Cupid's Pulse Article: Rihanna Is Supporting Chris Brown in iPhone Theft AllegationCupid's Pulse Article: Rihanna Is Supporting Chris Brown in iPhone Theft Allegation

Rihanna is standing by her ex, Chris Brown, while he awaits the decision on whether or not he’ll be charged in theft of a cell phone, RadarOnline reported.  Brown has been accused of stealing a woman’s iPhone as she snapped a picture of the R&B singer while he sat in the back of his car.  Brown purportedly snatched the phone saying, “B-tch, you’re not going to put that on the internet” and drove off.  A source close to the situation told the site that Brown is claiming that he absolutely did not steal the phone.  Rihanna has subsequently stated that she will stand by him during the investigation and whatever the future holds.  Given the past these two have together, Brown was humbled by Rihanna’s firm support.  “He told her he appreciated her despite the criticism she has endured for recording songs with Chris [Brown] and welcoming him back into her life,” the source said.

What do you do if your partner gets involved with the law?

Cupid’s Advice:

Getting in trouble with the law is not fun, especially when it involves your lover.  While it all depends on the situation and how you choose to handle it, Cupid has some advice to help:

1. Be their support system: “Through sickness and health, and ‘til death do us part…”  Getting involved in the law can fall somewhere in between those two.  Having your significant other in trouble with the law can be a stressful situation for the both of you, but try to be there through the difficult time.

2. Ignore the negative feedback: In this situation, there’s always going to be at least one person who’s going to degrade your decision to stand by your mate.  While the backlash may get to you, develop thick skin and try to remain positive about the circumstances.

3. Move along: If your partner is in serious trouble with the law and it gets to the point to where you no longer have the patience to deal  with it, then it may be best for you to move on and live your life.
