Because that will make everyone forget what he did a few years back.
The singer - who recently rekindled his on-again / off-again / on-again romance with the 24-year-old popstar despite still being on probation for beating her after a pre-Grammys bash in 2009 forcing them both to pull out of the main event - reportedly wants her to take to the stage with him at this year's prestigious music awards show in Los Angeles on February 10th to show everyone they are in love again. And, more importantly, that all is forgiven.
A source RadarOnline.com: "Chris wants to perform with Rihanna at the Grammys to show the whole world they are back together. Chris doesn't care what the haters say, and wants to give the viewers an over the top performance with Rihanna. He wants the fans to know this is the real deal, and he is a changed man. If Rihanna can forgive him, the rest of the world should move on from what happened four years ago."
True, Rihanna could be deemed the bigger person by forgiving him, but it's in her nature, on account of her upbringing 'n all.
A Grammys insider said that producers were hesitant to give the couple the green light to per-form at the ceremony together, saying: "It's an extremely delicate situation and there is con-cern about the backlash the performance could receive. But it could also be ratings gold."
Relations between the couple have reportedly been somewhat strained recently after Chris, 23, spent some time with his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran but sources close to Rihanna have insisted she "trusts him to stay faithful to her."
