Just In: Rihanna Camp Speaks Out Again Plus Paul Walker Speaks Out About Chris Brown!

Rihanna’s People Speak Out About Chris Brown Again!!

A source “close” to Rihanna tells X17Online exclusively:

”Ri is doing great. She is trying to put Chris on the back burner. They still have joint business assets so they are still keeping in touch indirectly.”

”Rihanna is focusing on her new album. She has a lot of creative control so she is doing it her way. This is the first time she has been able to do that.”

Chris, howewer, is a mess. He lost a lot of weight, about 15 lbs. I do know that Chris is also in a depression and is drinking a lot. He almost got his butt kicked in VA about a week ago.”

PAUL WALKER CALLS CHRIS BROWN ‘A GOOD KID’

Paul Walker is excited for the release of his upcoming action flick, “Takers,” even though two of the movies actors, T.I. and Chris Brown, are facing real-life action of their own. T.I. is set to serve a yearlong prison sentence, and Brown faces arraignment on charges of assault and criminal threats after his alleged altercation with Rihanna in February. Walker, who is currently promoting “Fast & Furious” (out Friday), doesn’t think his 19-year-old co-star’s legal troubles will have any effect on the film. “I hope everything gets worked out, ’cause I really like him,” he told MTV News about Brown. “I feel for him, ’cause I know it’s hard, but he’s going to be all right.” Walker got to work closely with Brown while filming “Takers” last year. “He’s just a kid,” Walker said. “He’s just cool. He’s fun. … He’s a 19-year-old kid, just high on life. Just having a good time. Always dancing and singing, never stops, always got a smile on his face. Really good energy, good kid to be around.”

In “Takers,” which also stars Michael Ealy, Hayden Christensen and Idris Elba, Walker plays one of the bad guys the audience will root for. “I play this guy John Rodway,” he explained. “It’s a big heist movie. It’s all about the robbery, and these guys coming up, and they’re like the bad-guy crew that you can’t help but pull for, ’cause they’re all good guys. They’re really tight. It’s ‘Heat’ meets ‘Point Break.’ It’s got that feel to it.” With the Brown chatter out of the way and the plot synopsis done, Walker was ready to share his one criticism of the film. It seems at the time of the interview Walker didn’t realize that the film, which had the original title of “Bone Deep,” had been changed to “Takers,” a detail we are sure will make him quite happy. “I’ll tell you one thing: The title’s gotta change. It’s gotta,” he joked about the original title. “We can talk about this all we want, but it’s gonna be under a completely different title when it comes out. I’m sorry, that is not sticking.”

Just In: Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty – Preliminary Hearing Set for April 29th

Latest Updates on the Case

Chris Brown had his day in court to face two felony charges of making criminal threats and assault. The 19-year-old singer pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles courtroom Monday stemming from the alleged Feb. 8 beating of his girlfriend, pop diva Rihanna. The singer dressed in a dark suit stated “Not guilty your honor,” when asked how he would plea. His mother sat in the front row of the courtroom, her eyes red from tears.


Rihanna did not appear in court, but her lawyer Donald Etra was present. “What happened today was that Chris Brown entered a not guilty plea to both of the felony counts against him,” Etra said to reporters after the hearing. “Rihanna’s position in this case remains the same, mainly she will do everything that the law requires her to do,” he said when asked what role the 21-year-old singer will play in the case.

Etra went on to say that both parties are attempting to resolve the case “expeditiously and fairly” but fended off personal questions regarding his client. “It’s not my role to discuss her personal relationship,” he said.

Brown’s attorney Geragos hopes to reach a plea deal will the prosecution that will not allow Brown to serve jail time. The young star faces up to four years in prison if convicted on both charges.

Brown first turned himself in to authorities on February 8, hours after the alleged altercation. He was later released on $50,000 bail and both he and Rihanna missed scheduled appearances at this year’s Grammy awards. Although the couple has since reconciled, in the past few weeks Brown has been out of the spotlight emerging last month to at a girl’s college basketball game during their schools violence against women awareness campaign. Rihanna is back in her native Barbados with friends and family.

The singer is due back in court April 29.

If Brown, 19, is convicted, the sentence could range from probation to four years and eight months in prison, the office said.

The attack is said to have happened during an argument that began when Rihanna, who had been dating Brown, found a text message from another woman on his cell phone, according to a sworn police statement.

When Brown appeared for his first hearing a month ago, Rihanna’s lawyer asked the judge not to prohibit Brown from having contact with her while he faces felony charges of assaulting her.

Dear Diary: My thoughts on the Chris Brown and Rihanna Case

I came across an article I read on E! Online yesterday about Chris Brown appearing in court later that afternoon. Now let me just tell you there were a bunch of comments made on that issue. There were 3 people who commented that made me realize what everyone is doing to harm this case. I feel people need to really look at it in different perspectives. The media tend to forget that celebrities are human beings. They make mistakes and those mistakes are things that they have to live with on a daily basis, especially being in the spotlight 24/7. One of the people who commented made a very important point.

