Chris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has just filed legal papers asking the LAPD to ante up info on leaks in the case.



Geragos wants the information so he can decide whether to file a motion to dismiss the case against Brown, on grounds of misconduct by law enforcement.

One of the items Geragos wants to know about -- how TMZ got the photo of a battered Rihanna.

loving RiRi    

I agree with Sherry #30...Teach your own sons a lesson in life and how to treat women. Chris may not go to jail, but he will pay a price far worse than jail. Good luck--you're gonna need it Chris.

Why dont you people just explain why in a fight one person who didnt start the fight goes to jail and the person who started the fight walks. if rihanna is so sure chris deserves jail why does she want a deal and not trial so we can all know what really happened.
You can all live in denial as long as you want and believe the pic is the worst you ever saw but bottomline an agressive insecure woman goes crazy on a guy behind the wheels; none of you would have done differently if not they probably both be dead or maybe killed a passerby and then chris will be the murderer. Rihanna should be asking for trial badly if she is innocent not desperate for a deal.
Plus i never knew there were so many perfect and concerned citizens in the world...what other assult case are you guys so passionate about?

while teaching your sons how to treat a woman; you should also pray he doesnt hook up wih an aggressive & insecure woman and please teach your daughters how to treat a man also. its is equally despicable for a woman to hit a man i mean what kind of woman does that? chris's career is going nowhere but up cos careers are determined by fans not the media and you all better believe chris has his fans and new ones are joining. you are all going to be shocked when all this is over and chris makes his first appearance...we love you boi; you are always the greatest!

#29&30
I am a woman but definitely not aggressive so i can never put myself in rihanna's shoes cos i would never do want she does. we are talking about a woman who in an interview described herself as aggressive and possessive, said she broke a bottle on her brothers head in a fight cos she was angry? no way, she aint nothing like me. so before you guys start telling women to look in the mirror better remember who she is. if a woman hits a man and gets hit right back she asked for it and vice versa. what do you mean by it doesnt matter what she did, a man should never hit a woman? that is the most ridiculous statement i have been hearing and i hope all you women are not abusers cos thats the only rational for that statement. a woman doesnt deserve to be hit back when she hits but a man deserves to be hit when he doesnt even hit, rite?
so you saying someone hitting you while you driving doesnt put your life in danger? or that it aint abuse until we see bruises? i think you guys should think before you comment. be objective and not emotional. i dont jump to conclusions cos a man hit a girl; cos its about someone [not a woman] getting hit cos......details are necessary, you cant judge a case without details simple as that. we dont know what happened and the affidavt isnt what happened its what the police thinks happened looking at the crime scene people. get off chris's back.

Just another stunt by the lawyer, anything to keep attention away from the photo and the fact that his client beat her face. I can't see how the release of that photo gets him a walk for what he did but then this is California so anything is possible.

I would love to see all the photos blown up to poster size and displayed to the jury during the trial. The judge might try to seal the record but my bet is they are so dramatic that some agency like TMZ will get their hands on them and publish.

Cris should start thinking what this will do to his future if it happens and do the right thing, admit he did it and take whatever punishment the court decides.

hate her    

Sherry,

You get mad and say that Chris beat Rihanna to a pulp based on the picture that we all saw, then when I prove to you that she wasn't beaten to a pulp based on the picture that we saw, then that makes you angry too.

I don't care how mad you get, two bruises on her forehead (where she obviously hit her head on something because no human could possibly be that precise) and a busted lip is not being beaten to a pulp. Now if we talk about the prostitute who was beaten by SHAM WOW then now you're talking about a beatdown.

If those bruises on her forehead were made by him smashing her face into the window, shouldn't there be at least a crack in the window?

As somebody else mentioned, she beat her own brother over the head with a bottle. No abuser is going to allow you the opportunity to make a fake call to your assistant!

Why are you so determined to make Chris out to be an abuser when, as the case unfolds, it's obvious that what was said is not true. She's admitted that she's aggressive, her affadavit makes no sense, and the bottom line is just that she was mad and vengeful. She doesn't want to testify because she was telling lies.

oh my gosh all of u people that are going on and on and on about TMZ and the photos and how insignificant Ri's injuries were and how she provoked him yada yada yada it does not matter who did what except that HE hit her, I just hope that some of you have daughters or sisters or another important person in your life that is attacked by her male friend?? and then you will sing a diferent tune..the bottom line is all attorney's try the blame game and CA seems to let everyone off Hello OJ and for the poster that urged Chris to move to Vegas right on !they seem to get it right..so Chris should be made to pay the piper!

