Chris Brown

The Real Problem Is Still Rihanna

10/29/2013 6:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Chris Brown got a hot meal after getting sprung from jail, and TMZ has learned ... his people aren't that worried about the misdemeanor assault charge -- they're WAY more concerned about the impact it will have on his probation status in the Rihanna case.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the charge against Chris was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor because the victim's injuries weren't that severe and witness statements conflicted.   The reality is -- worst case scenario ... Chris won't do any time for the assault.

The Rihanna case is much more problematic.  As we first reported, the L.A. County Probation Dept. is already conducting an investigation to determine if Chris violated his probation.  As one source familiar with the investigation tells us, "It's pretty clear he didn't keep his nose clean.  It sure seems like a violation."

The Probation Dept. will submit a report to the judge in the Rihanna case, and the D.A. will then weigh in -- based on what we know, they will almost certainly ask the judge to REVOKE Chris' probation. 

Worst case scenario for Chris ... if probation is revoked, 4 years in State prison.

He looks like he is on drugs. That's the real problem, that and his rage issues.

why would someone crash his photo shoots? You guys are all blind cos it,s Chris. What if this dude was right? Rihanna , was years back. How many of you guys can proudly say they never lifted a finger on there chics at that age. He has his opinion on gays and so do we all have on straight. This guy might have done nothing wrong but protecting himself against some muggers.

Oh, TMZ. His real problem is not Rihanna. The problem is what he did to Rihanna (he nearly killed her, remember?) and the pesky little fact that he's still on probation for that violent felony but thinks he can steal, throw things through windows, crash his car into anybody or anything, fake community service hours, and punch anybody without getting hauled in front of a judge for probation violation. His real problem is in his very own toddler head. If he just acted like a grownup and behaved himself until his probation is finished - he wouldn't risk getting tossed into prison for a few years and could live his little self-absorbed life without legal interference.

I can't believe I used to fancy this idiot he is a joke and pathetic person and tmz Rihanna is not the problem. I can't stand her but no one forced him to beat her black and blue so don't make out that it's hee fault. Any guy that puts a hand on a woman is s*** and I think it's wrong for woman to put their hands on men too. Him and Lohan need to be punished when they break the law. So what if their celebs? You do the crime you do the time simple.

Whatever    

This idiot always has his mouth open in pictures. Must be some kind of learning disability but it will come in handy in prison when he meets his new girlfriend.
