Rihanna's turbulent two-year relationship with the recent Grammy winner ended after he assaulted her the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards; and Brown was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community labour.
Brown and his lawyer Mark Geragos are currently fighting a $16million lawsuit filed by Entertainment Enterprises this week alleging that the hip-hop star and Drake caused the W.i.P. bar brawl which left several injured in June. It is believed the violent row erupted over the artists' alleged relationships with Rihanna.

The Talk That Talk star is also said to have dated Shia LaBeouf, Josh Hartnett, and Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp, but she shared with Oprah the qualities she's yet to find in her ideal man.
'If I had it my way I want a man that loves me, cherishes me, values me, but they have to know my value in order to value me,' she said.
'They have to know my worth and they can only know my worth if I know my worth. I want them to respect me.'
Rihanna continued: 'But I want fun times! I want fun, fun times. I want laughs. I want laughs more than everything. I have everything else, all I want is a partner in crime to enjoy it with me.'
In the previously-released preview of the highly-anticipated interview, the chart-topper admitted that she had 'felt protective' of Brown following the 2009 beating.
'I lost my best friend. Like, everything I knew switched - switched overnight,' she tearfully said of the 'embarrassing' incident. 'Who’s gonna help him? Nobody’s gonna say he needs help. Everybody’s gonna say he’s a monster without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.' Speaking to camera in the preview, Oprah said: 'I went there with my own ideas about who she was from watching her videos and listening to her music.
'I thought she was gonna be kind of a bada**, a kind of hard edged, rocker, pop woman. Nothing could have been farther from the truth.'
