But the second most important man in Rihanna's life - her father - has told the media that he forgives Brown for attacking his daughter in the past.
"Chris made a mistake… a terrible one. But I'm a great believer that everybody deserves a second chance and Chris is no different. Everybody goes wrong at some point. I certainly have. But it is how you come back and live your life which is important. And as long as she is happy then so am I. Everybody has had their say about her and Chris but it is up to her to find her own way. Chris has always been polite and kind to me and treated me with respect. That's all you can ask from your daughter's boyfriend."
We're pretty certain there's more you can ask from a daughter's boyfriend, but it is true that Rihanna made this decision all on her own.
The father can't fight the inevitable, and it's better to forgive, we guess, than to lose contact with your daughter forever!
