Los Angeles (CNN) — Rihanna left no doubt about how she feels about Chris Brown and the probation he’s serving for beating her up four years ago.

The pop star sat behind Brown in court Wednesday while a prosecutor asked a judge to order the singer to restart the community labor that is his punishment for the felony assault conviction.

It was Rihanna’s second time in a courtroom with Brown. The first was the day in August 2009 when Brown 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 said when a reporter asked why his assault victim was in court.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office has “tortured” Brown during his probation worse than any client he’s ever had, Geragos said.
