Rihanna Trying To Get Out Of Testifying!

| Filed under: RihannaLegal MattersChris Brown

wenn-brown-rihanna__opt1.jpg

Okay, Rihanna, we really felt for you when this whole mess erupted.

But you're sort of making it hard to continue to love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First, we hear you're back together with your abuser, Chris Brown.

Then, we hear you are recording a duet with Beat Her Down.

And, now we're hearing that you don't want to speak in court if asked to testify.

Ridiculous!

Beat Her Down's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has requested a meeting with the judge in his assault case to discuss Rihanna's possible silence in the court room.

Rihanna's attorney, Donald Etra, is in agreement with the request, both lawyers believing that Rihanna's position was compromised when her involvement in the case and other information leaked, and that she should no longer be subjected to public scrutiny.

Oh come on, Rihanna!

You're setting a bad example!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rihanna you stupid ass bitch OMG



  2. 2

    She may not want to implicate herself. If she hit him first, she could be charged too. This whole situation is a sad mess.



  3. 3

    she's setting a bad example alright……………with that hair



  4. 4



  5. 5

    who?



  6. 6

    she is pathetic



  7. 7

    How could she be charged? What are you saying? There's a difference between slapping someone on the face and trying to KILL someone. She'd better testify before he kills her. Or maybe that's what she's afraid of…



  8. 8

    That's right girl…keep those lips shut…nobody likes a snitch…shhhhhhhh…take another beating and love it.



  9. 9

    Stupid Bitch.



  10. 10

    nah beotch you can't cry wolf and run!!!



  11. 11

    what the hell??
    im beginning to regret
    worrying for this girl,
    if she herself doesnt care about her well being



  12. 12

    Frankly, I am tired of this story. It is what it is! She wants to get it over with. And so do a lot people. I wish her the best. So, whatever she does is on her.



  13. 13

    Both of them need to get the fuck out



  14. 14

    SHE DOSEN'T HAVE TO TESTIFY UNDER CALIFORNIA LAW.IT'S ALL UP TO THE POLICE AND LAWYERS.OF COURSE SHE'S NOT GOING TO TESTIFY,DICKHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mario.

    You are the one setting a bad example. How fucking dare you judge a person for the way they react to being abused. You sitting so-very-publicly in judgement of this woman is irresponsible and counter-productive. When a person is the victim of abuse, the last thing they need is to be publicly ridiculed for the way they deal with the trauma of it.

    Please show some restraint and respect for the gravity of the situation.



  16. 16

    Geez…you know what? I think I'm all set with her. A bad example is right!



  17. 17

    dumb



  18. 18

    WHY DOES THIS SURPRISE YOU! She is an idiot, she's nothing to idolize, she's a stupid human being who despite all that she has is brainwashed by this turdface into thinking he loves her…I don't care what happened, once a man hits a woman it's over! You know, there a lot of women who can't escape abusive relationships because there is no one to help them out of it…Rhianna has limitless resources and fans supporting her (god knows why anymore) yet she goes and pulls this shit. She is a terrible person for doing so and she's sending a message of hopelessness to any woman who might have had a smidgen of hope.



  19. 19

    After they 'made up' you didn't think she would want to testify do you? She is killing her career. No one likes a supposed 'victim' going back to her abuser. If that's what she wants, so be it, but the public should be sure to kill her career AND his. There are consequences for everything. No one should have any respect for either of them.



  20. 20

    Well if his lawyer asks her if she hit him first, she risks her own assualt charge if she tells the truth, or a purgery charge if she lies and says no. Kinda sucks. These two shouldn't date, she sounds toxic and he sounds crazy violent.



  21. 21

    I could give TWO SHITS about these two ”artists” and they're stupid fucking music. BUT RiRI you're a dumb fucking mess!!!! WTF are you thinking??? you stupid ass!! YOU ARE LETTING HIM WIN!!!!! YOU ARE LOOKING LIKE THE BIGGEST FOOL!!!! so so sad!



  22. 22

    Blahhh don't feel bad for these retards. They don't feel bad for you..



  23. 23

    Re: umabdt

    If she threw the first punch, then she is the one who could be held responsible for the fight. He can get charged with a disproportionate response but the fact is, if she hit him first, it's battery and his lawyers will be all over that. As they should if it's true.



