Will Rihanna Testify Against Chris Brown?

by at . Comments

She may not have a choice.

Despite the Rihanna-Chris Brown reconciliation a few weeks after his allegedly brutal assault on her, lawyer Donald Etra says the 21-year-old singer could wind up on the stand in the felony assault case against her boyfriend, like it or not.

"She is planning to do everything that the law requires her to do," Etra told celeb news magazine Us. "If she is required to testify, she will do so."

She is almost certainly not eager to, though.

Rihanna was not present Thursday as Chris Brown, 19, briefly appeared in court after being charged with two felony offenses (assault likely to cause great bodily injury and making criminal threats) in the now-infamous Feb. 8 incident.

Rihanna did not request a restrictive order that Brown stay away from her, and Etra said his client has provided no comment on the outcome she wants in the case.

"The fact is, what Rihanna desires most is that it be quick and expeditious," he said. "She wants to get back to her life and her career. She is doing fine."

"She really appreciates the love and support of her fans."

The attorney declined to comment on reports that Brown is currently taking anger management classes, and dismissed questions about the new shocking details of the case. On rumors that Rihanna was pregnant at the time, Etra said:

"We are not going to discuss that. Rumors are just gossip. There is no point. Idle rumors are gossip, for which there is no basis."

Brown, who is free on $50,000 bail, is due back in court April 6.

Whether Rihanna testifies against him or whether there will even be a trial in this case remains up in the air. His lawyer is surely trying to get a plea deal worked out.

But regardless, should she stay with him after all that happened?

Honestly Rihanna has a right to let him back into her life. If you love someone they deserve a second chance.

Rihanna is a very stupid girl to take this loser back. It's not if but when Chris Brown will beat her again, he has some deep seated anger that he is unable to deal with in a mature way. Lets all hope he doesn't kill her some day like OJ did to Nicole.

I don't think what he gets will be what he deserves though, that's the crap part! He deserves to go to jail but celebrities never get the proper punishment, they either stay in jail for like a day or buy their way out of it somehow.

I think personally any man hard enough to hit a woman is hard enough to go to jail. I dont care how mad a female makes me I would never lay my hands on them, unless im imbracing them with love. chris brown should get what he deserves!!!
