Stop the presses! Chris Brown and Rihanna are sitting together at the 2013 Grammys.

The on again off again couple is known to be back together since Rihanna, herself a five-time Grammy winner, announced the reconciliation with Brown back in January.

However, the relationship seems to have made someone at CBS uncomfortable, as Brown was partially obscured in most shots of Rihanna. The odd camerawork had Twitter user Dr. Rachael Ross bewildered.

"So Rihanna is sitting next2 Chris Brown & the camera refuses 2capture a shot of them together??<-hmmm" she tweeted.

Twitter user @TeamBreezyRO was surprised to see the couple in such a public outing.

"Chris Brown and Rihanna sitting together at the Grammy's !!!!!!" he tweeted.

Brown is currently on probation for assaulting Rihanna back in 2009.

Oliver Williams, director of the Institute on Domestic Violence in the African-American Community at the University of Minnesota, told NPR that Rihanna and Brown's reconciliation shows common signs of domestic abuse.

"We act surprised at what's going on with Chris Brown and Rihanna," Williams said. "[But] the reality is ... it happens regularly," he said. According to much of the literature on domestic violence, he said, women will leave and go back to their abuser up to six times before it's all over. "They think that they may be able to change him and that they've done something wrong, when in fact he's got to take responsibility for what he has done," Williams said. "And he will be a carrier of violence until he accepts responsibility for it."

Twitter user Rob Fee can't believe it.

"Chris Brown and Rihanna are sitting together at the Grammys because everyone deserves a 673rd chance," he wrote.
