Chris Brown -- Let's Make a Deal

4/6/2009 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownChris Brown's lawyer and the prosecutor in the Rihanna case have been engaged in "serious" plea bargain negotiations and according to one source, a "deal is close."

We know Brown will plead not guilty today, however the plea may just be a formality.

Sources say Rihanna has made it clear she does not want to testify in the case and wants Brown to cop a plea. We're told one of the reasons she's in Barbados right now is because "she wants to be as far away from this case as possible."

As we first reported, Brown was inclined to plead either guilty or no contest to a misdemeanor, provided he got no jail time -- but since we broke that story, the D.A. and Mark Geragos, Brown's lawyer, have gotten down to the nitty gritty.

We do not know if Brown changed his view and would accept jail time to avoid a trial. Brown will be in court today for the arraignment.

This situation is not unique and we do not know the entire story. Personally, I believe it is obvious that they were in a mutual combat situation. They both are hot tempered. They both have reprtedly been violent or physical with each other in the past. If he is going to serve time than so should she... If the shamwow dude and his prostitue dont go to jail and their prosecutor throws the case out...so should this one... Either they both get in trouble or neither of them do.
If a woman doesnt want to get hit by a man ( or anyone else) than she shouldnt hit one. If you are going to hit a man, you should expect to get hit in return. Before you go getting your panties in a wad...I do not condone violence, but I will not for one second say that a man should sit there and let a woman hit him and he should do nothing to retalliate...Women should be held to the same standards as men. Violence shouldnt be tolerated by anyone....I am so sick of this story already...

I believe she took him back because when they were at diddy's house here best friend and cousin were both there. All of CB friends were there what else could she have done. Make up sex is the best. You notice how she hasn't said anything against him. They have been the best of friends for along time of course she forgave him and took him back.

Are you people stupid?.Of course nothing is going to happen to him.Just a slap in the wrist.He's BLACK and RICH.These people break laws and get away with it just because they were slaves 300 years ago.Look at the case of Donte Stallworth that killed the guy in Miami Beach,Florida.Stallwoth was drunk (.124 alcohol),speeding (55 on a 45 mph zone) but he's BLACK and RICH.Nothing is going to happen to him and the poor dead man.POOR,LATIN and HARDWORKING stays dead and his family (wife and 15 yo daughter) are forever sorry for this man senseless dearh by a BLACK,DRUNK,RICH,FOOTBALL PLAYER.Justice USA style.

JUSTICE FOR CHRIS- ARE YOU HIS MOMMY OR WANNA BE NEW GIRLFRIEND!
YOU ARE LIKE OUT THERE! THEIR WERE WITNESSES TO THE ABUSE WHERE THEY STOPPED THE CAR AND GOT OUT! I GUESS SHE HAD FAKE VAMPIRE BLOOD ALL OVER HER FACE! YOU ARE IN DENIAL!!!! JUST LIKE THE IDIOTS THAT STILL BELIEVE MICHAEL JACKSON IS INNOCENT. HE WASN'T FOUND INNOCENT HE WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY FROM THE EVIDENCE GIVEN. THE D.A. HAS A CASE AGAINST YOUR CHRIS BROWN. IF RHIANNA HAD LIED AND SHOWED NO EVIDENCE OF ABUSE THEY WOULD NOT BE WASTING THE TAX PAYERS MONEY ON HIM! CALIFORNIA IS IN DEBT. THIS IS A VIOLENT ACT, THAT IS WHY THEY ARE GOING AFTER HIM. IF HE'S SO INNOCENT WHY WOULD HE HAVE HIS ATTORNEY TRY TO GET A PLEA DEAL FROM THE D.A.?
THERE ARE MANY FORMS OF ABUSE IN THIS WORLD! ALOT OF THEM DON'T SHOW PHYSICAL BUT EMOTIONAL ABUSE!!!! JUSTICE FOR RHIANNA! JAIL FOR CHRIS BROWN THE P()SSY!

