Rihanna and Chris Brown held hands and cuddled at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, four years after the pair missed the ceremony after he battered the Umbrella singer on the way to the show.

The singers sat side-by-side in the sat front row at the Los Angeles music awards ceremony.

It marks the most public outing for the couple since their reconciliation.

Rihanna and Chris missed the Grammys back in 2009 after he battered her on the way to the ceremony.

He was convicted for assault and sentenced to five years probation.

Rihanna and Chris arrived separately to this year's Grammys.

The 24-year-old Barbadian beauty dazzled on the red carpet in a floor-sweeping crimson gown with sheer paneling by Alia and wore long brunette hair extensions.

Chris, 23, wore a white suit and shoes for the occasion.

Despite keeping their distance on the press line, once inside the couple looked extremely close.

Rihanna was seen putting her head on Chris’ shoulder in one photo while the pair smiled through performances and awards speeches.

Chris was also seen with his arm around the Umbrella singer, and later holding her hand.

Rihanna was an early winner at Sunday night’s ceremony. She took the prize for best short form music video for her hit We Found Love.

Also nominated in the category were M.I.A. (Bad Girls), Jay-Z and Kanye West (No Church In the Wild), Foster the People (Houndini) and Woodkid (Run Boy Run).

Grammy night came just days after Rihanna was seen supporting Chris at a hearing for his probation case.

She was seen sitting near him in a Los Angeles court room on Wednesday as the singer and his lawyer answered to prosecutors’ latest allegations.

Chris is accused of submitting fraudulent documents logging court-ordered community service hours following his assault of Rihanna. His lawyer has refuted the claims.

The case is ongoing.
