Two years after making contact with her so severely that she lost consciousness and he nearly landed in jail, Chris Brown is free to contact Rihanna again.
A judge just lifted the restraining order prohibiting Brown from going near Rihanna, so long as he does not harass, annoy, or molest his former girlfriend.
Brown appeared in court in L.A., where a judge replaced Rihanna's restraining order with a less-severe Level One order, stipulating the terms above.
THE OLD DAYS: This VMA hotness seems like years ago.
Rihanna was not in court, but her attorney Donald Etra was, telling the judge that his client has no objection to the new order and new arrangement.
It's unclear if the two actually plan on having contact, or if this was just a formality - Brown's complied with probation, so the order should be lifted.
If nothing else, award shows could be a little less awkward now.
