Next month, pop star Rihanna is scheduled to appear in court to take the stand against her former boyfriend Chris Brown in his felony assault case. Her lawyer, Donald Etra, told E! that his client would be receiving a witness subpoena and, “She will definitely comply.”
Rihanna will be testifying during a preliminary hearing and by doing so, will find herself face-to-face with Brown, who recently told his fans in a video blog that he is not “a monster.”
As for Chris, his defense has argued that the leaking of a photo of a bruised and battered Rihanna will spoil any efforts to find an untainted jury pool. However, a judge shot down the argument, telling Brown’s team, “The allegation is that some civilian or officer got the photo to TMZ. Did it impact the arrest of your client on that date? I think not.”
