SINGER Rihanna has asked the LA police to return jewellery taken as evidence the night she was allegedly attacked by her boyfriend Chris Brown. Police took earrings and three rings from the singer hours before the Grammy Awards ceremony in February. The items, which were on loan from a shop, are worth over $1.4m. Lawyer Donald Etra, who represents the 21-year-old star, said the detective overseeing the case did not object to the return of the items. The shop, which owns the jewellery, has asked Rihanna to give the goods back as soon as possible. Mr Etra told the BBC: Apparently, initially, the police felt that it would be needed as evidence. Now the belief is that photographs would be more than sufficient. BBC That being the case, were asking the District Attorney to return the pieces. The request for the return of the jewellery states that lawyers for Mr Brown are also happy for the pieces to be released. Mr Brown, 19, was arrested after rowing with Rihanna in a parked car. Both singers cancelled their scheduled appearances at that evenings Grammy awards. Later Mr Brown said he was sorry and saddened by the incident and had already sought counselling. He also withdrew his name from Nickelodeons Kids Choice Awards after coverage of the events shifted the focus from the music. Last month Mr Brown was charged with assault and making criminal threats and is next due to appear in court on 29 April. He denies the charges. BBC
