Rihanna 'supports' Chris Brown in court

SUPPORTED: Singer Chris Brown appears in court for a probation revocation hearing at the Criminal Justice Center in downtown Los Angeles yesterday (Feb 6). Prosecutors are seeking probation revocation because they say they could not find credible evidence that Brown completed his community labor sentence stemming from the 2009 beating of his girlfriend Rihanna.

RIHANNA SUPPORTED Chris Brown in court yesterday morning (Feb 6) for his latest hearing stemming from his 2009 assault of her.

The 24-year-old singer, who recently admitted she was back together with the R&B star, followed him into the Los Angeles courthouse behind Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins.

According to sources on TMZ, Rihanna "blew Chris a kiss and said some supportive words to him before he entered the courtroom."

Brown, 23, was in court to hear allegations from the Los Angeles prosecutors office that he may have lied about completing his community service.

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos and the Richmond Virginia Police Department have vociferously denied the allegations.

TMZ reports the judge ordered Brown to meet with his probation officer in Los Angeles within 48 hours to discuss the allegations.

The judge scheduled another hearing on April 5 due to needing 'more time' to review the evidence presented by Los Angeles prosecutors. He also needs to speak to the probation officers.

Rihanna and Brown then left the courtroom 'arm in arm', added the gossip website.

Mr Geragos gave a news conference after yesterday's hearing where he said: "I have never had a client who has been tortured like Chris Brown has."

He added that Rihanna had been in court to 'support' Brown and was unimpressed with the allegations.

"[She's] completely supportive" he said. "She thinks it's utterly ridiculous to him."

Expressing his fury at the District Attorney's Office, Mr Geragos said: "The D.A. is paralysed with the thought his probation will be terminated. If that happens they won't be able to jock him around like they've been jocking him around."

Brown was in court following allegations by L.A. prosecutors on Tuesday that there is no credible evidence he completed his community service sentence for assaulting Rihanna, and citing several other incidents that they say point to anger management issues with the singer.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office filed a motion which focuses on issues with Brown's community labour in Virginia, citing numerous discrepancies and claiming the R&B singer was essentially unsupervised.

E! News reported that Brown took to his Instagram account to slam the continuos allegations, writing: "I can handle the hate but enough is enough yo! 'Im a human being and I honestly think I deserve respect i'm sick of being accused…I'm just tired of this sh**.

"A day in my shoes is a day in hell," he added.
