Private Chris Brown Court Date Nixed Without Explanation…
As Chris Brown gets ready to face the music, his legal team is apparently still getting its act together.
A private court meeting had originally been called for Monday at Team Brown’s request. On Friday, the in-chambers hearing was postponed, purportedly due to a scheduling conflict. Now, we have learned that the hearing has been canceled altogether.
“The next date [in Brown’s felony case] is April 6 for the arraignment. The hearing is not being rescheduled,” said a court clerk.
E! News previously reported that the 19-year-old singer’s attorney, Mark Geragos, has been trying to work out a plea deal, but Geragos has yet to comment on why the meeting was nixed.
Brown‘s manager did, however, deny an earlier report alleging the meeting was called because Brown was looking to ditch Geragos along with the singer’s management and PR team.
The embattled entertainer faces two felony counts—assault likely to produce great bodily injury and making criminal threats—stemming from the alleged Feb. 8 altercation with Rihanna following a Grammys pre-party.
Brown was not required to be in court for this week’s hearing.
In fact, his legal troubles appeared to be the furthest thing from his mind this past weekend. Brown was spotted back in his home state of Virginia riding a bike and later accompanying his cousin on a campus tour of Norfolk State University.
