Last month Chris Brown requested that Rihanna's restraining order against him be lifted, claiming it made things "difficult at award shows and such." While the judge didn't immediately grant the request, she did suggest a modification to the current restraining order that would go into effect with the approval of Rihanna's attorney.

Now, RadarOnline.com reports that in a surprising move, the 'S&M' singer is allowing her restraining order against Chris to be softened. The restraining order was a result of the 2009 case against her former boyfriend for assaulting her.

The 22-year-old is reportedly requesting that the order be dropped to a level one. This would mean she and Chris could have contact as long as he doesn't "harass or molest her," according to Radar.
