Exactly three years ago this week Chris Brown made global headlines after brutally beating popstar girlfriend Rihanna over Grammy weekend. The R&B singer will return to this year's Grammy Awards and perform, reports Reuters.
Brown, 22, saw his career and reputation nosedive in 2009, after he viciously beat then-girlfriend Rihanna following record executive Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party. Both Brown and Rihanna subsequently canceled their appearances at that year's awards ceremony.
Brown has been fairly quiet for the last year or so. Two notable exceptions: That violent outburst behind-the-scenes at Good Morning America. And the gay internet rumors that went viral last fall. Brown tweeted an angry denial and threatened legal action over claims that he was involved in an "down low" relationship with an up-and-coming male singer.
The 54th Grammy Award ceremony is February 12.
