Looks like Rihanna will have to take the stand in Chris Brown’s felony assault case on June 22nd, her attorney confirmed:
“The judge advised me that there will be a subpoena for Rihanna as a witness at the preliminary hearing,” Donald Etra told E! News after a morning hearing. “She will definitely comply.”
And according to Chris’ attorney Mark Geragos, Chris will also be present at the hearing and will listen to her testimony: “He has to be here anytime a witness is called” said Geragos.
On Thursday, a judge denied a motion by Geragos, to require the LAPD to release confidential records to determine who leaked a photo of a beaten Rihanna to the media. Chris has pleaded not guilty to assault and criminal threats charges stemming from their February incident.
