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.

Anonymous, you really have problems:

The sad truth is that the truth really is going to come out and the whole world will be watching. I love Rihanna but I don't believe her story. I think that this is the beginning of the ending for her. Her picture does not equate with what she said happened, the bruises were gone the next week, and she admitted to sitting on his keys. At first I was so mad at Chris, but now I really think that we've all been duped, and I hate to see how the world reacts when the real truth comes out. Please keep Rihanna in your prayers, guys.

I'm really beginning to wonder about this whole thing too. If he beat her down, then hell yeah he needs to pay. But if she was attacking him while he was driving, then that is different. If what people are saying about her is true, then she really could have killed them. Girls should not hit boys either. It's not fair that one has to pay and not the other one if that is what really happened, and that is what a lot of people are starting to say on the streets and even today in the barbershop. They even had her picture passing it around and saying that the media made it worse than what it really was. I looked at it and she looked pretty bad to me, but somebody made a good point: Did this happen because he hit her and punched her or was it a struggle between the two. They say nobody has seen his mugahot. Is that true? If that is true, then this whole thing really isn't fair.

RIhanna was beaten, not by a woman but by a man! Let's just say she did hit him first, he is a man, and men are stronger...they can do more damage! Chris is at fault! She will tell the truth, she is no longer with him, and hopefully justic will be served! Chris should do jail time..every other man that beats a woman has to, why not him? I don't care if he is famous or not..They need to make an example of him!!!!

All the positive women or men in here are making good points so keep speaking your mind.You are the intelligent ones above all the haters who have the same generic meaningless crap to say.The haters have all said the same thing but all the positive people have something different and enlightening to say,which all makes sense because they are unbiased.

Keep spreading love!

Good he knows he sent those pictures of rihanna, and from what ive read she has some pics of him he wont like too, it crazy how he looks all innocent and sweet and hes an abuser and a nasty person. She can do sooooo much better she could have anyone she wants, I hope the rumors of her and Kanye West are true, paybacks a B****. They get caught up in the moment and never think about the payback they have coming, there is always a paper trail of everything, picture, phone calls, text messages, other people with things, it crazy.
