Rihanna and Chris Brown have bid adios to Miami Beach.

After spending the past few days holed up in the city, the controversially reunited duo was spotted together at Miami International Airport late Sunday night.

The couple, doing their best to cover up their faces, were joined by several friends at the airport, and Brown arrived in the L.A. area this morning. Rihanna is believed to have accompanied him, with sources telling E! News the twosome has checked in to a Beverly Hills hotel.

Brown is tentatively scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles on Thursday for their Grammys eve confrontation, but the district attorney says that date may be postponed if detectives don't turn over the case soon enough. As of this morning, prosecutors tell E! News they have yet to see the evidence.

Since that incident occurred on Feb. 8, Rihanna spent solo time in Los Angeles, Mexico and her native Barbados, while Brown traveled to Las Vegas and his Virginia hometown before jetting to Miami.

Word broke late Friday that the couple was spending one-on-one time at Sean "Diddy" Combs' Star Island mansion.

Over the weekend, the "Disturbia" singer remained out of sight, while Brown, for the first time since his Feb. 8 arrest, appeared to be less than camera shy, jet skiing in the waters around Diddy's compound. He had also been logging late-night sessions at Miami's Hit Factory studios, working on his new album, in the days leading up to their reunion.

E! News has also learned that Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins, was among those in Miami supporting her son. Brown has discussed in interviews childhood memories of domestic abuse his mother endured at the hands of a man she was involved with.

Reps for both Rihanna and Chris Brown have so far refused to comment on the seeming reconciliation, though Rihanna's father made clear over the weekend that he was behind his daughter, whatever direction her personal life may take.

"I love my daughter with whatever road she takes," Ronald Fenty told Us Weekly. "I'm behind her win or lose. I will be supportive. If that's the road she wants to choose, I'm behind her. I hope to see her soon. I talked to her after her birthday, and she told me she's OK."
