Rihanna is glad the restraining order handed to her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown has expired - because she never wanted their fight to impede his music career.

The restriction meant he could not attend parties or award shows while Rihanna was present. The court instruction was lifted earlier this year and now Brown must only make sure he doesn't harass his ex.

And Rihanna admits she's glad the order has expired, telling the new issue of Roll...
