Rihanna wants a Gucci gown and $1.4 million in jewelry back from the LAPD, E! Online reports. The singer filed a motion in Los Angeles this week for their return, so she can give them to companies that loaned them to her on Grammy night. The LAPD seized the dress, hoop earrings, and metal rings as evidence when they arrested Chris Brown for allegedly beating Rihanna in February.

"If the DA doesn't need the items, and the LAPD doesn't need the items, there's no reason why they shouldn't be returned," Rihanna's lawyer tells People. The Brown and Rihanna legal teams say pictures of the evidence will suffice, but city officials are yet to respond. According to Rihanna's filing, an LAPD detective has ignored requests for the items' return.
