A photo of the bruised singer surfaced online following Mr Brown’s arrest in February
for allegedly attacking her. Mark Geragos hopes to discredit police witnesses at a June
preliminary hearing according to a motion filed this week.

Mr Brown, 20, remains free on bail following his arrest on assault
and criminal threat charges.
If convicted, he could potentially face more than four years in prison

Mr Brown was arrested after rowing with Rihanna in a parked car
in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles on 7 February.
The alleged incident left the Barbados-born star with facial injuries
that forced her to cancel a scheduled performance at the Grammys later that day.

In his motion, Mr Geragos alleges that a Los Angeles Police Department officer
sold the photo of Rihanna to celebrity gossip website TMZ.

“The purpose of the leak was necessarily for profit and to vilify Mr Brown
and poison the potential jury pool,” he wrote.

Mr Geragos believes that if police files contain evidence of misconduct they may form
a basis for the case against his client to be dismissed.
The motions are scheduled to be heard on 28 May.
Mark Geragos is one of the highest profile lawyers in the US whose clients have included
Robert Downey Jr, Winona Ryder and Michael Jackson.
