Rihanna To Testify Against Chris Brown
The on-going saga between Rihanna and Chris Brown steam-rolls on, with the ‘Umbrella’ singer now confirmed to testify against Brown in court next month:
Prosecutors plan to call Rihanna as a witnesses during a hearing in Chris Brown’s assault case, her attorney said Thursday. Donald Etra told reporters that prosecutors have told him the Barbados-born singer will receive a subpoena to testify at a preliminary hearing June 22. The hearing will focus on whether there is enough evidence to continue the case against Brown.
Brown was arrested in February on suspicion of hitting and choking Rihanna, then his girlfriend, in a rented car hours before the couple were scheduled to appear at the Grammys. Rihanna has not been formally been named as the victimn in police or prosecutors’ reports.
Etra said Thursday Rihanna will comply with the order. If she is called to testify, the 21-year-old singer would be subject to cross-examination by Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos.
A judge on Thursday rejected as premature a motion by Geragos to receive police and investigative records related to the case and the apparent leak of a photo of a beaten and bruised Rihanna.

It’s safe to say that with Rihanna testifying, what’s more on a date that Chris Brown compulsorily has to attend, the media will be all over this one. As much as this situation has been drawn out and over-reported since February, this upcoming court date sure will be one to watch.
