She recently revealed they still have a ‘very close friendship’ even after his infamous assault on her following a pre-Grammy party back in 2009.
The 24-year-old star wrote to Brown in a direct tweet: ‘I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!’ while he then responded: ‘Thank u so much.’
And in another more cryptic general tweet, Rihanna wrote: ‘Praying for you baby, my best wishes are with you today! Remember that whatever God does in our lives, it is WELL DONE!!! #1 Love.’
However, it is not clear whether she was referring to Brown in the tweet.
But the star’s prayers for her former beau were to no avail, with a Los Angeles judge revealing in court that Brown has tested positive for marijuana.
At today’s hearing, Judge Patricia Schnegg revealed Brown, who wore a waistcoat and tie and looked sombre, failed a drug test on June 18 in Virginia, where he was fulfilling his court ordered community service, according to TMZ.
Brown then informed his probation officer that he has a medical marijuana prescription in California, the probation report said.
Brown stood silently as Schnegg spoke, and at times seemed to nod in agreement.
Meanwhile, the judge told the court that community service logs from Brown’s state of Virginia were ‘somewhat cryptic’ and additional review was needed to determine whether he had complied with his probation.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, welcomed the inquiry and said he expected to show that Brown had complied with all his probation terms.
A spreadsheet sent by the Richmond, Virginia police chief indicated Brown had completed 1,402 hours of community service, ranging from trash pickup, to washing cars, painting and tending to stables
This year Brown has been involved in several high-profile incidents that have drawn negative headlines including a bottle-throwing New York City nightclub brawl involving his entourage and a group accompanying Drake.
Brown received a cut on his chin, but neither entertainer was charged.
A woman in Miami also accused Brown of taking her cellphone away after she tried to take pictures of him outside a South Beach nightclub, but the singer has not been charged in that incident either.
The judge ordered Brown to return to court on November 1 for another update and asked officials to prepare a supplemental probation report on Brown.
Virginia officials also reported that Brown may have travelled to Paris without permission, but Schnegg said she has approved most of the singer’s travel and would have to review that claim further.
