Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty

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.

I love how sexism is not dead! Women should be treated equally to men BUT more importantly equally to each other. Wether a whore or a nun it does not warrent any type of disrespect. Women have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies and no one (man or woman) has the authority to take their control away. What Rhianna does in her sex life and personal has nothing to do with being beaten up. They are seperate issues and can not be used as an excuse. Equally the argument that because she is a woman she is automatically a victim. This case needs to be veiwed as two humanbeings rather than a man and a woman.

@ dingdingding
i think you need a couple of dingdingdings on ur head. he is not found innocent. he plead not guilty bcoz he is not man enough to face his mistakes and bcoz if he did he would be in jail right now for 4 years. he is trying his best to get away with minimal charges.
the fact though that u think he is innocent is appalling. who the hell beat rihanna up in ur mind? the car door?

Man up Chris, accept responsibility for your actions. Publically condemning what ypu did and accepting whatever the punishment is, is the ONLY way to put this behind you.

#20 - are you retarded? He wasn't there because he "cared", he was there because the court ordered him to be there. Had he been in Cabo, as you say, he'd be skipping his bail you imbicile. Honestly, is the education system in america seriously as poor as the people that write on this website lead us to believe?

There is NO REASON or EXCUSE to hit anyone. How in the world can someone plead not guilty when the phone calls and photos show otherwise?! For him to plead not guilty, shows me that he takes NO responsibility for his actions. I thought he's only 19, plead guilty and then get rehabbed. I don't believe you can get anyone any kind of help if they don't admit to what they've done wrong in the first place. He's trouble and we'll be hearing more from him in the news, and believe me it won't be good.

for everyone out there who says rhianna is bad and that chris is the good guy, geeez, who in there right mind thinks that it is ever okay to lay a hand on anyone. it doesnt matter whether your male or female, nobody should touch anyone that is going to cause them harm,what are we teaching our younger generation?. its ok to hit someone if they say or do anything wrong.Chris Bron wont go to prison because hes a celebrity. VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN OR MEN, THE WORLD SAYS NO !!!!!!!!!!!!

So called 'justiceforChrisBrown' you should be the last to come on referring to anyone as an ass with your assinine ranting. It seems that women who were beaten like to support men that beat women; you're soooo used to it you don't know decency or decent behaviour if it slaped you in the face (no pun intended). Because a man beat you 'black and blue' does not mean that a woman who was aattacked and is not black and blue wasn't beaten, A-Hole. Was common sense beaten out of you?

As for his mother, why was she crying out her eyes when he roughed her up too in a hotel? Only God knows how he behaved when away from public places. Good that he got called out on this one. I like some of Rhianna's music but it seems that just like Chris' mother she was willing to let his borish behave be given a pass. Good on whoever called the cops.

I hope he does jail or is ordered to pay her compensation for pain and suffering and loss of income (she missed the Grammy's, two concerts and who knows what else). He is of no frame of mind to talk to anyone about domestic violence. He is a fraud. Loook how he did the opposite to what he said on Tyra's show. Punk-assed idiot.

There is no "reason" he did this.
It's wrong period, end of discussion.
And I wonder if his Mom cried when she saw the pictures of her son's actions.
I hope so.

POS, he MAY have gotten some respect from people back and a hope of salvaging his career if he plead guilty, admitted what he did was wrong and sought help. I would NEVER take a man back who hit me PERIOD, but if he was unwilling to take ANY responsibility, NEVER EVER. Rihanna will loose a huge fan base as well if she allows this pos to not only beat her but not take any responsibility for it. And I don't care if she's a bitch, hit him first, if you are a man which he is not or could ever hope to be, you walk away, you don't beat the scrap out of, choke unconscious, and threaten to kill someone.

Lock him up and throw away the key! He's shown he's nothing more than a low life dirt bag.

THIS CASE DOESN'T CONSTITUTE TWO FELONY CHARGES. YOU ARE CRAZY IF YOU THINK THAT CHRIS WOULD HANG HIMSELF ON FELONY CHARGES. IF THIS CASE GOES TO TRIAL HE WOULD NOT BE CHARGED. THE D.A. AND PROSECUTORS KNOW THAT THEY HAVE NO CASE ON FELONY CHARGES. ASSAULT/ BATTERY THEY WOULD HAVE A BETTER CHANCE BUT TO PUT THIS CASE IN THE CATEGORY OF FELONY CHARGES IS BEYOND ME. THEY ARE CALLING THE D.A. AND PROSECUTORS BLUFF. NO WAY! NO WAY! THIS CASE SHOULD OF BEEN GIVEN TWO FELONY CHARGES. PLEASE PEOPLE EDUCATE YOUSELVES ON THE LAW BECAUSE THE D.A. IS GOING TO WAIST THE TAX PAYERS MONEY OVER SOMETHING THAT WOULD OF BEEN OVER WITH BY NOW.THIS IS CRAZY PEOPLE! CHRIS IS DOING THE RIGHT THING IN NOT GIVEN IN TO TWO FELONY CHARGES BECAUSE IT DOESN'T CONSTITUTE FELONY CHARGES. WHY WOULD CHRIS PLEAD GUILTY TO A CHARGE THAT IS NOT FAIR? CAN ANYONE ANSWER THAT QUESTION?
