Rihanna Supports Chris Brown In Court
RiRi & Breezy are said to have left his probation hearing arm-in-arm...
The Don't Judge Me singer turned up at the LA Courthouse with RiRi by his side, as he faced claims that he lied about completing community service as punishment for assaulting Rihanna back in 2009.
As we previously reported, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office believes Brown violated terms of his probation by saying he was carrying out labour in his native Virginia, when he was actually travelling around the world.
According to TMZ, the Diamonds hitmaker blew Chris a kiss and gave him some words of support before they entered the courtroom.
She is then said to have taken her seat in the gallery with Breezy's mum, and sat 'quietly' through the hearing as Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, insisted the R&B star had done nothing wrong regarding his probation.
Geragos told the court he was "a little disturbed" with the decision was taken by the DA's office, arguing that it "could have been handled much differently".
The judge then ordered that the 23-year old meet with his probation officer in LA within the next 48 hours to speak about the allegations. The next hearing has been scheduled for April 5 to allow the judge to review all the evidence.
Geragos later addressed reporters after Breezy's court appearance, stating: "The DA is paralyzed with the thought that his probation will be terminated as soon as the community service hours are completed, because if that happens they not gonna be able to jock him around like they've been jocking him around.
"In 30 years of practice, I've never a client - and I've represented a wide breadth - thousands of clients - I have never, ever had a client who has been tortured by the DA's office on probation like Chris Brown has."
He went on to add that Rihanna was also standing by her man, adding: "[She's] completely supportive. She thinks it's utterly ridiculous what they're doing to him."
Witnesses went on to add that RiRi and Chris left the courtroom arm-in-arm, adding that she tried to cheer up a "dejected" looking Brown.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Rihanna confirmed her reunion with Brown, telling the mag: "He doesn't have the luxury of f**king up again. That's just not an option.
"I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.
"I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that."
She added: "Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
