Chris Brown was ordered to appear in court yesterday, as Los Angeles prosecutors argued that Brown’s 1400 hours of community service needed to be restarted. His on-again girlfriend, Rihanna, appeared in court with her boyfriend as support. I think it’s odd she was there, considering his community service was for beating her to a pulp back in 2009.
Rihanna was photographed leaving the courthouse with Brown and his legal team. Why did she go with him to court? “She thinks it’s utterly ridiculous what they’re doing to him,” Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos told reporters. According to CNN, Geragos argues that the LA County district attorney’s office has “tortured” Chris enough.
By contrast, the L.A. County D.A. filed papers this week complaining that Brown has failed to complete his 180 days of community labor, which he agreed to after pleading guilty on a felony assault charge. Prosecutors said Brown’s paperwork claiming completion of the labor is “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting,” CNN reports.
“Absolutely false,” Gregaros retorted. The next court date is set for April 5. The motion also alleges that Brown may have violated his probation following a recent incident with singer Frank Ocean. (Ocean is not pressing charges.)
This Friday (Feb. 8) marks the four-year anniversary of Brown’s assault of Rihanna.
Rihanna recently defended her on-again status with Brown in an interview with Rolling Stone. “He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again,” she insisted. “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 hope they throw the book at him.
