Following their reported reconciliation in Miami over the weekend, Rihanna is now reportedly refusing to press charges and/or testify against boyfriend Chris Brown in his highly-publicized domestic assault case.
The Los Angeles District Attorney and investigators have been working overtime to try to build a case against the singer, but as of press time, still no charges have been brought forth against Brown. And now, it looks like their biggest hope is now backing down.
A file on the case, including Rihanna’s original statement to police as well as witness accounts, is expected to be handed to the Los Angeles County District Attorney later this week.
And even without Rihanna’s help, California law allows prosecutors to charge an individual with domestic violence. But the question is: do they have enough evidence?
As far as the couple’s reunion in Miami on Saturday (February 28), it’s rumored that Rihanna and Brown did more than just work out their differences.
According to a report by Star magazine, Brown may have proposed. The glossy tabloid style mag says that Chris apologized, begged for forgiveness, and proposed to her on the spot.
“All she’s ever wanted was to be with him forever,” a source tells Star. “Rihanna is looking for the husband-and-two-kids deal before she turns 25. She believes in fairy tales, and she wants to live hers with Chris. She was totally up front and confessed to him, ‘I can’t live without you.'”
The mag even says they got married at Diddy’s $14.5 million Miami mansion on Star Island, calling a minister in to seal the deal. This, however, has yet to be confirmed.
