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.

Never noticed...I wonder if they've been examined to find hair or skin...and if so, I wonder whose hair and skin was found?
I'm still wondering why they had to dust the car for fingerprints...There was no one else involved (hint...hint)...what's the purpose?

Of course the DA wants to keep it. It's considered perfectly legal in the U.S. judicial system to coerce witnesses/victims into saying/doing whatever the D.A. thinks the witness/victim should say; this is a real help getting a conviction even if the accused is not guilty. Most likely the DA will want a cash ransom as well, or maybe it will just get "lost" in the DA's office. I still wonder who the criminals are.

Rhianna deserved what she got, women should be smacked around a little when they mouth off. Glad to see she got back with him, shows that she knows her place, and after a few more beatings im sure she'll learn to act the proper way. I'm glad to see so many teen dirls support Chris B and not Rhianna, it shows they understand, they will probably make good wives/babymama's when they get older, or whenever they get knocked up.

I hope they don't have a plea bargain, I want him to take the stand and try to explain his not guilty plea.

You are right this situation has brought awareness to something very serious - domestic violence. By Rihanna not speaking out and even being seen with him - this brings bad attention to the situation.

If the DA needs leverage, then his care is really weak. I though Harvey and everyone said that this case was a slam dunk.

Chris Brown should do jail time!maybe it will straighten his young ass out! He knows what he did was wrong, and if it was just another regular guy who did this he would go straight to jail! why should chris brown get special treatment? Im sickened how They are saying how hes young,we all make mistakes,hes getting help from his pastor,but the fact still remains he beat up rihanna and she has suffered physically &emotionally.Lets not forget he choked rihanna &almost killed her,if he succeded Im sure everyones opinion would be different.Thats why Cris Brown has this shady lawyer,cuz he got OJ off for killing his exwife! I hope rihanna doesnt go back to chris.She deserves a real man who does not beat up woman!
