Rihanna Wants a Deal Too

4/6/2009 7:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pretty stunning ... Rihanna's lawyer just spoke to reporters, as if he is somehow speaking on behalf of the man who allegedly beat his client -- aka Chris Brown.

Donald Etra: Click to watch
Donald Etra just said Rihanna would be pleased "if it [the case] were over quickly" -- as in plea bargain. Etra was asked what kind of deal would she want -- he said she recognized it wasn't up to her. He acknowledged there were efforts underway to resolve the case -- so he knows...

As we first reported, Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, and the prosecutor are in the throws of plea bargain negotiations and one source says a deal is "close." Rihanna has made it clear -- she does not want to go to court, although Etra says she will cooperate if ordered to do so.

If you're wondering why Mark Geragos didn't speak -- we have no doubt prosecutors would be pissed off if he stepped in front of the mic during negotiations ... so its all the more intriguing that Rihanna's lawyer answered all of the questions.

Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

I said that she wouldn't want to go to trial when this first came out. Then she'd have to admit that she assaulted him or--lie.
This "victim" crap is total BS. Wailing away on a guy when he's driving?? She could have killed them both. Typical "brat" who went wacko at the thought that her man would think someone else was "finer" that her. Been there--done that. If she was punching on him in the car anyone who thinks that was the first time is retarded. It escalated to that. I've had jealous GFs before but one waited til I at least stopped the car and turned it off before she tried to wail on me. I didn't do what Brown did thou but I wasn't driving either. Tell a woman who just got back from a tour in Iraq "It's OK for a woman to hit a man but he can't hit her back" and she'll kick your sorry butt up and down the street. In court it would be found out that she gets violent when she gets jealous. Obvious she isn't not wanting to go to court th avoid the paps cuz she's total "Look at me--Look at me"

This should be real interesting to watch if Prosecutor's cave. They have a history, a long HIStory of caving to abusers.
