*Radar Online reports that a source close to Rihanna is saying she’s prepared to defend her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in court following his probation violation.
As reported, Brown tested positive for marijuana during a recent test hearing in Virginia, violating his probation in relation to his assault on Rihanna in 2009. According to Radar Online, Riri says she’s willing to defend him at his next hearing in Los Angeles.
”Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
”Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on Nov. 1 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 apologized to her on multiple occasions.
”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.”
As for critics who will attack the Barbados native for defending him, the source said: ”Rihanna doesn’t care if she is criticized for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him.”
