COURTROOM

Rihanna Reveals Her Story

Monday afternoon, singer Rihanna, 21, will face 19-year-old Chris Brown, the ex-boyfriend and fellow pop star who allegedly beat her before the Grammy Awards, in a Los Angeles courtroom. The New York Post reports that Monday's hearing will establish whether there is enough evidence for the case to go to trail. According to a professor at Loyola Law School, "By getting her [Rihanna] to testify at the prelim, the DA takes away Chris Brown's ace in the hole—that maybe she'd chicken out of testifying at trial."