  24. 24

    If she doesn't testify she's retarded!! Obviously if Chris Brown beat the crap outta her he doesn't love her one bit. It's a shame she is a great singer, guess tweens gotta look for someone else to look up too.



  25. 25

    She's like the Donald said….. A LOSER.



  26. 26

    Thank you Perez!! Don't let either of them off the hook………I'm feeling the same way you are. It's one thing for her to have such low self-esteem as to take him back, but don't project that out to your fans!!! Terrible example!!!



  27. 27

    I was listening to her song Umbrella, I think she is singing about Chris and she says she will always be there for him, especially in hard times. I am not quoting the song but, if you guys listen to it, it says she will stand by this person no matter what.



  28. 28

    It IS her fault! She's a bitch!

  29. buck says – reply to this


    29

    more street cred issues….don't talk to authority, ok to hit women, don't speak correct english, when spelling be sure to use a 'z' instead of an 's' , get tatted up, jail time is good.



  30. 30

    I think the whole thing is now totally ridiculous. I felt extremely bad for her at first, but how do you feel bad for someone when they go running back to it? He'll continue to hurt her, and probably other women as well, and she's just allowing that to happen by refusing to testify, as well as by continuing to support and be with him.
    Also, I thought Mark Geragos was still hiding in the hole he dug himself after the Peterson trial!



  31. 31

    I HATE THIS DUMB BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE HE DOES IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL HE KNOCKS SOME SENSE INTO HER.



  32. 32

    Re: Samantha07
    What's your point? Because of her song she's going to stand by him after he beat her and threatened to kill her?



  33. 33

    I agree. Rihanna, I am sickened that you would take a woman-beater back. You can do better. Even I (a commoner!) would never EVER stay with a man if he hit me. My husband of 10 years has NEVER HIT ME OR HURT ME, not even once. That is how a man should treat you. You are not the strong, smart, beautiful woman I once thought you were. I am ashamed that you are condoning his actions by taking him back. You are telling girls everwhere that it's ok if a guy hits you. You are helping to justify abuse. SHAME. One day you will learn. You are young, you can have any man….and you CHOSE AN ABUSER. Sad and stupid. One day you will look back and regret not kicking him to the curb and moving on to someone better, hotter, smarter, kinder. THERE ARE men out there like that you know!



  34. 34

    Maybe she is fed up with all the attention brought by the media. I think she only wants for everything to be over as soon as possible… OR, like many posters speculate, if she testifies she might screw herself.



  35. 35

    You're certainly not one who should be lecturing anyone about setting a bad example. The hate filled half truths that you spew on this site set a bad example for all human beings. You are pathetic.



  36. 36

    Wow! What a great example you are to young girls Rihanna! … I felt for you like crazy when this all went down and now this is the straw that broke the camels back! Seriously!!! Pull your head outta your friggin ass and get it together already! … I hate to say it but the Donalds right you are a loser!



  37. 37

    She is the perfect person for Covergirl Cosmetics. She can use them to cover all the bruises, and you know she get the makeup for free. Maybe the next time he beats her ass, he'll put her brains back in. Rhianna=dumb bitch.



  38. 38

    Last time I checked Rihanna is a grown ass woman and she doesn't need anybody and Perez buttfucker telling her what she needs to do. It's her life, she can live it how she wants.
    As far as setting a bad example, if kids are so stupid that they can't make decisions for themselves and rely on celebrities, then the world is fucking doomed.



  39. 39

    chris needs to hit her in the head with that umbrella again



  40. 40

    she may be afraid,but if she stays with him I will lose respect.

  41. jaims says – reply to this


    41

    I am sooooo sick of this topic! First of all…..No One besides Rihanna and Chris were in the car, so no one knows exactly what happened that night.
    When I was in my early 20's I had some nice white-trash arguments/fights with my boyfriend, now husband. He has NEVER hit me or abused me an any way. We were young, drunk and stupid. I definitely provoked him or hit him first!
    These 2 are young and didn't mean for this argument to develop into this media circus. Perez STOP giving your opinion - you have no idea what these two have been through or are going through.



