Rihanna Could Score Bling in Court

4/28/2009 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Our sources say tomorrow's Chris Brown hearing will not end with a plea bargain, although we know both sides are deep in discussion. But it looks like Rihanna could score something big.

Rihanna

Rihanna's lawyer is asking the judge to release the jewelry Rihanna was wearing when she was beaten. The jewelry was taken as evidence just after the beating and she wants it back -- it was on loan from jewelers and they either want her to fork it over or pay $1.4 mil.

We're told the cops would like to return it as well. There are reports the D.A. is objecting to returning it --
reportedly for leverage so Rihanna will cooperate. But our sources say the D.A. has not taken a position.

Rihanna's lawyer and Brown's lawyer want to take photos of the jewelry and use them if the jewelry ever becomes evidence in a trial. But legally, her lawyer doesn't have authority to appear in Brown's case -- in legalese her lawyer doesn't have "standing." So the judge could simply refuse to hear Rihanna's lawyer.

Will the judge release the hostage jewelry? Stay tuned! Hearing is tomorrow.

I cannot believe that this can't be settled. What a waste of taxpayer money. And if they have not settled by this time, they are not going to--there are only so many options here to put on the table.

I thought she took him back....she should get nothing. She is a big *hore who took back a man who beat her. She deserves nothing.

Why not name the jeweler that's threatening to sue her if she doesn't return the stuff right away? Unless they live in a cave they know where it is and why. Why would they make her situation even worse?
