In a startling move, the DA has notified Rihanna’s lawyer that the singer will be subpoenaed at the next court hearing, meaning, she will be required to testify against Chris Brown. The judge also rejected a motion by Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, asking for access to confidential LAPD personnel records to find out who leaked the photograph. The judge explained that although the leak of the photo wasn’t the best thing, it has no bearing on the case.

In related news, Rihanna just bought an umpire’s mask and a BeDazzler to prepare for her court appearance on June 22. Because if she has to protect her face from Chris’ fists, she’s going to do it in style!
