The couple appeared in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania courthouse for the rapper's trial. He faces attempted murder charges for the shooting of a man outside a bar last year (03).

Also among the courthouse crowd were Sigel's mother and Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records partner Damon Dash. Sigel is signed to the label.

No verdict was arrived at on Friday. The case will continue this week (beg26APR04).
