Chris Brown's New Mystery Court Hearing

3/12/2009 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown, RihannaChris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has requested an unscheduled hearing even before Brown's arraignment in the alleged beating of Rihanna -- and it has to do with Rihanna testifying in the case -- or not testifying!

We've learned the case has been officially moved to L.A. County Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg. She's the judge who signed the search warrant in the case.

The hearing is set for March 23. It will take place in Judge Schnegg's chambers. Prosecutors will join Geragos but Chris Brown will not be present.

Geragos is the one who requested the meeting. We know it involves Rihanna's possible testimony in the case. Will Geragos ask the judge to block prosecutors from calling Rihanna or limiting her testimony? We don't know for sure.

We do know the meeting has nothing to do with a plea bargain.

The arraignment is still set for April 6.

THEY BOTH DESERVE EACH OTHER. AT LEAST THEY CAN SMACK EACH OTHER AROUND AND ENJOY IT. AS LONG AS THEY STAY TOGETHER, NO ONE ELSE WILL GET SMACKED. THESE TWO NEED TO JUST FADE INTO THE WOODWORK. THEY ARE BOTH A DISGRACE TO THE YOUNG FANS WHO LOOKED UP TO THEM. NOW THAT THE TRUTH IS OUT OF HOW ABUSIVE BOTH OF THEM ARE, THEIR FAN BASE IS DEFINETELY GOING DOWN THE TOILET.

Peanut Gallery-Thank you so much for seeing the truth. I know that Rihanna is lying and hopefully, together we can expose the truth and make all of these media giants look stupid. By the way, did you sign the petition. Look at comment 136 and clink on the link to sign your name and tell everyone that you know to do so as well. Look forward to working with you.

I said it once, and I'll say it again --- Stop her Cover Girl Ad's and Music and she'll probably testify against Chris Brown. I'm very sorry this happened to her but she is sending a very bad message out that it's okay to be abused.

why you wanna force her to do wat you wat it is not your lifes. She is an adult and neither you or cover girl have da right to tell her what to do. You want role models look at your own families and stop watchin ppl on TV..........Take care of your own lifes instead of hatin on ppl dat you dont know

NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR THAT PRINCESS RIHANNA IS A CRAZY OBSESSIVE ISLAND B****. She set Chris up big time.

WHY IS SHE WALKING AROUND LIKE A DIVA, SHE CAN'T EVEN SING.

People have to understand that Rihanna is not a little American princess, she is Caribbean (like me) and so she is fiesty, can be vindictive, violent, argumentative, a bully and posessive. She planned this nicely.
A lot of Chris's fans said he had dumped her and was being forced to appear as a couple for the Clive Davis and Grammy awards.
She has been beating him up for months and he was too stupid to dump the b****. Maybe he likes rough sex or drama in his life.

NO ONE FROM HIS HOMETOWN, NO ONE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AND NO INTERVIEWERS HAVE EVER EVER SAID A BAD WORD ABOUT CHRIS, HE WAS SO LOVED AND RESPECTED. THATS WHY EVERYONE IS SHOCKED NOW.

Now people like P Diddy know something is not right because if this was Lil Wayne or some other guy he would believe it but this is Chris sweet Brown. *Diddy knows that Rihanna set Chris up but Diddy can't say it.*

Well Rihanna set Chris up and we are talking about it in the African-American communities because we have all seen the film, 'IT'S A THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE' and Roseanne Barr implied, 'Rihanna has Chris where she wants him'.

He is her's forever and he has to do whatever she says or lose everything. She can help his career or break his career.
I don't know why he didn't run months ago when she was slapping and punching him.

And the photo of her is fake, she left the party caked in make up and suddenly the make up's all gone. The hospital or police do not wipe of your make up if you've been battered, they take a photo straight away.

She banged her big forehead on the dashboard or window of the car and yes maybe CB slapped her in her mouth. There are no black eyes, no marks on her neck and no bite marks. She told the police a bunch of lies at the scene of the crime and when she has to stand up in court and put her hands on the bible we will see which version of the story she will tell.

I hope Gods ready to forgive her for her lies.

Martha in Ohio, I am very sorry to hear about the tragedy regarding your niece. Your're right, this is a very serious issue. The fact of the matter, however, is that Rihanna was not being honest and it's sad that she allowing this to continue. My heart goes out to you and your family though. My prayers are with you.

Her statement does read that she pretended to call her assistant and left a message which stated that she was on the way home and to have the police waiting there. Now what terrified woman would do that? According to the statement, he had already been punching her with his right hand and driving with his left so why in the hell would she say something about calling the police? That doesn't make sense. A TRUE BATTERED WOMAN WOULD NEVER DO THAT!!!! They would do whatever it took to pacify the attacker until they could get to a safe place. I know, because I've been there and that's something that any frightened person alone in a car with their attacker would do. Secondly, if he was punching her so bad, then how was she able to get the phone and pretend to call her assistant? Why didn't he just knock the phone out of her hand? That makes no sense. And finally, after all of this, she takes the keys out of the ignition and sits on them. These are all reports that she made. DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A VICTIM TO ANY OF YOU? If you look at the picture, and take away the bruises on top of her forehead where she just as easily could have hit her head while actively fighting a man in a car, then the extent of her injuries include a busted lip. There is nothing about her face that looks like she was punched over and over. If she had been her face would not even be recognizable. If you people would just pay attention to the details of the picture and HER STATEMENT, you would see that this mes does not add up.

The reason she doesnt want to testify because it's going to come out that she started the fight . She got enraged at the text and tried to take his phone, when he didnt let it go she started hitting him with her stilletio's. He was defending hisself, had she hit him in the right place she could have seriously hurt him. She should be getting just as much BAD press as he is if not MORE!!! She should have started it!!! PUNKS JUMP UP TO GET BEAT DOWN!!! She took him back b/c she know this SH** is all her fault.
