Two years after the domestic assault that tore them apart, Rihanna has asked the judge to rescind Chris’ restraining order to a level one and he agreed. Do you think it is for the best?

It’s only been two years since Chris Brown beat up Rihanna during a fight in their car, and despite the five year restraining order the judge placed on Chris, Rihanna had it rescinded to a level one Feb. 22.

As long as Chris, 21, doesn’t harass, bother or molest Rihanna, 23, they can interact with one another, which makes it possible for Chris to attend and perform at award shows and concerts where Ri Ri is also present.

Throughout the last two years as Chris has undergone community service and parole, Rihanna has never attacked his character and has only talked about how sad she was their relationship ended the way it did.

“He was my best friend,” she told Elle in July. “All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives — not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him — it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”

Even though it makes practical sense for both of their careers to rescind the restraining order (especially Chris’ because he has an upcoming album), maybe the two former lovers want to regain the friendship they lost that fateful night.
