Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty
The emotional rollercoaster took another turn this week, with Brown fronting up in court to answer the two charges hanging over his head; felony assault likely to cause great bodily injury and making criminal threats. He pleaded not guilty in each case.
As we should all be aware, the charges stem from an incident between Brown and Rihanna back in February. The two were traveling to a Grammy party together when Brown received a compromising text message from a mystery women (later identified as his MUCH older manager). Long story short: Rihanna ended up in hospital and Brown ended up under arrest.
The status of the pair's relationship continues to change from day to day (and tabloid to tabloid). The latest update has Oprah begging Rihanna not to take Brown back. Alternatively, they've recorded a song together and are getting married. The reality is probably somewhere in between.
Either way, Brown is due back in court on 29 April. Depending on what goes down, he's looking at either probation or up to five years jail.
