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.

I'm not sure I understand why EVERYONE keeps saying this: "If he is allowed to get away with this, Rhianna or some other woman WILL be abused again." It is not Rihanna's responsibility to stand up for women all over the world. She is one person and Chris Brown can't be punished for all the other men in the world. It amazes how some one these women on here are saying that Rihanna needs to do this and that because of what they went through. How is that you can feel so powerful through a blog site BUT when you were getting the crap beat out of you, you did not nothing. Why is that ALL the women that were/have/are being abused trying to speak through Rihanna??? Why didn't you do something about when it happened to you? Please don't say you did because you and I both know that that's a lie. AND if you did do something about it, it was years and years later. Trust and believe these charges will not stick. Chris Brown will get this case dismissed. LAPD has to give up that information and if they don't then that further lets you know that their are some secrets about the leakage that they don't want to get out.

What do you mean even Geragos can't get him off. Seems like that guy loses many cases. People think someone's good just because they're on tv. All you need is a publicist to get on tv. Either way, Brown seems guiltier with that kind of slimy lawyer. He's also ugly, but that's a separate issue.

Giving everybody the benefit of the doubt, it sounds like a toxic relationship that each party should run away from at all costs. Love is not supposed to hurt. If you've got two people who have no self control and have anger issues, it's only a matter of time before something terrible happens. Abusers don't get better when they are in denial. They just escalate. Bottom line, however, is that Chris Brown is a bigger human and Rihanna didn't stand a chance once she set him off (if she really DID set him off). If she hit him first, she's an idiot since she already knew his propensity for violence. However, before you pummel a woman's face with your fists because she disrespected you, stop the car and somebody get the eff out before somebody gets hurt or dies. There is no excuse for hitting someone....even if the person hit you first. Are we in second grade now only with more dire consequences? The same caution can be told to both of these kids: Stay away from each other...if he/she hit you once, he/she will hit you again. Nobody needs that crap.

Bet dollars to donuts she goes back...."oh he's changed, he said he'll never hit me again...." That is until the next time.

This is to miss princess rhianna to you! ARE YOU SERIOUSLY THAT DUMB! DONT YOU KNOW THAT HE WASNT THE ONLY ONE THROWNING LITS! SHE HIT HIM FIRST! THE LAW STATES THAT IF YOU ARE HIT BY SOMEBODY YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT YOURSELF. WHICH IS CALLED SELF DEFENCE! I CANT WAIT UNTILL JUNE 22nd SO SHE CAN PROVE ME RIGHT! JUST LIKE CHRIS AND HIS FAMILY SAID, THE TRUTH WILL SOON BE OUT. WHY ALL YALL DUMB ASSES THINK THAT STARS LIKE SHAQ IS HANGING AROUND CHRIS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE TRUTH. THATS WHY THEY DONT COMMENT AND JUST SMILE AND LAUGH AND WALK AWAY BECAUSE ALL OF THEM KNOW THE TRUTH. ONLY DUMB ASS WHITE PEOPLE MAKING STUPID ASS COMMENTS. NOW THEY CAN SEE WHO THE ABUSER REALLY IS BECAUSE SHE IS GOING TO BE CROSS EXAMINED BY CHRIS LAYWER! AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT RHIANNA DIDNT WANT TO HAPPEN! YEP THATS WHAT WE WANT! TAKE THE STAND RHIANNA! JUST LIKE CHRIS SAID HE STILL GOT ALOT OF FANS! AND THE ONES WHO NOT HIS FAN NOMORE NEVER WAS! SO WHITE PEOPLE SHUT THE HELL UP! BECAUSE YOU DONT BUY HIS MUSIC.......SO YOU I SUGGEST YOU BACK THE HELL OFF...SO JUST MOVE GET OUT THE WAY, GET OUT THE WAY!!!!!!! CHRIS BROWN ALBUM GRAFFITI BREEZY WILL DROP REAL SOON!!

-P.S. ALL YOU BOYS STOP HATING ON HIM BECAUSE HE IS FINE AND DEVINE! AND ALL YOU GIRLS YOU IF CHRIS BROWN TRIED TO HOLLA AT YOU YOU WOULD BE THE FIRST TO THROW YOUR PANTIES AT HIM. ESPECIALLY YOU WHITE GIRLS. YALL WOULD THE MAIN ONES TO TRY TO GET WITH HIM. CAUSE YOU KNOW HOW DESPERATE YALL ARE TO GET A BLACK BOY.
