4/6/2009 7:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown has just pled not guilty to two felonies -- assault and making criminal threats.

Chris Brown: Click to watch
With ex girlfriend Rihanna nowhere in sight, Brown showed up at L.A. County criminal courthouse to face the music for allegedly beating the crap out of her back in February.

Sources inside the courtroom say Chris' mom spent the entire preliminary hearing either in tears or praying for her 19-year-old son. We're told a handful of Chris' friends and four bodyguards were also there to show support.

Brown is due back in court on April 29.

Chris Brown looks worried/scared throughout the whole thing. His lawyer is f'n fool for having him plea not guilty and like mentioned before, I don't get how they could not work something out in that extra 30 days. For what? Ugh!!! This whole thing is so f'n stupid. From the looks of Chris Brown, he looks very confused about everything. His PR people should be fired too, for not advising him to make statement earlier no more than a few days after the incident, even the next day. This whole thing doesn't make sense. From the statement, from the late reply from the PR people, from the whole silent treatment for the past 2 months. Something is just not right with this whole situation. There is something that Chris Brown and Rihanna are hiding from the public.

#81 Yeah Right: ......Sh*t man, I’m no queer or troll as you put it. Never been with a guy and not planning on it. I’m just saying what most of us straight guys are too scared or shame to admit in public. If you’re a real dude that really likes to f*ck, then you know as well as I do that given the right time and place (especially if no females are around) we’d both f*ck a guy that looks as good and as feminine as Chris Brown. That sh*t doesn’t make you gay, it just means you like to f*ck. Too bad you’re too much of a prick to admit the real truth about your libido. Unless YOU’RE the one that’s queer and don’t like sweet, wet, pink, tight p*ssy, but prefers to choke on a d*ck. For the rest of us real men, ass is ass.

TO THE STUPID ASSED IDIOT NAMED CB ACTING LIKE A CHICKEN?

TO ANSWER YOUR FIRST IDIOTIC QUESTION, YES I DO KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE A BATTERED WOMAN AND I KNOW WHAT A BATTERED WOMAN, A WOMAN WHO HAS BEEN PUNCHED IN THE FACE LOOKS LIKE. WHOEVER TOLD YOU THAT THE INJURIES DON'T SHOW UP IMMEDIATELY TOLD YOU A DAMN LIE BECUASE I KNOW. NOT PROUD TO SAY IT BUT I'VE BEEN BLACK AND BLUE AND THAT'S HOW I KNOW WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT RIHANNA IS TELLING FLAT OUT LIES!!!!

WASN'T THE SHAM WOW VICTIM MUGSHOT TAKEN RIGHT AFTER THE INCIDENT OCCURED. WASN'T HER FACE ALL BLACK AND BLUE? ISN'T RIHANNA'S SKIN FAIR STUPID. IF HE PUNCHED HER EVEN ONCE HER FACE WOULD LOOK LIKE THAT---SHE WASN'T PUNCHED AND YOU KNOW IT!!!!

ABOUT THE MENTALITY OF A BATTERED WOMAN IDIOT-TRUST ME!!! A BATTERED WOMAN IS TOO AFRAID TO EVEN BREATHE WHEN SHE IS STUCK IN A CAR WITH HER ATTACKER!!!! THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL THAT HE WOULD LET HER PICK UP THE PHONE-HE'D KNOCK IT OUT OF HER HAND. BUT IF HE DID ALLOW HER TO PICK UP THE PHONE-A BATTERED WOMAN WOULD DEFINITELY NOT SAY "HAVE THE POLICE WAITING WHEN I GET HOME"
(ALL OF THIS IS ACCORDING TO HER AFFADAVIT-WHY DON'T YOU READ IT DUMB ASS BEFORE YOU MAKE POSTS)
A BATTERED WOMAN IS NOT GOING TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE POLICE BECAUSE SHE KNOWS THAT HE WOULD TEAR HER ASS UP IN THAT CAR!!!! THERE'S NOWHERE TO RUN--SHE'S IN A CAR. ANYBODY WHO IS AFRAID WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT!!!

WOMEN WHO ARE ABUSED ARE AFRAID OF THEIR ABUSERS!!!THIS IS HER AFFADAVIT-HER WORDS-AND THERE IS NO FEAR IN IT: I'VE BEEN THERE AND I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT YOU WOULD NOT:

1. BE ABLE TO MAKE A FAKE CALL (HE'D KNOCK THE PHONE OUT OF YOUR HAND)
2. MENTION THE POLICE (YOU'D BE TOO SCARED, THERE'S NO WHERE FOR YOU TO RUN-YOU'RE IN A MOVING CAR)
3. AND SIT ON THE KEYS:

A BATTERED WOMAN IS AFRAID: THIS HEIFER IS IN COMBAT AND YOU KNOW IT!!! SO WHEN YOU ASK ME IF I'VE BEEN THERE HELL YEAH!!!! AND THAT'S HOW I KNOW THAT THIS MESS IS NOT ADDING UP!!!

INSTEAD OF BASHING ME FOR POINTING OUT THE OBVIOUS-WHY DON'T YOU LOOK AT THAT AFFADAVIT THEN LOOK AT THAT PICTURE AND SEE HOW STUPID YOU HAVE BEEN.

I DO AGREE WITH YOU THAT VIOLENCE IS VIOLENCE AND THERE SHOULD BE NO LEVEL OR NO MEASURE-BUT IF HE WAS DRIVING AND SHE ATTACKED AND HE PUSHED HER OFF AND SHE HIT HER HEAD AND LIP ON THE DASHBOARD THAT COULD HAVE CAUSED EVERY SINGLE INJURY THAT SHE HAS: WHAT SHE SAYS IN THE AFFADAVIT IS NOT TRUE-THAT'S OBVIOUS SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL ACCEPT THAT. SO IF SHE LIED ABOUT ALL OF THAT, THEN WHO HONESTLY KNOWS WHAT THE TRUTH IS? I KNOW WHAT IT IS NOT-SHE WASN'T PUNCHED IN THE FACE-THE PICTURE TELLS THE STORY!!!!

