Rihanna Down with the D.A.

3/30/2009 6:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Reports circulating that Rihanna is not cooperating with prosecutors in the Chris Brown case are bogus, according to prosecutors.

Sandi Gibbons from the L.A. County D.A.'s office tells us, "We deal with her attorney who says she is a cooperating victim."

Even if Rihanna clams up, the D.A. is used to prosecuting these cases without a cooperative alleged victim. That's especially true in this case, where there are graphic photos (the worst of which have not been seen), along with Rihanna's statement to cops that Brown has beaten her before and the violence was escalating.

Chris hit Rihanna and the whole world goes crazy. What is wrong with him giving her a little love tap or two?? They are back together and the issue should be put to rest. Lots of women get a kick out of their guys beating them!!!!

i think rihanna should be a friend to chris brown nothing more she has her whole singing career ahead of her. Chris Brown still has alot of issues to sort through. She seems to be a confused young lady blinded with love, like tina turner said whats love got to do with it.

It's Rihanna attorney's job to continue to say she will cooperate. Any attorney worth his salt is never going to say his client will not cooperate with the law. His statement is always the same …”she is willing to do anything that the law requires her to do.” Do you think he is going to show his hand to the DA? Well, the law can not compel her to testify. A domestic violent victim can be subpoena but under California law cannot be forced to testify and cannot be subject to any penalty for not testifying. California passed that law last year as not to victimize the victim twice. Rihanna has been victimized again when LAPD allowed her picture to be released to the news media. The DA can subpoena her and she can show up but never answer any questions regarding the case.

Thank you, Jesus, Thank you, Lord for Justin Timberlake and Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" performance with Keith Urban. We the people got to see something much better at the Grammy's than lame slugger Chris Brown and make up mugger Rihanna. Thank you, Lord, Thank you, Jesus, for keeping them away, Thank you, Lord. Keep them away all day. Thank you,Jesus, for making them go away.

Soooooo, what do you think is gonna happen first?

1. Madonna is gonna realize she'd better cover up because she's gotten old and looks it. That body is going nowhere except maybe a nursing home.
2. Angelina and Brad's children will stage a revolt, capture their parents and dispose of them and then return peacefully to their own original countries.
3. Kevin Federline will get fatter and uglier and Britney will get higher.
4. Tom and Kate will detox themselves out of existence and Suri will celebrate by playing with real children.
5. The Shamwow man will do a new commercial showing how the Shamwow even cleans up prostitute blood.
6. Chris Brown and Rihanna will stage a TV special featuring the both of them in the ring in a re-match.

OR, maybe, just maybe, we could all think about something really important right now---Obama just announced that there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves from North Korea as they fire a missle our way. How about chewing your cud on that one?

Oh, I know. Madonna's aging body and Rihanna's beat up looks are so much more important to ya, aren't they?

Why are yall so concerned with everybody's relationship? Yes if he hit her he needs to be punished, but it's not any of yall's business. I think if you were in her shoes it would be a hard situation for you if you were in a relationship and all of a sudden this happened and first of all we don't even really know what really happened. Yeap I said it. Did you see it happen? I didn't think so.

Just Noticing    

I'm sick of her waffling, partying every night, non-statement-making, getting stupid tattoos butt. I'm going to sit back and watch this play out, AFTER April 6.

UMMMM Hello #60 Chris is laying low because every time he even thinks of trying to go out in public low life's like TMZ and people like alot on here crusify him and say he isnt showing any remorse.. So ya he is just staying out of sight but and FYI he goes to LA Fitness in LA and plays basket ball with regular people all the time. And he has gone out to several public places in VA sence he has been there. He isnt hiding from no one or nothing.. So get off him!! He made a bad mistake and doesnt need every slack jawed moron trying to second guess his every move! TO EVERY ONE ELSE...
Honestly... How would you feel if you were him.. You cant say, because you are not Chris Brown and cant possibly understand what he feels or what he is going through.... April 6th is coming and we will all get answers... chris is, at this time bound by certain rules that prevent him from saying or doing anything to apease you PERFACT people. ITS A LEGAL CASE the less said the better for him... AND WE didnt see Chris right after the altercation so we have no idea as to his condition. I just felt I should cover alot of ground here. ALSO Rihanna's statement said he was beating her AS HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR, PUT HER IN THE HEAD LOCK AS HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR, BIT HER LEFT EAR AS HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR!! I went back and re-read the whole thing... By the time he pulled over and parked the car suposed pounding by had stoped. And AFTER the car was stoped she took the keys sat on them and the fight endued... She by her own admission said she was beating him with her cell phone and one of her shoes WHILE HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR.. Tell me you would just sit there and take all that ... NO ONE Would because as humans our natural instinct is to fight back... He probably tossed her stupid cell AFTER he got it away from her when she was beating him with it.. and thats when she resorted to the shoe... High heel to be exact... Its a sad situation and no one wins here. But SHE isnt acting like anyones victim either... did you see the Sham Wow guy's hooker he beat... NOW SHE WAS BEAT TO A PULP!! Think Oprah will have a show in support of her, Isnt she a woman too? I highly doubt anyone feels sorry for her because she is JUST a hooker and not consitered a human.. Right.. after all when the cops find one dead the coad is for an NHI ( Non-Human Involved) So I guess no one will be asking for the creepy sham wow guys head on a skewer anytime soon... AND HE IS A BONIFIED PERVERT, and WOMAN BEATER!!!
But like I said it was ok because she is JUST a hooker... RIGHT??
Seriously want to see what BEAT to a PULP looks like go look at her face... THAT is what IF RI-RI was beat to a pulp SHOULD have looked like...She was not beat to a pulp and needs to fess up to lieing on an official police affidavit... BTW thats a criminal act too!!

truthfully yours    

What galls me the most about this, is all the love being shown Brown by the black males like Diddy and other rappers. These guys could do such good by letting him pay the penalty for what he's done, and telling the young men who respect them that this is wrong. Things will never improve in the gangsta ghetto until the role models start acting like responsible men, so that the younger guys will want to emulate some good behavior.

You know, if it were a TMZ photographer that beat Rihana like that, they would get more than just a little jail time!!!!!! It just goes to show, that Rihana is a stupid little twitt, that suports domestic violence. Do her handelers really think that it is going to improve her image with the public, by not cooperating with the DA? If they do, then they are as stupid as she is and deserve whatever backlash comes their way.
