RiRi called 'big fat zero as role model for girls'

8 February 2013

New York, Feb 8 (ANI): Rihanna has been criticized for standing by Chris Brown at his court hearing on Wednesday.

The Barbadian singer's show of support for Brown, who viciously beat her, at his court hearing received a harsh verdict from Tina Brown.

The editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast slammed the popstar via Twitter for the stand-by-your-assailant moment, calling the pop diva "a big fat zero as a role model for girls," the New York Daily News reported

Rihanna, 24, sat front row in court on Wednesday next to Brown's mom as the judge decided whether he completed the community service he was sentenced to after brutally assaulting the 'Umbrella' hitmaker on the eve of the Grammy Awards in 2009.

Prosecutors have asked that Brown repeat the 180 days, even though he claimed he fulfilled the full sentence.

"I'm not revoking probation," Judge James Brandlin told the court.

He ordered Brown to interview with probation officials and the singer is due back in court in April 5 for a follow-up. (ANI)
