A lawyer for R&B star Rihanna filed a motion in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday requesting a return of $1.4 million in jewelry the singer was wearing the day she was allegedly assaulted by Chris Brown.
Attorney Donald Etra said he has made several requests for three designer rings and a pair of earrings that were lent to Rihanna to wear to the Grammy Awards and were seized as evidence more than two months ago.
"The investigating officer gave me his opinion that photographs would be sufficient, and the D.A. said to write her a letter and they'd consider returning it," Etra said. "I have heard nothing since the last letter to the D.A."
Etra said that although the four designers who lent the jewelry were initially sympathetic to the situation, the delay has cost them money and they have begun to make daily inquiries about their property.