  42. 42

    everyday when i hear shit like this, it makes me have less and less respect for her.
    she's setting a bad example for all young girls and women out there.



  43. 43

    Re: Fluffy Kitty
    You said it. What a freakin hypocrite



  44. 44

    i disagree with SeanOfTheDead, I think Perez should keep saying what he thinks.. he´s the only one to say something at loud to douche bag brown. Keep calling him beat her down, because he´s an arrogant bastard who isnt even sorry for beating a woman. He should be in jail. Im never going to support his music again. And hers either while she´s with him.



  45. 45

    my thoughts were that she'd lie in court but then be probed by her original statements etc which tell the truth after it happened but if her lawyers made deals with dickheads lawyer then she won't be probed. i think he'll get off lightly and have to learn to watch his back cos Jay Z will have the heavies on him. what she does now is on her - dickhead's career is over but she's killing hers for not respecting herself - is he really worth it!!



  46. 46

    I felt bad for Rhinna when everythign went down but I dont' care now. If she wants to throw her life away on a piece of shit like Chris brown, let her. Chris Brown is just going to get a slap on the wrist and then he'll do it again to her or some else. He'll never pay because he has the best lawyers, who only see $ signs. Its not fair to woman are in abusive relationship like this. If Rhianna did hit Chris Brown, its no excuse, but she needs to admit to it. This will forever be over her head if she doesn't take care of this.



  47. 47

    Re: Fluffy KittyRe: Fluffy Kitty
    You said it. What a freakin hypocrite



  48. 48

    I've NEVER even thought about hitting a girl but I'm about ready to beat a bitch if she really is back with this punk.



  49. 49

    She apparently needs another blow to the head, maybe that'll make her come back to her senses. Or she really is as dumb a bitch as she looks.



  50. 50


  51. 51

    the way he's saving his career is by ruining her's. Pretty sad.



  52. 52

    YOU DUMB WHORE! HOW COULD YOU?!? IF ANYTHING WOULD MAKE UP YOUR MIND THEN YOUR MILLIONS OF YOUNG FANS WHO LOOK UP TO YOU SHOULD.

    PAY THE PRICE OF FAME AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT!



  53. 53

    Re: jaims

    You say we don't know, yet, you're acting like you do know exactly what happened because you went through something similar. Um, did you not see the picture of Rhianna. Chris hit her. Plan and simple. Check the photo out and then you'll know why people are still talking about it!



  54. 54

    You know what Madonna did when Sean Penn hit her? Waved goodbye to his ass when he did his jail time and she went on tour. Take notes.



  55. 55

    annoying



  56. 56

    I really think Chris knocked something loose in her head when he hit her.



  57. 57

    Re: jaims – Word!



  58. 58

    She is a mess! A wicked bad example to young girls everywhere. Who cares if she hit him first, that is no excuse for him to beat her. Stop the car. Get out until she does and drive away. You do not hit a woman period!!! I refuse to endorse anything either of them do. No more Cover Girl for me!!



  59. 59

    If I was the DA I would punch her in the face.



  60. 60

    OMG!..I can't believe this…they should throw her ass in jail too, if she fails to testify…



  61. 61

    I HATE THIS WHOLE MESS, SHE LIKES TO PLAY HARD AND HIT HER BOYFRIEND, THEN SHE CALLS THE COPS ON HIM, AND THEN SHE IS BACK WITH HIM. SHE IS ACTING CRAZY, SHE STARTED IT AND HE IS THE ONE SUFFERING THE CONSEQUENCES!!!SAD



  62. 62

    Re: jaims – YOU SAID YOUR HUSBAND NEVER ABUSED OR HIT YOU IN ANY WAY? THEN WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR POINT? ITS OBVIOUS CHRIS DID INFACT HIT HER SO QUIT TRYING TO COMPARE STORIES YOU STUPID PILE OF IGNORANT SHIT!!!!!!!!



  63. 63

    What a stupid bitch….like Perez said…its hard to love you anymore!!
    Pathetic bitch…she deserves all her fans and everyone else hating her.

