Chris Brown -- How Quickly The Famous Forget

5/27/2009 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaq invited him to play basketball in his private gym, Usher took him to an NBA playoff game, Bow Wow even helped him shoot a YouTube video -- seems like Chris Brown is finally out of celebrity exile.

Chris Brown

At first it was hard to find a celebrity who would take a stand on the incident at all, but now -- just three months after he allegedly beat the crap out of Rihanna -- he's back in the "in-crowd," like the whole thing never happened. He's even dropping an album.

We don't expect Chris is gonna have a sit-down dinner with Jay-Z any time soon... but at this point, would you really be surprised?

He'll always be known as a woman beater. Thank you TMZ for releasing that photo of Rhianna or else people would've just downplayed the whole thing.

What he did was wrong. Its something i will never forget, But at the same time he needs to learn from his mistakes. For him to do that to Rihanna, he must have anger issues and problems that he needs to get help with. He should be allowed to have friends though. I honestly dont think he is a monster I think hes a troubled young adult who needs help. I dont think his career will ever be the same and its sad because he is talented and now all is potential will never become a reality. I think he deserves a chance to be able to bounce back from this. It seems like people want him to not have any friends, have no career, and be constantly reminded of this which im sure he is. Nobody knows honestly what happened that night but im sure Rihanna and Chris Brown both want to move on with their lives. and no i've never been hit or abused before.

Anyone with sense is sick of seeing her ugly attention seeking mug in every paper or magazine they look at and are happy to be seeing his beautiful face again!i'm delighted he's back. People need to get over what happened months ago. What he did was wrong but its done now..move on!

Shame on you Shaquille O'Neal. Don't you have children of your own? Mr. " I wanna be A POLICEMAN." I guess that is Old Skool Policing, where they looked the other way while the woman was beat to a pulp. So sad.
Shame on Bow Wow, you are not doing your own reputation any good.
I do not know who that third fame whore is.
Chris Brown has pled Not Guilty, he is not taking responsibility. If he had checked himself into Rehab for Woman Beating, the public might be more sympathetic.
I would NEVER listen to any of his music again.
Just like I never listen to Michael Jackson anymore. His crimes destroyed the pleasure of his talent. I just feel disgusted when I hear a Michael Jackson song. Thank God Chris Brown is a mediocre, dime a dozen talent, so many others to listen to.
Think about it .......... if you purchase their music, YOU support them and their misdeeds. But don't worry Chris, from many of the comments here, there are a number of stupid fame sluts lining up to take your abuse, gladly.

CB made a big mistake bit hitting Rihanna. Only the two of them know exactly what happened, If CB ends up having to spend sometime in jail then maybe he deserves it and that'll make him learn his lesson. I do feel that people need to get over this though. NO ONE IS PERFECT, we all make mistakes in life and deserve a second chance. Im sure some of you posting messages here have had situations like this happen in your own house, I know I have. SO, Im not saying that people should forget what he did but do give him a second chance. Life is too short people, move on!

wtf    

i think we should find out what she said to him right before he beat the hell out of her.

she might have said something REALLY out of line.

we shouldn't be so fast to judge him until we know the whole story.

@ Michelle how sad you sound. You are an educated black female then do the research and look at the stats on domestic abuse for every race. Guess you have to stop dating and join a convent because they all have abusers in them. Also the fact that you only date outside your race shows how closed minded you are and probably how much you actually hate yourself. As far as Chris Brown...most of you didn't buy is music at first (neither did I) so it's not like he gives a care how you feel. He should not have hit her....SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE HIT HIM...it happened and the justice system and his God will decide his fate so STFU please...and thank you

@9...you want to date out of your race fine,but don't use this incedent as an exuse. You've obviously wanted to do this for a long time. There are plenty of good black men out there. You just aren't looking in the right places.

Beat Down Brown is Going Down    

POINT ONE: A lot of these guys are just as bad as he is about how they treat women. They have a low opinion of women and they feel like they are superior to women. Even Shaq. If they ever slapped a woman around they were just smarter about getting caught. They avoided beating up high profile famous women.
POINT TWO: Chris Brown is more then another singer. He writes and he produces and his songs make money. THAT is what it's all about. $$$$$.If Chris Brown doesn't make money for other people, they will drop him. So don't buy his songs.Even if they are written for someone else. YOu want Chris to "go away" don't support him.