HATERS F IN GET OVER IT
DID HE HURT YOU ,NO!! DID HE HURT YOUR SISTER OR FAMILY MEMBER, NO!!!
Everytime TMZ does a story on Chris Brown, all the haters come running on
If Rihanna, who he actually hit is able to move on, so should everyone else.
What happens in her life doesn't effect us and whether he goes to jail or not, it won't make a difference to anyone's life
who comments. At least the fans can enjoy his music unlike the typical Woman/wife beaters who beat on their woman, everyday, one occasion doesn't make you one of them, give the young man a break, it's so boring now
DON'T YOU HATERS GET BORED WITH HATING???

There's only so much that a woman can do when she's angry. She can cry her eyes out, Scream at the top of her lungs, Go Shopping or***Smack, scratch, kick, and slap the person that made her angry. Let women continue to think it's o.k. to hit a man. Teach your daughters to "get physical" to get your way, when the tears don't work. Go Ahead!...But remember this, when your standing over her casket at her funeral, SHE WAS NEVER TAUGHT SELF CONTROL, because not every man or person it o.k. with getting attacked.

When a man abuses a woman and the woman endures it for years, it's always understood WHY she snaps and picks up a double-barrel and cleans his clock while he's asleep. And with the right attorney, she can walk within a year. Why? Because the abuse victim eventually gets the empathy of the jury because, after the abuser is DEAD, or the abuser's actions are on trial, then the full scope of their actions come into play and everyone learns of how a slap, lead to a finger in the face, lead to a punch or a hit with an object (spike heel shoe). Keep thinking you can just walk away from an attack. It's not always as simple as it sounds. Especially when you leave the person that's attacking you in good enough condition to follow you and keep attacking you (duh).

And I to believe that a close source of Rihanna leaked that photo. I also agree with the few that think that she bruised herself after Chris walked away. Scorned women can do things that you could never imagine.

But I'm not even a potential juror, so I'll just have to wait and see if I'm right.

IT'S SIMPLY BECAUSE CHRIS BROWN IS A YOUNG SUCCESSFUL BLACK MAN, IS WHY THE LIKES OF TMZ AND MOST OF THE HATERS, FIND IT FUN HATING ON A YOUNG MAN LIKE CHRIS, THE HATERS KEEP GOING ON ABOUT HIM HITTING RIHANNA, HE HIT HIS GIRLFRIEND OUT OF ANGER BECAUSE HE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO CONTROL HIS EMOTIONS, WITH ANYTHING HE WILL LEARN FOM THIS EXPERIENCE AND MOVE ON.

QUESTION TO ALL THE HATERS, WHAT FUN ARE YOU ACTUALLY GETTING OUT ON HATING ON CHRIS, DID HE ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING TO YOU? I KNOW MOST OF YOU PEOPLE WHO COMMENT NEGATIVE, DON'T ACTUALLY CARE FOR RIHANNA AND IF HE HIT SOMEONE WHO WASN'T A CELEBRITY LIKE RIHANNA, THIS STORY WOULD OF BEEN FORGETTEN BY NOW, WHATEVER THE OUTCOME CHRIS HAS A LOT OF SUPPORT OUT THERE, STILL HAS MANY FANS AND WILL HAVE A CAREER STILL,

HE WILL STILL BE RICH AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO WHAT HE DOES BEST, WHEN THIS COURT CASE THING ENDS, YOU CAN HATE AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE BUT THE MAN HAS ACHIEVED A LOT IN HIS 20YRS, WHAT HAVE YOU HATERS ACHIEVED, NOT MUCH COMPARE TO CHRIS, SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DON'T HATE ON OTHERS, THEY GET ON THEIR BUSINESS AND KEEP IT MOVING BECAUSE THERE'S NO REASON FOR THEM TO BE JEALOUS, LIKE THE HATERS

Injuries??? Her injuries were consistent with Chris' version of the story. Unless he measured her head from side to side and drew a line to ensure an absolute equal but opposite location of the bruise on each side of crazy's head I'm convinced of his story, she hit her head on the dash (main injury) the slap=self defense or car wreck if you don't stop this crazy bi#@.
