Chris Brown’s assault trial is apparently full steam ahead because Rihanna has been ordered to testify against her abusive ex. E! News reports:
The singer’s attorney, Donald Etra, told E! News that Rihanna will be called to testify at the June 22 preliminary hearing in Brown’s felony assault case.
“The judge advised me that there will be a subpoena for Rihanna as a witness at the preliminary hearing,” Etra said following a morning hearing. “She will definitely comply.”
And she will be doing so while facing her alleged attacker.
“He has to be here anytime a witness is called,” Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos said, confirming that the “monster”-denying R&B star will indeed be present to hear the testimony.
Things Chris Brown Should Probably Not Do During Rihanna’s Testimony:
1. Scream “I’ll kill you!”
2. Wave his fist at her. Then the jurors.
3. Dance for the judge. (That’ll be a tough one.)
4. Hug O.J.