She stated as follows…

mika Mon, Apr 6, 2009, 7:56 AM

WHY IS IT OKAY FOR RHIANNA TO BE DRINKING AN PARTYING IN BARBADOS GOING OUT EVERYNIGHT AT THE CLUBS AN DINNERS BUT CHRIS BROWN CANT GO NO WHERE DOES HE HAVE TO HIDE UNDER A ROCK THE KIDS 19 U DONT THINK HE KNOWS WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG WHAT ABOUT RHIANNA SLAPPING HIM IN HIS FACE N HE TOLD HER TO CHILL OUT WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG BUT WHY WE AS WOMAN THINK WE CAN HIT A MAN BUT HE CANT HIT US BACK THE DOUBLE STANDARD IS RIDICUOUS IF U CAN SWING YOUR HAND THEN LOOK FOR A SWING IN RETURN MY HUSBAND NEVER HIT ME NOR I NEVER HIT HIM BECAUSE I HAVE NO RIGHT TO DO SO NIETHER DOES HIM GIVE THIS STORY A REST IT IS OVERRATED

Another person made this comment…

Disgusted Mon, Apr 6, 2009, 8:19 AM

Yeah, so the little white lady who reports these stories is infatuated with the whole ordeal. Chris Brown should not be punished for defending himself. Rihanna shouldn’t be drinking her **** life away everywhere. She seems to have some sort of problem and needs an intervention! I think he has suffered enough and has been de-famed enough. It’s time to move one people.

Another said this…

Tracie Mon, Apr 6, 2009, 10:08 AM

My prayers are with Chris and Rihanna. It will be so nice when this is behind them. They have both suffered greatly during these past months mostly because of the media. I wish them both the best. I look forward to seeing them back doing what they do best. Good luck today Chris. Rihanna stay strong.

This is my opionion on what they all said...

I agree with Mika and Disgusted….It’s so true, what you both are saying. I am a fan of the both of them, but I just feel like Rihanna has thrown Chris Brown under the bus lately. She has been seen out & about in LA, Hawaii, NYC, and now Barbados partying her ass of. Her driver has also been seen slamming into cars when they leave the clubs. Chris was recently seen at a basketball game, raising awareness for the “White Ribbon Campaign” which is dedicated to Anti-Violence against women. If they so-called say that Rihanna and Chris were seeking help together where was she supporting him for his good deeds. Oh yeah partying it up at clubs. I think it’s fucked up what she’s doing. He’s like a turtle hiding in his shell. And she’s the new party animal. Paris Hilton look-out Rihanna‘s coming out to party harder.

Now don’t get me wrong I am a fan of the both of them. I agree with Tracie when she states about seeing this all go away and them coming back and creating great music. I would love to see what happens next, but I feel that they should give him a chance and let him say his side of the story. We already heard what Rihanna‘s family have been saying to the media. I feel like it’s been too much already.

The reason I say Rihanna‘s family is because, I feel like Rihanna‘s dad needs to give the media a break and stop looking for something new to say every time he is questioned for details. He has already spoken to the media about yesterday’s hearing.

Here’s what he had to say….

Rihanna’s dad tells US Weekly, “So what happened? Somebody else did this to Rihanna then. I just would like to see justice go in the right direction.”

Fenty explains, “I don’t want his career to be damaged — it’s damaged already. I think he’s a talented guy, but everybody should have to pay. When you do the crime, you do the time. I don’t want to see him locked up for a long time — I just want him to acknowledge and get some help.”

Unsatisfied, Ronald continues, “Who did it — that’s the question now. If he’s not guilty, who did it? He should say ‘guilty’ and let the court be leaning into him and try himself to the mercy of the court, see if he gets a fine…”

“Now he’s going to go beyond that and it could go longer, it can be even worse. It can be worse for him in the long run.”

I know he feels for his daughter and it’s understandable, but this is Rihanna and Chris Brown’s issue. You don’t see Chris Brown‘s mom talking to the media every 5 minutes about how Chris or even she feels. People need to back-up and give them some space to breathe and re-think everything over. Put yourself in their shoes. Trust me it would not be pretty, to be put into a position where everything you do, whether it’s good or bad, can be twisted into something that is not. And believe it if you smack a guy in their face they will smack you back, that’s like messing with their ego and a matter of their respect as a man. No one should lose that respect and trust in a person, it’s really hard to bounce back from that. That kind of draws the beginning of a line as to where it says it’s okay to do it every time you argue or disagree on something. Well it’s not okay! You should always have that level of respect on each other.

Check out the photos below…

Well last but not least. I want to wish them both well and we hope this issue can go away soon. Good luck and we love you both.

Kiss Kiss,

Celebrity News: Chris Brown Shoots Hoops for Anti-Violence Campaign

Singer Chris Brown popped up Tuesday at a women’s basketball game in his home state of Virginia. The 19-year-old has been out of the spotlight following his alleged assault and against girlfriend Rihanna. Although one student described the star’s appearance as “bizarre,” Brown looked to be in good spirits posing for several photos with the basketball team.

According to TMZ, Brown visited the University of Mary Washington during the college’s “White Ribbon Campaign” which is dedicated to raising awareness about violence against women. Along with taking pictures Brown also shot a few baskets, which were captured on film by two students.

The R&B singer is currently free on $50,000 bail and faces two felony counts, which include assault and making criminal threats. Brown appeared in court last month and was granted a new arraignment date. While he has been in Virginia, Rihanna has been in Los Angeles. Several photos of the 21-year-old pop star partying and shopping for a new home have recently hit the news circuit.

Brown is due back in court April 6. Despite reports to the contrary Rihanna is cooperating with the Los Angeles District Attorney, and will take the stand against Brown if necessary.

Just In: Chris Brown’s New Private Court Date?

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.
