If Rihanna takes the stand at ex-boyfriend Chris Brown‘s preliminary hearing Monday, it will be the singer’s first time publicly talking about what happened the night her boyfriend allegedly attacked her.

Various reports claim she instigated their quarrel by hitting him after a woman he was reportedly sleeping with text messaged him the night before the Grammys.

Whether or not she instigated the fight has little bearing on Brown’s physical retaliation–which has yet to be detailed from Rihanna’s perspective. The 20-year-old singer has pleaded not guilty in connection with assault on his ex.

UPDATE: Chris Brown accepts a plea bargain, ordering him to 180 days probation in Virginia; 5 years probation for felony assault; and completion of a domestic violence counseling program, according to CNN.

Who was tacky enough to sit courtside with a Rihanna knockoff at the NBA Finals in Florida? Yes, none other than Ri-Ri’s ex Chris Brown.

Three days after the former R&B lovebirds were spotted watching the Lakers game separately last week, Brown attended the NBA finals with a carbon copy of his famous ex, who sat just seats away.

Despite sporting a Rihanna-esque ‘do, the lookalike has been identified as singer Teyana Taylor. We can’t help but to wonder if the up-and-coming performer was styled to look like Ri-Ri just for this high-profile game.

Making her first official comeback since her debacle with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna (in a stunning bustier and sky-high do) looks radiant as the star of Kanye West‘s new music video for “Paranoid”.

While we love that she’s trying to put her battered past behind her, we kinda wish she didn’t do the manic driving sequence in the end, with the caution sign for “Paranoid Road” in the background…a little too close to reality for us!

In summer ’07, reports surfaced linking Rihanna to movie star Shia LaBeouf after the two stars were spotted eating and drinking together in L.A.

Now, in an interview with Playboy, LaBeouf admits that he did in fact date the pop princess–but their match wasn’t one made in heaven.

“[I was] filming a sword fight when I got the message. I said, ‘Can this be my life?’ ” LaBeouf said in the magazine’s June issue about how Ri Ri made her first move. The two later decided to hookup in person via text message.

“It never got beyond one date,” he added before saying his mom was the sexiest woman alive. “The spark wasn’t there. We weren’t passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends.”

The budding friendship of Katy Perry and domestic violence victim Rihanna caught Blindie’s eye yesterday as the two singers were photographed together on a boat in Rihanna’s native Barbados.

Rumored to be inseparable since her alleged beating from ex Chris Brown, Perry seems like just the kind of empowered chick Rihanna needs in her life. Having listened to the “I Kissed a Girl” singer’s album on loop since its debut, Blindie feels Perry’s message of empowerment and self-worth will keep RiRi away from Brown!

“It’s nice to have good girlfriends,” Perry told MTV. “I pride myself on having cool chicks in my life, and [Rihanna’s] a cool chick…I love [Rihanna’s] style … She’s one of those unaffected people.”

Rihanna is reportedly in talks to star in a remake of The Bodyguard–and Blindie couldn’t be more excited!

The battered pop star would reprise Whitney Houston’s diva role in an updated version of the 1992 flick, opposite Step Up and GI Joe hunk Channing Tatum (as Kevin Costner’s brooding bodyguard role).

The remake would be a “young and sexy take” on the original, an insider tells the New York Daily News.