    BOOO RIHANNA



  64. 64

    Going back to Chris is a real disappointment; he's always come across as fake to me on TV. While his music is amazing his personality seems to need some work. A lot of these celebrities forget that when they become the world figures that they are they hold responsibility not only to themselves but to their fans and career as well. You're sending out the wrong message Rihanna. Right now you hold so much power in sending the message out that domestic abuse is never okay. You're 21 years old better men will come your way. Think about yourself, your own happiness, your family, your career, your fan base. Everything you do now in this fragile stage is going to ripple effect. You need to worry about that. You can say these people (us) don't know you all you want. But ultimately we are the ones responsible for your fame; we provide your meal ticket. Get your shit together.

    Chris Brown should be punished for what he did to you. Period.

    She will SO live to regret not even standing up for HERSELF. Mark. My. Words.
    Bailing on herself will haunt her forever.

    Well since she got back with the guy; why in heavens name would anyone expect should would want to testify?



  67. 67

    All abused should be forced to testify. No one should be allowed to hide from the court system and pretend nothing happened and this isn't a big deal. Is she going to lie? Probably, but that's why there is a prosecuter. And if she lies, she's purgering herself and should go to jail.

    As for sympathy for Rihanna? She can suck my balls!

  69. 69

    PEREZ, Rihanna or Chris Brown's careers are far from over. DID EVERYONE FORGET that Britney was married twice, divorced twice, was a horrible mother, lost custody of both of her kids, got committed to a mental hospital, and still doesn't have control of her life/career (her father does) and shaved off her fucking hair!!!!— and she just made a COMEBACK. THIS IS JUST A GLITCH IN THEIR CAREERS. GET THE FUCK OVER IT. THEY HAVE!!!!!



  70. 70

    Rihanna and C.B. deserve each other.
    .
    Re: the last star – Rihanna is not going to testify because she loves him!



  71. 71

    I have come to understand that she enjoys being strangled once in a while. Well she certainly deserves to be, so Rihanna: ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!!



  72. 72

    Once a victim of domestic violence in my teens I went back but I had a kid and did not have the support she has. There is no excuse, they have no kids and she has a HUGE support system around her! GET OUT RIRI NO MATTER WHAT PROMISES HE MAKES HE WILL HIT YOU AGAIN!



  73. 73

    RI! RI! HAD BETTER NOT TESTIFY OR CHRIS WILL TEACH HER A LESSON WITH THE BACK OF HIS HAND SHE'LL NEVER FORGET!

    74

    calling her names is also abusive. they are both very young and deserve help, not condemnation. i know that when my boss physically assaulted me at work, i was extremely terrified in court and didn't say a word–i stood there like a zombie until the judge told me to sit down. court is scary, even if you're just a witness.



  75. 75

    She should not be forced to testify, why should she be? She loves him, and maybe thats what she likes, a dominant man to show her who is boss.



  76. 76

    she is stupid!

    i really dont care anymore, IF SHE LIKES IT i hope she gets it =)



  77. 77

    Ok so what if she is sending a bad example. We don't need a silly 21 year old to be our youths role model. Look at other famous people in hollywood: paris hiton making a sex tape, amy winehouse on drugs, lindsay lohan dating a lesbian…Do parents actually want these people to be their childrens role model? I don't think so.



  78. 78

    Trump was right, surprisingly. She's a loser.

    Re: BBBoricua loves Angels & Demons… – I KNOW!! LOVE IS A POWERFUL EMOTION!!IN THIS CASE A UNHEALTHY EMOTION!!



  80. 80

    An online signed petition FORCED him out of the Kids Award running.
    Is there an online petition going around to take her off the Cover Girl and Gucci endorsements?? Seriously, can any of you provide the link, please?



  81. 81

    OMG she is so stupid. He is just using her. I hope she realizes it before its too late.



  82. 82

    you want to kno why she not testifying…cause she attack him first…its even on tmz…why do u think she is being silent…..and he didnt try to kill her…he evn gave her a chance to get out the car when he was trying to push her out…she dint leave cause of the seatbelt…its because she didnt want to…why you ask cause they were in a fight….



