Whatever your thoughts on Rihanna getting back together with Chris Brown, you have to admit she’s a dedicated girlfriend. She has long supported him, often sticking up for him and resorting to that platitude that he’s “misunderstood.” But today she took it to a sordid new level, accompanying Breezy to court for a hearing regarding his possible violation of probation — probation he is on because he viciously assaulted Rihanna in 2009.
That photo up top shows Brown, Rihanna and Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos departing for the courthouse in L.A. today (February 6). TMZ reports that during the hearing RiRi sat in the gallery behind Breezy and his lawyers, and that the proceedings concluded with the judge saying he needed more time to review evidence indicating Brown fabricated documents saying he completed his court-ordered community service. The judge also ordered Brown to meet with his probation officer about the the matter. Breezy and RiRi reportedly left arm-in-arm, Brown looking “dejected.” The next hearing is April 5, and if Rihanna’s present for that one, too, we’ll be pretty dejected. Though we probably shouldn’t be at this point.
