Rihanna Goes to Bat For Chris in Court
Chris turned up to the LA Courthouse to face allegations that he faked papers logging his community service hours - which he was sentenced to after pleading guilty to viciously assaulting the Diamonds singer back in 2009.
Rihanna sat in the gallery to watch the hearing alongside Chris' mum as the judge informed him and his lawyer Mark Geragos that he needed more time to review the evidence presented to him over the claims. He has now been ordered to attend a meeting with his probation officer within 48 hours - and appear in court again on April 5.
Rihanna linked arms with Chris as they left the court and reportedly smiled at him in an attempt to raise his spirits after the hearing and was seen grinning as he was driven away to a recording studio session with her.
Chris' legal representative then gave his own damning take on what exactly is going on to the media outside of the venue.
