009 Grammys was a much less peaceful scene for the couple, of course: Brown assaulted Rihanna, 24, in a high-profile case for which Brown is still serving probation. The couple reunited to much controversy last year. “He doesn’t have the luxury of ******* up again,” Rihanna told Rolling Stone of their much-scrutinized reconciliation. Later on in the evening, Rihanna wowed the crowd with an emotional performance of her ballad, “Stay.”(US Weekly)
