After telling the world in song how much they still want to — shall we say — eat cake together, Rihanna and Chris Brown are taking their rekindled “friendship” even more public than that very intimate hug and head rub at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month. The “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer is facing scrutiny from a judge concerning potential probation violations stemming from his violent beatdown of Rihanna, but the “S&M” singer let it be known that she has his back.
A judge has ordered a further review of Chris Brown’s community service and travel to determine whether the R&B singer has violated the terms of his probation for the 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown appeared in court Monday for the first time in more than a year, and Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg tried to sort through Brown’s probation record and the impact of a positive marijuana result during a random drug screening. Schnegg said community service logs from Brown’s home state of Virginia were “somewhat cryptic” and additional review was needed to determine whether he had complied with his probation.

Rihanna wanted him to know that she supports him in the tweets below:
Brown responded warmly:
As previously reported by NewsOne, Rihanna told Oprah that even right after Brown assaulted her, she was more worried about him than herself:
“I lost my best friend. Everything I knew switched … switched in a night and I couldn’t control that,” she says about that Grammy weekend. “So I had to deal with that, and that’s not easy for me to understand or interpret. It’s not easy to interpret on camera — not with the world watching. So it was hard for me to even pay attention to my mind and figuring things out because now it became a circus.
“I felt protective,” she admits. “I felt like, ‘The only person they hate right now is him.’ It was a weird, confusing space to be in. Because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help, and who’s going to help him? Nobody’s going to say he needs help. Everybody’s going to say he’s a monster without looking at the source, and I was more concerned about him.”
No one knows what the future holds for these two, but it is obvious they have moved passed the assault.
