Rihanna's Command Performance -- In Court

5/28/2009 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown RihannaRihanna's lawyer just said the D.A. told him his client will be subpoenaed at the next court hearing.

Donald Etra said Rihanna will be called to the stand to testify at Chris Brown's preliminary hearing on June 22.

Etra says his client will cooperate and take the stand. It's not at all unexpected that the alleged victim would be called to the stand in a prelim.

Also today, the judge rejected a motion made by Chris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, asking for an order requiring the LAPD to ante up info regarding leaks in the case.

All i got to say is for these people that is saying all this stuff about Chris Brown and calling him names know they needs to stop because they dont know the real story about what happened in that car that night who hit who first but the fact of the matter is dont nobody know what happen but Chris Brown and Rihanna. Chris Brown is not the only one who had hit a woman before and I know its wrong for a man to hit a woman but we hear about it and some people even see it for themselves there dad or stepdad or there mothers boyfriend beating there moothers even worster then what Chris Brown did to Rihanna.

Wow, even Mark Geragos might not be able to get him off the hook if Rihanna sets out to hurt him in her testimony. I just hope that he doesn't get something ridiculous like x amount of community service...

this is all good news -- maybe now Chris Brown will have to bear the brunt of his actions and take responsibility for beating her up. Maybe, just maybe money will not buy his way out of this. And why should it?

Chris Brown should learn from Keifer Sutherland's recent court experience.
Keifer knows how to stand up, be a man, and take responsibility for hitting that designer in the Brooke Shields incident.

Why can't crybaby Chris Brown stand up and face the music for what he did?
The whole world knows he is guilty -- how can he say otherwise?
-- is he brain dead too?

Maybe, just maybe, you all for once will hear what actually happened that night - from both sides. And then you can demonzie the man for a valid reason if he just hit on her for no reason. If there was an actual 'fight' where she was slapping and hitting on him while he was trying to drive a high powered Lamborghini - then I have no problem with him getting probation. Rihanna needed anger management and Chris needed to be honest with her, if he did not want a committed relationship.

Looks like Chris Brown may have to face the music after all. Insert evil laugh. Let's show these young broads how unacceptable his actions were!!!!


Message from Eve (the only celebrity with some sense apparently) ---- "Hold on hold on!! I'm just gonna reach out to some of y'all out there and say this bluntly, why do ppl keep tryin to protect Chris Brown's ass hes guilty until proven innocent, and no man should ever raise a hand to a woman, I'm so sick of people kissin his ass..yeh i did just watch a clip of him saying 'he isnt a monster'...yeh motherf***r u are. let him or any other man come to me with power fists..id f**k him up"

"And a message to rihanna...girl your beautiful and talented and u don't need a n**** like that around u...ur special and deserve better & finally,no we dont no wat happened that night, all i no, is seein rihanna's beautiful face bruised and upset..that's enuff 4 me."

"I'm glad y'all agree with me...im so sick of the media trying to sugar coat a serious issue. thanks for your responses, keep them coming tho."

He pled NOT GUILTY. Did you see that poor girls face? Woman beaters are a special kind of horror. Thery believe their own hype. Throw the book at him. Do not buy his music, boycott his music and any he assists with producing.

SIENNA IS A HOMEWRECKING WHORE    

awesome, this is her chance to sing like a bird and put this violent animal where he belongs IN JAIL. he can't act like a "big man" and hit her so she can finally SPEAK without getting the sh!t kicked outta her. I hope she KILLS him in court, give every disgusting detail to show him for the disgusting monster he is.

Not sure about all of this    

Why can't crybaby Chris Brown stand up and face the music for what he did?
The whole world knows he is guilty -- how can he say otherwise?
-- is he brain dead too?

Speak for yourself please. I am a part of this whole world and I cannot say that I know he is guilty or he is not guilty I was NOT there. So if you were standing outside and saw them fighting then fine, you know he is guilty but as for the rest of the world, you can't speak for them. Also, I hope if she has some blame in this that she stand up and tell the truth and for him to do the same. Whatever happens happens but the TRUTH needs to be told, not two people out to hurt each other the best they can.

Praying for both of them

it's great rihanna is going to testify - that's brave of her to have to live through it again and recount the details to a courtroom in the name of the law. I hope that Chris Brown's "celebrity" status doesn't interfere in getting the punishment he deserves. Who ever told him he had that kind of right over anyone, especially a woman?
