Remember when the world was shocked after Chris Brown beat Rihanna to a bloody pulp, choked her, and left her unconscious on a sidewalk? I do, but I think I may be the only one. And Lord knows that by the way Rihanna is acting, she’s forgotten all about it. Once she didn’t take the stand and testify against Chris, it was pretty much determined that Chris would suffer almost no consequences for totally and completely losing his cool in the worst possible way.
And now, after some more time has passed and Chris has made a public apology, it seems that Rihanna not only wants to forget the entire thing but wants Chris to get an even lighter punishment than he did! Rihanna apparently thinks it’s completely unnecessary that Chris has a stay-away order against him when it comes to RiRi and she wants it dropped to a lower level. What level is that exactly? It’s the level that says that Chris can’t ‘annoy, molest, or assault’ her. In other words, it’s a legal mandate ordering Chris Brown to act like a decent human being. From Digital Spy,
“Rihanna has reportedly lodged an appeal for the restraining order against Chris Brown to be removed.
Due to face sentencing today for assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna in February, Brown is expected to be given a five-year probation and 180 days of community service as well as an order not to come within 50 yards of the ‘Disturbia’ singer.
However, Rihanna’s lawyer Donald Etra issued a statement through People, saying: “If asked, we will tell the court that all that’s necessary is a level one order: That Brown not annoy, molest or harass her.
“No stay-away order was ever requested by Rihanna, nor did she ever believe it was necessary.”
Although Rihanna will not attend today’s hearing, Brown is expected to be present.
The R&B star, who was recently seen reunited with Rihanna at the Trump International Hotel in Manhattan, is allegedly preparing to fulfil the sentence in his home state of Virginia. He will also be required to undergo domestic violence classes for a year.
Further reports suggest that the charge against Brown for making criminal threats is also likely to be dropped.”
So I guess that Rihanna really has forgotten about what happened that night. It’s too bad really. Out of all the awfulness that happened, something really good could have come out of it if Rihanna had decided to do the right thing and take the opportunity to speak out about women’s issues. Or at least show young girls that it’s not okay to let guys hit you. I guess she’s not interested in doing any of that.
In other Rihanna news, she was out and about lately and while there were no visible bruises, a gold band on the ring finger of her left hand was quite visible. So, is Rihanna really back together with Chris Brown as it’s been recently rumored? That would certainly explain her trying to get his sentence reduced. And, are they secretly engaged? With all the other stupid decisions she’s been making lately, it wouldn’t surprise me if they were.
