Do YOU think Chris should be allowed to attend the Grammys?

Two years after his vicious assault of Rihanna, Chris Brown has asked for his restraining order to be lifted.

Legally, Chris, 21, must stay 100 yards away from Rihanna, 22, at all times, which his lawyer says is preventing him from being able to attend events such as award ceremonies. The request comes just in time for the Feb. 13 Grammys.

Chris’ legal team is confident the request will be granted, given Chris has been diligent in meeting the terms of his probation, including completing a 52-week domestic violence course.

Both Chris and Rihanna are nominated for Grammys this year, with Rihanna receiving six nods and Chris up for three awards. If the order is not lifted, it would be very difficult for Chris to attend and not be in violation of the law.

Although it is commendable Chris has been keeping up with his responsibilities, we don’t think being nominated for an award is a valid reason to skip legal consequences. Just because Chris is famous doesn’t mean he should be able to get special treatment!
