Rihanna tweeted that she was praying for Chris Brown and wishing him the best at his hearing on Monday — and apparently she's ready to back that up with even more public support.

Chris is still on probation for his 2009 assault of Rihanna from when they were openly dating. Now RadarOnline says Rihanna is ready to go to court on November 1 to tell the judge Chris has apologized to her on multiple occasions and accepted responsibility for his actions, so there should be no hearing to decide if he violated his probation with possibly unsanctioned travel and a positive test for marijuana.

"Rihanna would also tell the judge that Chris isn't the same person now, as he was on that fateful night when he assaulted her," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline. "Rihanna doesn't care if she is criticized for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him."

What do you think of this? Are you happy at the idea of Rihanna and Chris moving back toward their original love story or disappointed that she wants to defend him?
