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.

Good,and this testimony will bury and destroy her for sure.But too bad she will lie there.She knows she is as guilty as he is,or even more guilty,but will lie only to save her "reputation" and save her "career".She's a liar and pathetic.If she testifies,she'll lie and she will be doomed,will be caught lying.Too good for her,now the truth will come out and she will be caught.Wonderful news.She's very stupid,and i won't feel sad or bad for her when she gets caught lying...she needs to be punished for what she did.She's a tramp, a stupid tramp and a liar.lol

First off girl I used to like Eve but the thing is the chick is a follower.She just wants her name out there and by speaking out about what happened [which she has no right to do so] she is drawing attention to herself just so people can see her as the good chick.Eve you couldn't even say that stuff to Chris' face so leave him alone.The last time TMZ caught you and asked you what you thought about it you never said that crap.If Chris was such a terrible guy then why would people defend him?His own friends in the industry still love him and hang with him.The same pap that was said to be suing Chris said the same thing that Chris is a good kid.How could Chris be so violent to one person and not to others if he was such a BEAST? If she thought he was such a bad man she should never have gone back to him because people beat people up on purpose and all he was doing was defending himself against her crazy ass.

LEAVE HIM ALONE YOU DO NOT KNOW HIM LIKE THAT.DON'T CAST STONES IF YOU HAVE DONE WRONG IN YOUR LIFE ALSO.YOU ONLY CARE BECAUSE THEY ARE CELEBS.NO ONE WANTS TO JUDGE REGULAR PEOPLE OR PEOPLE LIKE THEMSELVES ONLY PEOPLE WITH MONEY AND SUCCESS.LEAVE HIM ALONE.

Eve should ask herself why she is kissing Robyn's ass.It makes her look just as bad as you guys.EEEEEk.Eve be a leader not a follower.Why would you need to bash some 20 year old even if he did mess up,
why?
