Rihanna is standing by Chris Brown as he awaits the decision on whether he’ll be charged in the theft of a cell phone, reports RadarOnline.
“Chris told Rihanna that he absolutely 1000% didn’t steal that phone, and Rihanna has told him she believes him,” says a close source. “Rihanna has also told Chris that she will stand by him during the investigation, and whatever the future holds. This was extremely humbling to Chris given their tumultuous past, and he told her how much he appreciated her unwavering support to him, despite the criticism she has endured for recording songs with Chris and welcoming him back into her life.”
Chris is accused of stealing Christal Spann’s iPhone on Feb. 19 right after she snapped a picture of him in a Bentley at Miami’s hotspot Cameo. He’s vehemently denied the charges.
Rihanna “has made it very clear to everyone around her that she doesn’t want to hear anything negative about Chris. She isn’t interested in listening to the fears her friends have about the the two young singers spending time together,” the source says.
