When it comes to Hollywood exes, few former flames are more tightly bonded than Chris Brown and Rihanna. And when Brown nearly violated his probation this week when he failed a drug test, it was Rihanna who stood by his side. And Rihanna is reportedly willing to go to court to help Brown if he needs her.

On Monday, Brown attended a probation progress report hearing in Virginia, during which it was revealed that he tested positive for marijuana. Though the failed test could’ve have been considered a parole violation, Judge Patricia Schnegg explained that she never ordered Brown to undergo mandatory drug testing for probation and decided to let him off the hook with a warning.

But before Brown entered the hearing, Rihanna sent out a supportive tweet for her ex-boyfriend, which she has since removed.

“Praying for you baby, my best wishes are with you today! Remember that whatever God does in our lives, it is WELL DONE!!! #1Love,” tweeted Rihanna.

She then sent a tweet directly to Brown, which he retweeted.

@rihanna@chrisbrown I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!” : thank u so much,” Brown retweeted.

Though Schnegg didn’t immediately find Brown in violation of parole, she has scheduled a Nov. 1 court date to decide if she should. And, according to RadarOnline, Rihanna is fully prepared to go to court to speak on behalf of Brown to keep him out of trouble.

“Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support. Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on November 1 for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn’t set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologized to RiRi on multiple occasions,” a source claimed.

“Rihanna would also tell the judge that Chris isn’t the same person now, as he was on that fateful night when he assaulted her. Rihanna doesn’t care if she is criticized for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him,” the insider added.

Now, that’s some kind of friendship. And they’re not alone. Check out some other friendly and supportive exes below. – nicholas robinson
