The coast is clear.
Now that Chris Brown's court date has come and come, and his not guilty plea entered with a new hearing set for April 29, Rihanna saw that the time was right.
To return to the mainland, that is.
Rihanna was spotted at the airport on Tuesday in Barbados with her mother, Monica Fenty. She had been in her native country while Brown was being arraigned.
She's now back in the U.S., having boarded a flight to LAX. It's good to know if your boyfriend is arraigned on felony charges, you can always go home again.

RiRi felt staying far away from Monday's proceedings was the best move, but her lawyer has made it clear she will do whatever is required of her by the D.A.
He also made clear that she would love to have nothing to do with this, and for it to just go away. Will that translate to the D.A. giving Brown a plea deal?
Yesterday, Rihanna's dad was singing a different tune, making public his belief that Brown should plead guilty, own up to it and seek mercy from the judge.
