Rihanna to defend Chris Brown in court

26 September 2012, 12:36

Los Angeles - Rihanna is reportedly prepared to go to court to defend her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

Chris tested positive for marijuana during a test hearing in Virginia recently, violating his probation in relation to his assault on Rihanna in 2009 and the You Da One singer is happy to defend him at the Los Angeles Superior Court, asking the judge not to set a date for a hearing because he is sorry for his actions.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support.

"Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on 1 November for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn't set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologised to RiRi on multiple occasions."

'She genuinely loves him'

"Rihanna would also tell the judge that Chris isn't the same person now, as he was on that fateful night when he assaulted her."

She is said to be unbothered if critics slate her for defending her ex.

The source said: "Rihanna doesn't care if she is criticised for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him."

Rihanna has previously confessed to still loving Chris, despite his actions.

She said: "We went to a mutual friend's party on a yacht.

"It's awkward because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me."
