Before he knew more about this Chris Brown/Rihanna assault drama, 50 Cent had been making jokes about the incident on his website, ThisIs50.com.
Today, he explained himself to MTV News saying, “I thought that was something you could use for humor, like any other comedian would utilize current events to put into their actual

, being humorous a little bit. I put [reference to the incident] in a ‘Pimpin’ Curly’ skit a little bit. From the perspective of the character, I mentioned it.”
The leaked photo of a beaten and bruised up Rihanna was the turning point….
“After I saw the photograph, that wasn’t funny anymore. I didn’t have any information on it. You’re just going on what the public actually had. It shifts the whole thing. Even if you’re saying you’re in a dysfunctional relationship, I understand that. There’s a point when you’re already past a woman fighting you back.”
“You look at [the picture], and it’s obviously past that point. There’s some issues there that definitely gotta be addressed. Not to take any shots at Chris or Rihanna or take sides in any way, [but] it’s really not cool. It’s not funny anymore, so there will definitely be no more reference to that from me in any way.”
♦ Paris Hilton insists she “Loves” Rihanna and Chris Brown…
Trying as hard as she can to put down any rumors that she was involved with the attack Rihanna reportedly suffered from Chris Brown, is Paris Hilton.
The heiress tells Extra, “I have no idea how I got involved in that.”
She says, “People were calling me saying, ‘It’s your fault.’ I’m like, ‘What?!’
“I love Chris Brown. I love Rihanna. I’m friends with both of them so you know, the fact that I got involved in it was ridiculous — but I wish her the best. I love her. She’s amazing.”
♦ Randy Jackson talks about Rihanna and Chris Brown…
Randy Jackson, judge on FOX’s “American Idol”, spoke to Black Voices magazine about the controversy surrounding Chris Brown and Rihanna, in Jackson at LAX which the songstress was allegedly the victim of an attack by Chris Brown.
Randy says, “Once again, it’s really, really unfortunate. I saw them together at Clive’s [Davis] party on the night of the incident and just two very young talented people. Hate to see it go down that way.”
He mentions how tough it must be to be living a life in the public eye as a young person. “Every move is documented and the pressures for a young kid, being in this today. Man, I can’t even imagine.”
D.A. Still Waiting for Chris Brown Evidence, Arraignment May Be Postponed…
Chris Brown was a no-show at the Grammys. Now it looks like his next scheduled appearance might be off, too.
An initial arraignment date was set for March 5 following his arrest earlier this month for his altercation with Rihanna. But that court appearance “may not happen,” Los Angeles district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison tells E! News.
“We don’t have the evidence yet. [Los Angeles police detectives] are still investigating,” says Robison, who doesn’t expect her office to receive the case until at least next week.
“If [detectives] determine they need more time they’ll set a new date for him to come into court,” says Robison.
Once the LAPD finishes its investigation and presents the D.A. with the evidence, Robison says prosecutors must decide whether to file felony charges, reject the charges if the evidence is insufficient, or refer the case to the city attorney’s office if they decide the behavior was simply a misdemeanor violation.
Depending on the decision, Brown may not even have to appear in court. “He only has to come back if and when we file charges,” says Robison.
On Wednesday, an LAPD source also told E! News, “The D.A. is being even more thorough than usual with this case. They don’t want to mess it up.”
Prosecutors ordered the LAPD to seek evidence for a variety of felonies, including domestic violence, assault resulting in great bodily injury and—based on specific allegations made by Rihanna—even attempted murder, a source close to the investigation told E! News.
But as they build their case, the source says, prosecutors fear that making any serious felony charges stick could prove difficult in a case where there are no direct witnesses other than Rihanna and Brown.
Brown was booked on suspicion of making a criminal threat and remains free on bail.
He released a statement on Feb. 15, his only public remarks since the incident, saying, “Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired.”
While he has yet to face any formal charges, Brown has reportedly made a preemptive move to repair his shattered good-guy image.
According to the New York Daily News, the 19-year-old R&B star attended his first session this week in the Los Angeles area.
Should he be charged and convicted, such a course would almost be a certain part of his sentence.
The enrollment is said to have been masterminded by publicist/crisis manager Michael Sitrick, whom Brown hired in the wake of his arrest.

According to the NY Daily News Chris Brown has started to take anger management classes.
A source reveals that the R&B singer has made the decision to take classes.“Chris doesn’t actually have to go by law,” a insider tells us, “but he believes it will make him look better to the public, and he wants to try to get in a few classes before March 5,” his court date.
But insiders are rumbling that Chris shouldn’t be taking the anger management classes alone. “Rihanna is temperamental, too,” says our snitch. “They’re both too hot-headed for their own good.”
Adds another source: “It didn’t help that Rihanna grabbed the keys out of his rented Lamborghini and threw them down the street. She knew it would really infuriate Chris, and it worked.”
Additionally, a source for NY Daily News confirms that Rihanna will be present at the March 5th trial. “She’ll be there – she has to testify,” confirms our snitch, who doesn’t foresee any jail time for Brown. “If Chris is convicted, it would be his first offense. He won’t go to prison.”
Is Rihanna Pregnant?…
We just can’t keep up with the twists and turns of this situation. According to two tabloids this week, Rihanna was PREGNANT during the altercation with Chris Brown.
According to Star Magazine, Just days before the terrifying incident, [Rihanna] had consulted an ob-gyn after confiding in close friends that she believed she was pregnant.
“Rihanna was afraid to tell Chris about it because she was sure he didn’t want to have a baby,” says a source … [but] on Jan 26, Rihanna, wearing dark sunglasses, a black off-the=shoulder top, black pants and black boots, had a scheduled appointment at the office of Dr. Gregory Ewertz in Cedars-Sinai Medical center.
The National Enquirer has a similar story:
“Oh, my God, I could lose the baby!”, Rihanna has told pals that horrifying thought raced through her mind as her boyfriend Chris Brown brutally beat her – because she thinks she is pregnant…
Rihanna had missed her period and told friend that she thought she was pregnant. But when she told Chris he didn’t want to talk about it and was in sort of denial.”
“Wow! If she is pregnant, I wish her well. I hope everything works out.”
