Chris Brown’s Attorney Wants To Know Who Leaked Rihanna Battered Photo

The case of Chris Brown goes back to court in Los Angeles Thursday morning.

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, is expected to ask a judge for permission to gain access to LAPD personnel records so that he can find out who leaked a photograph of a battered and bruised Rihanna to the media.

Also during the hearing, a judge will set a preliminary hearing date for Brown. At that time, the judge will rule if there is enough evidence to bound the R&B singer over for trial.

Brown, 20, is not expected to be present at Thursday’s hearing, officials said.

Brown is charged with threatening and beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna in Los Angeles this past February.

Meanwhile, a day after a video of Brown was posted on YouTube in which he claims he’s no monster, the singer was sued by a paparazzo Wednesday, who said the singer’s bodyguards beat him up outside a Southern California gym after he snapped a shot of the vocalist.

“This is a specious and frivolous lawsuit by one of the paparazzi seeking publicity and a payday,” Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, said in a statement. “He’s done this before and lost. We will vigorously defend against this.”(Photo: Reuters)
