Los Angeles - Chris Brown is set to perform at the Grammy Awards.The Forever singer is believed to be making a return to the show, three years after he was arrested for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna at a pre-Grammy party in February 2009. He has not been officially announced as a performer at the ceremony, which takes place on Sunday, but if he does, he will be taking to the same stage as his ex. Chris' name was brought into disrepute after the attack - for which he is still serving five years probation - but he has since done much to turn his career around. He is nominated for three awards at the Grammys 2012, including Best R&B Album for F.A.M.E.
Chris' careerChris has admitted the LP marked a change in people's attitudes toward him, saying: "They wanna let me back in the door. The last two years, everybody dissed me. But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can't walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you're an angry person."In February 2011, a judge eased a restraining order Rihanna had against Chris, which meant they could be at the same award shows as each other. Last year, Rihanna also said she is still supportive of Chris' career. She said: "I would never wish anything horrible for him. It was too much anger."It's incredible to see how he pulled out the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he's putting out. I'm a fan of his stuff. I've always been a fan."The Grammy Awards 2012 is being held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
