It seems that a year is enough time for Rihanna to have a change of heart and go easy on her ex. Or, at least that's what we gather when we learned that she gave Superior Court Judge the heads up that it was OK to downgrade the restraining order looming over pop sensation Chris Brown's head.
Recently, Celeb Love called Rihanna's new beau, Matt Kemp, an "upgrade" from her abusive ex, Chris Brown. However, Star Magazine has dug up some details on Matt that might make us rethink that one. Less than two years ago, Matt's ex-girlfriend, actress Felisha Terrell, filed a restraining order against the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, in which she claimed that he was a "violent" stalker who had threatened her.
Chris who?...Rihanna understandably has been pretty casual about dating since her turbulent relationship with singer Chris Brown came to a violent end early last year. (She's been linked to Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Tristan Wilds.) But Ri seems like she's finally ready to get serious with her new man, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. The two are currently enjoying a romantic getaway in Cabo San Lucas, where they're putting on quite a lovey-dovey show for beachgoers.

Well, of course he does. D'uh. Even though he had told MTV that "there is nothing that could come out that's like, 'OK, this is something totally different than what we know," in regards to Rihanna's interview, now, after the fact, he has issued a statement asking for privacy:
Sunday night marked the second-season premiere of VH1's Tool Academy, where the world's most patient girlfriends send their lousy lovers to straighten out their acts. Since the trend these days is to make a "celebrity" version of nearly every reality show, we'd like to suggest some famous fellas who should be admitted to the inevitable Celebrity Tool Academy. Chris Brown, Jude Law, Balthazar Getty, Eddie Cibrian, Jon Gosselin, Spencer Pratt...
"It can happen to anyone..." said the 21-year-old singer on Good Morning America in her first TV interview addressing last February's beating at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Skeptics who suggested that her speaking out was but for mere publicity and promotion of her new album should be silenced after watching. Heartbreakingly vulnerable, the pop star said that she waited until now to speak because she was ashamed:
As one of Glamour's Women of the Year, Rihanna is finally breaking her ten-month silence to discuss the abuse she suffered at the hands of former boyfriend Chris Brown.
