A source told the Associated Press on Monday that Brown will take the stage at Sunday’s show just three years after his infamous incident with then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown assaulted Rihanna at a pre-GRAMMY party back in 2009 which resulted in five years probation, community service, domestic violence counseling, a restraining order (lifted last February) and, most importantly, the risk of his career.
Since the altercation, Brown has released two studio albums (Graffiti, F.A.M.E.) and is preparing for his fifth album, Fortune.
This year, Brown is up for three GRAMMY nominations including Best R&B Album (F.A.M.E.) and Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Look At Me Now.”
Rihanna is also scheduled to take the stage Sunday night with a performance beside Coldplay, singing “Princess of China.”
She is nominated for four Grammys including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album (Loud), as well as Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “What’s My Name?” and Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.”
While the pair have been spotted partying at the same locations recently, they have never attended an awards show together since 2009.
The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards will air live from Los Angeles Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, hosted by LL Cool J.
