Earlier this week, a judge allowed Chris Brown to once again have contact with former girlfriend Rihanna, tossing the restraining order against him.

With the passage of time, and Brown doing an exemplary job with his probation, one practically forgets that he beat his one-time lady love senseless.

Until today, when MediaTakeOut posted uncensored photos of Rihanna's battered face after the attack - pictures even more graphic than you think.

Follow the jump to see one of the images. Warning: It's upsetting ...

Rihanna and Ryan Phillippe GOT IT ON and not for the first time, according to a totally reliable unnamed source quoted by Us Weekly this week.

While the singer appeared to blow off Phillippe at a Gucci/Roc Nation brunch in L.A. Feb. 12, an insider now says it was actually the opposite.

The couple had a sleepover that very night! "She thinks he's hot," says the source. "They totally had sex. And it wasn't even the first time!"

"They initially hooked up when things were strained with [her ex] Matt Kemp back in early December," says a Rihanna source, adding that they "played it cool."

"There was no PDA," says an attendee of the Los Angeles party. "They hung out a bit, but were discreet. It is still very casual." Sums up another source:

"Clearly they're keeping it on the downlow!"

Pretty typical for a non-relationship. With Chris Brown's restraining order lifted, she may want to keep her options open too. You really never know.

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.

Rihanna Wax Figure

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.

Rihanna celebrated her 23rd birthday yesterday.

For such a young age, the Barbados native has amassed a huge number of hit songs. She's also drastically altered her image in the last couple of years, shedding her innocent appeal in favor of a harder, edgier, hyper-sexual persona.

It's as if the message is to say, in short, you can't keep this girl down, Chris Brown, and you ain't gettin' any of this ever again. Punk. Whatever you think of the style chameleon personally, her musical success is undeniable.

Here's the birthday girl performing live at the NBA All-Star game last night. Check out her collaboration with Kanye and Drake above and wish her a happy b-day!

Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried, who have been a couple for a few months now, were spotted having an intense conversation the week before last.

This sparked rumors that the two are on the rocks, if not over for good, because days later, Phillippe was already on the prowl, trying to pick up Rihanna.

"He said something to the effect of, 'What are you doing tonight?' She said 'sleep,'" a source said. "She was polite, but she was genuinely not interested."

Red-Haired RiRi

Fear not, Phillippe fans, because Reese Witherspoon's ex had more luck later that night, when he was seen leaving a house party with a pretty brunette.

As for his relationship with Amanda Seyfried?

"It's casual. They'e friends who hang out romantically from time to time and that's it," says a pal. "At one point, there was a chance it would develop into something more serious, but it never did. There's no commitment."

Just the way he likes it, we're guessing.

Julianne Hough and Rihanna represented different styles - of music and fashion - at the Grammy Awards last night. But which beauty was the best dressed?

The country singer and ex-Dancing With the Stars cast member showed her true colors ... all of them! Not everyone could pull that dress off, but JH does.

Before performing with Eminem, Rihanna took to the red carpet in a nude gown wrapped in rings of flowers ... and somehow it works because it's Rihanna.

In perhaps the most anticipated event of the 2011 Grammy Awards, Eminem took the stage with Rihanna, Skylar Grey and Dr. Dre for a seven-minute performance.

Eminem and Rihanna opened with Part II of their collaborative hit, “Love The Way You Lie,” and as her vocals soared, Eminem appeared amid a fiery background.

Rihanna sounded so good, you'd never know she battled laryngitis and bronchitis leading up to the show, while Eminem's animated effort was brilliant as usual ...

After "Love the Way You Lie," he performed another slow-building track with female backing. Skylar Grey joined in on "I Need a Doctor," as did his one-time mentor.

Dr. Dre himself came on stage for the last verse, putting the finishing touch on this star-studded effort. Take a look above if you missed it and comment below.

Rihanna is cool with Chris Brown being in contact with her again.

Let's be clear in that it's unclear just how much contact they plan on having. But her lawyer says she would like the restraining order against Brown lifted, which would enable him to get close to her again without risking getting thrown in jail.

Whatever the motivation, she's come a long way since 2009.

Thugz Gotta Move On

Brown requested the court drop the restraining order recently.

Rihanna's attorney Donald Etra says she "does not object" to reducing it to a "do not annoy" order, allowing contact as long as Chris doesn't harass/molest her.

Chris initially asked for the reduction, but the court needed to know how Rihanna felt before ruling. The order has not been changed yet, but it could be soon.

Again, this could be as simple as her doing him a favor. The No Contact Order being in place puts him at risk of prosecution. But you have to wonder.

Might they rekindle the romance, or at least friendship, in the future?

I may be bad, but I'm very, very good at it.

The music video for Rihanna's new song, "S&M," certainly lives up to that boast. Guys are chained, whipped, gagged and by all accounts dominated by the singer in various stages of undress. Tune is pretty catchy, too!

Take a look at it below and tell us what you think:

What do you think of Rihanna's new video?
