Rihanna may testify in Chris Brown hearing June 22

Will the world finally hear Rihanna’s first-person account of her alleged assault by ex Chris Brown, nearly  five months after the February 8 incident?

According to People.com, her lawyer, Donald Etra, said after a hearing today in L.A. that prosecutors intend to subpoena the 21-year-old pop star to appear at a June 22 hearing so the the court can determine whether there is enough evidence to proceed with a trial.

"The DA has advised me that she will be subpoenaed [to testify]," Etra said. "She absolutely will comply." The DA confirmed to EW that a motion by Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, to gain access to police records in order to discover who leaked a photo of Rihanna’s injuries was denied, though Geragos will have the right to cross-examine Rihanna when she takes the stand.

Brown, 20, has pleaded not guilty to the charges, for which he could face up to four years and eight months in prison; experts say the case is likely to end in a plea deal.

    IF she testifies Brown might as well start house hunting in other countries like Michael Jackson immediately. His video post/rant yesterday was so sad. Shows how much he has to learn about life: “I ain’t no monster…” EBONICS QUOTE OF THE YEAR. Do they give an award out for that at the BET Awards at the end of the June!?

    This is something that needs to get resolved by THEM and not the government, clearly there are instances when the court needs to get involved, but is this really such a case? She’s a wealthy powerfull woman who can stick up for herself and make her own decisions. This is not a situation where a woman is getting beat on by her husband and is scared to tell anyone, or leave him.

    Once again another date or because of that stupid whore, yeah I am a fan of Chris’s but I believe he has suffered enough and this whole case needs to go, if Rihanna didn’t get mad at him, then this would of never happened, I blame her for making him hit her, she should of kept her hands to herself just like he shouldn’t of hit her back, but who is suffering more him not her.
    My prayers are with Chris, he is not a monster!!!
    Haters leave him alone, he is not a devil, his a human being who did something wrong but has been punished by the world’s media and by judgemental people, who don’t know him, they hate on him with a passion and plan to take his career and everything he has achieved away from him, If there is a god, this won’t happen

    I Hate Rihanna: You make some good points, but sadly, as a fan you’re ignoring the fact that Chris WAS successful up to this incident. Why has he NOT only educated himself further with the money he’s made?! Yes, promoting his albums & touring are important, but clearly he is still a child and has no real idea what it means to be an adult. IF he did, he would know that making a youTube video clip using improper English makes him look even MORE foolish, if such a feat was even possible. He is more worried about maintaining some IMAGE & releasing a new album than growing up & doing the right things, which in this case means stepping up and acting like a MAN and not a stupid teen. If he doesn’t learn the proper way to fix situations like this now, then not only will he NEVER learn but will also repeat these mistakes. Who know what hand Rihanna played in the incident? All I know is she is following the proper channels & abiding by the law instead of promoting her image & music.

    Chris Brown in definitely a punk. Any man who hits a woman is a punk! If he is so tough like he claims, lets see him fight a man instead of having his entourage and bodyguards step up to everyone. Chris Brown is a sucker and obviously anyone who is a fan of his is a sucker too.
    The only thing I blame Rihanna for is a bad choice in lovers…You can’t play with dirt and not get dirty!

    The Taliban is looking for a lot of great guys like you. I am not being sarcastic, except for the “great guys” part.

  • lolatyou

    hey “I hate Rihanna” and everyone else who thinks its “her fault for making him” i hope you never suffer the same fate she did because no one deserves to be beaten.

  • Steve

    This is the bottom line here… IF Chris is such a man, why doesn’t he step up and fight a real man? Instead of beating up girls????
    Isn’t that common sense? Funny how all these little girls support Chris Brown and hate Rihanna because Chris beat her up. Good luck to all you little girls who want a wife beater for a man… for real, try to get some self-esteem and self-worth in your lives!

  • Sarah Jones

    Sorry–I was referring to those who are supporting Chris Brown’s actions, not the recent poster.

  • Cloud

    What makes me laugh and also cringe because of the ignorance are these little girls on here saying “Chris is my man!” haha! You all know Chris Brown could care less about you and wants nothing to do with you, other than have you support his popularity, which is pretty ugly right now.
    How can anyone who is even partially educated support Chris Brown in this? When does any woman “deserve” to get hit? The answer is NEVER!!! Real men should not be hitting a woman, EVER!!!
    Please someone get Chris Brown to sign up and fight a man, instead of being a punk and hitting women!!!

  • CommonSense

    No matter what a woman does, she never deserves to be hit. If she hits you then leave. Call it disrespect or what ever you want but be the bigger person. There is never a reason to hit a girl. Chris Brown needs to go to prison and be bent over and shown whats up.

  • Butch

    The fact is he beat a woman. He’s not man enough to control his temper. If Rhianna testifies, he’ll go to jail – where the animals are kept in cages…

  • LOL

    HIP HOP CULTURE MUST GO…STDS, TEEN PREGNANCY,VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN and CRIME ALL UP SINCE THE MUSIC WAS PUSHED ON SOCIETY. HIP HOP WS FUN 20 years ago and soicety was better.

  • LOL @ LOL

    LOL is an idiot. Neither Chris Brown or Rihanna are hip hop artists. They’re R&B/Pop. Get your facts straight LOL. Stop being a clown.
