Rihanna to Cops: Gimme Back My Bling!

by at . Comments

Jewelers who lent Rihanna approximately $1.4 million worth of accessories the night of the alleged Chris Brown smackdown apparently want it back.

Since late March, Rihanna has been trying to recover the borrowed jewelry from the LAPD, who took the items into evidence in their investigation.

"Since there appears to be no evidentiary value to the continued holding of this jewelry, we respectfully ask the court to order the return of this property to [Rihanna] without further delay," her lawyer Donald Etra wrote in a court request.

The items: two yellow metal hoop earrings with white stones; one yellow metal ring with white and green stones; two yellow metal rings with white stones.

A source adds that Rihanna also borrowed a Gucci dress for the February 7 Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party she attended, which also has not been returned.

Etra stated in the court documents that the owners of the jewelry were going to hold Rihanna liable if the accessories weren't returned, with the total cost and damages related to their late return as more than $1.4 million.

According to the court papers, the LAPD detective on the case referred Etra to the prosecutor on the case, who apparently has not responded to his requests.

"At this stage [of the Chris Brown case], we're not even sure what evidence is going to be entered into the case," DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.

"For now, we don't have any further comment on this matter."

The LAPD also declined to comment. Brown, who has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges, assault and criminal threats, has a court date Wednesday.