Chris Brown was a coward the night he beat on Rihanna and a coward today when he refused to own up to his crime. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and the pictures of Rihanna battered face speaks volumes. I say to Rihanna who is obviously still suffering about this whole situation and trying to put on a brave front. Take time to heal girl, get counsel so that you don't spin out of control, don't get caught up in the street life, it will chew you up and spit you out. There is someone out there who will treat you with the respect and love you deserve and it won't cause you any pain. To Chris, I wished I lived in LA and was lucky enough to be on your jury, you would get the max for the felony you committed.
The next girl you hit, I hope she has a real GUN and take you out of your misery. You insecure jerk....

@ JUSTICE FOR CHRIS
OMG are u serious? u're telling me u believe that all this crap that happened is all untrue and what actually happened is her hitting her face on the dashboard. if all her injuries came from her hitting her face on the dashboard there would be no way in hell she doesnt end up with a broken nose. i mean to hit the flat dashboard with such a force as to cause forehead contusions, eye bruises, plus cuts to your lip, ur nose had to be broken because it would be sitting in the way so ur explanation doesnt make any sense.

and really do u really think if chris wasnt guilty in this he would have let it drag out this long and keep his image tarnished. don't you think if he had just given her one big head push they would have worked out a plea deal by now.

and just for the record u are being such a hypocrite with the affadavit. u are willing to believe about the fake call, and the keys crap but u don't wanna believe the hits that she endured and the fact that he called her assistant two days later asking if she mentioned his name. it's either u believe it all or don't believe it at all. u say that the picture isn't proof of the hits cited then where is the proof of the fake call and her sitting on the keys? again u either take it all or take nothing.

and please with the bruises u mentioned, i study in the medical industry and i know how long it takes to get bruises. different people may get them at different times but believe me most people don't show blue and black colors in an hour.

and u're telling me "she wasn't punched in the face". does it really matter if he used his fists on her face or if he used his fists on the back of her head to jam her head on the dashboard? i mean violence is violence. it's like u're telling me that it's okay to kick someone in the butt but not kick them in the stomach. i mean are u serious.

u also claim a battered woman does not fake call the police and sit on the keys. i say an innocent man would not beat someone up and then flee the scene. AN INNOCENT MAN WOULD HAVE SLAMMED ON THE DAMN BRAKES, GOT OUT OF THAT CAR, AND IF THE OTHER PERSON WAS HITTING HE WOULD HAVE CALLED THE POLICE AND HAVE HER ARRESTED. now that man should plead not guilty. on the other hand the guy here is guilty as hell but trying to get away with what he did which in hollywoodland is expected. but don't go saying he is not guilty. because he is AND YOU KNOW IT.

It does not matter if she is a whore or if she did anything to anger him. He is Trash, no matter how much money he has...he will always be a cowardly piece of trash. There is never a reason to strike a woman. Simple as that. A real man, a real christian will always turn the other cheek and would not harm another person, let alone a female. So while he now back paddles...he will never escape his deeds.

Ok, we know he's a dirtbag idiot. But really, what's up with the twee cardigan? He looks like a sissy.

To #100 Bonnie:...Yeah, he does look like a sissy doesn't he? And I bet he will soon be f*cked in the ass like one as soon as they throw his punk ass in jail. They’ll show him just what to do with that tight, sweet, pink a**hole and those big, d*ck sucking lips. He’s a f*cking queer and should be raped like one. Maybe that’ll teach him not to put his m*therf*cking hands on a women. What he needs is a REAL man to shove his hard d*ck so far up his butt hole that he can taste it in his mouth. He’ll never hit another woman again.

I think they were both at fault for putting their hands on each other. If you think about it Rhianna had marks on the the right side of her face and she was sitting on the passenger side of the car. So, that tells me if Chris was driving and puching her she would have to have been facing him. Which makes me think she was punching him too. He would only have one hand to hit her and if she wasn’t hitting him back she would only have marks on the left side of her body. Everyone keeps saying he beat her but I’ve also been in a conflict with a man before when I slapped him or hit him, I was just lucky enough to be with a man that didn’t hit me back. Now that I’m older I know I was wrong and when I think back on it he could have hit me back and hurt me. I was wrong but people some kind of way think it’s okay for women to hit men as much as you like and they are not to hit you back. Well, I am now a mom of a teenage son, and he’s broken up with girls and because he has some of them would tell him that they would hit him if they see him again or scratch his face up. I raised him it’s not right to hit a girl or a woman but you don’t just sit there and let them beat you or scratch you up, try to leave or lock yourself in a room. I understand why people feel they way they do about what Chris Brown has done, but it really blows me away that no one thinks Rhianna was also wrong for hitting him also. I taught my child not to put his hands on anyone and I don’t want anyone putting their hands on him.

londongirl    

Thank you all you people who are saying he should go to jail cos EVERY abuser should, as you're all saying you want HER to go to jail too because she ADMITTED she'd been violent to him on several occasions, so you want her locked up too right?? oh whats that? no? becauseshe's a woman? isn't that a bit hypocritical? what if it was your son then? would you want her locked up then? lol If he is guilty of hitting her this time then shes guilty for hitting him on this time AND in the past, which she admitted HERSELF. but you lot who are calling for blood never say anything about that do you.
