Ri Ri made it clear how she feels about Chris Brown and the probation he’s serving for assaulting her up four years ago.

The R& B star sat behind her ex-boyfriend in court while a prosecutor asked a judge to allow the singer to restart the community labor that is his punishment for the felony assault conviction, CNN reports.

According TMZthe 24-year-old inger ‘blew Chris a kiss and said some supportive words to him before he entered the courtroom.’

The first time Rihanna appeared with Brown in court the day in 2009 when the latter was sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to stay away from her. Then, she was a witness for the prosecution.

“She thinks it’s utterly ridiculous what they’re doing to him,” Brown lawyer Mark Geragos explained when asked why the assault victim was in court.

He added that the victim attended the hearing to ‘support’ Brown and was unimpressed with the allegations.

“[She’s] completely supportive,” Geragos said. “She thinks it’s utterly ridiculous to him.”

He went on, adding that the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office has treated the rapper during his probation worse than any client he’s ever had.

“The D.A. is paralysed with the thought his probation will be terminated.  If that happens they won’t be able to jock him around like they’ve been jocking him around.”

The judge ordered Chris to meet with his probation officer in Los Angeles within 2 days to discuss the allegations and set another hearing on April 5 due to needing ‘more time.’

He explained that he needs to review the evidence by Los Angeles prosecutors and to speak to the probation officers.

Rihanna and Brown then left the courtroom ‘arm in arm’ with Brown looking ‘dejected,’ added TMZ.

They have made numerous headlines after  enjoying the Los Angeles Laker game together on Christmas Day at the Staples Center. The two sat court side and shared a bucket of popcorn while flirting and laughing uncontrollably.

They were “laughing and chatting” an eyewitness told Us Weekly. The twosome, who sat courside together, “looked happy together,” the source adds.

The two arrived to the arena in the same car earlier today, but got out of the vehicle separately. They eventually met up inside and sat down together in their courtside seats.

The 23-year old Rihanna was all dressed up for the occasion, wearing a black midriff-baring outfit, heels, gold choker necklace and red lipstick. Brown, 23, also dressed in all black with a leather jacket.

She sipped beer from a plastic cup and seemed in good spirits as the pair kept close during the game.

They were among a host of famous faces in the crowd, including Snoop Lion and Red Hot Chili Peppers star Anthony Kiedis.

The exes have been spending more time together recently and tweeting Instagram photos together. But the “We Found Love” singer alluded she was single on Twitter Dec. 18 by tweeting an E-card that read, “Being single sucks. The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f**k I want to do.”