Theres NO excuse for Chris beating Rhi like that. He is bigger and stronger than her - if she attacked him first, all he had to do was either get out of there or grab her and hold her butt down until she calmed down, either of which is how a REAL man would have handled it. But for him to beat down a girl like that tells everyone he's NOT a real man, he's nothing but a punk @$$ bi+[# that deserves NO respect.

oh i see JUSTICE FOR CHRIS is at it again. i hope u're getting paid for the amount of time u spend defending this douchebag. the reason no one answers u anymore is because they have answered u b4 over and over again but all u do in return is repost ur stupid reasons and ask "why doesn't anyone answer me"? so here's an advice stop making up excuses for a criminal because karma will get back at u and kick u in ur ass and just wait till tomorrow. coz all the BS u write isnt gonna help him. he's in the hands of the DA now.

Everyone on here making really mean and judgmental comments, may god be with you. You guys dont have to answer to Chris Brown..You have to answer to God at the end of the day he does not like this at all..only chris brown rihanna and God know what happened that night...i hope everything goes well for chris tomorrow..im not saying he should have hit her but there is always two sides to every story, and it always takes two to tangle!

ps    

No he doesnt deserve jail time.....he's a frickin 19 yr old kid not man that made a stupid stupid mistake....let him go to classes and anger management , put him on probation and if he would do it again then throw him in jail but sorry i dont think he deserves jail time.....i've seen people drink and drive and commit manslaughter and not get jail time, which im sorry is definitely a bigger crime. yes he beat her up and definitely went way to far but see if something else works. Pray just pray he learns his lesson....I believe everyone deserves 1 chance to make it right.

DESPITE WHAT YOU SAY, NO ONE HAS ANSWERED ANY OF MY QUESTIONS!!

NOT A SINGLE ONE OF YOU HAS ADDRESSED HOW OR WHY A BATTERED WOMAN WOULD SIT ON THE KEYS?

TO THE IDIOT NAMED CHRIS, WHERE WAS THE BLOOD? DO YOU MEAN THAT LITTLE SPOT THAT WAS FOUND IN THE LAMBOURGHINI? I GET THAT MUCH BLOOD FROM A SPLINTER IN MY FINGER.

IF THE EVIDENCE WAS SO OVERWHELMING HE WOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH BATTERRY ON THE DATE THAT THE INCIDENT OCCURED, NOT A WHOLE 3 WEEKS LATER. IF THEY REALLY HAD SOMETHING WHY DID THE DA REFUSE IT THE FIRST TIME--EVERYTHING THAT THEY HAVE TODAY THEY HAD ON THE NIGHT OF THE "ALLEGED" ATTACK. IF THERE WAS SO MUCH BLOOD, DON'T YOU IDIOTS KNOW THAT HE WOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH ASSAULT WHEN HE TURNED HIMSELF IN, NOT AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE ON THE DAY THAT HE WAS ARRAIGNED--FOR THE LONGEST NOBODY EVEN THOUGHT THAT HE WOULD BE CHARGED!!!!!

THERE WAS NO BLOOD IN THAT PICTURE-JUST THE TWO BUMPS ON HER FOREHEAD AND A BUSTED LIP--THAT IS ALL!!!

REAL BATTERED WOMEN ARE CALLING IN TO RADIO SHOWS ALL OVER THE NATION TALKING ABOUT HOW HER INJURIES DO NOT COMPARE TO THE REAL BEATDOWNS THAT THEY HAD BEEN GIVEN, AND THEY WERE NOT STUCK IN A CAR WITH THEIR ATTACKERS. LOOK AT THE SHAM WOW VICTIM--NOW THAT'S A BEATDOWN FOR YOUR ASS!!!!!

SHE STARTED A FIGHT WHILE HE WAS DRIVING-HE DEFENDED HIMSELF AND LEFT HER STUPID ASS IN THE CAR AND SHE GOT MAD!!!

YOU ALL ARE THE ONES THAT ARE DELUSIONAL!!!YOU'RE JUST SO DETERMINED TO MAKE THIS MAN SEEM LIKE A MONSTER WHEN
1. RIHANNA (THE GUN-TATOO WOMAN WHO SITS ON HER ATTACKER'S KEYS)
2. THE GENERAL PUBLIC
3. JAY-Z, DIDDY, NEYO AND THE ENTIRE MUSIC INDUSTRY

KNOWS WHO THE REAL ABUSER IS::

KEEP LIVING IN DENIAL LYNCH MOB!!!! SOON AND VERY SOON YOU WILL SEE THE TRUTH!!! WHEN YOU DO, GO HIDE YOUR FACES IN SHAME!!!!!