  83. 83

    ….well fuck them all then First Fuck Chris Brown for being a woman beater and a cheater!!
    Second Fuck Diddy for providing solace for a woman beater and his victim…your actions did nothing but continue this fuckery!!
    Third: Fuck you Rihanna….you weak minded, broken down battered syndrome bitch

    Boycott this whole two faced bunch of idiots…..singing songs of love and shit when in real life they are all full of shit…..they ain't makig one nickle from me ever again!!!!



  84. 84

    I am so over her. She blew it with me big time. We were all on her side but not any more. She deserves what she gets. She is obviously lacking some brain cells. I won't support either of them any longer.



  85. 85

    geez i think this is just not our place to judge that girl, she can be happy that there even is a trial most of the woman or girls don't even get that… and i still do not think that we have the entire story



  86. 86

    shes only 20- she'll regret it soon enough - a very hard lesson to learn , but as for that beady eyed fuck chris brown, he better watch his step -Jay-Z might have to Roc-A-Fella!



  87. 87

    This shit is getting tired,really fast. If Rihanna likes getting the shit beat out of her, LET HER !! She is not like most beaten woman. They usually don't have any choices. This Hoe has all the money, power, and support and STILL CHOOSES to be with someone who LIKES beating on her. what a dumb fuck. Waste



  88. 88

    You now what there's a saying in Spanish that says "El que muere por su propia mano hasta la muerte le sabe a gloria"…translation…"That who dies by their own hand, even death taste like glory"… so i don't care what she does…i felt sorry for her but she obviously doesn't care about herself…so whatever! with her…i feel bad for those that WANT to get out of something like this but really can't….she's with him because she wants to…she makes it hard for people to continue to support her because she obviously doesn't want justice to be served…ya me cayo gorda!



  89. 89

    At the risk of sounding redundant….I would be willing to bet that this fight was mutual combat and that she hit him first. Im sorry but if you dont want to get hit, then you shouldnt hit someone male or female alike. They both need therapy. We will never really know what the hell happened between them.



  90. 90

    according to UK magazing Look they did get married :(
    i wish she would wake up and realise the danger she is in



  91. 91

    "But you're sort of making it hard to continue to love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    i completely agree with mario here… FO SHO



  92. 92

    Fuck it.. Both of them can just beat the shit out of each other and live unhappily ever after.. Rihanna I now think you are a dumb bitch and I have said it before and I'll say it again.. I HOPE HE KICKS YOUR ASS VERY SOON because you obvs deserve it.. Idiots attract I guess. You both are done in my book. Next please.



  93. 93

    You're only finding it hard to continue to love her NOW, Perez? This shit has been going on for weeks and the rest of us have been screaming this since day one. She's just as fucking guilty as him.



  94. 94

    WGAF about Rihanna, she's lame and she knows it…



  95. 95

    Re: Gingerooni – No just saying that was her way of thinking before it happend, I am not making a point just mentioning it, I had never really listened to the words and thought it was intresting. I worked in domestic violence in a large city and am very fimiliar with this issue, I just found it intresting.



  96. 96

    The scariest part of what happened was that he told her, Wait til we get home. This shows that he has a history of abusive behavior and she's used to being abused. Nothing will change until she wants it to. I think her career is over.

  97. dlo says – reply to this


    97

    she is setting a bad example….boycott



  98. 98

    They both irk my nerves. That's what happens when you snoop. She got pissed and hit him first, and he's mad cause he was busted and even more pissed that she put her hands on him fir. If your looking for something your gonna find it.



  99. 99

    STUPID BITCH!!!



  100. 100

    I still kinda feel for her. when you are in an abusive relationship it is always emotionally abusive too. he may have her thinking that he is the only one who loves her. the only one by her side. it sounds twisted, but it is true. they make you feel like you have nothing without them. i know.. i was there. now many years later, i can see what he was doing, but at the time i thought he was the only one who loved me. it is all in the cycle of things. 1st they are the best thing that has ever happened to you, then slowly they start putting you down where you lose all your self worth and before you know it you are wrapped around their finger. i am sure that is where rihanna is now. she believes she has no one else b/c that is what he made her believe. she will wake up one day. hopefully it won't be too late. i hope she understands even if he doesn't mean to, it only takes one punch the wrong way, or in the wrong spot on her body to kill someone.
