New York, (ANI): Rihanna is finally all set to break four months of silence, and to testify about her alleged beating by boyfriend Chris Brown.
The 'Umbrella" hit-maker could face a deluge of questions about the choking, biting and 'barrage of punches' she allegedly received during a violent pre-Grammy night lovers' quarrel last February. Prosecutors have subpoenaed the 21-year-old singer, so that they can have sufficient evidence to try Brown on felony charges of assault and making criminal threats.
However, R 'n" B star Brown, 20, has pleaded not guilty. "(The subpoena) is not a guarantee they will call her as a witness, but I fully expect that they will. She will testify truthfully," the New York Daily News quoted Rihanna's lawyer Donald Etra as saying.
