Marvin Grant did not enter a plea during a court appearance Monday in Pleasanton, and asked to be assigned a public defender. He was arrested last month.

Police say Grant met the woman through Twitter and the two exchanged e-mails and phone calls before agreeing to meet at a Livermore hotel July 28. According to court documents, Grant attacked the woman after she declined his advances.

The 33-year-old Grant, who is also known as Marv, appears on MC Hammer's reality show on the A&E cable network. The show follows the rapper and his family at his Tracy home.

I am not trying to be heartless, & I am not saying it is this womans fault, I am a rape survivor myself, however, what the hell was she doing &/or thinking meeting someone for the 1st time at a freaking hotel???

Wow!! To be quite honest, he looks a bit challenged. He probably threw Hammer’s name out there and the woman went for meeting him. What kind of woman is she, meeting someone you just met over the INTERNET at a hotel. Is that crazy or what? They both wrong and know better.
