LOS ANGELES (AP) — With the woman he assaulted throwing him a kiss, Chris Brown walked into court yesterday to face allegations he failed to complete his community labour sentence for Rihanna's 2009 beating.
A judge asked for more information and scheduled another hearing in two months.
Rihanna, the glamorous singer whose bruised face became a tabloid fixture after she was beaten by her then-boyfriend on the way to the Grammys, has been dating Brown again.
She arrived with the R&B star, his mother and two other women and blew him a kiss as he entered the courtroom. They left together after the short proceeding in which Superior Court Judge James Brandlin set the next hearing for April 5.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, said he was disturbed about the way the district attorney handled the matter and said he would be filing a motion opposing the prosecution's move to modify Brown’s fulfillment of his community labor sentence.
Prosecutors, who said they could find no credible evidence that Brown had completed his community labor in his home state of Virginia, asked that he start all over and put in 180 days in Los Angeles County.
Prosecutors have suggested there was either sloppy record keeping or fraudulent reporting.
